Microneedling

More About Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure that creates small punctures and the skin responds by creating collagen and building new skin cells. It helps with a variety of skin problems such as:

  • Acne
  • Pigmentation
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin texture
  • Pore appearance
  • Stretch marks

Even More About Microneedling (I need to reword everything here)

There are a variety of levels of penetration of a dermapen:

Light penetration opens the skin long enough for the introduction of specific treatment serums. Since most product molecules are too large to cross the skin barrier, they can only be minimally effective. The DermaPen opens the skin for a few minutes and this allows a huge increase of product penetration – your product ingredients can then reach beneath the surface where they will do the most good.Treatment serums can be selected for skin lightening, hydration, texture and pore tightening.

Mid penetration depths can have a very positive impact on superficial sun damage and light scarring to improve skin texture and tone and a visible improvement in pore size appearance.

Deeper levels of penetration can improve acne scars, burn scars, stretch marks and tighten skin and soften wrinkles.

DermaPen reduces the risk of post treatment pigmentation that is more prevalent with laser heat for ethnic skin (Patients will still need to use sun protection and avoid heat exposure while in the recovery phase.)

Depending on the treatment goal, you can expect to see results immediately for product introduction benefit to 4 to 6 months for scarring.
