What is dermapen 4 microneedling ?

Dermapen, microneedling is a popular procedure that uses multiple tiny vertical needles to create microchannels deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin fibres. These microchannels are able to carry 80 percent more topical ingredients as well as actives like peptides growth factors or hyaluronic acid deep into the dermis and are absorbed by the underlying cells in the skin

During 2011 dermapen 3 was the first to launch an automated microneedling device to deliver actives and ingredients in a fashion similar to the old microneedling procedure. This procedure was the ultimate technology in the delivery of substances or actives into the skin. Dermapen revolutionized microneedling in 2011 by introducing the dermapen 3

The new Dermapen 4 technology has taken aesthetic treatments to a whole new level. Advanced engineering has forged a technologically advanced breakthrough in microneedling.

This advanced innovative cosmetic pen- the dermapen 4 – is not only faster but is also safer with less drag or pull on the skin and produces less pain and less discomfort. Millons have been spent on research and development to design the ultimate medical device for your convenience

Post Treatment Advice

Do not use oral non steroidal anti – inflammatory agents or cook the skin as this may reduce the efficacy of the treatment

Use only a mild cleanser and hydrating products as the skin will be dry

Microchannels remain open for 48 hours post-needling- app my growth factors, peptides or hyaluronic acid serums during this time and not creams so that you do not block or congest the multitude of microchannels created by the procedure

Dont gym or partake in heat- inducing exercise routines post treatment

Some flaking and peeling can occur especially if the skin is dry before treatment

Do not use harsh scrubs or defoliants to speed up the process

Once the microchannels are closed use a good post barrier repair cream to support the barrier as it normalizes

Resume active ingredients like retinol or AHAs 5 – 7 days post treatment once the skin has settled

Use a melanin inhibiting product if you are prone to hyperpigmentation

Avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week after the procedure and use high factor broad spectrum sunscreen if you need to be outdoors
