Dermapen is the latest advanced skin needling therapy system available in Australia. With Dermapen, clinics can now provide clients with a more effective skin needling treatment.
Dermapen is much safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional dermal rollers, because of its unique vertical needling technology.
The multi-speed function and adjustable needle depths allows the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products. On the other hand, it reduces pain and patient downtime.
Dermapen has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin.
Treatments promote scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
Dermapen can also effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.
At Face Today we have combined our dermapen treatments with some of our existing treatments to achieve more advanced and satisfactory results
Skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to heal itself after an injury. Right after the skin encounters any physical damage, it immediately eliminates the damaged tissue to replace it with new, healthy skin. Dermapen® induces small, controlled areas of damage to trigger the production of new tissue growth without the risks of scarring resulting in smoother and firmer skin.
Using multiple needles to vertically penetrate the surface layers of skin, treatment with Dermapen® allows the body to begin the wound-healing process which breaks up older collagen chains to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin. The beauty of the Dermapen® treatment is that it allows topical serums, regen prp to penetrate deeper. This enables one to achieve luminous skin or the management of specific skin condition such as facial pigmentation, acne, scarring or stretch marks.
The most common technique uses a roller with needles spread across the cylindrical treatment applicator. This type of device is rolled across the treatment area. The nature of the rolling movement creates unnecessary epidermal damage as the needles pull the tissue as they leave the skin. Dermapen®’s unique applicator is completely vertical, minimizing unnecessary injury to the treatment area. The carefully controlled, disposable needle applicator only moves in and up-and-down motion, meaning less recovery time and a more comfortable experience for patients.
The size and design of Dermapen® also allows it to be used in tight or round areas where a dermal roller could not fit like the crease of the nose, along the upper lip, and across the chin. Dermapen® works well on any skin tone and type meaning it can be a safe alternative to lasers for those with darker skin tones.
Each patient’s healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area and in rare cases minor pin-point bleeding depending on the depth of the needle penetration (Dermapen®’s disposable treatment applicator is adjustable). Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.
Each person’s skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring will require up to 8 sessions. Most people require between 4-8 treatments at monthly intervals.
Also called semi-permanent tattooing or micro pigmentation, this procedure involves the insertion of naturally improved pigments into the upper layer of the dermis to instantly improve the appearance. Every treatment is TAILOR MADE.
Depending on the depth of treatment decided by your dermatologist, numbing creams can be used to increase patient comfort. Dermapen®’s applicator can be adjusted to a length of .5mm to 2.5mm based on the skin condition. Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those undergoing treatment with the full 2.5mm are offered numbing creams as an option for treatment.
