The Lotus Clinic offers Dermapen® skin needling as a non-surgical treatment option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, mild scarring, and many other conditions. Through this innovative skin rejuvenation technique, numerous ultra-fine puncture wounds are created over the treatment area, which is designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. As a result, new growth of collagen and elastin work to restore a healthier appearance to the skin. This treatment has been shown to tighten the skin and reduce signs of dermal imperfections. Concerns such as aging skin, large pores, acne scars and stretch marks can all be addressed using the Dermapen® micro-needling device.

Benefits of Dermapen®
Minimally invasive Dermapen® treatment can be performed on all skin colors and types, as well as on any area of the body. It can be a good alternative for patients who are looking for non-surgical skin rejuvenation, especially on sensitive areas with thin skin, such as the neck and chest.
Dermapen® is known to be less painful than past needling techniques. The Dermapen® needles are designed to work in a vertical motion, rather than the curved method of other needling treatments. This creates more precise fine puncture wounds and minimizes damage done to the epidermis. As a result, patients experience less discomfort during the procedure and a shorter healing time. Additionally, the treatment can be customized to the patient’s specific skin problems since the needle depth can be adjusted.
Finally, Dermapen® is a convenient way to address skin issues. It is generally a quick treatment, taking less than an hour to complete. Due to the nature of the needling process, patient recovery time is typically minimal, often taking only about three days for your skin to return back to normal. Patients also appreciate the fact that Dermapen® is a cost effective way to enhance the look of their skin compared to more invasive and comprehensive procedures.
The Dermapen® Procedure
The Dermapen® procedure is a relatively simple process. The sterilized needle pen will be placed over the designated areas, and, to alleviate any discomfort with the needles, a numbing cream and a cooler can be applied to the skin beforehand. The needling device will create several tiny needle wounds that signal the body to produce more collagen and elastin. Overall, the procedures takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete, but it ultimately depends on the extent of the treatment area.
While one treatment can provide noticeable results for skin rejuvenation, a regimen of three to four visits is often recommended for the best results. However, if you are undergoing the Dermapen® procedure to treat scars, five or more treatments may be necessary. Immediately following the procedure, your skin will appear red and will be somewhat sensitive. These effects should dissipate within the next 24 hours, when your skin should be fully healed. In less than three days, there will be little to no evidence that any treatment was even done.
You should start to see improvement in the treated area starting at six to eight weeks as the collagen starts to rebuild. The results should become even more apparent over the course of the next year. Dermapen® is designed to help the skin become smoother and firmer as the growth of collagen and elastin continue to improve.
