Micro-needling with the “Dermapen3”

What is Micro-Needling and how does it work?

Micro-Needling is a procedure where a hand held electrical device known as the “Dermapen3” is passed over an area of skin; the ”Dermapen3” has 11 minute needles which penetrate into the underlying skin. This procedure does not remove the top layer of skin but forms a controlled injury to the skin. This initiates the skin’s natural wound healing process which works to replenish collagen and elastin fibres which may have been rendered ineffective as a result of aging or injury to the skin. This new growth results in the formation of thicker and plumper skin which ultimately reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars and other prominent texture changes.

 

What is Micro-Needling used to treat?

This procedure increases the thickness of the dermal layer of skin as well as the epidermis which improves the skins texture and as a result limits the appearance of many skin defects. For example:

  • Irregular pigment (hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation) or colour in the skin.
  • Sun damaged areas of skin.
  • Scars- it is particularly effective at treating acne scars it can be used to elevate the depressedscar tissue due to new blood capillary formation.
  • Wrinkling and fine lines
  • Stretch marks

 

How long does it take to work?

Depending upon the needle length used and your skin’s response to treatment, results can vary. Immediately after treatment, you will experience erythema (redness), bruising and mild swelling which will subside after approximately 1-3 days. Within the first week, you may experience a natural exfoliation or dryness. After 1 week you may notice your skin’s texture and tone has improved. Pigmented areas may show improvement from the 3rd week post treatment. From 6 weeks onwards you may experience a visible improvement in fine lines and wrinkles. Most people need 4 to 6 sessions separated by 4 to 6 weeks apart to get good results.
