What is Dermapen

Dermapen technology, Advanced Vertical Oscillating Needling (AOVN™) uses multiple needles that penetrate the skin with an automatic vibration function. When they are moved on the surface of the skin, they stimulate natural collagen production, while creating fine channels in the skin. These channels can distribute up to 80% more of the nutrients applied to the skin, allowing them to be delivered to the fibroblasts to nourish the cells in the dermis and basal layer. This accelerated absorption of active skin ingredients stimulates repair and brings fast resurfacing results.

Dermapen treatment induces healing without scarring and restoration of collagen matrix, similar to fractional laser treatment, but without side effects and recovery period. It is also more effective than most microderm abrasion and chemical peeling treatments.

Unlike traditional dermaroles, Dermapen causes less trauma and has minimal impact on the epidermis, reducing pain and discomfort, resulting in a safer and more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate the risk of contamination, while the adjustable depth allows to realize a personalized treatment according to needs.

Dermapen is so advanced that it can be used in delicate and difficult to reach areas such as the contour of the eyes, lips and nose.

At the minimum depths of the Dermapen, the treatment is painless. At depths greater than 0.5 mm, an anesthetic cream will be applied 15-20 minutes before treatment to minimize the discomfort felt.

Dermapen is recommended in treating
  • Loose/Aged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Expression lines around the lips
  • Stretching and rejuvenation of the skin
  • Large pores
  • Stretch Marks
  • Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
  • Alopecia

It has the effect of sculpting the chin and neck, controls the redness/acne/rosacea, protects the DNA of the skin (protects the telomeres, responsible for the life of the cells).

Dermapen treatment is performed:

– every 4 weeks (4-6 treatments) for rejuvenation

– 6 weeks (6 treatments) for acne scars

– 4-6 weeks (4-8 treatments) for stretch marks.


Before the actual procedure, we will evaluate the skin and the area to be treated to recommend an appropriate treatment plan.


The procedure can take between 30 and 60 minutes.

In general, no time is needed for post-treatment recovery, but redness of the face 12-48 hours after treatment can be observed.  The patient can return immediately to normal activities.

After the procedure

The results of this treatment are observed immediately after the first session. After 4 to 6 treatments, the results will be more pronounced and lasting. The skin will continue to improve its appearance within 6-12 months after the completion of treatments if the recommended complementary care products will be used.


For best results, it is important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from aggressive environmental factors. We recommend daily use of a day and night cream for 90 days. If exposed to the sun, always use sunscreen. You are unlikely to have side effects after treatment. However, if redness or skin reactions occur, we recommend using a skin foundation that allows the skin to breathe. At the same time, a protective factor coating product will also provide skin protection.
