Dermapen Micro-needling: What to expect and aftercare

Wondering what the Dermapen is all about? How’s the experience of Microneedling? How will your skin react? We at Slim Spa have got all the answers!

Slim Spa's Dermapen Microneedling treatment is an advanced skincare procedure that offers unparalleled results for skin pigmentation, wrinkles, acne scars and open pores. It’s a Microneedling technology well known for collagen production and new skin tissues.

The American Academy of Dermatology Association believes that Microneedling helps reduce scars and dark spots, and also improve skin's elasticity. Your skin is stimulated to produce new cells while the fine lines and wrinkles reduce noticeably.


It is a minimally invasive procedure in which a vertical pen shaped tool is evenly used across the skin. The tool has sterilised microneedles that penetrate through the skin making tiny pricks. The shape of the Dermapen is suitable for hard-to-reach areas like around the nose, eyes and lips.

The treatment begins by applying an anaesthetic cream to the skin. Followed by the Microneedling process which lasts for about 30 minutes. It is then finished off with a soothing growth serum.


Since it is a minimally invasive treatment, the recovery doesn’t take much time. You may experience a little skin irritation, inflammation or redness which might last for 3 to 4 days. However, doctors believe that this is a natural way of skin healing.

It will take about a week for the skin to heal completely until you can return to your regular skincare and make-up.


Your skin will remain highly sensitive after the treatment. Hence, the aftercare is extremely important. The skin pores remain open until completely healed. Until then avoid sun exposure, make-up and skincare products that contain retinol or alpha-hydroxy acids.

Best is to keep yourself hydrated and wait for the redness to subside naturally.

Dermapen Microneedling is the most efficient treatment for women wanting to reverse the skin clock. At Slim Spa, we recommend that to get the desired results of Dermapen Microneedling, you must take at least 3 to 6 sessions. This may vary depending on your age and the skin problem you want to treat.
