Dermapen® is a fractional micro-needling system that works to tighten, lift, and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing stretch marks, as well as surgical and acne scars. Dermapen is safe on all skin types and takes little time to administer with minimal discomfort and downtime.
How Does the Dermapen® Work?
The Dermapen® is an automated micro-needling system with a disposable tip cartridge that uses 12 micro-needles that vertically stamp the skin at high speed. That causes micro-injuries to the skin stimulating new collagen and elastin production. These micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.
How Long Are Dermapen® Treatments?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated. A typical treatment lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Typically, a patient will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). A patient’s skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post-treatment care.
Generally, there is no downtime, but patients may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people can return to normal, daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Is a Dermapen® Treatment Right For Me?
It’s important to discuss your reasons for seeking micro-needling treatment with your healthcare provider. Dermapen’s® advanced micro-needling can effectively reduce scarring and other markings up to 2.5 mm deep into in the skin. During a consultation, your doctor will determine if Dermapen® treatments are the best option for you.
