Dermapen Micro-Needle Skin Therapy is a multi-function treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. This treatment is most commonly used to combat scarring, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin, eye-bags and sun damage and age spots your skin is infused with cocktail of collagen & Vitamin serum which helps improve the appearance of firmness, smoothness & facial elasticity, and makes it 3000% more effective in 1 treatment session.
This micro-needling treatment is based on the natural rejuvenating power of the skin. Shortly after any injury to the human skin, old and damaged skin tissue dissolves and is replaced by new cells. The gentle, controlled needling method used in the Dermapen Micro-Needle skin therapy induces this organic self-repair mechanism on a microcosmic scale. The thin needles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen. This method is extremely effective and is hugely popular with clients who prefer a rejuvenation method involving significantly less epidermal damage than alternative treatments.
What is DermaPen?
DermaPen is a skin micro-needling treatment with minimum downtime which promotes scarless healing and natural collagen production in the skin to improve the appearance of scars, acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmentation and rejuvenate the skin.
Dermapen uses the latest technology to improve the look of wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, stretch marks and more. While all microneedling devices have been designed to boost the collagen and elastin production in the skin by stimulating a healing response, the outcome you’ll achieve will greatly differ depending on the device and technique used.
Dermapen is a micro-needling facial that is great for reducing signs of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and improvement of the complexion of the skin. Micro-needling also stimulates collagen through the skin which causes anti-ageing results such as tightening, plumping and improvement of the skin appearance. The Dermapen works by providing a fast response through the segmented delivery of microneedles to the skin. This causes micro-injuries to the outer and inner layers of the skin. As a result, the body’s natural healing response is triggered which causes the skin to rejuvenate itself.
What are the benefits of a dermapen?
A dermapen is an effective way to remove acne scarring and imperfections on the skin, the biggest benefit is the improvement in overall skin tone and texture that comes about after the treatment, along with the minimised appearance of pores in the skin, reduced superficial wrinkles and reduced appearance of stretch marks.
How does the dermapen work?
A dermapen works through a method of puncturing the skin through a spring-loaded automated function, the dermapen uses microneedles to move up and down across the skin, puncturing small holes as it moves. The mechanism inside the dermapen causes the stimulation of healthy collagen and the small punctures in the skin to allow for nutrients to be absorbed into the deep layers of the skin. The dermapen process is fast and therefore doesn’t damage the dermal layers of the skin.
Is dermapen the same as microneedling?
Dermapen is a microneedling tool.
Instead of the traditional microneedling roller which is essentially a wheel covered in microneedles, a dermapen is a handheld device designed to overcome all the issues of a traditional derma roller.
The dermapen offers adjustable depth so the treatment isn’t too deep in sensitive areas along with being fitted with surgical grade disposable needles for a patient’s safety.
Does the dermapen hurt?
You may experience minor discomfort during the skin needling treatment but a numbing cream can be applied beforehand to reduce this. Depending on the aggressiveness of treatment, you may experience pinpoint bleeding during the treatment but not ongoing.
You may find temporary redness of the skin for a couple of hours or a day depending on the treatment type. This redness often heals up quickly, however, if you experience any prolonged discomfort it’s advised to get in touch with the surgery that undertook your treatment.
WHAT IS DERMAPEN USED TO TREAT?
FINE LINES AND WRINKLES.
Dermapen creates micro-injuries to our skin which triggers our body’s natural healing response. When collagen and elastin are stimulated through this healing response our skin will look refreshed and plumped, which will reduce the appearance of any fine lines and wrinkles.
Our therapists can target fine lines and wrinkles by repeating the Dermapen treatment in specific concerned areas, once the course has finished the skin will appear plump, healthy and smooth.
SCARRING (ACNE SCARRING).
In terms of scarring Dermapen uses the same principle as reducing fine lines and wrinkles. By triggering the body’s healing response new cells are made and stimulated, meaning scarring, especially pitted acne scarring skin is rejuvenated and encouraged to heal with a smoother more subtle appearance.
It is important to note that commitment and a course of sessions is necessary for scarring, our therapists can provide bespoke scarring plans to give you the best results for your scarring concerns.
LARGE PORES AND SKIN TEXTURE.
Enlarged pores can be a concern of many of our clients, micro-needling is a great treatment to reduce overall pore size. As the microthin needles penetrate the skin this activates the production of healing with results in a smooth and tightened skin appearance, reducing any signs of enlarged pores.
