We only use Dermapen 4, which is the latest leading technology in skin needling. The Dermapen 4 Improves the skins texture, aiding in repair while building collagen
The key to achieving a refreshed and revitalised appearance for skin is generating fresh collagen and elastin. Collagen gives the skin its strength, while elastin provides the skin with its youthfulness and ability to bounce back into shape. Production of these two proteins typically slows in a person’s thirties, resulting in the skin’s appearance lacking volume and vitality.
At Mole Check Clinic, we apply numbing cream before each treatment to minimise patient discomfort ? something few other clinics do.
Mole Check Clinic offers non-surgical micro needling skin rejuvenation and derma pen therapy to address a range of skin concerns, including ageing. Make an appointment at our St Kilda Rd clinic in Melbourne today.
All You Need to Know About Derma Pen Therapy
Also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling and micro needling skin rejuvenation, derma pen treatment uses a stainless titanium derma roller (most commonly the Dermapen 4 device) to make thousands of microscopic punctures in the areas of the skin that are being targeted for treatment. The action of the needles creating the punctures as it’s rolled over the skin promotes the generation of new collagen, which aides significantly in the repair or filling in of wrinkles, mild acne scars and stretch marks. Each person responds differently to derma pen skin needling; some may experience a significant reduction in the physical signs of scarring, while others may see their scars or wrinkles disappear completely.
What is Dermapen 4?
While there are many skin needling devices on the market, Mole Check clinic uses the Dermapen 4. The device comes with features including:
Dual Power Operation – The added feature of the Advanced Lithium Turbo-cut battery enables the device to perform at the same level as that of a mains powered device.
Safety mechanisms ? The device includes an anti-contamination mechanism with its own inbuilt fluid guard, designed to prevent drag or any backflow of fluids.
Scar treatment settings – Arguably the only skin needling device that boasts a dedicated scar treatment setting.
More effective results – The Dermapen 4 takes the features and abilities of the high quality Dermapen 3 to the next level, with the capacity to create 47.69% more holes than its predecessor and 104% more micro channels than other derma pen skin needling devices. The Dermapen 4 is capable of generating up to 1920 holes per second.
Less pain ? The Dermapen 4 allows for faster oscillation, which reduces pain and improves patient comfort.
