Boost collagen and elastin with microneedling
Micro-needling is a treatment that uses tiny needles to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, which are thought of as the “building blocks” of smoother skin. The Dermapen is currently the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
The micro-pen technique can have a positive effect on the appearance of:
- Hyper- and hypo-pigmentation
- Acne scars
- Traumatic scars
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
The micro-needling process takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area you want treated. During the procedure, the pen is gently pressed against the skin, gliding in one direction. The feeling is described by many as similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. When it’s done, you’ll likely notice an immediate glow to your skin. Many patients heal completely within 24 hours, and the positive results can continue to improve for up to 6 months.
