Dermapen is a micro needling treatment that gives excellent results. The device works by stimulating the skin to produce collagen and elastin. It is an advanced version of the dermaroller and delivers far superior effects. A Dermapen treatment can help improve scars left by acne, stretch marks, wrinkles, open pores, fine lines and the general texture of the skin. It is a negligibly invasive therapy, with minimal downtime and requires only basic aftercare.
The device, which as its name suggests, looks and is held like a pen. It sends many tiny punctures into the skin every second. Not only does this generate the production of elastin and collagen, it also regulates several skin functions, and as a result healthy new skin replaces dead and damaged cells.
The Dermapen is far more popular with patients than its predecessor the dermaroller, as apart from the results are superior, the process is less painful.
Depending on the results you wish to achieve, you may require more than one treatment, but normally a maximum of three treatments will be sufficient for any condition.
Before the procedure, Sheridan will apply topical anaesthetic to the skin to make sure the process is virtually painless. The Dermapen is then applied to the face in various directions.
Once the pen has done its job, a cooling gel is applied to the skin. In the days following your treatment, you may experience some dryness or flaking of the treated areas. This is a normal response as the micro-needling process enhances cellular turnover and as a result clears away old dead skin cells.
Most patients see noticeable improvement after just one Dermapen treatment, and the results become more noticeable over the following weeks.
After a Dermapen session, you are advised to avoid direct sunshine for a week.
