How does it work?
Microneedling uses the skin’s natural healing response to light trauma to create new cell growth and total skin rejuvenation, with minimal downtime required. Dermapen is the original and most trusted automated skin-needling device, and the Dermapen4 uses the most advanced technology in microneedling, with less pain and more precision and safety than similar devices.
Dermapen4 glides over the skin creating millions of fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other micro-needling devices. These channels can carry up to 80% more nutrients deeper into the skin. In turn, our body's natural response triggers a natural process of repair.
The result is an increase in overall skin renewal anywhere on the body, from hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, nose or larger areas of neck and décolleté, stomach and legs for stretch mark treatments.
As a Gold Authorised Treatment provider, About Face follows the Dermapen recommend treatment protocol exactly. Each treatment includes the use of the Dermaceuticals Hyla Active 3D Sculptured Mask within the treatment price - not all treatment providers do this! It's the About Face difference!

Along with other combination therapies, Dermapen can produce amazing results.

Who does it suit?
Dermapen treats a variety of skin concerns so is suitable for all ages, skin types and ethnicities.
Anti-aging - Dermapen4 treatments are firstly designed to create a safe healing response within the body. This leads to igniting natural collagen and elastin production from within the skin, without harsh side effects and downtime. Consequently, this results in repairing the surface layers to result in healthier skin, looking brighter, tighter, more even toned, refined pores and reduced wrinkles.
Acne - Acne can affect all skin types and all ages, and may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, health, stress and environmental factors. Hormones can stimulate excess sebum (or oil) production, excess oil, dry skin and debris combined can become trapped in the pore. If the pore becomes blocked the acne bacteria can cause inflammation and can make the skin more susceptible to other bacteria. Micro- needling regenerates the affected area by stimulating the production and distribution of collagen. You will see an overall improvement in the appearance of problematic skin breakouts, black/whiteheads, acne reduced, and scarring minimised.
Scarring - Dermapen4 is the only micro-needling device with a dedicated scar setting and protocols for revision of deep, atrophic scars; including surgical, burn contracture, striae and post-acne scars.
Pigmentation - Unlike some Laser treatments, Dermapen4 removes the risk of heat injury and hypopigmentation risks, whilst promoting optimised cell function. Therefore, this makes it a suitable procedure for any skin type and ethnicities affected by melasma (pigmentation) and with a predisposition to hyperpigmentation. Dermapen4 treatments have also been found to be effective on Hypopigmentation Vitiligo treatments, working to reverse the production of hyperpigmentation and melasma.
Dermapen4 treatments can be effective for a multitude of conditions including Rosacea, telangiectasia, seborrhoeic dermatitis and much more.
How does it feel? What happens during treatment?
Unlike traditional dermal rolling techniques, Dermapen4 is the most comfortable micro-needling treatment available, thanks to advanced technology and design. With Dermapen4 there is no need for any topical anesthetic, just lay back and enjoy the stunning results.
The actual needling treatment is very quick, around 10-15mins. We begin by cleansing your skin, followed by the needling treatment. Post needling, we apply an ultra-soothing, 3D sculpted mask fo+r hydration and healing, finishing with a bespoke cocktail of serums to help treat your main concern and SPF if needed.
How many treatments do I need and how often?
We personalise the number of treatments you need based on your concerns and skincare desires. An effective treatment plan usually includes three to six treatments of Dermapen, normally 3-4 weeks apart.
