Dermapen microneedling results – Before & after

Dermapen Results Skin

Treatment gifted
by Kosmetologi Noora Kangasmaa



Microneedling facials have made my skin texture smoother and my skintone more even. Even friends have noticed my skin looking great and, in their words, “glowy”. And for once I actually agree and love my skin. It doesn’t just look great compared to my acne days, but it just looks great.

Going into my series of Dermapen microneedling facials, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Even as someone who’s done facials on clients and knows that they’re usually recommended to take as series, I hadn’t experienced the results myself. But now as the facials are done I am amazed just how big of a difference they have made on my skin.

I’m not wearing any makeup in these photos (excluding lip gloss and clear brow gel).

Dermapen microneedling facials results – Before & after

If you’re not too familiar with the concept of microneedling, I recommend reading my previous post first. This post is dedicated to the results – and may I say – my beautiful skin.

Noora Kangasmaa did the Dermapen treatment four times on me, about every six weeks. I found the facial itself surprisingly enjoyable and felt safe in Noora’s capable hands.

After just four treatments the difference on my skin feels massive. It’s never been this smooth, even or glowy. I have some deeper acne scars on both sides of my jaw and I have noticed those starting to diminish. Touching my jaw was quite surprising one day, when I could physically feel the scars not feeling that bumpy anymore. I also feel like my pores are not that outstanding.

Comparing the before and after photos side to side is not perfectly fair, because my freckles have made their appearance and I have gotten a bit of a tan. And even though I did my best, there’s always some lighting difference. However, I think you can still see the difference.

The photos of just my skin now say a lot. What do you think?

About skincare during the microneedling treatments

Now when it comes to the home care of my skin, I took very good care of my skin during this whole project. And I still do – skincare is sacred to me. After the treatments I used EkoPharma’s vitamin C mask, since vitamin C was recommended. Besides that, I used my trusted skincare warriors, most of which are mentioned in this post.

You can buy the EkoPharma mask from their resellers, one of which being Noora Kangasmaa.

Sun protection is extra important, as your skin peels and is trying to reinvent itself. As we know, sun kind of does the opposite of that and is the main cause of premature aging of the skin. I have been using sun protection every day, but as I noticed still getting a bit of a tan, I have tried to up the amount I’m using.

Microneedling skin results

I am very happy with the microneedling results and my skin.

You know I have always been honest about my skin and showed you the real deal here. Sharing the acne stories was huge and looking back I understand why I got those “you’re brave” comments. Now it feels even better to share my current skin situation.

As someone who’s had acne, it feels great to not have to worry about my skin at all. Obviously I still get the occasional pimple here and there. Hormones, the position of the moon and chocolate can do that. But that’s the short term “problem” that I don’t really anymore consider as a problem. The big picture, the overall condition of my skin has improved. And isn’t long term improvement kind of the point, when you put your hard earned money into something?

I think it is.

I’m giving a massive ‘Charlotta Eve approves’ stamp on this treatment.

A video of the microneedling treatment can be found here.

Using the code ‘Charlotta’, you’ll get your first microneedling treatment for 125€. Normal price is 150€, so quite a nice save. The discount is valid for the time being and I don’t benefit from it. Book your visit here. You’ll also find Noora on timma.

Dear diary,

lately our baby monitor hasn’t caught much crying, yet it keeps catching the birds’ singing. I think I prefer it this way. I used to be so amazed at all the birds I could see at Arabianranta (where we used to live), but this new place in Vantaa beats it with other animals. Yesterday I saw a fox, two times. And on Saturday I saw two foxes. Deer are also an every day thing basically. Rabbits, squirrels – apparently our small natural brook also is the home to at least 8 frogs. I’m still not sure this is the home for us, but I’ve been liking it more and more. (So I guess at least my friends can stop worrying – I don’t hate the whole Vantaa anymore.)

Just being home feels lovely. I just went for two different trips, so for now I’m happy seeing my suitcase empty, on top of my wardrobe. I could just spend the summer at home, on our backyard, watching Eva eat rocks. So far we don’t have much plans so it might just be like that.

Girls trip to Vilnius

My first trip was to Vilnius, Lithuania, with five of my girl friends and it was so lovely. I didn’t mind the rain. It was so relaxing, worrying only about me. And I didn’t really – worry I mean. Drinking my coffee in actual peace each morning and having the best company around me (one who didn’t require diaper change or me feeding them) was simply the best. I also didn’t mind wine Charlotta, who might have taken some dance steps walking home from the restaurants.

And yes obviously, coming back home to my dear family was also lovely after getting to miss them a bit. (If you never go away you don’t have time for missing.) Besides, they were also living their best life here without me, not a single problem. I’m so lucky to be an equal parent, not the number 1 (even though Risto keeps saying that mom is the number 1).

Family trip to Cape Verde

After Vilnius I was at home for a few days, then we went to Africa! It sounds more exciting than it is, I promise you. Cape Verde was beautiful yes, but 5/5 of us caught covid. Me being first in high fever. Oh well, the joys of starting daycare (and catching all them flus). I wasn’t prepared to spend the holiday basically under blankets at the hotel room, though. But focusing on the good stuff, it was nice to spend time with Risto’s mom and niece, seeing some pretty trees and enjoying the beach, although for only short amount of time. Eva also loved the kids’ pool (the one day she got to experience it). The time difference also made it so that at home we got to sleep late for three days. Those were high luxury, let me tell you (too bad we also needed them for our jet lag so the enjoyment was also just a necessity). We’re back to waking up at six now.

I’m focusing on enjoying this moment and the upcoming summer, because life might look quite different next fall. If all goes well, I start studying. I’m realizing that all the days spent at home with Eva are gone quicker than I realize. You know, those days that seemed never ending. They were quite lovely too. As tiring as it is as a parent to constantly have someone’s back, I’ll never get tired of my daughter’s smile. I’m so lucky to have her. And I’m so lucky to have friends who I can travel with or just drink coffee on the floor. And to have a soulmate. Ah, I guess now that I’m writing, all the cliches are coming to me (because they are true, as my sister would say).

So all in all I guess the sun is shining, life feels like it has adventures for me again, and I’m having a good day.
And if we’re being totally honest here, I might have been having a little writer’s block. It’s been a while. And I just wanted to chat. Someone wise once told me to not worry too much and just start doing. Just start somewhere.

No title.

Just some words and feelings on digital paper. Light blue eyeliner and blue mascara. Dear diary, a horsefly bit me in the leg today on my run and I didn’t even notice. Instead I noticed the comics on the underpass and flowers blooming in the forest.

I guess I didn’t even realize it, but I was feeling a little worn out and grey. Worried and guilty for needing a little time, for putting Eva at daycare. Angry and sad for moving to such a different neighborhood. And tired, just tired.

This, a turn suddenly for the better, and not the least in my mind,

is very welcome. Thank you life.
