Dermapen™ Micro-Needle skin therapy is a multi-function treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect. This treatment is most commonly used to combat scarring, enlarged pores, lines and wrinkles, loose and non-elastic skin, eye-bags and sun damage and age spots.
This micro-needling treatment is based on the natural rejuvenating power of the skin. Shortly after any injury to the human skin, old and damaged skin tissue dissolves and is replaced by new cells. The gentle, controlled needling method used in the Dermapen™ Micro-Needle skin therapy induces this organic self-repair mechanism on a microcosmic scale. The thin needles are used to gently penetrate the skin and create micro-injuries that trigger the synthesis of new collagen. This method is extremely effective and is hugely popular with clients who prefer a rejuvenation method involving significantly less epidermal damage than alternative treatments.
The reduced intensity from Dermapen™ causes less downtime than a deeper treatment, whilst still achieving a youthful complexion.
Skin needling is effective in treating age concerns such as lines, wrinkles and pigmentation, scars stretch marks and pitted acne scarring, and improving skin texture and tone. This treatment is not suitable for those who are pregnant or lactating, those with skin concerns such as Rosacea, Psoriasis or Eczema or those who have recently had facial fillers. Your experienced aesthetic practitioner will assess your suitability for this treatment at your initial consultation.
After your treatment your skin will be red and flushed with an appearance similar to moderate sunburn. It may be that you also experience skin tightness and sensitivity to the area but this will diminish within a few hours following treatment and after 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. Your aesthetician will give you after care instructions following your treatment.
You will see visible results for skin rejuvenation at between 6-8 weeks after your procedure and the results continue to improve over time. Your skin naturally heals itself every 45 days so with micro-needling stimulation changes will be fast. At Cadogan Cosmetics we recommend a course of DermaPen sessions for optimum results though improvement is noticeable after just one treatment.
This treatment at Cadogan Cosmetics is very safe and effective. Any side effects experienced with the DermaPen usually subside within 24-48 hours and may include erythema, stinging, itching, skin tightness. It is minimally invasive with minimal downtime and requires only simple after care.
Micro needling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types and there is no risk hyperpigmentation as the melanocytes and epidermis stay intact during skin needling.
