Skin disorders (Skin Atrophy)
As the world’s most trusted micro-needling system, the Dermapen distributes 1300 tiny punctures into the skin every second, encouraging the body to heal and regrow new skin and collagen caused by micro-damage.
Dermapen Skin needling includes threes that adopt CIT mechanics to promote collagen growth throughout the skin. The first phase allows for the release of important growth factors in the body (including epidermal growth, fibroblast proliferation, matrix production and fibroblast chemotaxis). Throughout phase two tissue proliferation takes place, continuously releasing these growth factors through the likes of fibroblasts, monocytes and keratinocytes. Finally, phase three allows the tissue to remodel itself by maturing vascular matrix cells and tightening the surrounding skin.
Results are usually seen as soon as the first procedure has been completed.
Dermapen involves minimal to no pain. However, if you have a low pain threshold we can recommend using vitamin A and C creams leading up to the date of your micro needling procedure. Additionally, you can use resveratrol to give the skin added strength.
You can also opt for a numbing agent; however, our clients tend to opt for no numbing agent as the Therapists will ensure your comfort during treatment and can adjust settings to treat comfortably over sensitive more delicate areas of the skin.
Most procedures take between 30-60 minutes to complete the entire face. This may vary, depending on the complexity of the skin’s condition.
The advantage of Dermapen micro needling means you can return to your daily routine immediately after the procedure. Your therapist will recommend that you apply antioxidants to ensure healing reaches its full potential. Furthermore, it’s necessary for you to wait 7 days or more before receiving filler injections to undergo this treatment.
It is not recommended that you receive micro needling treatment whilst you are pregnant or breastfeeding. As the needles naturally trigger a response to the ‘micro-injuries’ caused by the Dermapen, the body requires the same vitamins and nutrients as the baby to heal. Additionally, there is risk of infection – a factor that must be avoided during pregnancy.
The Dermapen is safer for your skin, not as painful, requires less downtime and produces better results. Whereas, the dermal roller is rolled across the skin creating punctures as it is moved – this process is much more traumatic to the skin (increasing downtime) instead of the Dermapen vertical needle insertion.
