Dermapen and Skin Boost Treatments
Would you like to improve you skin tone and reduce any scarring. Are fine lines a problem? Improve your skin tightness and collagen. The dermapen causes minimal dermal damage which means less pain and bleeding in comparison to the dermal roller. The dermapen is easier to manoeuvre around all facial contours. The derma pen is delivered vertically where as dermal roller is not. Therefore the dermapen can penetrate scar tissue without risk of bending. Therefore is less painful than the dermal roller.
How Does The Derma Pen Work?
Works by stimulating natural growth factors in the body to cause skin regeneration called epidermal growth factors. Dermapen is the activity of percutaneous collagen induction also know as collagen induction therapy. It is different from the dermal roller as 0.5mm. 1mm and 2mm derma pens are considered medical needling. Which involves pricking the skin at multiple times to induce the bodies natural wound healing cascade and stimulating remodelling phase by stimulating fiboblasting cells. The benefit of this treatment is that there is no botox involved, it relays on your own natural collagen production. This treatment can be used in addition to botox too and can be used in between botox treatement to improve general skin tightness and skin tone. It can be combined with skin boost products to stimulate collagen further and smooth the skin. Also meostherapy can be added in to treat skin problems such as pigmentation and dark circles. Treatment with meosotherapy or skin boosts will also help with stretch marks and acne scarring.
