The Dermapen is a revolutionary new device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen production in the skin without damaging it. It can be used by both men and women and has numerous beneficial effects:
- Scar Removal - including acne scar removal / treatment
- Stretch Mark Removal / Treatment
- Micro-needling of the skin is an increasingly common cosmetic procedure, but the Dermapen is an FDA approved application. The Dermapen can be used on almost any part of the body: the arms, hands, legs, thighs, body, abdomen, neck, face, scalp, even the delicate areas of skin including below the eye area.
Regular use can help remove stretch marks, improve blood supply and collagen density in the skin, which helps with the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sun damage and loose skin. The Dermapen can help to remove acne scars or remove surgery scars and the skin treated improves its level of elasticity, becoming thicker, smoother and is tightened.
The Dermapen treatment process is sometimes known as collagen induction therapy. The end result is a greater density of collagen fibres and elastin in the skin, without the need for resurfacing or the peeling of the epidermis like with acids or by laser. There is no requirement for time off work or a potentially embarrassing healing process. After all, we all wish to appear younger… but it is much better if it appears a natural thing rather than a procedure!
How does the Dermapen work?
As you move the device over your skin, it creates pin point punctures into the dermis - the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. The human body reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process, but usually it will only heal as far as it must to keep you healthy - which are different to healing to a cosmetic level. By persistently triggering the healing process, you encourage your body to continue healing until the job is finished.
Your body normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are OK, but with the gentle reminder caused by the micro-needling, the body is tricked into continuing the healing process until the body has also healed itself on a cosmetic level. This process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each micro-needle treatment, but noticeable results can be seen within a month! Your skin naturally renews itself every 40 days, so with a little stimulation changes can be dramatic and fast.
Skin micro-needling with the Dermapen may be carried out safely on all types of skin and all skin colours. Other treatments often have to avoid sensitive areas - such as around the eyes, the neck and the backs of the hands, but the micro-needle roller can be used on all of these areas. The epidermis and melanocytes in the basal area are not damaged, so there’s no possibility of post inflammatory hype
