What is a Derma Pen?
Dermapen is much safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin needling Rollers, because of its unique vertical needling technology. It has a superior effect on collagen and elastic rejuvenation. Active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin.
Dermapen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allows the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products. On the other hand, it reduces pain and patient downtime.
Dermapen can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.
Dermapen promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
How does Microneedling Derma Pen work?
Derma Pens are based on a traditional Chinese acupuncture procedure when very small and thin needles are inserted through your skin to treat a certain pain problem, the only difference is that rather than reducing pain issues Derma Pens improve an appearance of the skin.
The Derma Pen is fitted with a cartridge containing needles that are used to puncture only the top layer of the skin in a designed area of treatment. The punctures open up the top layer of the skin – the dermis, micro injuries caused by the needles encourage the ability of the skin to repair itself. As the skin heals, it produces collagen and elastin to support the process. Depending on the treatment, needles are used to apply pigment into the skin for example in BB Glow or permanent makeup procedures.
The Benefits of Dermapen
The benefits of Dermapen treatments are multiple, and the most effective ones are:
Acne scars & wound healing
Reduces wrinkles & fine lines
Minimizes pore size
Is Dermapen Right for Me?
You would most likely be a suitable candidate for a Dermapen treatment if you have fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, stretch marks, acne, or scars. Those with sensitive skin, keloidal susceptibility, or continuing skin infections should wait until the condition has cleared up before starting the treatment.
What Is a Dermapen Procedure Like?
First, the skin is cleansed to avoid infection and remove impurities on the surface. A topical anesthetic may be applied to prevent discomfort during your Dermapen treatment.
Next, the tool is applied to the skin’s surface, gently making pinpoint pricks. Serums are applied onto the skin to stimulate healing and promote hydration. The whole process can take up to two hours per session.
What to Expect After Dermapen Treatment
One of the many benefits of Dermapen treatment is that patients typically see visible results within a week. Substantial improvement will develop over the next three to four weeks. Recovery time after the procedure is typically 3 to 5 days.
Redness, dryness, and tightness are normally experienced; severity will depend on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Swelling may appear on the second day but should disappear quickly. Most patients describe a sunburnt feeling after treatment.
Following Dermapen therapy, you will be instructed to apply sunscreen and lotions prescribed by your doctor. It’s crucial to stay away from any irritants that contain glycolic acid or retinoids. After the treatment, the use of fragranced lotions and creams is also discouraged.
