DERMAPEN MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT IN LONDON
Dermapen micro-needling is an advanced nonsurgical cosmetic procedure used to treat a wide variety of skin concerns including reducing the appearance of wrinkles, smokers’ lines, large pores, acne and burn scars. It can also be used for regulating skin pigmentation and treating sun damage.
The dermapen micro-needling treatment is able to achieve skin which is tighter, brighter and refreshed. Dermapen is now favoured by cosmetic experts around the world, after having proved its efficiency and effectiveness, as well as flexibility in how it is used.
How does dermapen micro-needling work?
As the micro Dermapen needles penetrate your skin, they cause microscopic depressions. A topical anaesthetic will be administered prior to treatment, usually 30 minutes before, to ensure the treatment is painless. A numbing cream may also be used if a patient has particularly sensitive skin. This means that you will hardly feel any pain as the needles puncture through the skin’s surface. In the process, the production of amino acids that repair your skin is stimulated and released.
- Reduce the appearance of a scar: After the skin heals a wound and forms a scar, the body acts as though the area has been returned to normal. Dermapen micro-needling can puncture the scar tissue and stimulate the skin to replace the damaged skin with new, unscarred skin.
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks: Like scarring, the body does not treat stretch marks as something that needs to be healed. Dermapen micro-needling over stretch marks can initiate healing and promote the growth of new skin.
- Minimise fine lines and wrinkles: The elastin and collagen induction, caused by wounding the skin with a dermapen causes skin to tighten and thicken, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermapen micro-needling can, therefore, be considered an anti-aging treatment.
