This treatment, also known as micro needling, is mostly performed to regenerate and tighten the skin, to improve wrinkles and make the skin look healthier.
Dermapen creates micro channels in the skin during application. These micro channels increase fibroblast and collagen synthesis by stimulating wound healing which in turn gives the skin a tighter, healthier and a more radiant appearance.
It can be performed alone as well as in combination with other treatments. Dermapen, which can also be used to treat acne scars, skin hyperpigmentation and hair loss, is, in our practice, mostly used to regenerate and tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles in the face, neck and cleavage.
Dermapen can be performed in a clinical setting following the application of a topical anesthetic ointment. It is important to use sun screen and moisturizer to protect the skin which is in a regenerative process following treatment.
