WHAT IS DERMAPEN?

 

 

 

Dermapen® is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, Dermapen is safe on any skin type, has short treatment time and minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime. Dermapen: a revolutionary breakthrough for beautiful skin. The Dermapen® is an automated micro-needling device, with a disposable tip cartridge, that uses 11 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. The stamping action of the Dermapen’s vertical tip creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes. Dermapen is safe and as effective as a fractional laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) with a significantly shorter recovery period.

 Q: Is there any pain with the Dermapen treatment?

 

Depending on the area being treated and the aggressiveness of treatment, there can be some slight discomfort during the procedure. A topical anaesthetic can be applied 15 – 20 minutes prior and is removed before the Dermapen treatment begins to help alleviate discomfort.

 

 

Q: What are the immediate after-effects of the Dermapen?

 

Redness, or erythema, of the skin, can appear, as well as possible pinpoint bleeding. The severity of erythema depends on how aggressive the treatment was performed and individual skin type. Minimal swelling may occur and be more noticeable on the second day. Dermapen’s post-procedure care will help with redness and swelling.

 

 

Q: How many Dermapen treatments will I need?

 

Benefits of the Dermapen can be seen after just one treatment. It is recommended that 3 – 5 treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, are performed for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed such as acne scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results. Consult with your Dermapen practitioner.
