A introduction to SkinMed® dermal needling DERMA FNS

Automated dermal needling painlessly creates many thousands of tiny holes to the bottom layer of the skin to encourage skin rejuvenation and promote complete and skin remodelling from scars, stretch marks, lines and wrinkles.

These tiny channels stimulate the skins natural healing process and it begins to dissolve old rigid collagen, whilst then releasing serum growth factors, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin development.

A message from SkinMed’s Managing Director, Peter Roberts

“There are so many dermal needling pens available on the market right now, and it can be difficult to know what to look out for, whether you’re introducing needling to your practice for the first time, or simply wanting to upgrade to a better model.

I believe there are several essential specifications you need to look for as standard in an automated needling device…”

Automated dermal needling pioneers

We at SkinMed® put months of research into having a pen designed for SkinMed Exclusively under our brand name SkinMed FNS that ticks all the boxes before becoming the first professional UK registered company to supply dermal needling devices to the UK and to commission numerous clinical studies to prove various uses, read more.

Checking all the boxes
Pulls the needles out

The only pen to pull the needles out

SkinMeds pen is the only pen on the market that uses a unique motor function to fully retract the needles before reinsertion, allowing the pen to glide over the skin with minimal catching, inducing less surface trauma while still delivering maximum collagen renewal.

So our motor doesn’t just push the needles in, it also pulls them out and doesn’t rely on a spring to extract the needles. the Springs in needle heads cannot keep up with the speed of the motor, meaning the needles are not fully out of the skin before being pushed back in by the motor. This causes catching and increased surface trauma, which prolongs healing time and doesn’t often any benefit in collagen renewal, just increased recovery time. SkinMed have the exclusive rights to this pen, designed and created by SkinMed with our manufacturing partners.

Powerful German designed motor

The powerful, mains-operated, brushless motor operates at 8500 rpm without overheating and has a 10,000-hour guarantee, with a 2-year warranty on the pen’s parts.

Other Pen Motors

Many are poor quality which heat up and break down. We have chosen carefully. Pens which are battery powered may run at similar speeds to ours, but they don’t have the same ‘punch’ (wattage, to allow them to push into the skin. This means you get greater bounce of the needleheads off the skin and this reduces results.

Absolutely no cross-contamination

SkinMed Needle heads are made using surgical grade steel, in the same facility where the pen is manufactured, resulting in a perfect fit, with no rattle. Published data and imagery proves and demonstrates that the SkinMed® Derma FNS®’ sealed needles create no cross-contamination risk, while many other pens cannot say the same.

A Professional pen, made for Medical Professionals

The SkinMed Derma FNS is lightweight, easy to adjust and ergonomically designed, with a chrome finish, rather than the cheaper plastic finishes that have become standard in the industry.

Professor Chu

The only automated needling pen used by Prof. Chu

“I was the first person to use automated needling in the UK and it has revolutionised the treatment of scar revision and facial rejuvenation.

The Derma FNS® is the only pen that I use and have done so for many years.
It is supremely easy to use and fantastically versatile allowing treatment to all those difficult areas such as the nose, upper lips and even eyelids.

Treatment at full speed and 2mm needle length gives brilliant results and after EMLA cream is very well tolerated by patients.

The Derma FNS® gets my thumbs up and my full recommendation.”

Professor Tony Chu, President of the ARA UK and Professor and Lecturer, Imperial College, London
