Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns via collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment may help those looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin
Dermapen treatments are popular and innovative anti-aging and scar correction procedures designed to rejuvenate the skin making it look smoother and more youthful. Currently the world’s most advanced skin needling technology, in comparison to other skin rejuvenating procedures Dermapen is relatively non-invasive, painless and inexpensive, giving you fresh and fabulous new-looking skin.As the name suggests, the Dermapen is a small, pen-like tool which delivers multiple tiny punctures to the skin. While it’s small in stature the Dermapen is big on results, proving to be an effective treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, treating acne scars, improving skin texture, minimising pores and providing an overall rejuvenation of the skin.
But don’t worry if you are needle-phobic, you won’t need to see the microscopic needles contained within the Dermapen – and they’re so tiny.
The Dermapen device uses many vibrating, fine needles that create multiple micro-channels in the skin. Suitable for all skin types, the Dermapen works at a precise needle depth, rapidly penetrating the skin to produce tiny micro punctures. This technique stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to produce the two proteins needed for supple, smooth and youthful skin – collagen and elastin.
