Introducing Dermapen™ 4 Gold microneedling at Lovely By skin institute

There’s an advertising saying along the lines of “the product is mightier than the pen” which basically means quality products sell themselves. At Lovely by skin institute we proudly offer one of the world’s leading micro needling treatment Dermapen Gold.

Let’s dive a little into the origins of needling!

Needling for therapeutic benefits may be traced back as far as the Shang Dynasty (1600-1100BCE) with the traditional Chinese medicine (TMC) practice of acupuncture. Unlike cosmetic needling where we stimulate a wound healing response, acupuncture works by the insertion of needles to specific body points to rebalance the qi or (energy) through meridian channels. Fast forward to 1996 where the first skin needling roller was created and paved the way for Dermapen4 Gold in 2010 to be the standard by which all others will be judged.

Okay, now we have given you a little history lesson, what on earth is Dermapen and why is it one of the world’s leading treatments you might ask?

Dermapen Gold treatments treat acne, enlarged pores, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, ageing, diffused redness, rosacea, scarring and stretch marks. The treatment is suitable for all skin colours and ethnicities, and is an effective solution to the skin concerns mentioned above.

How does Dermapen work?

The treatment begins with a mini facial to cleanse the skin, after which your therapist will glide the Dermapen4 pen-shaped device over the face in a cross-hatch pattern. This delivers microscopic punctures to the top, superficial layers of the skin (only a few millimetres deep) using very tiny needles.

The treatment stimulates an inflammatory natural wound healing response in the skin which promotes renewal, repair, and rejuvenation and natural growth factors are released to stimulate fresh restructuring of collagen. To help with this process, active solutions containing potent vitamins, antioxidants, collagen, hyaluronic acid (a substance made naturally in our body that boosts hydration), plus other nourishing ingredients are applied and penetrate the deeper layers of the skin through these tiny channels, maximising the skin’s benefits, resulting in fresh, new collagen and elastin, and a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion. Yes please!

What sort of results will I see?

Your skin will be glowing and a little plump and pink right after your treatment, but since your body needs to build the fresh new collagen, the real outcome will come a couple of months later. Dermapen treatments work to create a fresher and radiant complexion, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage, enlarged pores and acne scarring.

Another thing to consider is that not all microneedling treatments are created equal, and some pens and techniques yield lesser results. Dermapen is the original and most trusted microneedling brand, designed in Australia with an improved version every few years, leading us to the latest model, the Dermapen4. This device is safer than ever, with an anti-contamination mechanism and an increased amount of smaller, faster-moving needles than other devices, meaning less pain and more gain.

Healthy, fresh, glowing and radiant skin are all on the menu with a Dermapen Gold treatment, for best results we recommend 3-6 treatments 2-8 weeks apart with the recommended at-home skincare for maximum results and the ultimate skin rejuvenation.

Lovely by skin institute is a Dermapen Gold Authorised Treatment Provider, meaning we use only the latest Dermapen4 device, the recommended skin infusion products from Dp Dermaceuticals and follow all safety and training protocols.
