What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a new skin rejuvenation treatment for facial tightening, stretch marks, scarring and wrinkle reduction. It can also be used successfully to treat acne scars, for wound healing, alopecia, and can minimise the skin’s pore size. Dermapen works similarly to fraxel and CO2 laser therapy by prompting Collagen induction and elastin production.
How does it work?
The Dermapen uses multiple tiny needles that vertically pierce the dermis and epidermis of the skin, triggering an immune response. The Dermapen harnesses the body’s natural ability to regrow collagen (which diminishes as we age) and stimulates a tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The skin can quickly heal with almost zero downtime and the vibrating function of the Dermapen reduces pain and discomfort whilst increasing effectiveness.
What can I expect from the treatment?
You will experience mild discomfort and a small amount of bleeding from the tiny puncture sites. Results may vary depending on the individual response, the area treated, and the type of result you are looking for. Some treatments require 6 visits at 2-6 week intervals to achieve your goals. You can resume your normal activities immediately, but may require mineral makeup to cover tiny marks for a day or two.
Why choose Dermapen over Skin Needling?
Dermapen is a medical procedure using needles that penetrate deeper into the skin for better results. Unlike skin needling, there is little bleeding or pain associated with the treatment. Each treatment is with new disposable needles and the small needles are able to penetrate even deep scar tissue.
