Using multiple needles to vertically penetrate the surface layers of skin, treatment with Dermapen® allows the body to begin the wound-healing process which breaks up older collagen chains to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin. Once the Dermapen® treatment is complete, a dermatologist can apply active ingredients to manage any ongoing skin condition such as acne.
Skin needling is based on the skin's ability to heal itself after an injury. Right after the skin encounters any physical damage, it immediately eliminates the damaged tissue to replace it with new, healthy skin. Dermapen® induces small, controlled areas of damage to trigger the production of new collagen without the risks of scarring resulting in smoother and firmer skin.
Each patient's healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area and in rare cases minor pin-point bleeding depending on the depth of the needle penetration (Dermapen®'s disposable treatment applicator is adjustable). Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.
Depending on the depth of treatment decided by your dermatologist, numbing creams can be used to increase patient comfort. Dermapen®'s applicator can be adjusted to a length of .5mm to 2.5mm based on your skin condition. Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those undergoing treatment with the full 2.5mm are offered numbing creams as an option for treatment.
Each person's skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement with one to three treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need two to five session. The number of treatment sessions required will be determined during a consultation.
