Dermapen skin needling treatments result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin and is a great treatment for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores and moderate to severe wrinkling.
The concept of skin needling is based on the skin's ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, abrasions and other physical trauma. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin destroys old damaged tissue such as acne scarring and wrinkles and replaces it with new fresh healthy collagen. Skin needling allows for controlled induction of the skin's self repair mechanism by creating micro "injuries" in the skin which triggers a whole cascade of events, resulting in new collagen synthesis.
The amount of treatments for dramatic improvement will depend on the patient's age (older skin takes longer to regenerate and heal), the condition of the skin, the conditions treated and frequency of treatments.
During the treatment, the practitioner gently moves the Dermapen over the client's skin to create minute sub-cutaneous channels. This is perceived by the body as a "mini wound" which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which is all part of the healing process. This new fresh collagen remodels over time and thus one can expect moderate skin tightening of the treated area down the line. Sagging skin, stretch marks, pores and acne scars are all improved upon.
