What is DERMAPEN®?
DERMAPEN® device is a device designed to perform a medical procedure that utilises the technology of automatic skin micropunctures using sterile needles contained in a disposable end. The patented technology allows patients worldwide to enjoy its effects.
What does DERMAPEN® micro-needling treatment involve?
During the treatment, thanks to fractional micro-needling, we insert active substances through epidermis into the dermis, stimulating the skin to remodel and create networks of new collagen fibres. The micro-injuries intentionally caused during the treatment initiate natural mechanisms of skin regeneration and renewal and speed up its cell divisions.
What happens during DERMAPEN® treatment?
The treatment is preceded by a consultation with a specialist, who gives the patient a referral to the treatment. After the qualification, the therapeutic agent is applied on the skin that has been prepared and disinfected; it is squashed via pulsed perforation at the depth of 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm depending on the needs and treatment area. We dynamically move DERMAPEN® a few times over the treatment area.
What are the indications for the treatment?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dilated pores
- Acne scars
- Uneven tone
- Stretch marks
- Thin skin
What effects can be expected after the treatment?
After a series of DERMAPEN® treatments, the main effect is stimulation of the skin for natural production of collagen and elastin. The treatment helps in absorption of active ingredients into the skin leaving it nourished. It also leads to improvement of the skin tightness leaving it significantly younger. DermaPen is also used in treatment of acne scars and alopecia. It reduces fine lines and creases, narrows pores and eliminates stretch marks.
How many treatments are required to achieve the desired effect?
The series depends on the skin type and problems reported by the patient. The best effects are achieved after a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 3-6 weeks apart. The therapy is arranged on an individual basis.
What aftercare is needed?
Immediately after the treatment, the patient may experience mild burning and the feeling of heat. 8 hours after the treatment, the skin should be washed with a delicate cleaning agent for sensitive skin. For skincare, you should use medical dermocosmetics chosen for you at our clinic. These products will speed up skin healing and reduce redness and swelling without inhibiting inflammation. You should absolutely apply high-factor sunscreen at least two week after the treatment.
