About Derma FNS
Medically reviewed by The Harley Medical Group Clinical Governance Board, Chaired by Simon Smith (Medical Director & Consultant Surgeon) on 6th March 2020.
Derma FNS (Fractional Needling System), also known as Dermapen, uses a unique electronic mechanism which allows the practitioner to control the intensity to tailor the treatment for the best results. When combined with a highly effective serum and a soothing aftercare cream, the treated area will see significant improvements to the damaged skin.
Derma FNS can significantly:
- Tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin;
- Reduce acne scars & improve wound healing.
- Improve wrinkles and fine lines.
- Minimise pore size.
- Improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
The Derma FNS 'pen' device can be used on any part of the body, however the most popular areas are: forehead; between the eyebrows; nose; around the eyes; cheekbones; cheeks; around the mouth; scar tissue and stretch marks.

Dermapen is a highly effective facial rejuvenation, extensively improving the appearance of tired, dull skin and finely lined skin. It also significantly improves the appearance of stretch marks and scars including chicken pox scars and three types of acne scars (ice pick, box and rolling).
Derma FNS uses a unique method to insert fine needles into the epidermis to encourage collagen production. Unlike other microneedling treatments, the Derma FNS vertically penetrates the skin, which produces less skin damage, but the same effective results as other treatments.
The automatic vibrating function of Derma FNS increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of a solution which contains hyaluronic acid, minerals, vitamins and peptides, applied during the treatment, further increasing collagen and elastin production for improved rejuvenation results.
Due to the vertical insertion of the needles there is reduced discomfort and bleeding than most other forms of microneedling. The design also makes it easy to manoeuvre around all facial contours which means that problem areas which were previously untreatable, such as around the eyes, can now be treated.
