Kickstart your collagen and improve the tone, texture and tightness of your skin.
Dermapen skin needling creates skin micro-trauma resulting in an intense collagen stimulating process which helps to restore a healthy, glowing and youthful skin appearance.
Microneedling, Skin Needling & Dermapen Treatment in Sydney
Stop the presses! Have you heard the good news? Microneedling has hit Sydney. Contour Clinic are now one of the only clinics in Australia offering the Dermapen 4 treatment. Say goodbye to acne scarring, enlarged pores, stretch marks and more. If you haven’t heard of the skin microneedling sensation that is sweeping the nation, then we are here to give you the low down.
What is skin microneedling?
Collagen is the name of the game. It is the most common protein in our bodies, mainly because it does such a great job! You’ll find collagen in the skin, bones, muscles and even in our tendons. This clever stuff holds us together and provides cellular support. Combined with keratin, collagen gives our skin strength, keeps it waterproof and provides elasticity. As we age, we lose collagen, and this is the major cause of the appearance of wrinkles.
Why microneedling has taken Sydney by storm!
Microneedling is a way of tricking your body into producing more collagen, specifically in a particular area. The skin needling treatment works by causing tiny pin pricks, or micro-injuries, to send a message to the body to produce additional collagen in order to repair the newly damaged area. This increased collagen production rejuvenates the area providing a more youthful, healthy appearance and helping to reduce the appearance of lines, scarring and stretchmarks.
Why a Dermapen and not a roller?
Both the dermpapen and roller apply the same basic technique to achieve results. The major differences are:
- The Dermapen is more precise
- Your treatment can be customised
- There is less damage to the epidermis
- Treatments are faster and more comfortable
The traditional roller can be painful and produce much more visible bleeding due to the nature of the design. The roller flicks and tears the skin, causing additional damage and therefore increasing the recovery. The Dermapen, however, is precise and can target your problem areas without causing unnecessary damage. As one of the only clinics to offer the latest Dermapen 4 treatment, we are happy to be at the cutting edge of this effective cosmetic innovation.
What can I expect from dermapen skin needling treatment?
Like all of our treatments, whether its pigmentation treatment, dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle treatment, the first step is a bespoke consultation with one of our team of highly trained professionals. We will discuss your aims and objectives and outline a unique treatment plan to achieve your desired effect. For a Dermapen treatment procedure, we will first apply a topical anaesthetic (a cream which temporarily numbs the area) to your skin and clean the section to be worked on. Your consultant will then pass the Dermapen needles over the areas to be targeted. The entire procedure takes up to an hour, with an initial recommendation of 4 treatments over 6 weeks. Your results will be monitored, and any further therapies discussed. Dermapen treatment is safe, non-invasive and any mild skin irritation normally passes within the first two days.
