Dermapen is a class 1 FDA approved fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pore size, and improve surgical and acne scars.
The Dermapen uses a unique spring-loaded disposable tip that uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices, all while causing less epidermal damage.
The automated needling motion minimizes pain and discomfort, while increasing the effectiveness of treatments by promoting an even absorption of topical into the skin. Dermapen offers exceptional results, is easy to use and has better precision and control and is a fraction of the cost of other fractional laser therapy. For optimal results 3-5 treatments are recommended four weeks apart. There is no down time with Dermapen treatment.
A Dermapen treatment consists of a topical anesthetic cream applied to the area to be treated. The esthetician/nurse will make three passes with the Dermapen over the area to be treated. Dermapen wounding stimulates the healing and debris processes of the body. Post treatment you will have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual.. This is normal and will subside within 1-2 hours and you will normally recover within 24 hours.
