How Does the Dermapen Work?

The Dermapen is an automated micro-needling system with a disposable tip cartridge that uses 12 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. This cares micro-injuries to the skin stimulating new collagen and elastin production. These micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes.

How Long Are Dermapen Treatments?

The length of the treatment will depend on the area being treated. A typical treatment lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Typically, a patient will see results after the first treatment. Lasting and more significant results will occur after 4 to 6 treatments (spaced 4-6 weeks apart). A patient’s skin will continue to improve over the next 6-12 months after a course of treatments and when combined with the recommended post treatment care.

Generally there is no downtime, but patient’s may experience facial redness for 12-48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
