Dermapen Microneedling

Your skin, my lovelies, is usually a reflection of what’s happening inside your body.

What is Dermapen Microneedling?

Dermapen treatment involves gliding a small device over the skin that delivers microscopic punctures (only a few millimetres deep) using very tiny needles. As they’re moving incredibly fast in a vertical stamping motion, you won’t really feel this. Dermapen treatment stimulates the natural healing process in the skin, resulting in fresh, new collagen, elastin, and a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion. Yes, please!

To enhance the Dermapen treatment process, active solutions containing collagen, vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients are applied. These lovelies penetrate the deeper layers of the skin through tiny channels to maximise results.

What sort of results will I get from Dermapen Microneedling?

One thing you’ll need to know is that like most transformations, the results aren’t immediate. Your skin will be glowing and a little plump and pink right after your treatment, but since your body needs to create fresh new collagen, the real outcome will come a couple of months later.

For the ultimate skin rejuvenation, you’ll get the best results when you get between three and six Dermapen treatments every month or so.

Another thing to consider is that all microneedling treatments are not created equal, and some pens and techniques yield lesser results. Dermapen is the original and most trusted microneedling brand. Designed in Australia, they have improved their microneedling pen every few years, bringing us to the latest model, the Dermapen4. This device is safer than ever. It has an anti-contamination mechanism and an increased amount of smaller, faster-moving needles compared to other microneedling pens on the market, meaning less pain and more gain.

Not all microneedling is created equal. While all devices have been designed to boost the collagen and elastin production in the skin by stimulating a healing response, the outcomes will differ depending on the device and techniques used.
When it comes to an in-clinic device (which goes deeper into the skin than home rollers), you can’t go past the unique benefits of the Dermapen4.

Dermapen is the original microneedling brand. Years of experience, millions of dollars of research and only the most advanced technology and design mean greater precision, speed, safety and features with each new device.

The Dermapen4 generates 48% more microchannels than its predecessor, the Dermapen3, and 104% more than the average microneedling device. This is due to the smaller, greater number of needles oscillating at 110 revolutions per second (and as a bonus, less pain for your treatment) working to create additional, tinier micro-injuries at an adjustable depth, and ultimately optimising skin’s rejuvenation.

All Gold ATP clinics use the latest Dermapen4 device, so you can rest assured you’re achieving superior skin outcomes with the highest performing device.


The Dermapen4 excels in hygiene and safety precautions, and needling your face isn’t something you want to be skimping on when it comes to those! The unrivalled and patent-pending design of the anti-contamination system on the Dermapen4 ensures no fluid backflow, no cross-contamination and no drag of needles. In addition, advanced oscillation technology means the needles have increased speed and safety. And most important of all, each treatment uses an entirely new, sterile needle cartridge (handled carefully with sterile gloves).

All Gold ATP clinics are highly trained and skilled in safety features and in keeping equipment sterile, meaning no risks are taken when it comes to hygiene and safety.


We’ve heard more than a few alarming stories with the wrong products being used on the skin during microneedling treatments. Some products that are usually safe and nourishing to the skin (one example we’ve seen recently was Emu Oil!) can cause severe reactions when infused into the skin with microneedling. The DP Dermaceuticals line are the only protocol products specifically developed to be used when performing Dermapen treatments and have been designed and proven to help your skin achieve optimum results. Each product’s clean, active ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid, boost skin results and healing. These products have been endorsed for safe infusion into the skin without side effects by thousands of practitioners around the world for years.

Our skin shows what’s happening on the inside of our body

Food choices affect the body and in turn the skin – often referred to as our largest organ.
Moving away from traditional eating to Western foods and the eating-out culture are – without a doubt – causing nutritional imbalances.
Unfortunately, even when we change our food choices, some of the damage that’s already showing on our skin is irreversible.
Zinc eatheal

One important example of nutrients for skin

Zinc: it is one of those key minerals our whole bodies can’t do without. When it comes to our skin, zinc is vital for the transportation of Vitamin A, wound healing, sebum regulation and enzymatic activity (this impacts the skin’s ability to shed old skin cells).
For foods from the garden however, levels of zinc are often deficient.
So where to turn?
Oysters contain more zinc per serving than any other food, but red meat and poultry provide the majority of zinc on our plates. Other good food sources include beans (legumes), nuts, certain types of seafood (such as crab and lobster), and whole grains.
So, take your pick and load your plates. Your skin will guide you.
