Dermapen or laser?
Dermapen is recognized for its effectiveness and long-lasting results. The ultra-fine needles are disposable and because of their size, enable us to access small areas, such as the nose, upper lip and around the eyes.
Laser is still an effective tool in cosmetic medicine but it has a much longer downtime. It may leave scars or permanently change your skin colour. It is cost prohibitive.
What are the Dermapen® treatments like?
- A device with ultra-fine needles that creates micro-perforations on the skin
- Some minor pain, so some clients prefer to use a topical anaesthetic
- Treatment takes approximately 20 minutes
- Some redness that only lasts for a few hours
- You can go straight back to work!
- We recommend between 3-6 treatments, depending on the area being treated
- Cost: $300-350
