Microneedling is an effective way to rejuvenate the skin and is suitable for all skin types and ages. This treatment can fade away acne scars, stretch marks and brown spots. It can also boost radiance, plump up the skin and reduce enlarged pores, sagging and wrinkles. The Dermapen makes tiny punctures in the skin, which aid the penetration of active serums. It also stimulates skin renewal and the production of collagen and elastin, responsible for young-looking skin. Dermapen is an FDA-approved device that has been shown to provide greater results and less discomfort than a roller.
You may see results after the first treatment; however, it usually takes 4-6 weeks to see significant changes in your skin.
With Dermapen, your skin may also feel warm and tight and you may experience temporary redness and swelling, a bit like sunburn. This usually subsides within 1-2 days and depends on the needle depth used, your skin concern and skin type. Your therapist will discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
Avoid very hot or cold water, swimming and tanning after your treatment. It is also advisable to use a sun-protection factor (SPF) cream after all treatments. Your therapist will give you more specific advice about what products to use on your skin after microneedling.
