Dermatological issues, especially for the face, are some of the skin concerns that are unpleased for everybody. We typically strive to look our best, and there is no age limit to that. It is said that a person’s face is the most visible part of the body and thanks to modern medicine, one can always look their natural best. There are common skin problems that most people battle at some point in their life such as:
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet
- Acne scars
- Dark circles and bags under the eyes
For someone facing any of the above issues, then a Dermapen microneedling skin treatment may be one of the best options for a clear and youthful-looking skin. This is because it not only gets rid of the problem at hand but also rejuvenates the skin leaving a glowing, healthy and more toned skin.
Dermapen Microneedling Technique Options
A dermapen skin treatment, also called Dermapen microneedling in Dubai, is performed with a motorized skin treatment instrument that uses tiny needle tips to create small wounds on the skin. The procedure is virtually painless and safe so there is no need to worry. As soon as the treatment is administered, the body responds by regenerating new collagen. The skin undergoes quick and dramatic change as it naturally heals itself in 45 days.
The needle penetration level usually depends on the results that the patient is looking for. Light penetration opens up the skin long enough for specific treatment serums to be effectively absorbed. Mid penetration helps with the skin texture and tone. Deep skin issues like acne scars and stretch marks require a deeper penetration level.

The Dermapen Microneedling Process
a) The Consultation
The first step of having a Dermapen microneedling skin treatment in Dubai is to have a detailed consultation and examination in the clinic with our board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, to determine a tailor-made plan for each candidate.
b) The Treatment
The second step is to schedule the Dermapen microneedling skin treatment with the highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon or dermatologist who is an expert in Dermapen microneedling and skin treatment procedures. The treatment requires 30 minutes to one hour depending on the severity of the condition.
Prior to any procedure at the clinic, each patient is screened to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the treatment.
During the procedure, a numbing agent is applied to the skin if necessary then the ultra-fine needles are slowly passed over the skin causing micro injuries. The pain level is tolerable because the needles cause the micro-injuries on the top layers of the skin and the numbing agent significantly reduces any discomfort. The small wounds created automatically signal the body to start the healing process, and the generation of collagen begins. This leads to the formation of a new layer of skin which is firmer and thicker than before.
The expert plastic surgeon or dermatologist accompanies the patient throughout the entire treatment process and scheduled follow-up sessions.
c) The Recovery
Immediately after the treatment, the skin might feel sensitive to the touch, and there might be some redness, but this should go away after 24 hours. Avoiding the sun during the healing period is crucial so a high spectrum sunscreen is highly recommended. For this treatment, there are typically no serious side effects, and the recovery is quick.
Although a Dermapen microneedling skin treatment is straightforward, it is important that the right level of intervention or treatment is determined by a qualified and expert plastic surgeon or dermatologist. A potential candidate has to fit into certain criteria to be eligible for the procedure and should have:
- Skin concerns that can be treated with Dermapen microneedling.
- Be ready and willing to follow the dermatologist’s instructions.
- Be looking for a non-invasive skin treatment.
- Realistic expectations regarding the expected results.
- Be in good health both physically and psychologically.
