Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the outermost layers of the skin. Collagen is responsible for giving skin its elasticity and firmness. While we often lose collagen over time as a normal part of aging, sun damage, elevated blood sugar levels and environmental toxins can also break down and destroy collagen. For those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, this minimally invasive cosmetic treatment can help.
This revolutionary dermatological treatment uses a series of micro-needles that are injected into the skin to induce collagen remodeling. Through different settings we can penetrate certain layers of the skin to treat these common dermatological conditions while also minimizing damage to the outer layers of the skin. With only six treatments per year, patients can see a drastic reduction in these common skin problems.
What Dermapen® Does
These ultra thin needles help to promote collagen production to significantly improve elasticity and skin tightness, as well as reduce the look of wrinkles, lines and even acne scars. When the handheld device is placed near the skin, these fine needles pierce through the dermis to create micro-traumas. This in turn produces an immune response that increases the production of new collagen and healthier skin.
Dermapen® can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as other dermal injectables, chemical peels or even cosmetic facial surgery to obtain the desired look.
The Benefits of Dermapen®
What makes this cosmetic treatment more appealing than other options is that it’s virtually non-invasive and pain-free. Dermapen® also offers optimal rejuvenating results that are similar to or even better than that of fractional laser treatment, while also remaining cost-effective.
Furthermore, there is virtually no downtime and even combination treatments that include Dermapen® see a reduction in recovery time. Talk to your skin care specialist about whether Dermapen® is the right step for you.
