DERMAPEN is a revolutionary treatment being offered at BrightonBeauty + Medispa. Electric skin needling is replacing and superseding other dermal rollers on the market.
What is Skin Needling ?
It is a non-invasive procedure used to improve the appearance of wrinkles stretch marks and acne scars performed by using a dermapen device.
How does it work?
Using a flat plate scattered with fine needles an electric mechanism vibrates the needle plate up and down to perform even microscopic perforations into the dermis, creating a controlled micro-inflammation sending natural electro signals to induce the body’s own natural human growth factor. This increases blood circulation to the penetrated areas and at the same time stimulates collagen and elastin production reducing the appearance of wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars and improving the skins texture and tautness.
Whats involved in the procedure?
After assessing the skin with a thorough consultation the face or body area is thoroughly cleansed.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the area for 30mins.
Antithetic is removed thoroughly and skin is wiped with saline solution, Depending on the skin area and condition being treated the needles are set at correct gauge and at appropriate speed, the needling machine is moved across the skin and back again until desired result is achieved. Expect the procedure to be virtually pain free, due to the topical anesthetic. Treatment can take approximately 20-30 minutes depending on size of the area.
What can I expect straight after treatment?
Immediately after treatment the skin will be bright red lasting between 2-12 hours, it feels like a mild sunburn. After 12 hours mineral make-up can be applied.
Is there down time?
Usually 12 hours of mild sunburn sensation and slight redness.
