Dermapen – acne scars & skin rejuvenation
Dermapen uses advanced vertical skin needling technology
Dermapen uses multiple needs that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. When moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin stimulates repair and faster resurfacing results.
Skin Needling Brisbane & Gold Coast
Advanced vertical skin needling
The advanced vertical skin needling of the Dermapen promotes scar-less healing and deposition of normal collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime. It is also more effective than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Why Dermapen is better
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the Dermapen causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal (skin) damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, making it a safer more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.
Dermapen is recommended to treat:
- Aged sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Smokers lines around the lips
- Skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
- Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
- And much, much more

Frequently Asked Questions
At Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast we’ve been using the Dermapen successfully for many, many years. Here are some of the questions our patients have asked us prior to undergoing treatment:
Should I prepare my skin before having a Dermapen treatment?
For optimal results we recommend a period of effective active treatment creams such as vitamin A, C or Resveratrol to allow the skin’s strength to build-up (especially for thin or delicate skin areas). Continue to use these recommended solutions after the treatment for a period of 6 weeks.
How long should it take before I see results?
Typically, you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 2-4 weeks apart). Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.
Is the treatment painful?
For minimum needle depths Dermapen treatments are painless. For treatments over 1mm deep, a topical anaesthesia cream is applied 15-40 minutes before treatment and will render the treatments completely pain-free.
Is there any downtime after treatments?
Generally, there is none. However you may experience facial redness 12-48 hours after treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
How soon after filler injections can I have a Dermapen treatment?
It’s recommended to leave at least 4 days after filler injections so that any post treatment bruising for the fillers can settle. Or have your Dermapen treatment 1-2 days before having fillers injected.
