What is Dermapen / Microneedling?
Dermal needling involves piercing the skin with superficial ultra-thin needles to stimulate 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 to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin stimulates repair and enhances the natural healing process that is initiated by the micro-trauma of the needles. Natural growth factors are produced by the skin, resulting in increased production of collagen and elastin, which continues for several months, such that the results improve as time goes by.
Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face. The best results from Microneedling are seen after a course of treatment.

What is the Down Time Following Equinox Dermapen Treatment?
Following your Dermapen treatment, you can expect some redness and slight swelling around the areas that have been treated. Your skin may feel warm to touch, like a mild sunburn sensation. This should last no longer than a day or two.
At Equinox we minimise the down time following Dermapen treatment by utilising cutting edge technology of LED therapy and high-quality products (Aspect Dr. Redless, Hyaluronic Serum and Societe Rejuvenating Gel Mask).
Post Treatment Care
- Avoid sun exposure, and once the skin has healed, don’t forget broad spectrum sunscreen (Aspect Dr. Hydro-Shield Sunscreen)
- Avoid using makeup after the treatment
- Use a gentle cleanser (Aspect Dr. Mild Cleanser)
- Don’t use skin products containing ‘active ingredients.
- Apply Aspect Dr. Redless, Hyaluronic Serum, and non-irritant forms of Vitamins B and C.
