Skin Rejuvenation by Dermapen. Advanced Skin Innovations
What is the Dermapen?
Dermapen is a type of Micro-needling which is an effective form of rejuvenation, tackling scarring, such as acne scars or stretch marks, dark spots and freckles caused by the sun, as well as skin laxity, wrinkles, and large pores.
How does the treatment feel?
One of the Dermapen benefits is the increased comfort compared to older methods of micro needling, and so you should feel only minimal discomfort. If you are worried about any pain, just ask your clinician and she will be able to advise you on the best way to manage it.
How is treatment carried out?
The Dermapen is passed over the area to be treated, and inserts tiny needles into the skin, leaving minute puncture wounds. These tiny punctures trigger the body’s wound healing response and encourage the body to renew the skin cells in that area. While the body repairs the skin, it increases the production of collagen and elastin, immediately plumping the area, and causing a diminishment to wrinkles. As the body repairs the skin you will also see scarring, dark marks and sun damage decreasing.
Am I suitable for treatment?
Micro-needling is suitable for all skin types and specifically for:
- Sun damage
- Enlarged Pores
- Stretch marks
Micro-needling is also effective for alopecia and general hair regeneration. The process works in much the same way; as the wound healing response takes place, it stimulates blood circulation and increases nutrients reaching the hair follicles, this combined with the stimulation of proteins in the area can result in new hair growth.
Are there any side effects?
With the Dermapen no surgery or recovery time is required and in just a few short treatments you will see remarkable results, not only will the increased elastin and collagen plump up your face, but old scars and marks will fade away too.
You may experience temporary redness and swelling in the area that was treated, this will go down after a few hours, or maximally a few days.
How many treatments are necessary?
It is recommended on average to receive 3-6 sessions with the Dermapen, for a more personal estimate, just ask your clinician at your initial consultation.
Prior to treatment, a consultation is conducted in which a medical history is taken to confirm suitability for treatment. This is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. Before treatment commences you must provide written consent and a small test patch will be carried out.
How long does each treatment take?
Treatment time varies depending on the size of the treatment area.
