Dermapen 4

not all pens are equal!

 

HOW MICRO NEEDLING WORKS
​The Dermapen microneedling pen provides an unparalleled response via the fractional delivery of micro needles, creating micro-injuries to the epidermis and dermis.
The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemotaxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes.
he second phase of wound healing involves deposition of collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, and GAGs. The last phase results in tissue remodeling where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening. The body’s ability to heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process.

Why do we need COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)
After the age of 28 the body stops producing collagen in the skin unless it’s made to repair itself
Collagen Induction Therapy procedure works by stimulating your body’s fibroblasts to make new collagen.
This process is a slow process with baby collagen forming and then turning into the more stable and stronger collagen I that forms the structure of the skin
This process will take 8 weeks and studies have shown working for up to 2 years providing you follow the after care advice

SCAR REDUCTION THERAPY (SRT)
The dermapen 4 has been designed for Scar Reduction. It works by releasing old fibrotic scar tissue deep within the skin. Scar tissue is what creates visible scars on the skin’s surface. The treatment will repair the skin naturally, working below the surface in the dermis. This takes time as the new collagen and elastin fibres are formed, softening scars, generating new skin cells and enhancing blood supply. Results can be seen within 6 weeks, and a total of 70-80% improvement of scars.

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that utilizes a specialized instrument designed to “scrape” away from the accumulated dead skin cells and fine vellous hair. 
Dermaplaning also removes up to 3 weeks of dull dry skin giving the skin  a more youthful and healthy glow.

WHAT IS THE DERMAPEN?

It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue & to stimulate skin cells to proliferate.  Unlike rollers that tear the skin as they move access the dermapen enters the skin at 90 degrees and can be adjusted to the region on the face and neck that needs to be targeted. You shouldn’t see a bloodbath over the skin if you do this is counterproductive and the wrong type of collagen will be made and damage to the skin.

WHAT EFFECTS DOES THE DERMAPEN HAVE ON THE SKIN?

The DERMAPEN improves the thickness of the dermis as well as the epidermis. This in return improves skin texture and reduces wrinkles. It also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation. Reduces disfiguring scars & acne scars, stimulates new collagen fibres, improves blood supply and harmonises pigmentation.

HOW IS THE DERMAPEN PROCEDURE PERFORMED

1.The skin is cleansed and exfoliated to help reduce the amount of dryness experienced post treatment .
2. Skin is prepped using chlorhexidine to prevent post infections.
3. Hylafuse is applied to the skin and the dermapen glided over the skin in 4 directions, with the needles penetrating the skin at over 1000 times a second! This part only takes a 6 minutes. We treat the face and neck area.
4. We then apply a beautiful cooling mask with copper peptides,  B5, Aloe Vera, Zinc Copper and Iron, Collagen, Willow bark.
5. We then apply Vitamin Rich repair which contains retinyl propionate, vitamin E, squalene, grape seed oil, resveratrol , aloe vera horsetail lady’s mantle and Gylcerine.
6. The skin is then protected with cover recover which is a thermaregulator to calm and sooth. It contains probiotics hyralonic acid, vitamins A,B,C and E. This acts as a second skin and contains silcons which protect from the environment

CAN THE DERMAPEN BE PERFORMED ON ANY SKIN COLOUR?

Yes-Since Dermapen does not use thermal heat (unlike IPL & Lasers) it is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colours. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

HOW OFTEN CAN THE DERMAPEN PROCEDURE BE REPEATED?

For Collagen Induction Therapy we recommend to start with 3 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 6 to 8 weeks between treatments. For Scar Reduction Therapy an average of 3 to 5 treatments are recommended, with an improvement of 70-80%.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF A DERMAPEN PROCEDURE?DOES IT HURT?

There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.
The procedure is not painful and is over very quickly. With the award winning design the minute vibrations trick the skin in feeling no pain so just feels scratchy.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS OF POST-OP INFECTIONS?

Since the tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and provided the procedure is done under clinical conditions, post-op infections are very unlikely.

WHAT IS THE DOWN TIME AFTER A DERMAPEN TREATMENT?

The skin should be treated as a wound for 48 hours while the inflammatory phase of the skin is active. During this time you will feel sunburnt and dry. Redness will fade after this time although neck may be a little tender. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend healing minerals like zinc , peptides or hyaluronic acid after the procedure. Sunscreen must be worn religiously spf30+ and reapplied twice a day especially in the first 8 weeks while the new collagen is being formed.
Failure to wear sunscreen will result in the new collagen being destroyed!

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID ON MY SKIN?

To ensure the right healing environment, for 3 days DO NOT use AHA’s (Glycolic Acid), Retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients.

WHAT SHOULD I USE ON MY SKIN AFTER THE DERMAPEN TREATMENT?

An Anti-Inflammatory Cleanser to soothe, Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate, Copper to help heal, Zinc to help heal but also to protect. Extra mositursiers and sunblock ( physical sun block is better.
