What is skin needling / Collagen induction therapy with Dermapen®?
Skin needling with the Dermapen® uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating action. The needles cut into the deep layers of the skin which helps to stimulate new collagen growth, improve the skin texture and reduce the appearance of scarring and fine to moderate lines. Skin Needling also perforates and softens fibrous scar tissue enabling the deposition of new collagen. The new collagen fills depressed scars and wrinkles from the bottom up lifting the depression so they are level with the surrounding skin. This process takes 2-3 months to produce visible results and can also help thicken thin, crepey skin. Unlike traditional skin rollers, Dermapen® causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal (top skin layer) damage so reducing pain and discomfort. The depth of the needles can also be adjusted so delicate thinner skinned areas around the eyes, lips and nose can be treated with minimal discomfort. What skin conditions can be treated with Dermapen®?
- Aged, sun damaged and sagging skin
- Acne scarring
- Scars from acne, burns, surgery
- Stretch marks
- Skin tightening and rejuvenation
- Alopecia (hair loss)
