How Dermapen Micro-needling Works
In this blog, we take a look at how dermapen micro-needling works, ask who is suitable for the procedure, and answer frequently asked questions about the treatment.
Dermapen, commonly know as the “Microneedling Pen” is a medical specialty that involves injecting microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins directly in to the middle layer of skin leaving the skin with an immediate glow.
The dermapen micro-needling treatment is able to achieve skin which is tighter, brighter and refreshed. Dermapen is now favoured by cosmetic experts around the world, after having proved its efficiency and effectiveness, as well as flexibility in how it is used.
Micro Needling is derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy. During the treatment the pen gently glides over the skin, tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin.
Disposable needles are used for each treatment to eliminate the risk of contamination and the the adjustable needle depths allow for treatment to be tailored to the specific needs of the individual. This portable device perfectly corrects face and body beauty imperfections. Vertical operation of 12 microneedles, automatically driven strictly to the specified depth, stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis and multiplies effect of active components of beauty care products allowing significantly improve condition and appearance of skin and is ideal for younger patients who want to prevent wrinkles all together.
Benefits of Dermapen Treatments
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age, the natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. The Dermapen treatment promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy and this is the most effective way to stimulate new skin safely and effectively.
Acne and Surgical Scars
This treatment improves the appearance of atrophic acne scars and surgical scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen help to naturally stimulate new collagen production in the area of the scar. The physical nature of skin needling breaks up fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue which results in a smoother and more even skin surface all while slowing the onset of wrinkles. Also, there is the added benefit of new capillary growth which improves the blood supply to the area, providing a healthy foundation for the new skin.
Micro needling treatments not only target specific imperfections but also provide an overall rejuvenation of the skin. The needling process improves micro-circulation in conjunction with collagen and elastin formation beneath the skin to thicken the dermis, reducing wrinkles. You will notice improved skin texture, more even skin tone and an overall brightness to your skin. Undergoing a series of Micro needling treatments will not only provide visible results to the entire appearance of your skin, but it will slow down the signs of aging.
Derma pen treatment will result in a more refined appearance of the pores. The Micro Needling treatments stimulate collagen and elastin which results in firming of the skin thereby reducing the appearance of large pores.
Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish, but will not disappear completely. The Dermapen treatment offers a progressive and natural solution to stretch marks. The treatment stimulates healthy collagen and elastin production in the deeper skin layer to repair the damaged areas with the release of growth factors and stimulation of fibroblasts. Everyone will experience improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks with the Dermapen, but results are individual and depend on the severity, age and extent of the stretch marks. Early red stretch marks will show the most improvement.
