MDERMA FRACTIONAL DERMAL-NEEDLING
A superior, advanced, regenerative needling treatment for your skin
This procedure is also known as Skin Needling or Dermapen. Dermal Needling is a procedure that utilises a tiny sterile microneedling head piece (non laser) that creates a controlled trauma, targeting the dermal layer of the skin to restore damaged collagen and stimulate new collagen. Dermal Needling is an accumulative result with the stimulation of new collagen continuing over 6 months up to 2 years after your initial course. This is suitable for fine lines and wrinkles, pore refinement, acne scars, post-surgical scars and stretch marks. Topical numbing agent may be applied 30 minutes prior to the treatment.
MDerma™ is the leader in patient safety, comfort and treatment results. Dermal needling involves using tiny needles to create microscopic injuries in the top layer of the skin, which stimulates the body’s natural healing process resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. Tiny channels in the skin are created and the body responds with a physiological process that improves the colour, texture and consistency of the skin with the added benefit of increasing the absorption of skin care products.
MDerma™ advanced vertical skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic stamping function. The disposable tip cartridge made up of 12 micro-needles removes the risk of cross-contamination and the adjustable depth allows treatment that is adaptable to individual needs.
MDerma™ is so advanced, it is appropriate and safe to use in sensitive and previously inaccessible areas such as the upper and lower eyes, lips and nose. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, MDerma™ is safe on any skin type, has short treatment times and virtually no downtime.
The MDerma™ improves and revitalises damaged skin. The body naturally responds to the needling treatment by going into wound healing and as a result increases production of normal woven collagen. This process is called Percutaneous Therapy Induction of Collagen.
Visible results from the first application can include:
- Tightens, lifts and rejuvenates the skin
- Reduces scars, including surgical scars and acne scars
- Reduces acne scaring
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduces stretch marks
- Decreases pore size
- Aids in the regeneration of skin by inducing capillary exfoliation
This powerful treatment works to quickly rejuvenate ageing and sun damaged skin - by restoring your skin’s natural firmness and tightness, improving skin texture and reducing pore size, lightening pigmentation marks and brightening skin tone and reducing fine lines, folds and wrinkles. Skin needling uses proven skin rejuvenation principles to provide a quick, effective treatment for all skin types.
This powerful treatment works to rejuvenate the skin by stimulating your skin's natural wound healing response and is very effective in minimising scars including surgical and burn scars by diminishing scar collagen and replacing it with normal collagen.
Skin Needling is highly recommended as the best treatment for acne scar removal. We offer a variety of options that are specifically designed to target particular depths of scarring. Treatments encourage the generation and distribution of new collagen that will progressively build healthy, firmer skin around the affected areas. This significantly reduces the depth and appearance of acne scarring and provides a far smoother and more even skin surface.
Skin needling is one of the most effective available treatments for stretch marks. Stretch marks are a scar that develops in the deeper layers of the dermis and when there is stress, stretching and strain in the area the collagen in the skin breaks down causing marks on the surface. Skin Needling penetrates the underlying layers of the skin where these stretch marks develop and triggers the production and distribution of new collagen in the treatment area, progressively filling in the stretch mark, making it less noticeable and, in some cases, disappear altogether.

DERMAL NEEDLING FAQ
Depending on your skin condition, we recommend between 3-5 treatments. When treating more severe skin conditions such as stretch marks and major scarring you may require between 6 to 10 treatments.
Prior to a skin needling treatment, it is recommended that you use an SPF30+ or greater for at least 1 month and the use of cosmeceutical skin care is advised to accelerate results.
After a skin needling treatment, you must ensure that you avoid any excessive heat to the area such as hot showers, saunas, exercise, sun exposure etc. The application of a soothing agent post treatment is essential and you must also avoid the use of active cosmeceutical skin care for a few days post treatment.
After a skin needling treatment it is normal to experience mild to moderate redness, slight swelling, minor flaking, itchiness, mild grazing and bruising. The more dramatic side effects can last anywhere from 1 to 7 days with improvements each day.
This depends on the treatment intensity. As the needles are very tiny the pain is most likely to be minimal. 15 – 30 minutes prior to treatment a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the area. This will minimise any discomfort during the treatment.
Skin needling is not only effective at treating certain skin conditions on the face, but also very effective in the treatment of stretch marks and scarring on any part of the body. Skin needling is also safe to perform on areas close to the eyes, such as when treating crows feet and frown lines.
