This is a motorised meso machine with an automated micro needling system. It vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin.
The treatment “traumatises the skin in order to heal it” and works by micro-wounding the skin so as to stimulate it into producing extra collagen and elastin.
Each and every session uses a sterile device with hundreds of strategically placed micro-needles attached to it. The beauty of this treatment is, that the length of the needles can range from 0.5mm to 2mm in length depending on areas of the face that are being treated.
The Dermapen’s automatic vibrating function increases the effectiveness of treatment by increasing absorption of products. During a session, an active topical serum will be applied since absorption rates increase to up to 80% after the procedure has been carried out
To lessen the pain, a topical anaesthetic is applied to the area to be treated 30 minutes before treatment commences, so the most you will feel during a session is the odd, mildly uncomfortable stinging sensation as the device is passed over your skin.
Dermapen is suitable for all types of skin.
- Acne Scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Dermapen treatments are suitable for maintaining a youthful looking skin as the procedure restores radiance and visibly improves skin elasticity and bounce, so it’s suitable to incorporate into your general skin care regime, even if you don’t have any specific skin issues that need tackling.
As for results, you can expect to see a visible improvement after a course of six sessions, (7-14 days apart) with some clients reporting a difference in their skin tone after just two or three sessions.
