All About Dermapen
Your face and skin are often the first thing people notice about you. Keeping it looking natural, healthy and vibrant can get difficult as the years go by, whether from wrinkles, scarring, or too much sun. Oftentimes over-the-counter devices and products alone can't put your skin back to a healthy look and feel.
For a long time, invasive cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures were the only way to restore the natural look of your skin. Now, more effective and versatile aesthetic medical procedures such as Dermapen, a microneedling procedure are available.
This innovative skin therapy system allows the practitioner to deliver customized improvements to the skin; in many cases immediate improvements. The length of the puncture is adjustable, and the results provide more than just the rebuilding of collagen, which itself begins the process of scar reduction. Because some skin care product molecules are too large to cross the skin barrier, Dermapen opens up the skin for a limited window of time -- long enough for additional products and treatments to be better absorbed. The face being the primary location for application, it allows the physician to quickly apply certain treatments to a variety of areas or achieve certain desired results:
- Lip wrinkles
- Skin Texture / Tone
- Pore appearance
- Increase product absorption
- Superficial facial wrinkles
- Skin texture on the neck
- Acne Scarring
- Melasma and Pigmentation
- Textural improvements to chest
- Stretch marks
The premise for how it works is simple: the device makes a small wound in the skin, and the skin responds 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.
Dermapen is completely safe and causes minimal side effects with little downtime. After the procedure, your face may be red or flushed, similar to how a sunburn appears. Some people may also feel some mild skin sensitivity. Side effects usually diminish in a few hours and within a day or two are gone. Another benefit is the procedure is considered minimally invasive, which means less downtime for you.
