The difference between Dermapen and Radio Frequency Microneedling

Our gorgeous dermal therapist Krystal is currently undertaking her Bachelor of Dermal Science through University of Victoria. She’s a wealth of knowledge and is keen to explain the difference between the Dermapen and our Radio Frequency machine.

With so many treatments available to the public, you may be asking ‘what’s the difference between the two machines?’

At Laser Skin Centre we’re here to educate and inform you before you make any decision with cosmetic treatments.

Radio Frequency Microneedling is one of the most advanced technologies used, like our 3-deep technology from Endymed.

It has the benefit of mechanical impact, with our nurses able to treat as deep as three milemetres with needle penetration and bulk heating the surrounding tissue to 42 degrees celsius. This activates fibroblasts cells to produce healthy collagen remodelling.

This is perfect for active acne, acne scarring, enlarged pores, fine to medium lines and general volume replacement.

Generally speaking, and depending on the concern, only 3-6 treatments are required with Radio Frequency Needling to get the desired result with maintenance treatments in the future.

Dermapen is still a great treatment that we also offer here in clinic as it works through mechanical impact to create a micro injury to produce collagen remodelling. Dermapen works, however, without the added bonus of bulk heating. Six to twelve treatments are needed to get desired results.
