The Dermapen™ is an advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles, smoker’s lines, sun damage, large pores, heal acne, surgical and burn scars, rejuvenate and tighten the skin, improve stretch marks and regulate skin pigmentation.
The Dermapen™ is revolutionary electronic device that uses multiple fine needles to vertically pierce the skin. This causes collagen remodelling and enhances skin rejuvenation. Unlike needle rollers, Dermapen™ uses a precisely-controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis.
Dermapen™ vs. Dermal Rollers
Dermal rollers are simpler predecessors to the Dermapen™. In a 60-patient study conducted by Prof. Tony Chu comparing the dermal rollers to the Dermapen™ revealed that not only were Dermapen™ Treatments less painful and had a shorter period of downtime, they were also much more effective in achieving visible results when compared to dermal rollers.
Skin needling with the new Dermapen™ is undertaken with minimal discomfort and is quick, taking only 5-10 minutes per treated area.
The Dermapen™3 offers unparalleled collagen induction by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.
Dermapen™ skin needling is a safe procedure with very low risks. Infection and scarring are rare. Since no melanin-absorbing laser and no heat are involved, the Dermapen™ is relatively safer than lasers or IPL, for darker skin types. Dermapen™ can be used to treat any part of the body. It is very effective in treating sensitive areas such as the face, neck, and chest.
For minimum needle depths Dermapen™ treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied for 20 minutes before treatment and will render the treatments completely painfree.
There is redness and very minimal bleeding. You will look slightly sunburned for 24 hours following the treatment.
There is generally no down time after your treatment and most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately. You may develop effects such as mild swelling, bruising, and redness which would heal in two to three days. An application of Lycogel, a breathable camouflage cream will seal the skin and cover any redness.
After your Dermapen™ skin needling treatment, you must avoid using lotions and moisturisers that contain perfumes, colours, glycolic acids and retinol. Instead, it is recommended that you apply the provided moisturiser for a period of three to seven days. You should avoid exercising for about 24 hours after your Dermapen™ treatment as sweat can cause a stinging sensation. You should also avoid direct exposure to the sun for about one or two weeks after your Dermapen™ treatment. It is recommended that you regularly use sunscreens.
Typically you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments. The best results will be visible about six to eight weeks after the treatment when the collagen starts to rebuild. The results will be more visible over a period of about a year.
For best results the skin needs to be prepared with active ingredients such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C for about two weeks before a Dermapen™ treatment. This allows the skin strength to build especially in delicate skin areas, speeds up the healing time, and reduces the chances of post peel complications. Please discuss with your consultant.
The number of recommended Dermapen™ treatments depends upon the type of treatment needed. and can be repeated every 3-4 weeks.
A Dermapen™ treatment can be used safely on all skin types including darker skin and, any part of the body for skin tightening, lifting, rejuvenating, acne scar remodeling, fine wrinkle smoothing, stretch mark flattening and smoothing and scar remodeling.
