Dr Anil has dedicated his practice to passionately treating clients who suffer from the devastating effects of acne and in some cases its subsequent scarring.
Dermapen® is a highly advanced skin rejuvenation therapy system, treatment available at Dr Anil’s clinic.
Dermapen®, a highly advanced skin rejuvenation therapy system, is now available. This is a pen-like device with 11 fine, 33-gauge needles vertically inserted into the skin at such a rapid pace that the client experiences little pain or discomfort.
The Dermapen’s multiple, vibrating needles pierce the skin several hundred times per minute to enhance rejuvenation and collagen stimulation and is far safer than other methods. Because the Dermapen® is fully adjustable, it is easier to treat delicate areas around the nose and eyes. The treatment also helps to minimize pore size and it can be combined with platelet rich plasma (PRP) to stimulate collagen production and speed healing.
This treatment is used to help patients with all skin types and is a corrective and preventative therapy to treat fine lines and wrinkles, manage acne scars or other injury scars, improve skin texture and colour from melasma patches, reduce stretch mark/cellulite appearance and stimulate new collagen growth. Skin creams can also be absorbed more effectively and seep deeper into the skin after Dermapen treatment.
As the Dermapen stamps over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures in the skin. This controlled damage stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Thus, the skin is tricked into repairing itself. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process. You encourage your skin to continue healing through this micro-needling process.
The process of micro-needling skin remodeling can go on for months after each Dermapen treatment. Results can be seen within a week.Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days, so with a little micro-needling stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast
Dermapen skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. This is a considerable advantage that skin needling has over lasers and chemical peels.
The procedure normally takes 30-45 minutes depending on the required treatment and site. A topical aesthetic is applied to your skin prior to treatment. The DermaPen is then moved over your skin to puncture the upper layer of the skin and create tiny punctures. These microscopic wounds stimulate new collagen deposition which can last for up to a year. The wounds close within an hour.
Visible results are seen after just 6-8 weeks following procedure and improve further over time. A course of 4-6 DermaPen sessions is recommended to achieve optimum results. However skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment.
DermaPen can be used for all areas just as the needle roller but can also be used for tight areas. Rollers are dependent on hand pressure and the depth may vary, whereas the Dermapen depth of penetration is set precisely with an electronic dial. There can also be lateral trauma to the skin when the needles on a roller pull out of the skin as the wheel turns. Dermapen which relies only on vertical needle action and there is no risk of lateral trauma.
The skin will be red in appearance, similar way to a sunburn and will also be tight.This will settle down greatly after a few hours and within 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.
Yes,very safe. Allergic reactions and side-effects are very unlikely to occur. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (approx. 24hrs), rapid healing and requires only simple after-care.
Although DermaPen will induce collagen synthesis on its own, skin improvements are significantly enhanced by combining skin needling with the topical application of Mesotherapy (vitamins, anti-oxidants, hyaluronic acid) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which uses your body’s own growth factors to increase collagen, elastin and overall skin health.

Restore youthful looks and target wrinkles with Dr. Anil. Anti-wrinkle injections use a purified protein that works by relaxing overactive, wrinkle-causing muscles.
Anti-wrinkle injections use a purified protein that works by relaxing overactive, wrinkle-causing muscles. With less movement, the skin surface smoothes out. If the wrinkles have been there a long time (years) and are very deep, it may take time for them to smooth out. Newer wrinkles may look smoother within days after being treated. In addition, the treatment prevents the wrinkles from getting deeper, by relaxing the muscles and preventing the skin from getting creased more deeply.
Anti-wrinkle injections are also an effective treatment for migranes and sweating. Please get in touch to learn more.
Juvederm is a popular treatment for softening facial wrinkles or lines and can add more volume to any area of your face, such as your cheeks or lips. Juvederm is a sterile dermal filler gel that’s injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles or scars, or anywhere on the face that need to be plumped or filled. The active ingredient is hyaluronic acid
Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. It has one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market and is not only boosting and hydrating to the skin, but it also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.
The product remains in the skin for around 28 days and during this time it encourages the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin
Thread lifts tighten your skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into the face and then pull the skin up by tightening the thread. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat the ageing process in another way: by provoking the body’s natural “healing response” by causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to the treated areas. This is important because of the vital role collagen plays in the ageing process. The thread lift procedure rejuvenates, regenerates and lifts your skin.
Needles are inserted to the subcutaneous or SMAS layer of the skin, and when the needle is taken out, the dissolvable threads remain in the skin.
The end result is firmer, tighter and smoother skin with less winkles.
Anti-ageing Mesotherapy or Mesolift is a technique used for skin rejuvenation which consists of multiple injections of a cocktail of vitamins, anti-oxidants, amino-acids and Hyaluronic acid carried out in the superficial dermis (the middle layer of the skin) with a very fine needle.
This stimulates collagen, minimizes fine lines and wrinkles and creates skin radiance leaving it with a glowing complexion. The purpose is to heal and reverse skin ageing and damage. The concept is that it is better to deliver medications directly to the area being treated than to ingest them through a tablet.
When small amounts of medications are injected into the skin, the blood flow automatically increases to the treated area, bringing in with it increased nutrition and oxygen, this improving lymphatic drainage and removing toxins in the skin.
