FAQ's


How does it work?

Dermapen is a hand held device with an adjustable needle head. Needle depth (.25mm – 2.5mm) can be altered depending on the skin condition being treated.The needles cause a small wound to the skins surface, stimulating the body’s natural reaction to heal. The treated area benefits from the growth of new skin cells that in turn improve the skins texture and appearance.

Initial redness will occur where platelets in the blood respond to the ‘wound’

Tissue in the treated area will regenerate (heal)

A ‘fibrotic response’ occurs generating new collagen and tissue formation • No numbing is required • Regular work activities can be resumed after treatment • Dermapen is suitable for all skin types.

Does it hurt?

The sensation of Dermapen has been likened to a microdermabrasion, a little bit of discomfort – but responses vary from client to client. But our technicians use will regularly monitor your comfort throughout the procedure.

What makes Dermapen so unique?

Only Dermapen uses a specialised spring -loaded cartridge that is automated by an oscillating system. This delivers fast fractional and virtually painless treatment that is non-ablative.

Is the treatment safe?

How soon will I see results?

Results typically may be seen after just one Dermapen clinincal treatment, however cumulative treatments may be required to achieve the full desired result. The regenerating process will continue for up to 24 months post- treatment.

What is the downtime after treatment?

TESTIMONIALS

  • I think SILK have top quality machines that do the job you pay for. I've been to a cheaper place before with no results. I'm now doing touch ups once a year and I love it thanks SILK (Elizabeth)

  • I wanted to thank you personally for the service that I've received so far during my treatment at SILK. While I'm only about half way through my treatments, my results have been out of this world and for someone who has had thick "European" body hair up until now, and had to plan trips to the beach\swimming centre with my kids around my waxing schedule this has been a revelation.You have honestly given me my life back and I am so thrilled to refer you on to anyone and everyone I know. I can't quite figure out why I waited until this point in my life to do it.
