The Dermapen 3 is a motorized microneedling device that can produce over 1300 dermal penetrations per second. The micro-injuries that are created cause an inflammatory response that ultimately causes collagen production. The injury to the dermis is fractional, only a small percentage is affected, which has been shown to lead to faster healing and an improved risk profile when compared to treating the entire dermis. There is no heat produced, as a laser would, so the risks of pigmentation issues is practically nil. For maximal benefits, a series of about 6 are recommended.
The advantage of a Dermapen over a dermal roller is:
What conditions can a Dermapen treat?
What should I expect on the day of the Dermapen treatment?
After pictures are taken, a dermaplane is performed – using a scalpel, the superficial layer of skin is removed including fine superficial hairs.
A topical numbing cream will be placed on the skin for about 20 minutes.
The cream is wiped off and the face is cleaned thoroughly with hospital grade soap.
A hyaluronic acid lotion is placed on the skin which allows for easier movement of the Dermapen over the skin.
IF THIS IS A “VAMPIRE FACIAL”, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) IS NOW PLACE ON THE SKIN INSTEAD OF THE HYALURONIC ACID.
The Dermapen is then placed on the skin and each area is treated in at least 3 directions to get a thorough coverage. The product or PRP placed on the skin is pushed into the deeper layers of the dermis by the Dermapen.
When finished with the Dermapen treatment (about 20-30 minutes), topical growth factors or collagen stimulators are placed on the treated skin. Studies have shown that these topicals can penetrate 50x better immediately after the treatment.
Your face will remain red or pink for 24-48 hours. There is a skin care regime that will be tailor made for your skin, recommended by the aesthetician.
What are some other uses of the Dermapen?
