Dermapen Medical Microneedling at Natural Aesthetics Cape Town and Somerset West

Distinguishing Between Microneedling Devices and Treatments

At Natural Aesthetics, our Dermapen Microneedling treatments adhere to the highest clinical standards, customizing the process for each patient while adhering to fundamental principles. This patient-centric and ethical approach, backed by actual clinical studies, differentiates our treatments from the generic offerings commonly available.

It is essential to recognize that not all microneedling devices and treatments are created equal. While numerous devices flood the market, very few prioritise investing in quality, medical-grade devices that undergo rigorous clinical testing to ensure their efficacy, safety, and long-term effects, including potential side effects.

Advantages of Dermapen 4™ Medical Microneedling
  • Enhanced Efficiency: Dermapen 4™ features a 16-needle cartridge, surpassing the 12-needle configuration of Dermapen 3. This design facilitates a faster inflammatory response, expediting the rejuvenation process.
  • Increased Micro-channels: The Dermapen 4™ generates 47.9% more micro-channels than Dermapen 3 and an astounding 104% more than any counterfeit device available. These micro-channels play a crucial role in promoting skin regeneration and revitalisation.
  • Accelerated Speed: With an impressive rate of 1,920 puncture channels per second, the Dermapen 4™ allows us to infuse nearly double the amount of serums and active ingredients into the skin per treatment.
  • Improved Comfort: The addition of 620 micro-channels in Dermapen 4™ enhances the speed and comfort of the treatment compared to previous versions.


At Natural Aesthetics, we take pride in being the pioneering clinic that introduced the first Dermapen 4™ Microneedling device, not just in Cape Town, but across South Africa. This advanced device revolutionizes the field of skin rejuvenation.

Discover Our Clinical and Results-Driven Approach

Cleansing: We begin by thoroughly cleansing the area with a Lamelle cleanser to ensure optimal treatment conditions. We then use an alcohol swab to further enhance safety by wiping each area before commencing treatment.

Prescription-strength numbing: A medical-grade numbing cream, consisting of 30% Lidocaine as prescribed by one of our medical doctors, is applied for 20-30 minutes before the treatment. This ensures utmost comfort throughout the procedure.

Custom mesoestetic actives: We apply a specialised serum, by mesoestetic, chosen for your unique skin needs, in conjunction with microneedling to infuse these targeted active ingredients into the skin. A thicker Hyaluronic Acid serum by Lamelle, used as a gliding gel, ensures optimal delivery and comfort. Our dedication to research guarantees the best possible results for each treatment.

Microneedling Techniques & Pinpoint Bleeding: Each area receives thorough and precise treatment, as we glide diagonally and back, reverse the direction, and then move up and down. This proven method ensures accurate delivery of the actives while inducing pinpoint bleeding, a requirement for collagen and elastin production.

Strategic treatment process: We methodically treat one section at a time, allowing ample time for numbing cream application on the yet-to-be-treated areas. This ensures that more sensitive areas receive extended numbing, resulting in a more comfortable experience overall. 

SkinCeuticals Masque & LED Therapy: We apply a SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective masue, a clinically tested product, proven to reduce redness and enhance post procedure recovery, in conjunction with LED light therapy, which uses an array of bright light-emitting diodes, clinically proven light energy (UV-free) that penetrates deep the skin, stimulating cellular activity, enhancing blood and oxygen flow, and strengthening the capillary walls. Ensuring a rejuvenated result and accelerated recovery.

Reducing risks and downtime: Once the treatment is complete, we double cleanse your skin. To eliminate potential infections, we spray Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) , an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic solution, over the treatment area, which has shown to reduce downtime as per scientific research as well as per our patients’ feedback.

Reducing redness and skin protection: We also apply a moisturizer, by Active Ceuticals, a medical-grade SPF, by Heliocare 360, to safeguard your skin, as wel as a medical-grade concealer to camouflage any post-treatment redness. This concealer contains ingredients and peptides that expedite recovery, minimise the risk of infection, and provide excellent coverage.

Aftercare Products Included

Discover the vital aftercare products provided by Natural Aesthetics to optimize the results of your Dermapen treatment.

After the treatment, we’ll send you home with three essential aftercare products – a fast skin barrier repair cream, HOCL anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory spray and and a decanted jar of medical-grade concealer, Oxygenetix, helping you manage any redness for 2-3 days post-treatment.

Medical Microneedling Benefits

When following the correct protocols, our Dermapen treatment induces collagen, elastin and skin cell turnover – keeping the skin youthful, plump and firm, whilst needling in mesoestetic serums to target deeper layers of pigmentation, uneven skin texture and scarring. Its unique scar setting and protocols allow us to treat deep, and atrophic scars, including surgical, post-acne scars, uneven skin texture and wrinkles.

Slight peeling may occur a few days post-treatment. Noticeable improvements in skin texture and tone appear within a week, with ongoing enhancement as the skin regenerates. Adhering to aftercare instructions is key for the best results.
