Practitioner FAQ’s

Q: Who can use a Dermapen ? 

A:The Dermapen goes up to 2.5mm into the skin and so for that reason we only sell Dermapen after you have completed our practitioner training course. No previous experience is needed.

Q: How are the needle tips sterilized? 

A:To ensure safety we use only the most advanced sterilization procedures and packaging materials. Currently, we are using gamma ray radiation to sterilize the needle cartridges. This method gives 3 to 5 years of guaranteed sterility from date of manufacture.

Q: I already have insurance for dermal rollers. Will this suffice? 

A:You will need to speak with your insurance company to make sure that they alter the insurance for Dermapen as it works quite differently to the dermal rollers. However, if you have insurance, it shouldn't be a problem to alter it to cover your use of Dermapen.

Q: Is there any downtime after treatments? 

A:Generally no, but the patient may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.

Q: How many times can I use each needle tip? 

A: Dermapen sterile needle tips are designed to be disposable and are for single-use only, to prevent cross-contamination and infection. The needle tips cannot be properly sterilized after use due to the materials used in their construction. We strongly recommend against re-using needle tip cartridges, as patient safety is of paramount importance. Dermapen design permits the user to change the needle tip cartridge after each treatment. A low consumable cost of the needle tips, combined with little to no downtime for the patient, makes Dermapen an ideal solution.
