One of the latest and greatest advancements in Medical Skin Needling, also known as C.I.T. – Collagen Induction Therapy. It is used primarily as a treatment for acne and scars, stretch marks, fine lines & wrinkles and pore minimization.
For anti-aging purposes, it has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. The Micro-Needles painlessly puncture the skin down to the dermis, stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts which lay down collagen – increasing the skins elasticity, and in turn tightening, lifting & rejuvenating the skin.
Dermapen is recommended to treat:
- Aged Sagging Skin
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Smokers Lines around lips
- Skin Tightening & Rejuvenation
- Large Pores
- Stretch Marks

Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
This micro injury also allows temporary fine channels to be created in the skin. These channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients for delivery deep within the fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the deeper layers of the skin. This increased and even absorption of the active ingredients used during treatment into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing and faster healing results.
After treatment, the thousands of little microscopic needle points in your skin close within the hour. Your skin then initiates a repair and stimulation process that goes on over many weeks, resulting in improved skin texture and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. The Dermapen’s impressive results are backed up by many clinical studies.
