Derma pen, uses a unique electronic mechanism which allows the practitioner to control the intensity of the treatment for the best results. When combined with a highly effective serum and a soothing aftercare cream, the treated area will see significant improvements to the damaged skin.
Derma pen can significantly:
The Derma pen device can be used on any part of the body, however the most popular areas are: forehead; between the eyebrows; nose; around the eyes; cheekbones; cheeks; around the mouth; scar tissue and stretch marks.
Though only very thin, the skin is made up of three layers: epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous. By penetrating the epidermis with very fine small needles, collagen production is increased as the body heals itself.
Though only tiny, each wound will go through the three stages of healing:
When the epidermis in penetrated, the puncture closes in minutes and will heal relatively quickly. Though minute, the wound created causes localised trauma and bleeding encouraging the skin to send healing properties to the site thus stimulating fibroblasts to build new collagen. During the treatment the practitioner may use a serum; this will depend on the clients goals for treatment results. When the skin is punctured serum is spread and absorbed into the surrounding tissue. The serum will have a far greater effect as it is absorbed further into the dermis, replenishing the skin at a deeper level.
The leucocytes (white blood cells) act on the damaged tissue, remove debris and kill bacteria. This reaction produces a surge of activity including Fibroblasts being “instructed” to produce more collagen and more elastin.
A few days after the treatment the epidermal cells (keratinocytes) begin reproducing and the epidermis becomes thicker. Over the following months the skin will progressively tighten as the collagen re-models and skin regains structure.
At Skin IQ we exclusively use derma pen in conjunction with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) to give outstanding results and improvement of skin quality and texture.
