What you need to know about Dermapen Skin Needling.

Skin needling has become one of the most popular upcoming treatments for reversing the signs of aging, but what do we really know about skin needling?

Dermapen skin needling is a method of skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. Performed with a topical anaesthetic for comfort, tiny micro needles penetrate the skin at a rapid speed, creating small fractional channels which trigger the healing response of the skin. This process leads to a smoother, livelier complexion, reduction of scarring, uneven pigment, wrinkles and an improvement of skin health.

What is so unique about dermapen skin needling?

When we are young our skin has the ability to regenerate our cells. Fibroblasts, the cells responsible for creating new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid (skin proteins that give the skin strength, elasticity and hydration) in particular at this age can divide and create new cells, getting rid of old damaged cells, making room for new ones. However, what happens when we reach age 20, this cell division of fibroblasts ceases, so the fibroblasts you have then are cells you have for the rest of your life.

Dermapen is the only treatment that can activate fibroblast cell division, creating new healthy fibroblasts, so your skin can make healthy collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic acid once again.

Dermapen is also able to fractionally target pigmentation in the epidermal layers of the skin, destroying the pigment which allows it to be shed off.

Is the treatment safe?

Dermapen is a one of a kind skin needling system which uses sterilised single use needle cartridges, which means there is absolutely no chance of contamination. The oscillating single use needle cartridge penetrate vertically into the skin and unlike rollers, have zero risk of puckering and triangular scars as the needles are inserted and removed at the same angle. The controlled depth of Dermapen skin needling also means that your skin concerns can be targeted at the exact skin depth needed for your particular concern.
