DermaPen Skin Rejuvenation
Skin needling, also called Micro needling, has been a standard procedure in Europe for decades. Advances over the years led to the development of automated micro needling and the development of the DermaPen®. Although not as definitively effective as lasers, this simple mechanical device based on fine needle penetration can also deliver some of the same benefits of laser at a more affordable price point and with quicker visable results and less pain.
How does skin needling work?
The premise is simple – create a small wound (typical depth or 1/4mm to 1/2mm for facial treatments) and the skin will respond with collagen production and new skin cells. Depending on the depth of the needle penetration, the DermaPen can offer skin rejuvenation levels from the simple enhancement of product absorption to the clinical treatment of scars and wrinkles.
What can the DermaPen be used for?
DermaPen allows the technician to quickly treat specific skin areas – large or small – to achieve a number of goals.
· Lip Wrinkles
· Skin Texture / Tone
· Pore Appearance
· Increase Product Absorption
· Superficial Facial Wrinkles
· Hair Restoration, Treatment of Receding Hair Lines
· Acne Scarring / Trauma Scarring
· Melasma and Pigmentation
· Textural Improvements to chest
· Stretch Marks
- Skin Tightening
- Eye Bag Reduction
- Improvements have been noticed in the appearance of broken veins and burst capillaries
Treatment on the face is the primary location, but skin needling can successfully be used on any area of the body, with good results on the stomach for stretch marks and skin tightening over time.
How deep does the DermaPen go?
From very superficial penetration to deep dermal penetration, the professional applications have a wide range of potential to improve and correct skin problems without the use of lasers. Penetration ranges begin at cosmetic depth of 0.25mm to clinical treatment depths up to 2.5mm.
Light penetration opens the skin long enough for the introduction of specific treatment serums. Since most product molecules are too large to cross the skin barrier, they can only be minimally effective. The DermaPen opens the skin for a few minutes and this allows a huge increase of product penetration – your product ingredients can then reach beneath the surface where they will do the most good.Treatment serums can be selected for skin lightening, hydration, texture and pore tightening.
Mid penetration depths can have a very positive impact on superficial sun damage and light scarring to improve skin texture and tone and a visible improvement in pore size appearance.
Deeper levels of penetration can improve acne scars, burn scars, stretch marks and tighten skin and soften wrinkles.
DermaPen reduces the risk of post treatment pigmentation that is more prevalent with laser heat for ethnic skin (Patients will still need to use sun protection and avoid heat exposure while in the recovery phase.
Depending on the treatment goal, you can expect to see results immediately for product introduction benefit to 4 to 6 months for scarring.
You can now opt to include a short Fractional Laser Treatment to your DermaPen treatment for only £15. Fractional lasers can increase the results by breaking up melasma and discoloration under the skin and encouraging new collagen and elastin production, aiding in the skin tightening, lifting and clearing of imperfections such as Roscea and capilliary damage. Fractional lasers can be performed as a stand alone treatment for £30+ but here at Be Admired we believe you can get greater results when you combine certain proven methods, depending on your goals and requirments.
Is skin needling painful?
Superficial treatment levels are very tolerable, not painful but you will feel some sensation and vibration and a sore wind burn sensation during the 6-72 hours after treatment dependant on the depth used.
How does the Hair Restoration Work?
By stimulating blood flow, increasing the availability of cell nutrients, releasing vascular endothelial factor (VEGF), and upregulating fibroblast growth factor (FGF-7). Dermal needling in combination with Minoxidil or Specilaised Serums increase absorption of these products by at least 5, achieveing even greater results and stimulate hair regrowth.
What about Downtime?
Day 1: Erythema and red appearance and severity will depend upon how aggressive the treatment was performed.
Day 2: A red hue or pink hue may persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day if having scar treatment.
Day 3: Skin is usually back to normal colour and texture is improved
Day 4 - 90 skin continually improves.
How much does it cost?
One full face and neck treatment costs £45 including specially selected subjectables. A course of six is £245
One session elsewhere on the body starts at £30 and depends on treatment area size and subjectables used.
