Our skin sheds over 30,000 dead cells a minute and after every 28 days we have complete new set of skin cells. With all the changes that occur to our face it is harder to control without the correct treatments and products, so it’s beneficial to invest in the long-term health of our skin. One of these treatments is microneedling!
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin treatment that causes minute damage to the surface of the skin. It uses a handheld pen apparatus, which is equipped with needles that vibrate to create tiny, punctures in the epidermis. These punctures are little wounds that break the surface and force the skin into a controlled internal healing process. The process not only encourages the formation of new surface skin cells, but the collagen produced during healing also strengthens the lower level of the dermis.
What does it treat?
The skin works to heal itself internally, which begins production of new collagen and fresh skin cells to replace those that are previously lost or damaged. This results in safely rejuvenated skin suitable for treating mild acne scarring, fine lines, volume loss or pigmentation, which helps your skin, glow.
What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a state of the art micro needling treatment that is classed as the most advanced skin micro needling device. It has twelve needles on the very tip and the Dermapen glides over the skin and its microscopic channels are lightly stamped into the skin simulating a wound healing response. The process of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is significantly more effective than lasers and peels with less side effects and downtime which can get you back up to speed to continue your day as normal.
Dermapen can effectively treat hard to reach places like around the eyes, nose and lips and is ideal for treating: fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and pigmentation.
Can microneedling treat acne scarring?
With acne causing problems possibly permanently to someone’s face, microneedling happens to offer a new solution for people. Microneedling’s puncturing of the skin does not force the skin into trauma yet still prompts the body to create controlled amounts of collagen and skin cells.
Pitted acne scarring is also caused by destroyed collagen and results in the dimple like marks and with microneedling rest assured that this will boost the production line of collagen to help smooth the scars from the inside out and rebuilds the skin in the area.
