Skin Needling


Skin Needling, or Dermapen, is a natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars and pigmentation. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face, neck, decolletage and hands. The treatments have excellent results for acne scarring. It is a safe procedure and an effective method in piercing the skin. Dermapen aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin, with a visible appearance of the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigmentation. A variety of creams or gels will be used, most suitable for your skin and treatment, to hydrate the skin and reduce signs of fine lines. You can purchase these after your treatment for maintenance. The treatment encourages natural production of collagen and elastin, tightening and plumping the skin.
