Microneedling treatment has been used for skin rejuvenation for a long time. Recently, a new form of microneedling, Dermapen Dubai Treatment is introduced in the aesthetic industry. It is an advanced microneedling technique and a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. Although its fundamental principle is similar to an ordinary microneedling treatment, it delivers better results. The adjustable needle penetrates the skin up to a controlled depth.
Aim of the Treatment
The primary goal of the Dermapen® treatment is skin rejuvenation. It rejuvenates the aging skin by tightening and lifting it to reduce sagginess and wrinkles. Similarly, Dermapen® is also used to treat different skin conditions like scarring, stretch marks, age spots, sun damage, and skin pigmentation.
Technique We Use
The Dermapen treatment in Dubai uses cutting-edge technology, known as Microneedling, during the procedure. In fact, it is the evolution of traditional microneedling treatment, which originated in France in the early 1950s. In recent years, Dermapen® has evolved to become less invasive and more effective. Nowadays, Vitamin Infusion with Dermapen is also possible.
How does it work?
Dermapen® is a micro-needling device that uses needle tips to address several skin concerns. The device consists of 11 disposable ultra-fine sterile stainless steel needles. The needles are injected into the facial skin to create tiny punctures that cause micro-injuries. The procedure works similar to derma rolling.
Since the needles are injected into the top layer of the skin, the pain involved in the treatment is minimal and often negligible. However, people sensitive to pain can be treated with a numbing cream to minimize the sensations.
The procedure involves a vibrating stamp-like motion of a Dermapen on the affected skin. The highly-controlled nature of Dermapen makes it a procedure to be performed on all six Fitzpatrick skin types.
As we age, collagen and elastin production decreases, which leads to several skin problems. The wounds caused by Dermapen treatment stimulate collagen and elastin production which tightens the skin and rejuvenates it for younger looks.
Who is the ideal candidate?
The following skin conditions make anyone an ideal candidate for Dermapen Dubai Treatment:
- Acne Scars

For the best Dermapen treatment in Dubai, candidates must follow some pre-procedural guidelines. Usually, the practitioner provides a set of instructions. However, some general pre-treatment instructions are as follows:
- Only use dermatologist-recommended topical ointments.
- Stop using skin care products with Retin-A as an active ingredient.
- Avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, beta-blockers, cod liver oil, vitamin E, etc., at least two weeks before the procedure.
- Sun exposure is harmful, so try to avoid it. If you need to go out, wear sunblock with SPF 40 or more.
- Do not wear makeup when coming for the procedure.
Dermapen Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling with Dermapen is performed in four steps as mentioned below:
In the first step, the dirt, dust, and dead cells are removed from a treatment area. This helps in the effective penetration of the Derma pen needle during the treatment.
In this step, micro-needling on the treated area takes place. The needles of the Dermapen are injected into the dermis and epidermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production. As the skin is penetrated, it plumps and reduces the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
Once the treatment is completed, a cooling mask is applied to the treatment area to prevent any sort of inflammation.
The last step of the treatment is skin moisturizing in which a solution is applied to keep your skin hydrated. The dermatologist may also recommend you keep the skin hydrated for effective results of treatment.
Below are some essential post-procedure care tips to help during the recovery phase of Dermapen Treatment in Dubai:
- Avoid washing the face for about 4 to 5 hours after the procedure.
- Wear sunscreen regularly, especially when going out in the sun.
- Use a mild cleanser to thoroughly wash the face.
- Avoid applying products that may irritate your skin, especially those containing Retin-A and hydroxyl acids.
- Do not apply makeup or over-the-counter skincare products to the treatment area for two days.
Before and After Results
The results of this treatment are remarkable. Moreover, candidates can see a significant change in the skin’s surface within a week after Dermapen® treatment in Dubai. Furthermore, results are long-lasting and do not require constant maintenance.
Effective Treatments with Dermapen Microneedling
There are two different types of treatments that can be combined with Dermapen micro-needling for better results. These two treatments include:
Dermapen micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
In this treatment, platelet-rich plasma which is extracted from the patient’s own blood is either topically applied to the treatment area or injected into the body. The derma pen micro-needling opens channels for the PRP so that the solution can penetrate into deeper layers of skin.
The combination of both these treatments has proven to improve skin tone and texture and rejuvenate it.
Dermapen Microneedling with Mesotherapy
Dermapen micro-needling with mesotherapy is also called Mesofacial. The treatment involves the creation of micropunctures through Dermapen and Mesotherapy serum is infused into these punctures. The serum contains antioxidants that penetrate the skin.
The derma pen mesotherapy can treat skin pigmentation, and promotes skin rejuvenation, and tightening along with hydrating the skin.
