Dermapen/Skin Needling What the heck....?

How does it work?

Dermapen 3™ systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to that achieved by fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. Practitioners find Dermapen™ Treatments to be more effective and more beneficial than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels. When compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3™ causes less epidermal (skin) damage, reducing levels of pain and discomfort. As a result Dermapen 3™ is a safer, more comfortable, and more effective micro-needling treatment  Dermapen 3™’s single use cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depth allows for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3™ is so advanced, it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips and on the nose.


What is skin needling good for?

Dermapen is fabulous for :

Lifting and tightening the skin

Reducing the appearance of scarring including ACNE, BURNS and SURGICAL SCARS

Minimizing fines lines and wrinkles and pore size.

Improving the appearance of stretch marks

Fading skin discolouration / pigmentation

Softening smokers lines around the lips

Dermapen is not only designed for the face but can be performed on any part of the body.


Does Skin Needling Hurt?

This is a question we often get asked by our clients. Every Person's pain is different, but more often that not, clients are pleasantly surprised to find the treatment doesn't hurt as much as expected.

The actual needling, will usually take around 4-7 minutes. You will feel a level of discomfort as the micromeddles penetrate your skin and you may find it hurts a little more across boney areas like your forehead and nose.


Will my skin be numbed?

We do avoid a numbing agent during your treatment at Envy . This enables us to achieve better results and avoids excess trauma to the skin and this also reduces recovery time.

We can promise you, the small amount of discomfort is worth the incredible results!

Our skin needling treatment includes a pre cleanse and exfoliate and is followed by a relaxing and cooling mask to leave your skin glowing.


The results from micro-needling skin remodelling can go on for months after each Dermapen treatment. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks later. Typically you will see results after your first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments when spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart
How much does it cost?
At Envy we charge $299 for a full face Dermapen treatment this includes a follow up treatment 1 week later.
We have Afterpay available in the salon where you pay your treatments/products off over 4 fortnightly payments or we also offer Beauty pay which is like afterpay with no fees no credit checks and you can pay off in longer terms.
