,SKIN REJUVENATION-DERMA PEN
Advanced Skin Needling.....technology uses multiple needles that vertically pierce the skin with an automatic vibrating function. when moved across the skin's surface it stimulates natural collagen reproduction, whilst allowing fine channels to be created in the skin. The channels can carry up to 80 percent more topical nutrients, allowing for the treatment delivery deep into the skin's Fibroblasts to feed the underlying cells found in the dermis and basal layer. This increased absorption of active ingredients into the skin creates stimulated repair and faster resurfacing results.
Advanced skin needling promotes scar-less healing and the deposition of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments but without the downtime. It also is more effective than most microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, the dermapen or dermal stamp, causes less trauma and has minimal epidermal skin damage, therefore reducing pain and discomfort, and making it a safer more effective treatment. The disposable needles eliminate risk of cross contamination , whilst adjustable needle depths allow for the treatment tailored to your individual need. The Derma pen is so advanced, that it is even suitable and safe to use in delicate and hard to reach areas such as around the eyes and lips and on the nose.
Q. How many treatments are recommended for rejuvenation, acne scarring and stretch marks? (General guide)
A. Rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments , 4 weeks apart
Acne scarring: 6 treatments , 6 weeks apart
Stretch marks: 10 treatments 4-6 weeks apart
Q. Should i prepare my skin before having a Derma pen treatment?
A. For optimal results we recommend a period of effective active treatment creams such as Medik8 Retinol, Vitamin A, Medik8 Vitamin C to allow the skin's strength to build up (especially for thin or delicate areas). Continue to use these recommended solutions after the treatments.
Q. How long should it take before I start to see results?
A.Typically you will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after the 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). Your skin will improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care, especially with an active skincare like Medik8.
Q. Is there any down time after the treatments?
A. Generally no, but you may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. Application of a breathable camouflage will seal the skin and cover any redness for an immediate return to work.
Q. Is the treatment painful? A. For minimum needle depths dermapen treatments are painless. Treatments over 0.5mm deep, a topical anaesthesia cream is applied for 15-40 minutes before treatment and will render the treatments pain free.
Q. How soon after filler injections can I have a Dermapen treatment
A. It's recommended to leave at least 1 month after filler injections so that any post treatment bruising from the fillers can settle. Or have your dermapen treatment 1-2 days before having fillers injected.
