Chemical Peels with Dermafix

Chemical peeling involves the use of chemical agents to “wound” the skin – in a controlled environment. The healing of a wound is a complex process whereby new tissue is constructed in the process and damaged tissue is replaced, making the skin look and feel better than before the “wound”.

Skin conditions best suited to peeling:

  • Aged – peeling encourages cellular renewal and improves skin texture
    Acne congestion – encourages deep cleansing of follicles and removes dead skin cell build-up
  • Hyperpigmentation – Peeling used with selected home care may improve hyperpigmentation
  • Lightly scarred or stretch-marked skin – Peeling encourages cell renewal and lifts off of damaged skin cells
How often can I have a peel?

Peels can be performed as often as every 4 weeks for badly sun damaged skin and extensive blackheads and whiteheads. We recommend 4-6 peels for maximum effectiveness

How long does the treatment take?

Approximately 45 to 60 minutes depending on the peel you are doing

Why choose Dermapen skin needling over the surgical treatments?
  • The Dermapen skin needling gives you rejuvenated and plumper skin with no pain, minimal discomfort and with very little downtime
  • In this therapy, disposable needles are used which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination
  • The depth of the needles is adjustable and this allows for a treatment customized to the patient’s needs
  • Being the most advanced treatment, it can easily treat the hard to reach areas like around the nose, eyes, and lips
  • Needles are injected vertically so that it can easily penetrate scar tissue
  • It is the most controlled and consistent treatment that yields optimal results
  • It causes less pain and redness for the patient


Dermapen’s advanced skin needling technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automated vibrating function. When the Dermapen is moved across the skin’s surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, whilst allowing fine channels to be created to the deeper layers of the skin. The channels can carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for treatment delivery deep into the skin’s fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster-resurfacing results. Advanced skin needling promotes scar-less healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the side effects and downtime.

Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the Dermapen causes less trauma (controlled trauma) and has minimal epidermal (skin) damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort and making it a safer, more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate the risk of cross-contamination, whilst the adjustable needle depths allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen is so advanced that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard-to-reach areas such as around the eyes, lips and nose. Your clinician will assess your skin and treatment area to recommend a treatment plan suitable for you.

Dermapen is recommended to treat:

  • Aged, sagging skin
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips
  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars (acne, surgical and burns)
  • Alopecia*
  • And much more
What is Dermapen?

The Dermapen® is an automated micro-needling device with a disposable tip cartridge that is made up of 12 micro-needles, which uses proprietary technology to penetrate vertically into the skin. The stamping action of the Dermapen’s vertical tip creates invisible micro-injuries to the skin, while stimulating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increase the production of new collagen. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes and the skin becomes rejuvenated and refreshed.

How often should one do a Dermapen treatment

We recommend doing 3 treatments 4 weeks apart, thereafter a follow up treatment every 3 to 6 months

Which skin care concerns does Dermapen address?

Dermapen will treat your skin in many ways, from Anti-aging to acne scarring, pigmentation, lifting and firming

Should I prepare my skin before a Dermapen Treatment?

There is no need to prepare the skin but for optimal results we recommend  a period of effective active treatment creams such as Vitamin A or C to build up the strength of your skin.

Is the treatment painful?

Topical anaesthesia cream is applied prior to the treatment, this renders the treatment pain free

How will my skin feel?

The week post treatment your skin will feel tight, some may experience light peeling, this will all dissipate by 5 to 7 days post treatment

What is the down time?

The day of your treatment your skin will be red and feel “sunburnt”, this will calm down a few hours after treatment

When can I wear makeup?

You can wear makeup the day after treatment

How soon after filler injections can i have Dermapen done?

It is recommended to wait at least 4 days after filler injections, so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. Or have your Dermapen treatment before filler injections.
