     Medical Dermapen @ First Health Medical & Skincare Centre

    At our centre, we use the ‘Aesthetic Industry’s Number One choice’ – the original and best skin needling device called the Medical Demapen™.

    DermaPen™ is the world’s most advanced skin revolutionary micro-needling treatment to date! It tightens, lifts and rejuvenates skin associated with a dramatic surgery. We only use medical grade DermaPen™ with accurate and required micro-needling. This method allows for the penetration of our cosmetic products into deeper layers of skin.

    Note: This method can only be used at medical practices for Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

    What is Collagen Induction Therapy?

    Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is accomplished by micro-puncturing the skin with the needles of the DermaPen, resulting in mechanical stimulation of the dermis (deeper layer of the skin). The needles of the DermaPen cause micro-wounds on the skin; these wounds initiate a healing process as the fibroblasts (cells in the skin) begin producing new collagen and elastin fibres. The degree of dermal stimulation depends on the depth and oscillation of the needles. Deep dermal needling significantly increases dermal collagen production and deposition.

    What are the benefits of Dermal Needling and CIT?

    In medical aesthetic, this technique has been widely used for skin rejuvenation. We use this process in combination with special anti-ageing serums and cocktails containing growth factors, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and other proprietary ingredients. Dermal needling increases penetration of active ingredients into the skin that promotes skin healing and production of collagen.

    Skin rejuvenation via DermaPen is a popular tool for:

    • Fine Lines and Wrinkles
    • Acne scarring
    • Surgical and Trauma scars
    • Stretch Marks
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Minimising Pore Size
    • Under-eye bags
    • Reduction of mild skin laxity
    • Poor skin texture

    We offer  Medical Demapen™  for different types of Scarring

    Different types of scars

    • Ice-pick scars – these are the most commonly seen form of acne scarring, which form deep pits in skin

    • Rolling scars – less defined edges but still dip, giving wavelike appearance

    • Boxcar scars – pitted scars with defined edges with crater-like appearance

    • Hypertrophic (keloid) scars – elevated scar tissue that appear as bumps rather than dips

    The procedure of using the Dermapen is commonly known as ‘Skin Needling’ or ‘Collagen Induction Therapy’. This procedure has proven to stimulate new collagen synthesis in the skin to restore smoother, brighter and younger-looking skin.

    Numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles penetrate through the epidermis at a perpendicular angle to create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface using a specialist medical device, for both faster and more precise needle penetration.

    New studies have shown that by opening the skin in this way, there is a dramatic increase in the penetration of any topical product used, thereby increasing its efficacy whilst also stimulating the skin’s healing mechanisms to regenerate healthy skin, and ultimately reducing the appearance of wrinkles and scars. .

    Dermapen promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime. They can also effectively treat hard-to-reach places (around the eyes, nose and lips).

    Dermapen is ideal for treating:

    • Fine Lines
    • Wrinkles
    • Scarring – Acne ,Surgicalor Trauma scars
    • Stretch Marks
    • Pigmentation
    • Minimising Pore Size

    • Under-eye bags


    Whether it`s acne scarring, stretch marks, or large pores, you can see an improvement in your skin from the very first treatment due to the versatile nature of DermaPen™.

    DermaPen™ used with high-quality skincare products, stimulates new collagen production. This effect, leads to a visible reduction of wrinkles and scars, whilst also increasing firmness on the skin. Furthermore, it significantly reduces the visibility of broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation.

    DermaPen™ has the following results:
    • Rejuvenates ageing skin
    • Restores firmness and tightness to flaccid skin
    • Improves overall skin quality and texture
    • Smoothens wrinkles, lines and folds
    • Improves the appearance of large pores
    • Reduces the appearance of atrophic and hypertrophic scars
    • Improves scars caused by acne, chicken pox, burn, accident or any injury
    • Relaxes old scars
    • Diminishes the appearance of old surgical scars
    • Lightens pigmentation marks


    For a pain-free procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area before carrying out Dermapen™ treatments. And to further control the comfort of the treatment, we use variable procedures.


    A free, no-obligation consultation with one of our expert doctors, is essential to determine the suitability and type of treatment required. After a thorough consultation is made, you will be booked for the procedure. This procedure will be perform by one of our highly qualified medical doctor.
    On the day of the procedure, treatment area will be clean and a topical local anaesthetic cream will be apply for 30 to 45 minutes prior to treatment.

    After visually dividing the skin into sections (forehead, cheek, nose, chin, upper lip, eyebrow and glabella), the therapist will hold the skin, and with minimal pressure move the medical device over the skin, by using brief, back and forth motions, in all directions, (vertical, horizontal, both diagonals).

    Specific areas will be targeted to ensure the entire area receives repetitive needling. The aim is to obtain uniform redness and pinpoint bleeding throughout the skin. The skin will then be cleansed gently and disinfected. Finally, serums such as Hyaluronic Acid (skin’s natural moisturiser), will be applied.


    The risk of side effects is low, since the epidermis is not removed.

    You may experience some redness, swollen, dryness, tightness and a bit flaking. Good hydration is required to reduce the risk of side effects.

    Common effects that subside within 48 hours include:
    • Redness (erythema)
    • Itching
    • Mild Swelling (quite rare)
    • Sensitivity to touch
    • Tightness
    • Minimal peeling
    • Downtime: 48 hours

    Benefits of Medical DermaPen™ include:

    • Marked improvement in your skin from the very first treatment
    • Visible and long-lasting results usually seen after 6 weeks
    • Minimally invasive
    • No skin damage (no removal of the epidermis)
    • Virtually painless (topical anaesthetics can be used)
    • Minimal or no side-effects
    • Minimal discomfort post-treatment
    • Can be performed in conjunction with other treatments
    • Short healing time (48hrs)
    • Suitable for all skin types


    You will see a plumping effect almost immediately. However the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results.; Although some improvements can be seen much sooner. The process will continue over the following months and several treatments are usually required.


    After treatment, your skin will appear red and flushed. This is a normal sign indicating the treatment is working, and will subside up to 48 hours later. An SPF 30 cream and other products, advised  by the practitioner should be applied daily following the treatment for at least 0ne – two weeks.


    Recommended course of treatment:

    • For Acne Scarring a course of 6-8 treatments is required at 6 weeks interval
    • For Hyperpigmentation a course of 4-6 treatments is required at 2-4 weeks interval.

    A course of 6 to 8 treatments is required at 4 to 6 weeks interval.

    • A course of 6-8 treatments is required for treatment of acne scarring
      Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face, although prices quoted are based on an area the size of the face.
      • Treatment Duration – 60 minutes approximately

    What can I say about Dr. Rizvi. I read some of her outstanding reviews before meeting her but having had a session to... remove a couple of moles I can tell you words cannot do her justice.She is obviously highly skilled but also creates such a warm and caring atmosphere. You feel completely looked after and you can tell this comes from a place of her wanting to use her talents to help people in the best way she can. She truly is an incredible woman and I can’t recommend her enough!read more

    What a wonderful caring sweet doctor. Professional and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable and respected. I was given... clear honest answers when I had questions. For the first time ever I was looking forward to seeing a doctor for the second time for stitches removal. I would highly recommend first health medical. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I’m still in awe with the doctor, she was just such a lovely woman with positive and warm energy, I felt in safe hands when I was having minor surgery. I can not praise this centre enough!read more
