Dermapen is an innovative skin needling therapy to treat aged and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and much more. The device utilizes multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with Automatic Occilating Vertical Nedling (AOVN) technology. Natural collagen production is stimulated when Dermapen is moved across the skin.
The advanced skin needling in Dermapen results in scar-less healing as well as increased production of normal collagen. This outcome is similar to fractional laser treatments minus the side effects and downtime. Dermapen is also believed to be more powerful and more advantageous than the majority of chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Dermapen’s technique causes less trauma and has minimal skin damage opposed to standard skin needling rollers. This also results in reduced pain and discomfort, which makes it a safer, more effective treatment.
Overall, Dermapen is recommended to treat aged and sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, vertical lip lines, skin tightening and rejuvenation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars (acne, surgical, and burns), and Alopecia. Since Dermapen has a variety of uses, the recommended amount of treatments varies. If you’re seeking rejuvenation, it’s recommended to have 4-6 treatments that are 4 weeks apart. Six treatments are recommended for acne scarring that is spaced 6 weeks apart. Depending on your stretch marks, it’s recommended to have 4-8 treatments that are 4-6 weeks apart.
Patients can expect to see results as soon as the first treatment- more significant results will appear the more treatments you have. Once you have completed all of your treatments, your skin will continue to progress over the next 6-12 months.
