Dermapen is a skin treatment which uses a handheld device to perform microneedling of the skin.

Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses small, sterilised needles to cause micro-injury to the skin. The purpose of this is to cause controlled damage that triggers the skins natural healing processes. These healing processes generate new collagen and elastin in order to improve skin texture, elasticity and overall skin health. 

Studies have shown that skin treated using 4 microneedling sessions over 4 months caused a 400% increase in collagen and elastin within the six months after treatment.

Microneedling is primarily used on the face, but can be applied elsewhere, to reduce the appearance of:

  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Sun Damage
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Ageing Skin
  • Stretch Marks

Dermapen is a microneedling pen device that features needles that are pressed into the skin to cause controlled damage to the skin. The reduced intensity of the delivery mechanism in the dermapen means that it delivers the same result with minimal downtime compared to other microneedling devices.

I had the most amazing experience at Trikwan, and I can’t speak highly enough about Susana, the fantastic professional who has transformed my skincare journey. From the very first visit, I knew I was in capable hands.

Susana is not just amazing at what she does; she’s also incredibly honest and transparent throughout the process. Her honesty instills confidence and trust, which is invaluable when it comes to your skin. She provides expert guidance and recommendations tailored to your unique needs.

I’ve been a regular for Valmont facials at Trikwan, and I can’t recommend them enough. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. The quality of care and the use of Valmont products make each visit a pampering experience.
