DermaPen is an advanced collagen induction treatment that stimulates the skin in a minimally invasive manner through controlled wounding process. The process triggers the release of natural growth factors, including production of fresh collagen and elastin to tighten the skin from within. The procedure is safer and causes much less damage to the epidermis in comparison to other techniques such as lasers or derma rolling and other ablative therapies.
DermaPen procedure involves automated micro-needling. Tiny needles are applied to generate controlled micro-wounds in the skin in order to promote fresh production of collagen and elastin. The procedure also creates superficial micro-channels for better absorption of anti-ageing topical serums which are applied during the treatment, resulting in more effective outcomes.
Your practitioner will usually recommend a series of three collagen induction treatments, spaced one month apart from each other. A few patients with deeper wrinkles, acne scars or severe sun damage may require more treatment sessions.
DermaPen collagen induction treatment can be suitable for people with any skin type, and it can address a wide range of aesthetic skin concerns. The treatment may be suitable for almost every area of the body.
Results can be noticed after the first DermaPen treatment in most cases. Individual response will vary, but it is common for positive results to start appearing as early as one to two weeks following the first treatment session.
