This new and exciting piece of technology for advanced medical skin needling.
The concept of Dermapen is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue such as acne scarring and wrinkles and replaces it with new fresh healthy collagen. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers a whole cascade of events that result in new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin down the line. A great treatment for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.
Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile Dermapen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 20 – 60 minutes for the entire face. This is a great treatment for stretch marks and sagging/crepe skin on the body too. Before the procedure commences a topical anesthetic or local block is applied to the client’s skin to ensure a virtually painless experience. During the treatment, the practitioner gently moves the DermaPen over the client’s skin to create miniscule sub-cutaneous channels. This is perceived by the body as a “wound” which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which is all part of the healing process. This new fresh collagen remodels over time and thus one can expect moderate skin tightening of the treated area down the line. Sagging skin, stretch marks, pores, pigmentation, rosacea and acne scars are all improved upon. Dermapen Skin Needling is a novel way to treat: fine lines and wrinkles around eyes, mouth, cheeks, neck and décolleté. Other areas of the body can also be treated such as the abdomen, back of the hands and arms. All forms of acne scars, most surgical scars including facelift scars, abdominal scars, breast plastic surgery scars, post liposuction scars, orthopedic scars, stretch marks and burn contracture scars can safely be treated. In addition, stretch marks on the breasts and body and loose body skin are also safely treated.
There is minimal downtime after the procedure however the client can expect to be severely red and sensitive for up to 72 hours.
A sealant cream or serum and a SPF is essential for post treatment. To eliminate any side effects and to ensure that the skin heals properly without any complications.
