Microneedling using Dermapen
Microneedling is one of the most effective methods of skin rejuvenation available today. The procedure uses a device that delivers multiple needle punctures into the skin at one time, stimulating the body’s own healing response and promoting collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. Signs of aging, shallow scarring and other skin problems disappear over time, leaving you with a naturally refreshed, more youthful appearance. Damage to surrounding tissue and skin is minimal, offering excellent, long-lasting results with less downtime than other types of skin rejuvenation procedures.
What is the Dermapen?
The Dermapen is a relatively new skin needling device that uses an innovative spring-loaded tip and sterile needle head to administer puncture marks into the skin. The method offers greater control and safety than other types of microneedling procedures. The device works on all skin types, including darker skin tones, and can treat a host of skin concerns.
What does it treat?
Dermapen microneedling treatments can address a number of different skin issues, including:
- Uneven skin texture and enlarged pores
- Shallow scarring, including acne and surgical scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin that has lost its elasticity and firmness
- Stretch marks
What is the procedure like?
A microneedling procedure using the Dermapen can take anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. A topical numbing cream is normally applied to the area prior to treatment to ensure a comfortable procedure. A topical product, such as a hyaluronic acid serum may also be applied prior to the procedure. As the needles penetrate the skin, the serum is allowed to work deep beneath the surface, stimulating collagen production and producing even better results. A serum may also be applied after treatment, to soothe treated skin and promote healing of the area.
What kind of results can I expect?
After a microneedling treatment, skin usually appears red and slightly swollen, due to inflammation. These side effects typically resolve within a day or two. Positive results can be seen within two weeks and continue to improve as more collagen is produced by the body. Some patients may need a series of treatment sessions at the beginning to achieve desired results. However, those results may last for many months before a touch-up treatment is required.
