Dermapen is a popular anti-aging treatment designed to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. It can also be used to treat a variety of skin issues, including sagging skin, enlarged pores, loss of volume, blemishes, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and even stretch marks.
The procedure stimulates the production of collagen to transform your appearance, resulting in smoother and more youthful looking skin. Unlike traditional laser treatments, with Dermapen there is little to no downtime and it is minimally invasive.
Depending on the skin problem to be addressed, a thick anesthetic cream may need to be applied to your face prior to starting the treatment. The cream is necessary to numb the area, and will be left on for between 15-40 minutes. We then use what resembles a pen with tiny, ultra fine needles on the end of it, which is rolled over the skin to create micro punctures. When the skin starts to repair itself, this triggers the formation of new elastin and collagen. It’s skin needling, but taken to a whole new level to deliver plumper, smoother and more radiant looking skin.
The number of treatments required will depend on what Dermapen is treating. For example, for skin rejuvenation, 4-6 treatments are advised to help achieve the best possible results. Treating stretch marks will usually require between 4-8 treatments. After Dermapen treatment, your skin may appear red and irritated – much like sunburn – with possibly some mild swelling and tightness. However, these are all normal side effects and your skin should heal after a few days. learn more
