What Is Microneedling with Dermapen?
Micro-needling or collagen induction therapy creates a controlled injury in the skin using micro-needles to create small channels in the skin which helps stimulate collagen and elastin production. This treatment addresses acne scars, enlarged pores, loose skin, and wrinkles, resulting in overall improvement in the quality of your skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Because this treatment is effective for a wide range of skin problems, practically anyone could be a good candidate for it. You are a good candidate for microneedling with Dermapen if you need treatment for scars, wrinkles, or other skin impurities.
People with recurring skin issues such as acne, infections, or wounds must resolve these conditions before undergoing the procedure.
During your consultation, you will be pre-assessed to ensure that you get the most out of your microneedling treatment. A physical examination of your skin will be performed to evaluate your concerns. You will discuss your complete medical history, including any existing illnesses, previous treatments, and current medications.
To begin, the patient’s face will be cleansed to remove any chemicals that would interfere with the procedure. Then, numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to alleviate any discomfort during the treatment.
A Dermapen will then be used to induce microinjuries in the tissues. The patient might experience skin tightness that feels similar to being sunburned, but it will pass quickly.
Ideal regimens are 4-6 treatments over a duration of 2-6 months. Each treatment is done approximately 4-5 weeks apart. Dermapen can be a great complement to chemical peels, IPL, and laser skin tightening.
