HOW IT WORKS?
Dermapen offers a variety of effective skin treatments. The device provides unparalleled collagen induction via fractional delivery of micro-needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries harness the body's innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Dermapen is safer and more effective than traditional skin micro needling rollers due to its unique vertical micro needling technology. It has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation.
Dermapen’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allow the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products, generating less pain and downtime for the patient. Dermapen promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
The mechanism of injury is a natural process, which makes Dermapen a holistic approach to skin therapy. Four major phases of physiological wound response help in stimulating new healthy tissue growth. First, an inflammatory response (1-3 days), to the initial injury promotes the chemotaxis response and proliferation of fibroblasts. The body’s platelets also respond to initiate a wound matrix. This response is the early phase of cell migration to remove debris and bacteria and stimulate the next proliferative phase. During the second phase (3-5 days), the new fibroblasts, monocytes, keratinocytes of the first phase continue to proliferate and multiply. New collagen will be laid down and deposited with new tissue formation. Next a fibrotic response (5-20 days), of growth factors are released and fibroblasts release collagen. Finally, the maturation stage of new healthy skin takes place from day 28 where the skin’s vascular matrix matures, causing skin to tighten.
Moreover, because the process never involves heat or thermal energy, doesn’t use harsh chemicals or cause unnecessary trauma, skin heals quickly, requiring virtually no downtime.
WHAT IT WILL HELP WITH?
ACNE SCARRING - 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 physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen® keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
SURGICAL & BURN 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. Scar therapy has been historically limited. 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.
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 steps to generate more skin, collagen and elastin for smooth and healthy colored skin. The skin of the epidermis effectively thickens and noticeable smoother and evening of stretch marks is the result.
The medical professional can consult you on a prescribed treatment. Most patients see a noticeable difference in just one treatment however 3-6 treatments may be necessary.
AGEING - 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.
After treatment, patients commonly describe their skin as looking rested, radiant, glowing and firmer. Dermapen can be used as a supplement, or an alternative, to many anti-aging regimes, including botox, laser rejuvenation, peels, antioxidants and topical creams.
Facial mesotherapy is a safe, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures in which complexion-brightening vitamins are delivered four to six millimetres below the epidermis into the mesoderm of the skin with a special device to improve skin's texture and tone. The process delivers vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the skin to nourish and rejuvenate, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism.
Why Do I need more than one treatment?
Skin conditions are different as well as the age of each patient. 2-3 aggressive Dermapen treatments will provide a noticeable difference, however 5-6 Dermapen treatments will show the most dramatic results.
What Are The Risks?
There is a very small chance of bruising which can easily be covered.
Is the result immediate?
No. Although, you will notice some improvement of your skin a few days after first treatment, you will have to have at least three treatments every 6 weeks to see significant difference. Although the result is long lasting maintenance treatments are necessary once every six month.
Is the treatment painful?
There is some slight discomfort but the clinician will apply a topical aesthetic to minimize the discomfort.
Contraindications for DERMAPEN:
Allergy, uncontrolled diabetes, Pregnancy and breast-feeding, inflammation of the skin, bad skin injections, usage of anticoagulants, active herpes, cancer.
