Dermapen is a revolutionary microneedling treatment, which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels but without the side effects and downtime.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened lines, wrinkles or scar revision. I use the newest automated Dermapen3 for its predictable performance and safety profile.
There is no tissue destruction with microneedling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
These superficial micro-channels also allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. I employ various topicals depending upon your needs.
Dermapen is ideal for treating:
- Fine lines/ Wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Hair regeneration
- Striae (stretchmarks)
The treatments can be spaced no closer than 6 weeks but continue to improve the skin for 13-18 weeks.
