What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a revolutionary micro-needling treatment, which aims to tighten, lift and rejeuvanate the skin.

The results will continue to be seen for unto 3 months after treatment.
Dermapen promotes scarless healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, laser resurfacing and chemical peels but without the side effects and downtime.

What does Dermapen treat?
Surgical, acne and trauma scars
How do i prepare for Dermapen?
All active skin care including retinols, anti ageing products, products containing AHAs BHAs etc must all be stopped 1-2 weeks before the treatment. Prep lotion can be bought direct from Nina to prepare the skin for treatment and to optimise results. Specialist skin care which is safe to use immediately after treatment when other products are not permitted, including serums, suncreams etc can also be purchased from Nina
How many treatments do i need?
A course of 6 is highly recommended but results can be seen from the initial treatment depending on your skin concern. Maintenance treatments can be then followed at your leisure. Using Dermapen in conjunction with peels is also highly recommended for the ultimate effectiveness and best results.
How often do i need Dermapen?
When having a course, a treatment should be done every 4-6 weeks.
Is Dermapen painful?
