Microneedling is not as same as the derma roller. Microneedling pen is an automated oscillating device with needles at the tip that penetrates vertically as it glides over your skin. Dermaroller reuses the same needles every time, while microneedling with Dermapen uses sterile, single-use disposable needles to avoid cross-contamination Unlike rollers that move horizontally across the skin, dermapen move vertically to minimize unnecessary trauma on the epidermis, so you can expect quicker healing and better results.
Microneedling is a safe treatment to rejuvenate the skin and treat scars as long as it is done by professionals. At Healthy Look Aesthetic, microneedling is performed by Certified Aesthetic & Anti Aging Doctor
You can notice the difference after the first session once the downtime subsides. However, we recommend courses in 3-6 sessions to see significant changes. This also depends on your skin’s concern. Skin improvement will continue over the next 6 to 12 months especially when combined with the appropriate home care treatment
Scar : 6 treatments 6 weeks apart
Rejuvenation : 4 treatments 4 weeks apart
Hair growth : 4-6 treatments 4 weeks apart
Please note that this is only a general guideline as every individual has different concerns and skin conditions. We provide personalized consultation prior to the treatment to tailor a specific plan to target your needs.
Dermapen is much more painless compared to other microneedling treatments. For treatment below 1 mm (for rejuvenation), most patients claim it is pain-free. If your concern is for the scar & stretch mark, you may experience mild discomfort as we need to go deeper to release the fibrous tissue (more than 1 mm). The topical anesthetic cream will be applied around 30 minutes to make sure you’re comfortable during the procedure
You will experience mild redness for 12-48 following the rejuvenation and pigmentation concern. For the scars & stretch marks, the redness will be longer as the depth is deeper to release the fibrous tissue. At Healthy Look Aesthetic Center Ubud, we care much about the aftercare. All dermapen treatment with us comes with a complimentary soothing peptide mask & LED treatment to accelerate the healing process. A thin camouflage can be applied to conceal the redness after 24 hours. Some patients also experience dryness & peeling for a few days during the healing process before revealing smooth skin.
