What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a very advanced skin rejuvenation therapy system that uses a pen-like tool with 11 fine 33-gauge needles inserted vertically into the skin. Micro-needles in the Dermapen make a series of tiny channels in the skin.
These channels trigger the body’s natural healing process and make more collagen, the main structural protein in the skin. As the body produces more collagen, the skin gets better, and certain flaws are fixed at the cellular level. Results will show you skin that looks young and healthy, to believe it!
Dermapen can also help eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, tighten and lift the skin, treat acne scars and stretch marks, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Dermapen Work?
The idea behind skin needling is that the skin can heal itself when it gets hurt by things like cuts, burns, and other abrasions. When we get hurt, our skin breaks down the damaged tissue and makes room for new tissue.
Skin needling lets the skin’s self-repair system be turned on in a controlled way by making tiny “injuries” in the skin. This causes the skin to have new collagen, but permanent scarring is no risk. The result is skin that is smoother, firmer, and looks younger.
How Does The Treatment Feel?
Depending on how deep your provider wants to go with the treatment, numbing creams can be used to make you more comfortable. Depending on how your skin is, you can change the length of the Dermapen applicator from 0.5mm to 2.5mm. People who get treatment with a shorter needle will only feel tickling. In contrast, people who get treatment with a full 2.5mm needle can get numbing creams.
What Can It Treat?
Dermapen microneedling is most often used on the face to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. Still, you can also use it on other body parts to treat things like stretch marks and scars. Let’s look at some of the reasons why you might want to use a Dermapen:
• To make a scar look less noticeable: After a wound heals and leaves a spot, the body acts as if the area is back to normal. Microneedling with a Dermapen can puncture scar tissue and cause the skin to make new, scar-free skin grow in its place.
• To lessen the look of stretch marks: The body doesn’t see stretch marks as something that needs to be healed as it does with scars. Microneedling with a Dermapen over stretch marks can start the healing process and make new skin grow.
• To lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles: When you cut your skin with a Dermapen, elastin, and collagen are released. This causes the skin to tighten and thicken, making fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable. So, microneedling with a Dermapen can be considered an anti-aging treatment.
Benefits of Dermapen
Dermapen micro-needling has many benefits besides preventing aging and getting rid of scars, such as:
• Reduces the size of pores
• Tightens the skin
• Treats hair loss problems like alopecia
• Helps the skin absorb products better
How is Dermapen Different From Other Microneedling Techniques?
The most prevalent method employs a roller with needles dispersed throughout a cylindrical treatment applicator. The treatment area is traversed by rolling this type of apparatus. As the arrows leave the skin, the nature of the rolling motion causes unnecessary epidermal damage due to the tissue tearing caused by the hands.
The innovative applicator of Dermapen is totally vertical, hence minimizing unwarranted skin damage. The highly controlled, disposable needle applicator only moves up and down, resulting in shorter recovery periods and more comfortable patient experiences.
The size and shape of Dermapen allow it to be used in tight or confined locations where a dermal roller would not be able to reach. Places such as the nasal crease, along the upper lip, and across the chin. Dermapen is effective on all skin types and tones, making it a safe alternative to laser treatments for individuals with darker skin tones.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
Each individual’s skin problem is unique and requires individualized therapy. Mild wrinkles and fine lines may improve after a single treatment. However, severe skin disorders such as acne scars may require multiple sessions. The required number of therapy sessions will be decided during the consultation.

Who Would Benefit Most From Dermapen?
Dermapen microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment and is therefore acceptable for most patients if they are in excellent condition. However, patients taking acne medication should consult their primary care physician to ensure appropriate treatment. Pregnant women are also discouraged from receiving Dermapen therapy.
Dermapen microneedling has no serious adverse effects and is appropriate for persons who wish to keep an active lifestyle. Mild bruising may develop after the treatment. It is best to get away from direct sunlight for a week and use sunblock. After three days, bruising and redness should diminish.
