HAVE YOU HEARD???
The DERMAPEN is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin!
So what is it? DERMAPEN is fractional, which means it leaves healthy skin intact, to allow for a quicker healing process with little to no downtime. DERMAPEN is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pores, stretch marks, keloid, surgical and acne scars. It has been successfully used for hair restoration in cases of alopecia as well!
Dermapen promotes scar-less healing similar to other fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. It helps in stimulating new healthy tissue growth and new collagen will be laid down and deposited with new tissue formation. The maturation stage of new healthy skin takes place from day 28, to two years after treatment. While there is little to no downtime, it is important to follow the post treatment care.
Post Treatment Care:
Be sure to wash your face thoroughly a few hours after your Dermapen treatment. Be gentle and massage your face slowly with tepid water. For the first 1-3 days, your skin may feel a little dry and tight (totally normal) the use of moisturizers will help alleviate that. We recommend Skinceuticals Epidermal Repair moisturizer. Be sure to avoid alcohol based toners for 10-14 days and avoid direct sun exposure for at least 10 days if possible. Lastly, do not apply chemical sunscreen the same day as the Dermapen treatment, use a mineral sunscreen with zinc or titanium dioxide. Before treatment it is important to have a consultation with your provider to review the full list of pre and post treatment guidelines.
