Dermapen MicroNeedling regenerates the affected area by stimulating the production and distribution of collagen. This is achieved when the 12 or 16 needle cartridge glides over the skin, creating up to 1920 fractional microchannels per second that penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the body’s natural wound healing response. The result is an overall improvement in the appearance of problematic skin breakouts, black/whiteheads (comodones), acne reduced, and scarring minimised.
ACNE: Acne can affect all skin types and all ages, and may be caused by a combination of genetics, hormone changes, health, stress and or environmental factors. Hormones can stimulate excess sebum (or oil) production, In turn excess oil, dry skin and debris combined can become trapped in the pore. If the pore becomes blocked the acne bacteria can cause inflammation and can make the skin more susceptible to other bacteria.
HYPERPIGMENTATION: Hyperpigmentation is the discolouration of skin caused by internal physical factors and/or external factors which can include hormonal changes, sun exposure, skin type, trauma and the skin’s natural ageing process. Presenting as areas of uneven skin tone, darkness, age spots or freckles, pigmentation occurs when excess melanin (skin pigment) has been stimulated. Surface pigmentation (Epidermal or Superficial) usually affects lighter skin tones and is usually created by sun damage, for example; Sun spots, Age spots, Freckles. Deeper Pigmentation (Dermal) can be caused by trauma, medications and hormonal factors, and can be manifested by Pigmented acne scarring, Birthmarks, Chloasma/Melasma.
AGEING / WRINKLES: Our skin shows signs of ageing in different ways, but the most common areas are usually:
Crow’s feet / laughter lines: This is often where wrinkles and fine lines show first. Small wrinkles spread outwards from your outer-eye after years of smiling and concentrating.
Lipstick lines: Delicate areas around the lips form expression lines, causing unsightly lipstick “bleeding” and uneven contours around your smile. Often these fine lines around the lips look like “smokers lines”, even if you don’t smoke.
Deeper expression lines: Untreated fine lines and wrinkle will develop into deeper expression lines such as “frown lines” on your forehead (known as Glabellar lines).
Sagging skin: The natural age process, free radical damage and non active skincare regime may lead to saggy skin – areas often neglected such as the neck and decolloté, skin surrounding the ears, back of hands, back of the neck/hair line are often tell-tale areas of aging skin.
Uneven skin tone: A natural sign of aging can be uneven skin tone, particularly for those who expose their skin regularly to the elements. Sun Damage and pigmentation is a leading indication for those seeking to undergo Dermapen microneedling treatments.
Our skin’s renewal process slows down as we age, so Dermapen Treatments are the safe, natural alternative to fight the aging process. Clinical Dermapen Treatments along with other combination therapies can produce amazing results. What’s more, Dermapen treatments naturally work from within. The natural wound-healing responses created by microneedling treatments will kick start the production of collagen and elastin production.
