What is DERMAPEN?
Dermapen Microneedling systematically creates micro-punctures in the skin so the body responds in a natural way by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime.
How does DERMAPEN work?
The Dermapen penetrates and vibrates the skin at a speed of 108 per second, making 1296 micro channels per second. By creating these micro-punctures in the skin, it stimulates collagen production, tightens pores, improve muscle tone and reduces fine lines and wrinkles Micro needling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.

* refine pores
*(Results may vary person to person)
Treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. We recommend starting with 3 treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. Results can be seen from one to eight weeks after treatment. Typically, you will see results after your first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4-6 treatments.
