The Dermapen is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that uses an age-old technique known as micro-needling. This procedure uses a series of needle punctures beneath the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s own wound healing process. The procedure can be performed using topical anesthetic and does not typically require any downtime afterward.
The Dermapen is particularly efficient at turning back the clock on your appearance, by minimizing fine lines and deeper facial wrinkles. The procedure can be focused on a specific area where fine lines have formed. It can also be used on larger areas for reducing hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, uneven skin texture or shallow scarring.
Dermapen for Anti-Aging
Dermapen works as an anti-aging treatment in two important ways:
Micro-needling stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. Collagen is the substance found in the underlying skin structure, giving the skin its firm, smooth look. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in thinner, sagging skin and the appearance of fine lines and facial creases. By stimulating the body’s own collagen production, Dermapen treatments can lead to smoother, firmer skin once again.
Dermapen treatments also provide opportunity for more efficient penetration of skin products. Serums formulated specifically for anti-aging purposes can easily get underneath the skin’s surface, where they will provide the most good. By combining the micro-needling with topical applications of specialized formulations, you can see even more dramatic results from your Dermapen procedure.
Benefits all Skin Types
While laser treatments are also recommended for anti-aging procedures, the laser can create hyperpigmentation problems for patients with darker or ethnic skin tones. Dermapen can be safely used on all skin type, providing anti-aging benefits for a wider range of patients than procedures used in the past. Micro-needling affects all skin types the same way and is considered safe and effective for nearly everyone.
How it Works
A series of Dermapen treatments is usually recommended for the best anti-aging results. The number of treatments, as well as the depth of the needles, will depend on the specific skin concerns to be addressed. Most skin issues can be effectively treated within 4-8 treatment sessions using the Dermapen. After results are achieved, occasional touch-up treatments may also be required to maintain the best possible results.
