The DERMApen is a pen shaped electronic device with tiny vibrating needles that puncture the skin at a predetermined depth creating ever so slightly a wound just under the skin. This wound starts a cascade of healing mechanisms in the skin, which stimulate collagen and elastin production, dramatically reducing wrinkles over time after the procedure. The benefits of microneedeling is that the treatment leaves the skin intact and isn’t damaged as in other treatments such as ablative or non ablative laser, yet is as effective as any laser treatment. The skin becomes thicker as collagen and elastin are increased erasing the fine lines and lifting the deeper wrinkles. The results are on going and long lasting.
This treatment is safe for all skin types and skin colors and there is no fear of hyper pigmentation seen in other skin care treatments. The healing period is very short; the next day you might see a slight redness. The discomfort level is nil or almost non-existent. The Dermapen can be used anywhere on the body to encourage regeneration of skin. It is an outstanding treatment for scars!
