Mesotherapy – Dermapen™

Mesotherapy is the introduction of a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, co-enzymes and amino acids just beneath the epidermis. Each ingredient has a specific action within the cells of the treatment area and they work to improve the signs of ageing.

 

How does it work?

The Dermapen™ uses micro-needling technology and has a phenomenal effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Active ingredients from the products used are delivered to the deeper layers of the skin via the micro-channels. The small footprint of the device makes it ideal for treating hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, nose and mouth. The Dermapen™ is also used to help improve the appearance of scarring and pigmentation.

This mechanism of injury doesn’t tear the skin like dermal rollers, which makes the Dermapen™ less traumatic to the skin. The treatment is performed by moving the pen over the skin, creating several micro-channels. Our aestheticians uses a topical anaesthetic before the treatment to numb the face thus minimizing the discomfort.

Which areas can be treated?

  • Full face
  • Neck
  • Décolletage
  • Hands
  • Localised areas on the body

How many sessions are recommended?

We recommend 1 treatment once a month for 4 months, with a maintenance treatment every 6+ months.

 

Is there any downtime?

Depending on the depth of the treatment the downtime can vary from no downtime to 3-5 days downtime. Our clients can expect some redness and swelling especially if their skin is sensitive or if we perform a very aggressive treatment. This can last anything from 2-5 days, once again depending on the depth of the treatment.
