Cosmetic Skin Treatments

Dermapen™

Dermapen Cosmetic Skin Treatments

What is Dermapen?

The Dermapen is a revolutionary and most advanced micro-needling device, which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin.

How does micro-needling work?

The Dermapen stimulates collagen induction by harnessing the body’s ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 vertical micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.

Treatment summary

What can Dermapen treat?

The Dermapen can visibly improve the appearance of:

Dermapen™ for fine lines and wrinkles
The Dermapen promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin is by micro-needling with the Dermapen’s™ vertical stamping method. This new stimulation can be done quickly and easily while keeping the epidermis intact and down-time to a minimum.
Dermapen™ for Acne Scars
The Dermapen treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The Dermapen keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
Dermapen™ for Surgical Scars
The challenge of a surgical scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. The Dermapen’s unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.
Dermapen™ for Stretch Marks
Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims. The use of the Dermapen™ uses the bodies’ natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Dermapen™ does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The Dermapen™ device allows for appropriate treatment needle depth to activate the cascade of fibroblast and growth hormone to generate more skin, collagen and elastin for smooth and healthy coloured skin. The skin of the epidermis effectively thickens and becomes noticeably smoother therefore evening stretch marks is the result.

FAQ

Dermapen microneedling treatment doesn’t hurt. Before treatment toppical anaestetic will be applied, which will cause numbing sensation and will eliminate pains during the process. During the treatment it is possible to experience minor pin-point bleeding, but not ongoing.

Visibly rejuvenated skin can generally be seen after just 6-8 days following a procedure, with results further improving over time. A course of Dermapen™ sessions is usually recommended to achieve optimal results; however, improvement is usually noticeable after just one treatment.

Injections are not a part of a Dermapen™ treatment, so allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means that there is virtually no downtime and the healing process is quick. Aftercare is also very simple and can be fully administered at home.

Side effects experienced with Dermapen™ will usually subside within 48 hours. They include erythema, stinging, itching and tightness of the skin.

Yes absolutely normal. Some people just get red and dry skin, others get quite flaky dry and red skin, others tend to break out in lots of lumps like pimples but they go away in 3 days. So yes, it is normal and is just the body purging itself of toxins.

Day 1: Erythema and redness, severity of which will depend upon the aggressiveness of the performed treatment.
Day 2: Red or pink hue similar to moderate sunburn may persist. There may be some noticeable swelling on the second day.
Day 3: Skin may still retain a pink hue, or return to normal colour. Swelling subsides.

Not IPL rejuvenation. The client would get scar tissue from a double wound healing response. They could do pigment, but really why would they need to do this when the Dermapen™ provides the versatility? 4 week intervals if they absolutely had to.

6-8 weeks, a course of 4-8 on average. As Dermapen™ results are essentially permanent.

Clients who have had Botox treatments should ideally wait 2 weeks either side of having Dermapen™ treatment.

Keloid or raised scarring; history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts or any raised lesions on targeted area. Absolute contraindications include; scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; Rosacea and blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immuno-suppression; scars less than 6 months old; and facial fillers in the past 6 months.

Skin needling is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women due to a number of minor reasons. The needles produce micro-injuries, which trigger the natural wound healing response. This wound healing and production of new collagen requires vitamins and nutrients, which would otherwise be needed for the baby, so is suggested to not be used during pregnancy.
