As we age, the natural production of the skin’s supporting cells, fibroblasts, and the skin’s collagen and Elastin, naturally diminish leading to wrinkles, sagging and hollows. Stimulating the skin to produce more fibroblasts, collagen and elastin is called ‘collagen induction therapy’ and is used as an adjunct to face lifts and other surgical antiaging interventions. Skin needling (a.k.a derma roller) has been around for a while as a collagen induction therapy and involves making ‘micro injuries’ to the skin with very fine needles. These injuries prompt the skin to go into healing mode, which includes the release of collagen, elastin and the stimulation of new supporting skin cells, fibroblasts. This skin needling in turn, reduces the signs of aging, like sagging, wrinkles, hollows and uneven skin tone.
Dermapen takes collagen induction therapy to the next level, giving amazing results with less damage, and therefore less pain and recovery time. The older derma roller penetrates the skin at an angle, meaning it is difficult to use on scar tissue, facial curves, and around the eyes. Dermapen, on the other hand, penetrates vertically, solving all these issues while still providing an excellent therapeutic result. Plus, the automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness of the treatment by increasing the absorption of serums (such as PRP), while reducing pain and discomfort. Dermapen treatment is just as effective as ablative skin rejuvenation treatments such as fraxel, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels without the significant costs or recovery time. Dermapen is suitable for skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation, acne scars and wound healing, improvement in wrinkles and fine lines and to minimize pore size. Dermapen treatments have proven to be effective on all manner of acne pitting and scarring, burn scars, injury scars, and yes, surgical scars, as well.
