Dermapen Microneedling – Heal Your Skin

Published on December 16, 2016 by

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that is used as a treatment for a variety of skin conditions to restore visibly healthy and rejuvenated skin. Since it is a minimally invasive procedure that involves negligible discomfort for the patient, microneedling has gained massive popularity among individuals all around the world.

What Is Dermapen Microneedling?

The microneedling procedure is carried out using an automated device known as the Dermapen, which has multiple fine needles that create minuscule punctures within the topmost layer of the skin. This precise vertical piercing of the skin’s surface stimulates the body’s natural repair response in the form of an increased production of elastin and collagen within the tissues. Both elastin and collagen are proteins that are abundantly found within the connective tissues of the skin and are responsible for providing elasticity to and keeping the skin hydrated and younger-looking. Since the Dermapen needles only partially penetrate the superficial surface of the skin, there is negligible damage to the epidermis. The Dermapen microneedling procedure is often performed in conjunction with a topical treatment such as a vitamin-rich serum or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for better and longer-lasting results.

Why You Should Go for Dermapen Microneedling?

• Since the technique triggers the body’s natural healing process and does not involve the use of any synthetically developed products for treating skin imperfections, the results are natural-looking and carry negligible side effects.
• Since the Dermapen is fitted with disposable needles that are discarded after a single use, there are zero chances of contracting any infection.
• Dermapen microneedling is a faster process with shorter and more efficient treatment times as compared to other manual procedures.
• The advanced technology of the Dermapen lets your doctor modify the level of penetration by adjusting the depth of the needle. This ensures that you get the most suitable level of treatment as per the requirements of your specific case.
• Dermapen microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that promotes scarless healing.
• Dermapen also offers multiple speed settings, which can be altered to lower or power up the vibration of the needles for achieving case-specific treatment.
• The compact size of the Dermapen makes it an effective device for treatment of hard-to-reach target sites.

What Is Dermapen Used For?

Dermapen microneedling is largely used for treating a number of skin conditions and achieving the following results:

• Skin lifting, firming, and rejuvenation
• Treating lip wrinkles
• Textural improvement to chest
• Retexturing of skin in the neck region
• Reduction of acne and keloid scars, stretch marks, melasma, and hyperpigmentation
• Softening of fine lines and wrinkles
• Minimizing pore size
• Treating and improving a hair-loss condition called alopecia
• Promoting penetration of active ingredients

What Is the Typical Downtime?

Since Dermapen microneedling technology is relatively less invasive as compared to other conventional cosmetic procedures, the patient can achieve complete recovery within two or three days of the session. There might be mild swelling or redness on the treated area, which will fade away within a day or two.
