DermaStamp micro skin needling is a non-invasive, clinical treatment that uses an oscillating pen with 6 medical grade, stainless steel micro needles to treat a variety of skin conditions. Tiny puncture channels are created within the epidermis and dermis to encourage an organic renewal and regenerating response to encourage visible skin rejuvenation to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pigmentation, improve acne scarring, fight acne inflammation, reduce pore size and enable deeper penetration of skin care products.

Before and after care...
No Retin-A products or applications for 12 hours prior to treatment.
No Auto-immune therapies or products for 12 hours prior to treatment.
No prolonged sun exposure or sun burns to the treatment area 24 hours prior to treatment.
Skin should be clean and make-up free.
A skin consultation will need to be done at least 1 week prior to performing the skin needling treatment.
Preparing the skin for this procedure will ensure optimum results. Healthy skin will respond better and results will last longer. Skin cells need nutrients for best function and a DermaStamp recommended skin care regime should include:
Lira prescribed Cleanser (AM/PM)
Lira PRO Lite Serum (AM/PM)
Lira PRO C4 Retinol Serum (PM)
Lira SOLAR SHIELD 30+ Oil Free/ Hydrating (AM and throughout the day)
It is essential that the post treatment care is performed correctly following your treatment, should you have any concerns or questions please contact the clinic immediately.
Until the skin is completely healed, these LIRA Products should be used:
BIO Enzyme Cleanser (AM/PM)
PRO Lite Serum (AM/PM)
BIO Recovery Balm (AM/PM)
SOLAR SHIELD 30 Oil Free with PSC (AM and throughout the day)
Do not perform any vigorous exercise for at least 12 hours after treatment.
Do not apply make-up for at least 12 hours after the treatment. We recommend Lira BB cream for use post procedure versus other foundations.
DermaStamp needling may trigger a cold sore response in patients and a prophylaxis medication should be recommended to those who are prone to breakouts.
After the treatment, take precautions against sun exposure. Only apply Lira Oil Free 30+ sunscreen with PSC after the DermaStamp treatment due to the skin’s channels being open for a period of time and due to the toxic nature of some sunscreens on the market.
For the next 24-48 hours do not use products containing Vitamin A, vitamin C, AHA's (Glycolic, Lactic or Salicylic) or highly perfumed products.
For the first 1-3 days the skin will be very dry and feel tight.
After 2-3 days patients can return to regular skin care products or as soon as it is comfortable to do so.
Avoid alcohol based toners 10-14 days.
Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 10 days if possible.
It is recommended that you use Lira BIO Recovery Balm for the next 3-5 days to optimise results and reduce the risk of negative after effects.
Questions and Answers...
What is skin needling?
Skin Needling is a non-invasive, clinical treatment that uses micro needles to treat a variety of skin conditions ranging from ageing and pigmentation to acne and scarring.
Does it hurt?
A numbing cream will be applied to increase comfort when receiving a DermaStamp clinical treatment. Patients can resume normal activities almost immediately, but may experience some minor redness for a day or two.
What is the recovery time?
Day 1: Erythema and red appearance and severity will depend upon how aggressive the treatment was performed.
Day 2: A red hue or pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day.
Day 3-5: Skin can be pink or normal colour. Swelling subsides.
The needle length and gauge of all DermaStamp devices have been specifically engineered to ensure the shortest and most comfortable recover time possible, whilst still ensuring maximum results and treatment longevity. Immediately following in-clinic treatments, the skin may appear temporarily reddened, similar to that of a mild to light sunburn. Whilst some patients have reported that the skin remains red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present.
Who is skin needling for?
What results will I see?
Results may be seen even after one treatment. Patients report a firmer, softer, smoother, even-toned, more revitalised skin with a visible decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pigmentation and sun damage, improved acne scarring, reduced pore size and acne inflammation. The e DermaStamp machine induces micro- needle punctures to the skins surface, as a result, the skin released growth hormones and healing factors that stimulate new collagen to be deposited under the skin surface. The repair process will actually extend over a 12 - 16 week period after treatment and collagen will still restructuring up to 12 months post treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Depending on the appropriate treatment plan prescribed by your therapist, an average of 3 treatments performed 4-6 weeks apart, with regular return visits are critical to the success of your treatment.
E DermaStamp has been designed for any person with skin conditions such as: ageing, pigmentation, scarring, acne and enlarged pores.
