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 that result in new collagen synthesis. The result is smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin down the line. The DermaPen treatment is suitable for all skin types especially patients with acne scarring, enlarged pores, and moderate to severe wrinkling.
At Skin Renewal, we are able to dramatically improve the results of skin needling/Dermapen, by combining this with Laser Genesis. The synergistic approach yields excellent results as the blood and circulation increased by the needling becomes a rich target for the Laser right in the papillary dermis on the skin (the layer where collagen and elastin and Hyaluronic Acid is produced). The Laser is “drawn” to the haemoglobin which is rich in the skin after needling and therefore intensifies the skin tightening process by stimulating new collagen production, tightening the existing collagen and encouraging faster healing and rejuvenation.
This approach really takes the results of your micro-needling/Dermapen treatment to the next level and as a result, fewer treatments are needed to reach the end result.
