Dermapen improves skin quality, provides firmness and creates a younger and more energetic skin. Skin needling is one of the most recent treatments in skin beauty treatments. Dermapen, which aims to increase the quality of the skin by eliminating the problems such as fine lines, tiny touches, skin color inequality, is getting help from the skin’s own means. Micro needling technique is used in Dermapen application. In micro needling technique, tiny holes are drilled on the skin and the skin is aimed to heal itself. Thus, the skin’s produced collagen repairs the skin, resulting in smoother skin.
What is micro needling?
Micro needling has gained popularity over the past decade because it provides a simple treatment for the skin with minimal recovery time. Micro needling is a trackless and relatively painless method used to treat UV damage and skin wounds over the years. With small needles, the skin is damaged and the quality of the skin increases, the skin becomes firm.
Anesthetic cream applied to the area where the dermapen will be applied and the skin is numbed. Then Dermapen heading is applied to the applied area. Micro needling is a preferred application in cases such as skin resurfacing, scar treatment, wrinkles and tightness. Dermapen aims to increase skin quality by supporting collagen production under the skin.
How is the application made?
Make-up residues on the skin are removed before application and the skin is disinfected. Pure hyaluronic acid is applied to the area where dermapen will be applied. Thanks to the ultra-thin micro needles (0.02 mm) of the Dermapen device that quickly enters and exits the skin perpendicular to the skin, the healing mechanisms of the skin are triggered by opening microscopic channels on the skin surface. After the procedure, a soothing peptide mask is applied. With the Dermapen process, which takes about 30-40 minutes, “collagen” and “elastin” synthesis, which are indispensable for the tightness and elasticity of the skin, are provided and blood circulation is increased. This method, which is recommended as a minimum of 4 sessions with an interval of 4 weeks, can be repeated at times deemed appropriate by the physician.
The application is made with a pencil head covered with micro needles as small as 0.1 mm in diameter. The roller at the end of the pen rotates, creating a massage feeling on the skin. It minimizes the upper epidermal layer, creating a large number of micro-incisions in the skin, but more microscopically to the dermal layer. Injury and tiny bleeding creates a wound healing purpose on the skin. This increased production of collagen and elastin (elastic fibers) creates a smooth texture on the skin.
Does Dermapen application hurt?
Micro needling is usually done using topical anesthetic cream and can take 10-20 minutes depending on the size of the treated area. Ideally, the skin should be pretreated with suitable skin care products that can improve skin regeneration, such as retinoid (vitamin A) creams and antioxidants such as vitamin C. Minor bleeding may occur in patients after the procedure, this is normal. Redness and swelling on the face goes into a few days.
