How is the treatment administered?
The treatment procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Dermapen needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.
Before the procedure starts a topical anaesthetic will be applied to your skin to ensure a comfortable experience. After the skin is numbed, the doctor gently moves the Dermapen over the skin to penetrate the epidermis layers of the skin which stimulates new collagen deposition.
What is the skins appearance after the treatment?
After the procedure the patient’s skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. The patient will also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatment and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
How quickly are results visible?
Visible results of skin rejuvenation are generally seen after just 4-6 weeks following procedure and improve further over time. A course of Dermapen sessions, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results; however skin improvement is noticeable after just one treatment.
Is the Dermapen safe?
Dermapen procedure does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after-care.
What are the indications for having a Dermapen treatment?
Dermapen procedure is especially effective for aging concerns such as wrinkles, lines, folds and crows feet as it will lift, revitalize and rejuvenate your skin.Because collagen is produced, scars and stretch marks can also improve from treatments especially indented acne scars,pitting,chicken pox scars. It also can be successfully used for surgical scars-wounds, breast augmentation, burn, injury, ice pick and box scars and hair loss/ baldness (alopecia).
Pigmentation issues can be helped including hyperpigmentation as well as Hypo-pigmentation, although pre treatment assessment and preparation here is essential. General lack of skin radiance, skin firmness and compactness are also an indication for dermapen treatments and visible improvements can be seen within weeks.
