Award winning aesthetic treatments

Staying abreast of the latest technologies, Dr Cobus at Wellnessthetics is excited to introduce the Dermapen.

The treatment involves the combination of needling, assisting vitamin and minerals into the skin. The Dermapen, in essence, does it all, and after being awarded the “Best Aesthetic Device 2011.”

The Dermapen offers an automated needling motion to minimise pain while increasing treatment accuracy and providing predictable results.

We at Wellnessthetics, use it to:

  • Tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improve stretch marks

  • Reduce keloid and acne scars

How it works?

The secret of the Dermapen lies in its 11 needles that vertically stamp the epidermis in a vibrating motion.
It penetrates all types of skin and can be easily moved around all the delicate contours and features of your face and body.
This means both accurate and predictable results.

The Dermapen comes standard with a spring-loaded disposable needle tip that gives Dr Cobus more control than with alternatives This way there is no bending or breaking of the needle, reducing the risk of bleeding or bruising.

What is the treatment like?

  • First, we will clean and exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells

  • Then Dr Cobus spread anaesthetic ointment on the area to be treated

  • Next step is applying the active ingredients (the same ones that will penetrate your skin via the Dermapen needles)

  • Step 4 will have Dr Cobus select the right needle for the area you want to be treated and the needling will begin using the Dermapen handpiece.

  • Step 5, the treatment is nearly over, your skin will be moisturised and soothed

Finally, you will receive some instructions for post-treatment care, such as avoiding the sun and homecare.


The Dermapen offers vertical incision so much of the treatment risk is eliminated.
No more worry about breakages, or skin damage and especially no more stress over even absorption.
This means effective results with minimal downtime.

The result of assisting penetration of vitamins, minerals and amino acids via the Dermapen is a refreshed and nourished skin, active in collagen and elastin production.

Ultimately this leaves a longer lasting result, as the stimulated collagen and elastin production will continue to improve skin quality long after the treatment protocol.

For best scar treatment results it is best to combine treatments, in most cases, Dr Cobus will prescribe Chemical Peeling with Dermapen treatments.

At Wellnessthetics you will be treated as an individual and a personalised treatment plan will be put together for your desired outcomes, specific skin needs and budget.
