Skin Needling In Melbourne
Are you looking to enhance your skin tone, appearance and texture? Or maybe you want to reduce the appearance of scarring and blemishes. Skin needling with the Dermapen or MDerma needling device could be the option you are looking for when it comes to long-term improvement of your skin.
The DOC Clinic provides skin needling in Australia with the Dermapen and MDerma dermal needling systems. These micro needle therapy treatments are among the most exciting new and natural ways to improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and soften scars. A type of collagen induction therapy, treatment is suitable for all skin types and is normally performed on the face, neck and hands.
Dr Omarjee and his trained team of professionals perform skin needling in Melbourne at our Hoppers Crossing clinic, using MDerma and Dermapen treatment for acne scars, stretch marks and more.
Our derma needling treatments use surgical-grade instruments with stainless steel micro needles. The fine needles on the Dermapen and MDerma tools are used to penetrate the top layers of skin, which in turn ‘tricks’ the skin into performing full rejuvenation of the cells. Micro needle therapy also allows for the increased absorption of your usual skin care products, which assists in improving the look and feel of your skin.
Skin needling can also be combined with Factor 4, an autologous conditioned serum. The process is similar to blood injections such as PRP, with the treatment using growth factors derived from platelets (the cells in blood). As a result, Factor 4 boasts excellent antioxidant and anti-aging properties, making it suitable for use with skin needling and Dermapen treatment.
How Much Does Skin Needling Cost?
Prices for skin needling in Australia vary according to a range of factors, including whether Factor 4 is incorporated. Dr Omarjee is available to discuss pricing and all financing options with you during your first consultation for collagen induction therapy.

What Are The Benefits Of Micro Needling?
The benefits of micro needling include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as improvement of the appearance of scars and stretch marks. Collagen induction therapy can also be beneficial for giving skin a healthier and more youthful appearance, making it an ideal anti-ageing treatment.
What Should I Expect During The Treatment?
During a micro needle therapy treatment, a naturally occurring substance and other serums are used to help hydrate the skin and minimise fine lines. Factor 4 may also be used depending on your preferences. A topical anaesthetic can be used to minimise discomfort during the treatment.
As it’s a type of collagen induction therapy, the treatment promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin fibres, which can help make the skin feel smoother and tighter. Creating microscopic punctures in the epidermis, skin needling with Dermapen and MDerma is minimally invasive with little damage to the epidermis, which means that collagen production is significantly quicker than other invasive treatments.
Is Microneedling Effective?
Yes, microneedling performed using the Dermapen can be an effective treatment for a range of skin conditions and concerns. While Dermapen treatment results can vary from person to person, most patients will experience improvements that can last up to a year.
Is There Much Downtime?
Part of the reason for the growing popularity of skin needling in Australia is the minimal downtime.
At The DOC Clinic, Dr Omarjee performs each micro needle therapy treatment in a clinical setting to deliver optimal results. Post-treatment, there is often redness in the treated areas; however, nothing that poses damage. The next day, there can be some residual redness of the skin, but this can usually be well concealed with makeup. The skin will feel somewhat warm and rough for a day or two. Treated patients typically resume their normal activities the day after their procedure.
How Long Does It Take To See Results With Dermapen?
You should notice, within a matter of days*, a softening and subtle fresh look to the skin; however, the real results may take at least 3 months to begin. The long-term results can begin to show at the 3-month mark and may continue for approximately a year after treatment.
Skin Needling – Before And After Treatment
Prior to skin needling, your Melbourne DOC Clinic practitioner will discuss your individual needs with you – including any specific areas of concern you wish to address.
For the first 48 hours following Dermapen treatment, Dr Omarjee recommends the following post-management care:
- Do not use glycolic acid, retinol and acidic skin care products with these “active” ingredients
- Do not touch or rub the face
- Do not use spray tan products
- Avoid makeup
- Avoid sun exposure for 12-24 hours
It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr Omarjee so he can assess and advise you on the best treatment and skin needling before and after care.
* Results will vary from person to person and with various degrees of efficacy.
