Effective skin rejuvenation starts within the underlying layers of dermis as the body’s own processes come together to stimulate healing and cell renewal. Microneedling is the catalyst that sets the renewal process in motion to produce gradual, long-lasting improvement in the skin. At Kaya Cosmedica, we offer microneedling with Dermapen 4, a leading skin needling technology. We also offer Dermafrac, a treatment that combines microneedling with the infusion of vital nutrients into the dermis to feed the underlying dermal layers for an enhancement you can see and feel.


This cosmetic treatment uses a device that administers multiple fine needles into the dermal structure at one time to create micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s healing response. The depth of the treatment can be adjusted to produce the precise amount of regenerative response necessary to achieve the exact amount of skin rejuvenation you desire.

Microneedling is often referred to as collagen induction therapy because the needles delivered into the skin stimulate the body’s collagen production. Collagen is a protein that supports the underlying dermal structure to produce skin that is soft and smooth. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen which leads to skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling induces an increase in collagen levels without significant discomfort or downtime, creating natural results over time that can last for many months.


Microneedling is an effective procedure for addressing a wide range of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and facial wrinkles
  • Shallow scarring from acne or other causes
  • Pigmentation irregularities, including brown spots and freckles
  • Open, enlarged pores
  • Skin that is dry, dehydrated or sun damaged

Dr Khinda and the professional team at Kaya Cosmedica will provide a personalised assessment of your skin to determine whether microneedling is the right treatment to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Unlike laser treatments, this procedure works for all skin types and tones, including darker skin colours.


Dermapen 4 is a pen-like device with adjustable needle depth, speed and treatment settings. The needles create tiny pinpricks in the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the layer underneath the epidermis), triggering elastin and collagen production and increasing cell turnover. Dermapen 4 microneedling can address a variety of facial skin concerns — even in delicate areas like around the eyes and lips — as well as body blemishes like scars and stretch marks.

Dermafrac incorporates infusion therapy with the microneedling process to enhance our patients’ outcomes further. Serums are applied to the skin during the Dermafrac treatment that can penetrate the deeper dermal layers where they can have the most significant effect. We offer a variety of serums so that we can tailor each treatment to the unique needs of each patient. Our serum offerings help our patients:

  • Hydrate — key ingredients are used to help skin cells bind to water molecules for long-lasting hydration and a marked decrease in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clarify — alpha and beta hydroxy acids combine to reduce signs of ageing as well as the appearance of whiteheads and blackheads caused by acne
  • Rejuvenate — essential nutrients are used to wake up a dull, tired skin tone and restore a healthy, radiant glow
  • Lighten — kojic acid is added to the mix to address pigmentation irregularities and produce a smooth, blemish-free complexion
  • Protect — the use of antioxidants helps to prevent free radical damage to the skin caused by UV exposure, environmental pollution and the ageing process

We will recommend the best serum for you based on your precise concerns and skin type. The topical formulations are applied at the same time the microneedling takes place to ensure the best possible results without extending the treatment time.


Microneedling with Dermapen 4 begins with cleansing and sterilising your skin. Once your skin is properly prepared, the device settings will be adjusted to the appropriate levels for your concerns and goals. The Dermapen 4 is not rolled or dragged across the skin like other skin needling technologies — instead, the handpiece is used in a gentle stamping motion for increased precision and maximum patient comfort. The handpiece’s unique design also reduces drag, cross-contamination and fluid backflow, making Dermapen 4 treatments safer and more hygienic than other options.

Although every patient’s experience is different, most people find the sensations of a microneedling procedure tolerable. There is no need to apply a skin numbing agent prior to a Dermapen 4 treatment. Immediately after the procedure, your skin may look red and feel warm and tight. Downtime is not required, and any post-treatment effects you experience will likely subside within a day.

At Kaya Cosmedica, we begin your microneedling treatment with a microdermabrasion session to enhance your results. This exfoliation treatment removes the outermost skin cells and debris from the skin to create a clean, fresh palette for the microneedling to follow. Microdermabrasion also promotes healthy circulation underneath the skin’s surface to increase the health and vitality of your skin once your microneedling process is completed.

Microneedling with Dermafrac involves the use of a vacuum device that contains 180 microneedles. When the hand-piece is applied to the skin, the needles penetrate the dermal layers at a precise depth based on the amount of correction needed. Suction is also incorporated into the treatment, pulling the skin taut as the needles are delivered for greater comfort and a more effective procedure overall. No topical anaesthetic is required before the therapy and patients find the session to be a relatively positive experience. The procedure usually takes less than one hour to complete, and there is no downtime afterward.


Results from microneedling appear gradually as the body’s processes go to work stimulating cell renewal and collagen production. However, you will likely see some preliminary improvement as soon as your treatment is over which will continue. To produce the most significant outcome with Dermapen 4 or Dermafrac, we recommend a series of six microneedling treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart. Once full results are achieved, an occasional touch-up treatment will help you maintain your radiant glow over the long term.

Microneedling is an efficient way to rejuvenate the complexion with fewer risks than laser devices. This procedure is quick and relatively painless while offering dramatic, long-lasting results.
