Micro Needling Derma Pen Skin Needling Rotorua Freya Aesthetics

What is skin needling?

Skin Needling, also known as Dermapen® or micro-needling is a non-surgical treatment that promotes facial rejuvenation through the controlled damage to the skin through the use of a micro-needling device.

Often described as minimally invasive, skin needling works by fine needles in the device causing punctures to the skin, these punctures therefore promote the release of the skins inflammation response. This natural response in the skin leads to the production of new collagen, elastin and capillaries within the skin. This production allows for improvement in skin texture, scarring, overall appearance of the skin through firmness and hydration.


Dermapen® is a medical device. All medical device treatments carry risks and benefits. It may not be appropriate for everyone. Your trained technician will advise if this treatment is right for you and if so, the possible side effects you should be aware of. Individual results may vary.
