Skin Needling with Dermapen 4
Unlike heat based technology, the Dermapen uses very fine needles to promote tissue stimulation, typically used on scarring. Once scars are broken, new collagen will help soften out topical visible scars.
What is a Dermapen 4 Treatment?
The Dermapen 4 is a vibrational stamping device; a new technology that is an alternative to previous treatments using a manual handheld roller. The microneedles create tiny puncture wounds in the top layer of skin to generate new healthy skin cells.
The Dermapen can be used on any skin colour and skin type since heat is not being used.
As previously mentioned, the Dermapen can reduce the visibility of scars but also can aid in:
- Tissue regeneration,
- Collagen induction therapy,
- Fine lines and wrinkles,
- Stretch marks,
- Skin tightening,
- Hair loss therapy, and many other conditions
How is the procedure performed and when will I see results?
Firstly, the skin is cleaned and sterilised. Also, to ensure your comfort, the skin is numbed for a pain free treatment. The tip will glide over your skin creating stimulating channels; an even flushing is the best indication for a perfect medical treatment.
The treatment usually takes around 90 minutes in total and you will see results instantly. Over the next few weeks, collagen will continue to grow and your skin will improve over six to twelve months.
For scars and acne scar reduction, we recommend having several treatments, four weeks apart.
Post treatment care
Inflammation of the skin post treatment is extremely short and fades significantly within hours; from redness to pinkish that may last from 12 to 48 hours on average.
In order to reduce redness, we recommend topical healing minerals and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate the skin. Post treatment, your skin will become very dry, so we recommend a soothing cleanser to clean and an extra hydrating moisturiser to rehydrate, if needed. Zinc sun protection is also recommended.
Can you increase results at home?
There are homecare roller systems available to help stimulate the skin and help penetrate ingredients deeper into it. This additional home treatment even once a week will promote results.
