Every day, a potential customer needs to know which device to buy or "which pen is the best?" "can you recommend a good device for scarring," etc.

The answer is - they all are! This is due to the fact that all of our devices are micro-needle pens. So what you really need to focus on is the depth of needle you use and your overall skincare routine. If you're not sure what needle depth you should use, we've shared a depth chart for you to look at here.

Below, a Dr. There is a list of features that customers should consider before purchasing a Pen device.


Factoring in your budget will make a big difference when it comes to choosing the right item for you. If you really want to get your hands on a device but your budget is tight, the E30 is our most affordable starter pen. It also has an attractive rose gold metallic design to compliment the interior of your bathroom or bedroom. Our most expensive pen is the M8, which comes with the fastest motor, the best needles and a built-in rechargeable battery.

Wireless Option

For some customers, the ability to use a device wirelessly is a high priority. If you don't have a comfortable place or a place near the mirror to attach your device, you may want to choose the E30, A6 or M8, which can be used wirelessly. In this way, you will be able to use your device everywhere.

LED Speed Display Screen

The E30, M8 and Hydra Pro offer speed display screens so you can easily see which speed level you are on. This might be helpful for customers who like to ensure they're on a particular level throughout their needling.

Needle Gauge

The thickness of needles, or the "gauge" refers to the inner measurement or opening of the needle pins in each cartridge. A finer needle gauge might be suitable for customers who experience discomfort when needling, as this might assist in decreased trauma and possibly assist with post-needling redness. The A7 and the M8 offer cartridges with the finest needle gauge in the Dr. Pen range. The cartridges in these two devices are also said to cause less drag on the skin.

Motor Speed

As with the needle gauge, motor speed may also help alleviate discomfort while needling. With a fast motor, your device will glide over your skin smoothly and possibly minimise redness post treatment. The motor speed is also believed to cause less drag on the skin during needling. The pens with the fastest motor speeds are the M8 and A7.


Lets be honest, cute packaging matters. Some of us may be more prone to seek out cute cosmetics and devices, so if you feel you fit into that category you might like to take the appearance of your pen into consideration before purchasing. The E30 is a beautiful rose gold and metallic device with a sleek and shiny exterior, perfect for that Instagram shot or even just to compliment your bathroom shelf. Another option could be theE30 which comes in a silky metallic purple and is also one of our most popular devices.

Serum Capsule

The Hydra Pro is the only device with an in-built serum capsule. This means you can fill the capsule up with a serum of your choice and it will release itself through the cartridge whilst you're needling and easily enter those newly created micro-channels. However, keep in mind the Hydra Pro is the only device with a fixed needle depth set at 0.5mm, so you will need to make sure this level is suitable for you and the skincare concerns you wish to target.

After taking in consideration some of these points, you may now feel a little more comfortable when it comes to choosing your device. If you still have reservations, please feel free to contact our customer service team here.
