New research and clinical testing has improved on a powerful new skin care treatment that’s proven to do the impossible—literally restoring skin to its youthful beauty in just a few treatments—without surgery and fewer side effects.
Introducing the Dermapen3™, the automated needling treatment that naturally stimulates collagen and elastin better than traditional micro-needling. It gives skin strength and structure and helps replace dead skin cells so you get a young, healthy look without the often painful side effects of traditional micro-needling.
Colaz is excited to offer this enhanced treatment for clients who want firmer skin, fewer wrinkles, and a noticeable difference in areas disfigured by a scar. The Dermapen3™ also improves the appearance of acne, chicken pox scars, stretch marks, pigmentation, and more.
It’s the Dermapen3™ superior AOVN™ technology that allows for smooth, drag-less operation and optimal results. That’s because the Dermapen3™ can produce over 1,300 micro holes in the skin per second, providing unsurpassed efficiency over more traditional micro-needling devices.
It vertically pierces the skin with smaller holes than with a roller. You get better results with less damage no matter your skin type or color. The old method of using dermal rollers creates trenches in the epidermis and lacerates the tissue. This increases pain, causes extensive bleeding, and longer recovery times.
The Dermapen3™ has a multi-speed and adjustable needle depth for more accurate settings. Our therapist can adjust the needle depth during treatment to effortlessly maneuver around facial contours and delicate features including the eye, mouth, and nose areas.
Collagen is a protein that provides structural support, strength, and elasticity within the body. In the dermis, or middle layer of skin, it helps form a fibrous network where new cells can grow. It is also necessary for the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.
It is natural in all of us for collagen production to decline with age. This leads to sagging skin and the formation of lines and wrinkles.
So how does needling help the skin?
The tiny punctures in the skin’s surface cause micro-injuries, which in turn induce an immune response and the creation of new healthy collagen. In effect, the Dermapen3™ treatment signals the body to produce collagen to restore the damaged area. This tightens the skin making it look more radiant and youthful. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and scars.
An additional feature of the Dermapen3™ is that the punctures also act as tiny conduits that carry hydrating nutrients down into skin layers. We apply our Colaz skin care products to penetrate the skin more deeply and work harder for additional rejuvenation.
We recommend the following treatment schedules; however, this may vary on individual needs:
We suggest you schedule a pre-procedure appointment with us at your nearest Colaz branch. After a careful consultation, we’ll determine how you should prepare for the procedure.
Depending on the treatment and your skin type, we may recommend some active creams before and some post-procedural creams after for optimal results. The skin products used are the following:

We are often asked if this procedure is painful. The fact is that it all depends on the individual pain threshold. "The therapist will decide on the depth of penetration and may apply topical anesthetic cream if necessary. Some Dermapen clients report minimal pain, so in these cases no anesthetic cream has been used. Every case is different."
For the most part, there is no downtime after your treatment. You may experience redness for 12-48 hours after the procedure, but most people are able to return quickly to their everyday activities. We can also apply a breathable mask that will secure the skin and cover any redness. This makes it much easier for you to return to work right away.
In our experience, you should see improvement quickly, after the first treatment. Then after 4 to 6 treatments, your skin will continue to improve with more long-term, dramatic results. This is especially true when you apply the recommended post-treatment care.
