What is it all about?
Dermapen microneedling improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars and pigmentation. The procedure is suitable for all skin types.
The unique springloaded needle tip uses an automated vibrating stamp-like motion which offers a more effective, controlled and safer method of piercing the skin than traditional skin-needling rollers, with minimal pain and bleeding. It also has a greater effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation.
For patient comfort, a topical anaesthetic is applied to the face approximately 30 minutes prior to treatment. Active cosmeceutical products are applied directly after the treatment, as open pathways created by the needles provide effective trans-delivery of product to deeper layers of the skin.
The needle depth can also be adjusted during the procedure to accommodate facial contours and hard to reach places, such as the nose, mouth and around the eyes
It is advisable to avoid the sun and to stop using any Retin-A and/or auto-immune treatment prior to microneedling treatment.
