Without damaging or removing the skin, microneedling can be used to for the effective treatment of acne scars, stretch marks, skin tightening, pigmentation and wrinkles. Even wound healing can be stimulated through the use of microneedling.
Because your skin has self-healing qualities, the skin heals itself after the procedure and increases the production of collagen on its own. Minimal epidermal damage can be expected and there is no downtime for patients. The procedure is quick and known for being less painful and uncomfortable.
The Dermapen uses multiple microscopic needles that vertically pierce the skin and causes micro-wounds. The pen is moved across the skin in close proximity so that the body experiences the piercing of the skin as a wound and triggers itself to start the healing process.
