This is a multi-function skin therapy that uses multiple thin needles to gently penetrate the skin to leave it looking firmer, smoother and younger. This treatment is most commonly used to combat scarring, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin, eye-bags and sun damage and age spots.
The gentle, controlled needling method used in the Dermapen Micro-Needle Skin Therapy induces this organic self-repair mechanism on a microcosmic scale. The thin needles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen.
A topical numbing cream is applied to the area before carrying out Dermapen treatments to ensure any pain is minimised. Variable treatment intensities allow us to further control the comfort of the treatment.
You will see a plumping effect almost immediately, however the natural healing process takes time, so it can take up to six weeks before you see significant results – although some improvements can be seen much sooner. The process will continue over the following months and several treatments are usually required.
After your treatment, your skin will appear red and flushed; a normal sign that the treatment is working and will subside within a few days. SPF 30 should be worn daily following on from the treatment for at least two weeks. An ongoing effective daily skincare regime is crucial to help promote and achieve optimum results.
This method is extremely effective and is hugely popular with clients who prefer a rejuvenation method involving significantly less epidermal damage than alternative treatments. The Dermapen™’s needles enter the skin at a 90 degree angle, eliminating the pain and epidermal tearing associated with dermal rollers and so is more comfortable than treatments involving dermal rollers.
