WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAPEN?
The Dermapen is an automated-micro needling therapy system that vertically pierces the skin to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin with minimal epidermal damage. This enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the client because there is much less epidermal damage. The automatic, high speed vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating multiple insertions, quickly and clinically, dramatically reducing pain and discomfort for the patient. A great treatment for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling. Dermapen is beneficial in the treatment of:
• Skin tightening, natural collagen induction, lifting and rejuvenation
• Healing acne scars and wounds
• Improving wrinkles and fine lines
• Open pore minimisation
• Improving stretch marks
• Treating Alopecia
• Aiding penetration of treatment solutions
Is it safe?
In acne scar treatment, Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Dermapen needle head. The needle only penetrates through the epidermis and does not remove it thus the skin’s natural protective barrier remains intact.
What can I expect?
The procedure is normally completed within 20 minutes for the entire face and neck and up to 60 minutes for the body depending on the size of the problem area. Before the procedure commences a topical anaesthetic or local block is applied to the client’s skin to ensure a virtually painless experience. During the acne treatment, the practitioner gently moves the DermaPen over the client’s skin to create miniscule sub-cutaneous channels.The pierced epidermis rapidly heals in a matter of hours. After the procedure, the treated skin has the appearance of moderate sunburn which improves over the next 24 to 48 hours. Breathable make up can be worn immediately after the treatment. The treatment is therefore not only very effective but also very safe with very few (to no) side effects or complications. There is minimal downtime after this treatment as you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the procedure. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment
