Dermapen™ at Hannah London
DermaPen is an advanced medical micro – needling procedure that overcomes the handheld roller micro-needling tool. The handheld device with an attached micro-needling pen glides smoothly over the skin of your face and body and uses a cluster of fine needles to target and treat the likes of acne, acne scarring, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, and more. The DermaPen is able to reach deeper into the dermal layers of the skin, targeting blemishes closer to their root cause, reducing facial lines, and encouraging natural collagen production in your skin. The automated movement of the DermaPen minimizes pain and discomfort and promotes even absorption of topical serums and acids, thereby improving overall results.
Our advanced & award-winning Hannah London aesthetic medispa provides you with the best, professional, and advanced DermaPen treatment in London.
This Medispa is led by a highly trained, skilled, and qualified team with medical directors administering and overseeing our advanced aesthetic treatments. To learn more about DermaPen, you can find more information in the Frequently Asked Questions section below.
How does DermaPen Micro-Needling Work?
The Dermapen handheld device has a detachable sterile needle cartridge tip that contains micro stainless steel needles. When active during the procedure the spring-loaded needles in the tip perform a unique automated stamping motion, making tiny micro-punctures in the skin, which results in stimulation of fresh and healthy collagen production and elastin in the skin.
These DermaPen tips come sterilized in individual packaging that can be easily loaded into the handheld device therefore each client gets a brand new tip. After the treatment, the tip is safely disposed of.
What are the steps of a DermaPen treatment?
Before the Dermapen treatment is begun, a cocktail of anti-aging serum is blended together.
- The sterile DermaPen needling cartridge is attached to the Dermapen handpiece.
- The face is cleansed to prepare it for the derma pen treatment. The serum is applied to the face. Then the treatment begins.
- After the micro-needling with the handpiece is completed, a hydrating facial mask is applied. Following with cold gel pads to soothe and massage the face.
- The treatment is completed with a vitamin-rich repair cream.
Difference between DermaPen and DermaRoller Tool
Dermapen is the brand name for a handheld micro – needling device that replaces the traditional micro-needling roller. Instead of a wheel covered with microneedles, the Dermapen is a handheld device designed to address all the issues with the traditional derma roller.
Both micro-needling pen and micro-needling roller are forms of micro-needling used to stimulate the production of new collagen by needling the skin. The Dermapen is equipped with surgical grade disposable needles for the patient’s safety, that can be adjusted to different depths so that the treatment is not too deep in sensitive areas, and tailored to individual needs.
During the treatment, Dermapen’s micro needles vertically stamp the skin of the epidermis which penetrates all skin types, textures, and pigments without the risk of damaging the top layer (epidermal layer) of the skin. The stamping action of Dermapen vertical needles is not only effective in minimizing pain and blood, but also offers a safe and consistent treatment method that better rejuvenates the skin. The stamping motion of a Dermapen also causes less trauma to the epidermis by making smaller holes than the holes made by a dermal roller, resulting in less discomfort and less downtime, also allowing maximum penetration to the dermal layer, further supporting skins natural collagen and elastin production.
On the other side, the rolling micro-needling tool creates uneven incisions of the needles on, that can create damaging incisions in the skin leading to high pain, bleeding, and longer recovery time. Unlike the Dermapen, roller micro-needling is unable to get into the nooks and crannies of the face.
DermaPen is an effective treatment and is an ideal option for using on all of the facial contours; as disposable needles are used to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination,
DermaPen Microneedling is great for treating atrophic and surgical scars because of its ability to effectively penetrate and break down scar tissue. The precise technique results in increased collagen and elastin in the treated area, to give you smoother skin that looks refreshed, restored, and youthful.

HOW SHOULD I PREP BEFORE MY DERMAPEN TREATMENT?
On the day of the Dermapen procedure, we ask you to avoid makeup and skincare products with active ingredients, so that the treated area is kept clean and dry for the treatment.
For best results, we recommend our clients to not apply any regenerative products that contain retinol or alpha-hydroxy acids on the skin, 3 days before the treatment.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY SKIN POST-TREATMENT?
Post-treatment avoid wetting your face for at least 6 hours, therefore it has to be dry. Avoid any regenerative skin care products for 5 – 7 days post-treatment. Both sun exposure and tanning should be avoided during the treatment to reduce the risk of side effects.
We recommend you to use Hyaluronic Acid serum from the morning after the treatment to help hydrate the skin. Your Dermapen aesthetician will thoroughly discuss your post-treatment skincare with you.
CAN I GET OTHER FACIAL TREATMENTS WITH DERMAPEN?
As Dermapen is a very specific treatment, it’s all about the timing. We also offer chemical Peels that can be do together with your DermaPen treatment. Your aesthetician will discuss your options and care with you.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPEN?
Dermapen is a very effective way
- to remove acne scars or any imperfections in the skin due to blemishes
- to improve the overall skin tone and texture
- to minimize pores in the skin
- to reduce superficial wrinkles
- to reduce the appearance of stretch marks
- to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin.
- skincare products perform better after treatment too as they are able to better absorb into and nourish your skin.
Dermapen does not harm the dermal layers of the skin. This device breaks up scar tissue, increases collagen and elastin production, and encourages new blood vessels to supply the area. Because DermaPen does not damage the epidermis, healing time is accelerated.
Skin rejuvenation using Dermapen DermaPen can be used to address fine lines and wrinkles caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, and lack of hydration, by stimulating the growth of new, healthy collagen.
In addition to skin rejuvenation due to improved microcirculation, DermaPen treatments also give the skin a brighter look by thickening the dermis and boosting collagen and elastin production.
DermaPen minimizes pore size. The two main culprits contributing to the appearance of enlarged pores are congested skin and decreased skin elasticity. As DermaPen stimulates collagen and elastin to firm skin, pore appearance is reduced and skin is decongested.
DermaPen for Stretch Marks – Stretch marks are caused by the dermis being torn; DermaPen’s tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing response. As a result, this encourages the body to renew the skin cells in the treatment area.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY DERMAPEN MICRO-NEEDLING CONSULTATION?
You will meet with one of our highly trained aesthetic practitioner at Hannah London Boulevard Drive or Harley Street, London for an in-person assessment of your skin.
Your aesthetician will discuss the following with you;
- The best treatment options for your condition and the likely results that each treatment will accomplish

- Review your medical history
- Address any questions you may have

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO WAIT BETWEEN DERMAPEN APPOINTMENTS?
Micro-needling is usually done every 4-6 weeks. Most patients initially start with 4-6 treatments in order to achieve the greatest clinical effectiveness. In an anti-aging regimen, most patients repeat micro-needling every 12 to 16 weeks between treatments.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS AFTER RECEIVING A DERMAPEN?
Depending on the skin and the intensity of the treatment to target certain areas, you may experience pinpoint bleeding only during the treatment.
You may also find your skin to be temporary red in appearance. This is completely normal and can last between a couple of hours to 24 hours post-treatment depending on the treatment intensity.
