Microneedling Belfast

Microneedling is the process of inserting tiny microneedles at various depths over the surface of the skin. The Dermapen is the most sophisticated system available for microneedling.

Compared to older, traditional microneedling modalities such as Dermaroller, the Dermapen causes significantly less trauma at the skin's epidermis resulting in improved patient comfort, less downtime and minimal aftercare requirements. The Dermapen also allows treatment around the eyes, nose and upper lip.

The pen is glided over the skin and microscopic channels are lightly stamped into the skins matrix stimulating a wound healing response. Natural growth factors are released to stimulate reformation and deposition of fresh, restructuring collagen, rejuvenating the skin.

Microneedling Belfast

Dermapen can be used for:

  • General rejuvenation

  • Sun damage

  • Ageing/Rhytides (wrinkles)

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Rosacea

  • Enlarged pores

  • Scarring

  • Alopecia

  • Hair regeneration

  • Striae (stretch marks)

Dermapen can be effectively combined with treatments such as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma).

Patient reviews

Having previously had lip fillers done somewhere else I was left with uneven bumpy lips and I hated them! I went on Thursday to get them dissolved and then another half ml put in the following week, I have never been sooo happy with my lips! The shape of them is amazing I have the nicest Cupid bow and they are perfectly symmetrical and they are everything I could have asked for! Thank you so much Chris.

Cannot recommend this clinic enough. Dr Chris and Dr Judith are amazing at what they do. They will take the time to discuss your concerns and will be honest about what they can, and will, do. Make an appointment; you will thank yourself later.

Had a lovely microneedling session with Dr. Jude last week, who was so friendly and generous with her skincare knowledge! I’m excited to come back for more treatments. I’ve been twice (once for consult once for treatment) and have never felt like I’m being sold something I don’t need, which has been my experience in so many other places.

Does a Dermapen treatment hurt?

Some topical aesthetic cream is applied to numb the face before treatment.

The skin may appear red and irritated for a few days after treatment.

How quickly are the results visible?

Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following the procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.

Is Dermapen™ safe?

Allergic reactions and side-effects are extremely rare/unheard of. The procedure is minimally invasive, meaning there is virtually no downtime.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling?

Side effects experienced with Dermapen usually subside within 48 hours. These include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.

My face has a few slightly raised red and itchy lesions today, is that normal and something the client may experience?

Yes, absolutely normal. Some patients may experience red/dry skin or small pimples which resolve in a few days post procedure.

Can I apply make-up to hide the redness after microneedling treatment?

It is advisable to avoid applying make up immediately after treatment. You may apply make up as usual the day following treatment.

What can be expected after Dermapen treatment?

Day 1: Erythema and redness, severity of which will depend upon the aggressiveness of the performed treatment.

Day 2: Red or pink hue similar to moderate sunburn may persist. There may be some noticeable swelling on the second day.

Day 3: Skin may still retain a pink hue, or return to normal colour. Swelling subsides.

Can you have the treatment in conjunction with IPL hair and/or rejuvenation settings and what should be the time gap?

This is not advisable.

What if they have had electrolysis? Is this still okay to use the Dermapen?

Yes, although the skin should be fully healed before Dermapen treatment.

Should Botox users wait 6 weeks before having botox treatment?

Botox is in the muscle in 15 minutes so Dermapen is safe after this, however most patients choose to wait a few days after botox for Dermapen treatment.
