Dermapen is a skin needling device that utilizes 12 surgical grade needles that deliver effortless and effective skin needling. As the dermapen is gently guided over the skin, microscopic puncture channels are lightly stamped into the skin’s matrix stimulating an inflammatory, or wound healing response. This promotes intense renewal, repair, and rejuvenation. Dermapen directly targets three major cell types (keratinocytes, melanocytes and fibroblasts) and promotes scarless wound healing via a controlled wound healing response.
Dermapen uses tiny needles to create micro channels in the skin. This process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin, two of the most important substances in maintaining plump, youthful and glowing skin. Dermapen is minimally invasive, redness only lasts a day or two. There is no downtime with this procedure. It takes about 20 minutes for one treatment. Treatments should be done every 4-6 weeks, up to six treatment depending on the results you are looking to achieve. Dermapen stimulates your body to make more collagen in areas where you need it most. It improves fine lines, freckles, sun spots, scars, burns, pitted and non pitted acne, stretch marks, and large pores. Dermapen procedures are non-thermal and non-ablative. Treatment may be performed on all skin tones reducing any risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or fibrotic scar formation.
Patients should avoid the following for 2 days post procedure:
- Direct ultra violet exposure
- Other clinical treatments
- Excessive hot showers or saunas
- Spray tanning
- Swimming in chlorinated pools or the ocean
