The Dermapen is a micro-needling system that uses a disposable tip consisting of 12 micro-needles that penetrate the skin, creating micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production. This encourages the body to repair through the skin’s normal physiological process.
Penetrating deep into the dermis, the DermaPen creates the growth of elastin and collagen using the body’s own natural healing. It treats tone and texture at a very deep level, including wrinkles and acne scars. This leaves smoother, more even, and flawless skin.
Immediately after your Dermapen procedure, you will experience redness, pinpoint bleeding, minimal swelling and you may feel like you have had a mild sunburn. The benefits of one Dermapen procedure will be apparent immediately; however, we recommend 3-6 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.
In a study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, 27 patients received microneedling treatment on one half of their face. After six treatments over the course of six months, 23 showed noticeable improvements on the side of their face that received treatment.
