What is Skin Needling?
It involves passing a micro-needling tip over the skin using an auto micro-needling system . The needles penetrate into the second layer of the skin, where it damages the old collagen and triggers the production of new collagen.
The mechanical damage triggered by the needling creates thousands of miniature skin wounds through which vitamin A and C can pass and further assist the collagen induction created by the inflammatory process. The new collagen is formed over 90 days and the results then continue to improve over the next year.
How it works?
Skin needling using Dermapen is a great way to induce collagen. Stimulating collagen helps improve skin texture and scarring, promoting fresh, youthful looking skin. Skin needling is combined with platelet rich plasma to help induce new collagen to improve skin texture (including acne scarring).
What can I expect after a Dermapen treatment?
You will look flushed and pink after the procedure (similar to mild sunburn). Light scabs may form the next day which may take up to 2 weeks to fall off. You must not pick at these scabs. You must avoid any stimulating products such as AHAs, retinol (vitamin A) or any acidic or “active products” for a minimum of 2 days after the treatment.
