Dermapen® is a fractional micro-needling system that works to tighten, lift, and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing stretch marks, as well as surgical and acne scars. Dermapen® is safe on all skin types, and takes little time to administer with minimal discomfort and downtime.
How Does the Dermapen® Work?
The Dermapen® is an automated micro-needling system with a disposable tip cartridge that uses 12 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. This causes micro-injuries to the skin stimulating new collagen and elastin production. These micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.
How Long Are Dermapen® Treatments?
The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated. A typical treatment lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Typically, a patient will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). A patient’s skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Generally there is no downtime, but patient’s may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal, daily activities immediately after the treatment.
