If natural, beautiful skin rejuvenation is your goal, DermaPen might the procedure of choice for you. This revolutionary microneedling treatment works with the body’s regeneration system to turn back the clock on your appearance and address a host of specific skin concerns. By stimulating cell renewal and collagen production deep within the dermal layers, we can refresh and revitalize skin from the inside out.
How it Works
The DermaPen is a small device that resembles a writing pen, with a series of fine needles placed one end. As the applicator moves across the skin, the needles create tiny injuries in the skin that stimulate the healing processes of the body. The depth of the needles can be tailored to your needs, allowing us to treat a wide range of concerns in a single procedure.
The body responds to a DermaPen procedure by sending an abundance of oxygen and nutrients to the treatment area. This process enhances your complexion, leaving you with a healthy, radiant glow. At the same time, DermaPen stimulates collagen and elastin production from the inner dermal structure to the outer dermis. These essential proteins support the skin to maintain its smooth, supple appearance. Since collagen and elastin diminish as we age, restoring their levels will also restore our youthful look naturally and with long-lasting results.
The DermaPen is an effective rejuvenation tool, refreshing your complexion and enhancing your youthful appearance. In addition, the treatment works on the following concerns:
- Superficial lines, including those that form around the eyes and mouth
- Shallow scarring left behind from acne, injury or surgery
- Uneven skin tone and texture due to sun damage or other factors
- Enlarged pores that often occur with acne or ageing
- Pigmentation irregularities, such as brown spots and melasma
In addition to treating the face, DermaPen can be used on the neck and chest to produce the same positive results. The procedure is effective alone but also allows for the deeper penetration of topical serums, which may be applied immediately following a DermaPen treatment.
What to Expect
Before your DermaPen treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. The device glides smoothly across the skin, allowing us to treat even larger areas of the face, neck or chest relatively quickly. You will be able to resume a daily schedule as soon as your procedure is over.
You may notice your skin is red and slightly tender for the first few days following treatment. Mild swelling can also occur, but this usually subsides within a day or two. In most cases, no one will notice that you just had a procedure performed and there will not be enough discomfort to keep you from any of your activities.
Achieving Your Goals
Results from DermaPen occur gradually as the body’s healing processes produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. While you will enjoy significant results after a single DermaPen session, best results are achieved after a series of appointments. We typically recommend around four to six treatments for basic rejuvenation benefits, while eliminating imperfections like scarring or pigmentation might take a few more sessions. You will see improvement after every procedure, as the device slowly turns back the clock on your complexion.
DermaPen is an excellent way to take your skin to the next level of beautiful. To find out more about this treatment, contact The Face Institute today on 02 9412 4599.
