Micro Needling/Dermapen

Dermapen is a device that contains a cartilage with micro size needles. The disposable cartilage is packed in a sterile container. When the cartilage is attached to dermapen, it moves the needles rapidly back and forth on the skin and creates microscopic holes in the skin. These injuries will trigger an immune system response the body, sending out collagen repair cells and fibroblasts. Over a period of weeks these new cells will repair the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, open pores, improve the texture, thickness and complexion of the skin, reduce acne scars, stretch marks and chicken pox scars and will help to tighten the skin to achieve a much healthier skin overall.

Dermapen is relatively painless and treatments are performed after application of an anesthetic cream. The small size of the Dermapen allows treatment in hard to reach areas such as around the eyes, lips, and nose.
