If you’ve been on the frantic search for an anti-wrinkle cream that gives you results since you hit your 30s but still haven’t quite found your magic jar yet, you’ll be happy to know that there is a new, more effective way of fighting skin aging. It takes more than just massaging on some cream which you can either avail from a skincare professional and / or take home with you!
The gold standard in professional and at-home skin needling technology, Dermapen is a device which bores very tiny holes on your skin. What the micro puncturing does is that it stimulates skin renewal while also enhancing the treatment formulation of skincare products by bringing these deep into your skin where they are most needed to catalyze skin rejuvenation.
The Dermapen revolution began in 2010, and since then, it has become one of the most sought after clinic based procedures because there’s no preparation involved, the procedure is minimally invasive, and results to a very brief downtime.
The third generation Dermapen 3 is a much improved version of the first two versions, capable of boring tinier holes at a much faster rate. From the makers of Dermapen 3 now also comes Dermapen Cryo, which uses liquefied nitrous oxide (N2O) to freeze and destroy unsightly skin marks, and myDermapen, which allows you to obtain the benefits of regularly using Dermapen technology regularly and right in the comfort of your own home.
These tools all have three major advantages — the needles allow ease of control and are highly accurate, the puncturing does not tear skin, and the treatment leads to outcomes you can see and feel.
Manufacturer information and its claims about Dermapen
Cosmetic, dermatological and disinfection equipment, devices and consumables company, Equipmed, an Australian based entity founded in 1976, manufactures Dermapen.
Equipmed claims that Dermapen 3 is capable of delivering visible improvements on acne scarring, stretch marks and skin complexion after 4 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart depending on the severity and skin type.
With Dermapen Cryo, most corrective procedures are completed with just one treatment, and very rarely requires a follow through.
myDermapen, on the other hand, has been proven to improve skin health by making available a before and after scan of the skin, and promises to deliver noticeable results within 3 months of regular, at home use.
How Does Dermapen Work?
What Dermapen 3 and myDermapen does is to deliberately damage your skin by puncturing skin with very tiny holes so as to signal skin cells to produce new skin and make it surface. These procedures also allows for the more efficient delivery of skincare products right where these are most needed.
With Dermapen Cryo, a compressed N2O is used to freeze damaged skin cells and destroy these. myDermapen works with complementary skincare products from Equipmed.

I had my first Dermapen treatment about a month ago. My face feels amazing and I can see and feel that my skin is tighter, softer and more full. I’m going to have another treatment this week and will follow-up with another one in about a month. My Dr recommended 3 treatments for me so I’ll see how great my face looks after my 3rd treatment. – Scott Michaels

Dermapan 3 and Dermapen Cryo treatments may only used by professionals. Ask your dermatologist or skincare professionals about these procedures.
myDermapen is a procedure you can perform at home. Use the following step-by-step instruction as a guide:
Step 1: Test the instrument without the microderm needle cartridge, ensuring good control of the device.
Step 2: Load the microderm needle cartridge clockwise. Lock and wait for a ‘click’ sound to ensure it is locked.
Step 3: Apply DP Dermaceuticals Hyla Active liberally.
Step 4: Think of your face to be divided in to 6 sections: forehead, eye area, cheeks, nose, upper lip, chin / jawline. Begin running the device on your skin in this order.
For best results, use myDermapen with 3D Hyla Active Sculptured Mask and Vitmain Rich Repair, both manufactured under the company’s DF Dermaceuticals.
Use all three devices only as instructed.
