Micro needling (also known Derma Pen) induces collagen and is a minimally invasive, non surgical and non ablative procedure for skin rejuvenation. This revolutionary technology involves a treatment whereby a device with small needles is pushed over your face and neck area to create controlled punctures, which force your skin into repair mode. This healing process continues weeks after the treatment. Ideal for acne scars, stretch marks, fine lines and overall rejuvenation for the skin.
*Individual results may vary.
The Derma pen is an FDA approved device that is proven to be less uncomfortable, with minimal to no downtime and provides greater results than a roller device. The added advantage of the pen is that the depth of the needle penetration can be altered during treatment. The tip of the pen is small, allowing it to pass closer to the eyes and nose for a more effective treatment in these areas that are of concern to many patients. So those with a fear of needles shouldn’t discard this technique straight away, as the microneedle length can vary from 0.5 to 3.0 mm, which is incredibly tiny compared to a traditional needle. Also before the micro needling the face is anesthetized. So you feel nothing.
When your skin starts repairing itself it boost your body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which provides that firm plumpness. It also helps improve skin texture and tone, reducing the appearance of scars and stretch marks and creates a more youthful skin tone.
