Dermapen or micropunction therapy
What is the Dermapen system?
The Dermapen is a device of micro-needles that works to affirm, lift and rejuvenate the skin.
It is an electronic device approved by the FDA that uses multiple fine needles vertically to perforate the skin, at a certain depth for each area and each pathology to be treated, causing a stimulus that will result in the production of collagen.
It is a treatment to promote the production of the patient’s own collagen (autologous collagen). It is effective in reducing fine lines, wrinkles, minimizes stretch marks, scars and acne marks.
It is an ideal treatment for the improvement of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks located in any area of the body.
The depth of the needle can be adjusted during the course of the procedure to accommodate the different treatment areas and can be easily maneuvered around the facial contours and delicate areas, such as the eyes, nose and mouth.
It is a therapy without the usual pain and discomfort of other treatments, it also allows a better absorption of drugs or substances, such as PRP, hyaluronic acid and peptides in the skin, which improves the results.
Each session lasts between 30-60 minutes. It is done in the clinic and on an outpatient basis.
Previously, the area to be treated is covered with an anesthetic ointment that leaves the area unresponsive.
Mild redness for 12-24 hours. There will be a gradual improvement of the skin by increasing the new collagen that has been created after the stimulation of the secretory cells.
From 3-5 sessions, which can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
HOW DERMAPEN WORKS IN DIFFERENT ZONES
Dermapen is a treatment that helps to improve old scars and imperfections of the skin, restoring collagen and elastin through a natural healing process. Ultrafine needles, with which multiple cutaneous punctures are made that induce a healing response of the skin producing new collagen and elastin. This new collagen and elastin improves the quality and texture of the skin, making it feel smoother and firmer and helping erase unsightly scars.
Its active ingredients exert an immediate tensor effect on the skin, retracting the fibroblasts and stimulating the production of collagen. It acts as a stabilizer and antioxidant of the cell membrane, protecting it from the damage caused by free radicals. It favors the regeneration of fibroblasts and therefore helps in the recovery of the skin. The result is a reduction of wrinkles, improving the firmness of the skin and increasing its elasticity.
Acts against all types of acne, both inflammatory and non-inflammatory. It regulates and diminishes pimples, regulates excess fat and sebum, eliminates dead skin and bacteria and provides a greater anti-inflammatory effect. Activates the formation of new fibroblasts, recovers the marks and depressions caused by acne, producing new collagen and increasing the production of elastin. Its keratolytic action helps to restore the appearance and tone of the skin and to normalize its problems.
The treatment of facial spots is, in many cases, a real challenge for the professional. It requires an accurate initial assessment and a detailed study since its treatment depends on the origin and situation of the same. Dermapen combined with other techniques inhibits the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme that intervenes in the synthesis of melanin or melanogenesis. The action of its active principles reduces hyperpigmentation, achieving luminosity and normalizing the tone of the skin. Helps regenerate and soften the skin while decreasing wrinkles. Treat all signs of dark spots. Decreases the excess production of melanin (hyperpigmentation) that causes the appearance of melasma, chloasma and solar lentigen.
Main indications of the Dermapen:
- Wrinkles and fine skin density
- Hypertrophic, keloid, post acne and postsurgical scars
- Skin flaccidity
- Solar damage
- Stretch marks
- Alopecia (baldness)
