Whats is Dermapen-4?

The Dermapen-4 delivers the ultimate in advanced and innovative micro-needling. It is designed to create a safe healing response within the body to ignite natural collagen and elastin production within the skin. The Dermapen-4 is the only micro-needling device with a dedicated scar setting for revision of deep, atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, striae and post-acne scars.

Dermapen treatments can be effective for many conditions including acne, pigmentation, scarring, stretch marks, rosacea, telangiectasia, seborrheic dermatitis, aesthetic gynaecology, alopecia and more. It is safe, effective and suitable for most skin types


An anaesthetic will be applied 30 minutes before the treatment to minimise discomfort. The Dermapen penetrates the top layer of skin with micro-needles to create pin-point injuries in the deeper layers. This then triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, which stimulates new collagen and elastin formulation.

What part of the body?

Can be used to treat the face, neck and decolletage.
