Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy has been around for a while as a skin rejuventation treatment that can help get topical medications where you want them to go while encouraging the skin to revitalize and repair itself. Basically, micro-needling makes tiny microscopic punctures in your skin that open up pores and stimulate collagen production through the minor trauma that is causes in the dermal layer of the skin.
In the past, micro-needling has been often done using a roller with tiny needles on it but today, new technologies have enhanced the process of micro-needling. Though consumers can still use rollers to micro-needle their skin at home, using newer, automated methods has become possible with Dermapen, a product that makes micro-needling safer and less painful while still offering patients the ability to encourage collagen growth and get topical treatments to penetrate the top layer of the skin.
Dermapen is a new and exciting breakthrough technology coming to plastic surgery clinics and cosmetic treatment facilities near you! The Dermapen offers patients improved skin needling treatments designed to give skin extra tone, lift, and rejuvenation without the discomfort and pain caused by similar, but less advanced products.
The Dermapen was designed to target several different skin issues including, of course, wrinkles and fine lines, acnes scars, and uneven tone. But that’s not all it can do. This small, handheld micro-needling machine can also help plastic surgeons deal with keloid scars, melasma, hair loss, and pigmentation issues. Stretch marks and pore size can also be targeted with the device. Dermapen makes it easier for topical treatments like PRP, Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and hydrogenated collagen to absorb into the skin via the tiny needle holes made in the epidermal layer of the skin.
Dermapen micro-needling appears to help patients with a variety of different skin problems including wound healing. The needle-tip can be used to stimulate the skin and encourage new growth offering new alternatives to reduce scarring. Indeed, for individuals who are simply looking for skin revitalization, the tool can help to tighten and tone the face.
Other micro-needling devices on the market have shown similar results, but the Dermapen is safer and offers greater control to cosmetic and plastic surgeons using an automated, spring-loaded motion that keeps pain at a minimum without sacrificing results. The depth of the needles can be controlled, which isn’t possible with the roller micro-needling devices. Because the depth of the needle can be adjusted, it’s possible to treat more sensitive areas on the face around the eyes and nose to get even better results.
Though some patients are skeptical about the possibility of achieving results using tiny needle punctures in the face, many proponents of the treatment actually argue that it can achieve better outcomes than microdermabrasion or laser therapies. Dermapen is taking micro-needling to the next level by making it even more controlled and safer for patients and offering new alternatives to treat scars, melasma, thinning hair and other problematic skin conditions by encouraging the skin to simply repair itself.
