In comparison to dermo-rollers, the Germaine de Capuccini Dermatech pen provides a completely safe and more comfortable treatment. It uses controlled puncture on the skin with the ability to personalise the treatment for each individuals skin type. This not only improves resilts but provides a totally safe treatment whilst minimising discomfort and irritation. Our surgical needles are sterile.
