Dermapen is a fractional micro-needling device that is used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, pore size and skin rejuvenation. The device uses an automated stamp method to vertically pierce the skin which results in increased collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Features include a multiple of speeds and adjustable needle depths from 0.25 to 2.5mm.
Dermapen can easily treat areas such as the upper lip, nose, and around the eyes, which is usually hard to reach. It promotes natural scar-less healing and collagen reproduction which is similar to fractional laser, IPL and laser resurfacing.
With Dermapen, there is minimal downtime and it does not have any side effects. Dermapen can be used on any skin type or color. Treatments are usually 15-20 minutes, depending on the areas treated. A strong numbing cream is applied and left on the skin for about 20 minutes. After, the cream is washed off and the treatment begins. After the treatment, the area treated will be red, similar to sunburn. The next day, you will be able to apply cover-up and sunscreen.
The number of treatments recommended varies, depending on the condition of the skin. For basic skin rejuvenation, 4-5 treatments, 4 weeks apart. For acne scarring, 5-6 treatments, 4 weeks apart.
