Dermapen Treatment

& How It Works

Dermapen is a micro-needling procedure that stimulates the skin’s own healing processes and triggers collagen production. It is perfect for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks and general rejuvenation of the skin. Dermapen applicator has very fine needles attached to its top that gently puncture the treated area and cause micro-injuries. Once the new and healthy collagen and elastin have built up, they smooth and tighten the skin, fill in the wrinkles and improve the appearance of acne scars.

 It is a safe and minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t require a long downtime.

 

WHY IS DERMAPEN TREATMENT SPECIAL?

The Dermapen micro-needling pen consists of individually-sealed and sterile needle cartridges that are disposable. During the treatment, the therapist uses the device and moves it up and down across the patient’s skin. The needles create 1,300 micro punctures per second and these micro-channels stimulate the skin’s healing processes and trigger the production of collagen.

 By stimulating the production of collagen, Dermapen triggers the body’s ability to repair and regrow new skin cells as an answer to the micro-damage caused by micro-needles.

Dermapen treatment is precisely controlled so it doesn’t cause any damage to the surface layer of the skin.

 It actually stimulates collagen production by activating the three phases of CIT. The first phase starts when the body releases its growth factors which cause epidermal growth, fibroblast and matrix creation.

 The second phase starts with the production of collagen and elastin.

 The third phase represents the result of Dermapen treatment - the skin tissue gets remodeled, and the skin becomes firmer.

 

WHAT CAN DERMAPEN TREATMENT ADDRESS?

 Dermapen treatment can be performed both on the face and the body. It is suitable for men and women who wish to improve the appearance of their skin in a minimally invasive way and without a long recovery.

 Dermapen treatment for the face can improve:

●      Acne scars - after a couple of treatment sessions the patient can notice dramatic results. Depressed acne scars become less visible as the new skin cells fill them up. Eventually, the skin’s surface becomes more evenly textured. 

●      Hyperpigmentation - the treatment can dramatically improve dark spots and patchy areas. With microchannels that are created in the skin, the skin cells return to their normal production. After the treatment the skin is dry and it peels off the dark spots. Once the peeling is finished, the new collagen starts to produce and creates a new skin layer. The new skin is brighter and the skin tone is more even.

●      Dark circles under the eyes - Once Dermapen causes micro-injuries in this area, the skin becomes thicker and dark circles become less noticeable. The collagen makes the skin on this delicate area firmer. The treatment also improves blood circulation which greatly reduces the appearance of dark circles.  

●      Wrinkles and fine lines - Once the collagen and elastin have built up, the skin gets firmer and thicker. New skin cells fill up wrinkles and fine lines. The skin texture is more elastic and firmer. The treatment greatly reduces these signs of aging. 

●      Dull and tired-looking skin 

●      Surgical and trauma scars 

●      Enlarged pores 

As the treatment is completely safe, it can be performed on sensitive facial areas like under the eyes or around the lips. 

Dermapen for the body can improve: 

●      Stretch marks - The treatment can eliminate stretch marks forever. With the micro-injuries that it causes to the skin, it helps the skin to heal itself with collagen and elastin production. As the new skin cells start to grow they replace the skin that is damaged by stretchmarks. The whole treated area of the skin becomes firmer and more elastic. 

●      Mildly loose skin on the stomach (especially after weight loss) 

●      Surgical and other scars 

●      Hair loss - Dermapen treatment can activate dead hair follicles to start growing hair again. This happens because of the micro-injuries that are created on the scalp. The treatment also improves blood circulation which is responsible for nutrients that reach dead follicles and regenerate them. Once the collagen is produced on the scalp, thicker and healthier hair starts to grow again.

 

WHO SHOULD AVOID DERMAPEN TREATMENT?

 Although this treatment is safe for all skin types, some patients shouldn’t undergo it especially if they have some autoimmune diseases or bleeding disorders. Also, the treatment should be avoided if the patient has active acne or other inflammations. Pregnant or breastfeeding ladies are not good candidates for Dermapen either.

 

WHAT DOES THE DERMAPEN TREATMENT INVOLVE?

When the patient arrives at Lucia Clinic, first he/she is consulted with Lucia’s skin therapist, who examines the patient’s skin concerns and decides if this treatment is suitable for him/her. The patient also talks about previous medical history or if he/she is currently taking any medications. Then, the therapist creates a customized treatment plan that will specifically address the patient’s skin issues and also meet the patient’s expectations.

 The treatment plan includes the number of treatment sessions that will bring the best results. Also, the therapist will choose the length of Dermapen micro-needles according to the patient’s skin type and skin concerns. For example, the therapist can use from 0.13 to 0.25 mm needle length to improve the absorption of skincare products. For acne scars, on the other hand, the therapist will use a 1.5-2 mm needle length in order to penetrate deeper into the skin layers.

 The needle length is manually changed and can be adjusted according to which area is being treated.

 Before the treatment starts, the patient's skin is cleansed and numbing cream is applied if necessary. Then the therapist applies the Dermapen applicator over the patient’s skin and punctures it. Once the whole treatment area is covered the treatment is finished. The patient can receive a specially chosen serum that will address his/her skin issues and further boost the results. Finally, a high SPF is applied to the patient’s treated area to protect the skin.

 The treatment usually lasts from 20 to 30 minutes, but it may last longer if the treated area is larger.

IS DERMAPEN TREATMENT PAINFUL?

 During the treatment, the patient may feels light discomfort when the micro-needles puncture the skin. It is usually compared to scratching, but the needles puncture the skin so fast that it is only mildly unpleasant. However, a topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment to ease the discomfort. The patient may also take simple painkiller medications if he/she is worried about the discomfort.

 Once the micro-needles have punctured the skin, the patient will have pinpoint bleeding sites that stop right away.

 

WHAT ARE THE DERMAPEN TREATMENTSIDE EFFECTS AND DOWNTIME?

 Immediately after the treatment, the patient’s skin is red and feels like it was sunburnt. This sensitivity should stop after 24 hours. Mild swelling might happen also as well as moderate skin peeling 2 days post-treatment. The patient can use mild makeup to cover the redness and bleeding point and resume the daily activities. However, every patient has different skin, so some might need a day or two to fully recover.

 The treatment makes the skin really sensitive because the microchannels are opened. So it is important to avoid any products that would irritate the skin. Also, the patient should avoid direct sun exposure or use a high SPF. While the skin is recovering, the patient should use only mild makeup and gentle skincare products. It is not recommended to perform strenuous exercises or visit saunas and steam rooms because the skin is swollen after the treatment and can get irritated even more because of the heat or sweat.

HOW MANY DERMAPEN TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?

It all depends on the skin concerns and expected results. Usually, 4 to 8 sessions are required. Each session should be 4 to 6 weeks spaced out.

 

WHEN ARE THE DERMAPEN RESULTS VISIBLE?

 The patient can generally see improvements after the first treatment session. As the sessions progress the results continue to improve until they are fully achieved.

 Once the patient’s skin has healed, the scars get reduced as well as stretch marks and wrinkles. The pores are minimized and the skin is firmer and rejuvenated. The scars and stretch marks are improved permanently, but for maintaining tone and texture the patient may need additional touch-up treatments.

 

CAN DERMAPEN BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

Yes, it can. Dermapen treatment is brilliant for applying different products to the skin. This can be done during or post-treatment. These products get easily and quickly absorbed by the skin and boost the results even further. Most commonly Dermapen is combined with PRP or other growth factors.
