About Microneedling with Dermapen 4:

Dermapen 4 glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other microneedling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn, our body’s natural response triggers a natural process of repair. The result is an increased production of collagen and elastin, resurfacing, retexturizing and overall skin renewal anywhere on the body.

The Science behind Microneedling:

The controlled microinjury created by the dermapen 4 microneedling device allows the body to simulate the wound healing process in a controlled manner whereby it generates new healthy collagen and elastin as it heals itself revealing plumper, healthier and firmer skin.

What can I treat with Dermapen Microneedling?

Scarring: A scar is composed of a different type of collagen that is thicker and laid haphazardly usually when the body believes it needs to repair something quickly.  Dermapen microneedling over scar tissue stimulates the production of new collagen through controlled microinjuries which allows the fibroblasts time to lay down this new collagen in a structured way.

Stretch Marks: Dermapen microneedling over stretch marks can initiate healing and promote the growth of new skin.

How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation and acne?

Rejuvenation*: 3-6 treatments 6-8 weeks apart

Pigmentation: 4-6 treatments 2-4 weeks apart

Pre-procedure for Microneedling:

2-3 days: Waxing, threading, shaving

1 week: self-tanning/ spray, actives in skincare

2 weeks: Toxins, dissolvable dermal filler, superficial peels, microdermabrasion, IPL, laser hair removal

6 weeks: non-dissolvable dermal filler ie) Radiesse, Sculptra

8 weeks: Medium/deep peel, CO2 and other ablative lasers, radiofrequency

The Microneedling Procedure:

Topical numbing cream can be applied upon request. It is always applied if we are treating at higher needle depths.

Before and after photos are always taken at each session to monitor your progress.

Before commencing treatment, your skin is cleansed and the clinician would have already determined the depth of needle penetration and number of courses you will require based on your personal treatment goals ie) if you have significant acne scarring, more sessions will be needed and at a deeper needle depth.

The dermapen glides over your skin at an incredibly fast speed creating 1300 microchannels per second! Most clients describe it as a rubberband being twanged.

Your Dermapen 4 microneedling treatment only uses sterile, single-use consumables throughout the procedure, ensuring complete health and safety.

After the treatment is complete and whilst the puncture holes are still open, if you opt for our free UBER PRO PEEL to boost the results, this is applied for up to 5 minutes before a face mask enriched with copper peptides, hyaluronic acid, pro-vitamin B5 and zinc is applied. Your skin will then be treated with a vitamin repair cream and sunscreen applied before you leave.

Microneedling Side Effects:

There may be some blood and possibly some mild bruising if we are treating at deeper levels for more troublesome skin problems etc.

There is generally no downtime but you may experience facial redness or feel increased heat in your face for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. There will be some blood and possibly some mild bruising if we are treating at deeper levels for more troublesome skin problems. Application of the Uber Pro Peel may account for some tingling, mild burning and redness during the procedure as well as mild redness and mild flaky skin for 3-5 days after.

Microneedling with Dermapen Results:

 Lasting and more significant results will become visible after 3 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-8 weeks apart). The condition of your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments, especially as part of a combination therapy that includes good regular skincare.

Aftercare for Microneedling:

Typically, patients experience 36-48 hours of mild to moderate sunburn in appearance and sensation following their treatment.

During the healing process, minor itching, hives, some flaking, or redness may appear. If symptoms persist, please call us.

Do not pick, squeeze or agitate the skin during the recovery period.

I had booked in for a skincare consultation with Dr Zoya, I can honestly say it was one of the most thorough consultations I’ve had. Dr Zoya is very knowledgeable in her field and is passionate about skincare, she analysed my skin and explained the issues I have and suggested products that may help and some in clinic treatments. I didn’t feel rushed or any pressure to purchase any products or services I received a comprehensive skin care plan by email, what I liked was everything was itemised and you can pick and choose any items to purchase, also the steps in which to use the products Am/Pm. Dr Zoya is a lovely warm welcoming lady I felt completely at ease, the clinic is beautiful and very relaxing, reception staff also very warm and welcoming. Overall a very positive informative consultation, look forward to starting my treatments.

Amazing service! Highly recommend it! Maryam is lovely and made me feel so welcome since I stepped in. Felt so spoiled having sat in a massage chair, having coffee and chocolate & watching Netflix while I was waiting for my appointment. Then was seeing by Tara who is amazing and very attentive. She then explained me everything about the treatment I wanted to do and also had a good look on my skin and sent me a personalised skin care recommendation.

I recently visited Dr Zoya for lip filler, I have been getting lip filler for over four years and I can confidently say she’s the best! She takes her time to analyse and assess your lips, we had an honest conversation about what’s best for me, the look I was trying to achieve and I felt really positive about her advice. I’m over the moon with the results. She is the best at what she does and couldn’t recommend more!
