Dermapen is a unique micro needling device that has quickly become the innovative Leader in Anti-Aging treatments. The Dermapen was recently awarded the Best Anti-Aging device at The Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas.
A traditional Chinese Medicine with over 5000 years of ancient acupuncture techniques history and results created and developed in the 1990s by a team of European plastic surgeons and dermatologists. The insertion of needles into the skin created electrical activity and a subsequent chain of events resulting in increased collagen production and an effective wound healing response. Unlike dermabrasion and laser treatments, there is minimal to no risk of hyper-pigmentation.
The Dermapen fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled via fractional delivery of needles micro injuries into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the normal physiology of skin.
The first phase
Begins with the release of the:
- Body’s growth factors
- New epidermal growth
- Fibroblast chemo-taxis
- Fibroblast proliferation
- Matrix production
This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes.
The second phase
continues release of growth factors from fibroblast, keratinocytes ans monocytes.
- Epidermal growth
- Fibroblast proliferation (increased collagen synthesis, wound repair)
- Collagen III, IV and I
- AG’s (fluids of the dermis = glycosaminoglycan’s)
- Proteglycans (“core protein”)
- Angiogenesis (creation of new blood vessels)
The last phase
results in tissue remodelling where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process. As a medical grade, stainless steel needles penetrate, they effectively create microscopic trauma deep within the skin’s matrix. As the skin reacts, tiny electrical signals are released which create a chain of events or a wound healing response. Cells are recreated and re-invigorated to replace any damage, Transforming Growth Factor is released from broken capillaries, fibroblast cells are proliferated, collagen is regenerated, cell division is increased and nutrient rich blood flow is stimulated.
Medically and clinically proven results:
- Stimulations of collagen,
- Increased Cell Regeneration,
- Increased Cell Proliferation,
- Angiogenesis (the formation & development of capillaries )
- Increased Topical Product Absorption,
- Regulated Pigmentation,
- Reduced size of the appearance of Pores,
- Reduced size of the appearance of Scar Tissue
- Reduce Appearance of Stretch Marks,
- Reduce Appearance of Cellulite,
- Increased Growth of stronger and thicker hair.
Dermapen treatment has a same effect as Fraxel with NO downtime, less risk of hyper pigmentations less pain.
How does it feel?
As a dermapen clinical treatments are performed at microscopic level within the skin, there is minimum trauma and discomfort. However, as the length of the needles increase, there is a greater requirement for anaesthetic. There is minimum trauma and discomfort, as we apply topical anaesthetic J most patients report a prickly sensation. All devices are manufactured out of medical grade stainless steel, ensuring that there is no reaction to human skin.
Depend on the needle length but every size design to the shortest and most comfortable recovery time possible, whilst still ensuring maximum results and treatment longevity. There is no downtime for the 0.25mm Homecare device. Immediately following in-clinic treatments with the 0.75mm, 1.5mm, and the 2.00mm devices, the skin may appear reddened, similar of mild sunburn. Some Patients skin may remain red and slightly swollen for 1-2 days, there will be no scabbing or lesions present.
It is fine to go straight to work and resume normal activities after the clinical treatment and any redness may be temporarily toned down with mineral make-up.
How many treatment do I need?
3 – 6 treatments 4 – 6 weeks apart, depending your skin condition, your age and your skin elasticity. As you age the collagen production slows down and we don’t want to damage the brand new collagen.
