DermaPen micro-needling device delivers collagen induction therapy via fractional delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis. These micro-injuries to the skin encourage the power of the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Micro-needling treatments are typically performed in a series of 4 to 6 treatments over the course of 2 to 6 months. Treatment on the face is the primary location, but skin needling can successfully be used in any area of the body.
The DermaPen® is an automated skin-needling device. This procedure is also called micro-needling. Although not as quickly or definitively effective as lasers, this simple mechanical device based on fine needle penetration can also deliver some of the same benefits of lasers at an affordable price. DermaPen offers a solution for skin conditions that you might seek treatment for: wrinkles and fine lines, acne scarring, stretch marks, wound healing stimulation, skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation. A DermaPen treatment can complement other treatment options like chemical peels, IPL, microdermabrasion and laser skin tightening.
How does skin-needling work?
The premise is simple – create a small wound and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, the DermaPen can offer skin rejuvenation levels from the simple enhancement of product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars and wrinkles.
What can the DermaPen be used for?
DermaPen allows the physician to quickly treat specific skin areas – large or small – to achieve a number of goals such as:
- Improve Skin Texture / Tone
