Dermapen Microneedling Treatment
This fractional microneedling treatment uses a powered, disposable needle tip to precisely induce collagen production. It allows penetration of specific serums, including your own natural serum, to give a more youthful appearance.
What is it?
The Dermapen device is a sophisticated method of needling technology. It has a multi-speed motor and adjustable needle depths to provide safe, individualized treatments for all skin types. It can be used as a treatment on its own, but is usually used in combination with other skin care treatments. One of the most important aspects of treatment is its ability to act as a dermal infusion device with serums.
How does it work?
Fine, vibrating needles pierce the skin at a predetermined speed and depth which are adjusted for different treatment areas. The mild damage to the skin stimulates collagen.
What does it treat?
Fine lines, crow's feet, skin texture, pores, dull skin, scars, and stretch marks improve in 4 to 6 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Together with Selphyl, it can stimulate hair growth.
How is the procedure done?
An anaesthetic cream may be applied for more aggressive treatments. Just before the treatment, a skin specific serum is applied and then several passes with the Dermapen are performed. It may feel a bit scratchy but it is a comfortable treatment. It is an alternate treatment method for injecting Selphyl (platelet-rich plasma using your own natural serum) superficially into the skin. If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), an oral antiviral medication should be taken prior to treatment.
How will I look after the treatment?
You may just have some pinkness for a few hours after the treatment but if you had an aggressive treatment for lines or scars, you may have pinprick bleeding or red marks under the skin for a few days and some itchiness or tenderness. Make-up can be applied. You can return to normal activities but you should use sun protection.
Can the Dermapen treatment be used with other procedures?
Definitely! It may be combined with several treatments including facials, SilkPeel microdermabrasion, chemical peels, LED light, Selphyl, IPL, lasers, and Thermage.
