WHAT IS THE DERMAPEN TREATMENT?

The Dermapen™ is now widely recognized as the Gold Standard in micro needling technology. Dermapen™ treatment is an advanced, non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles, smoker’s lines, large pores, heal acne, surgical and burn scars as well as rejuvenate and tighten the skin. The Dermapen™ treatment also keeps the epidermis’ integrity full intact while treating the area, which quickens healing time and reduces pain.

HOW DOES THE DERMAPEN TREATMENT WORK?

The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. The micro needles of the Dermapen™ help create new collagen, and elastin (collagenesis), that is then deposited throughout the subcutaneous layer of the skin. In addition, new capillary growth is also a result of the Dermapen™ treatment and it helps improve blood supply to the area. The increased blood flow helps nourish the existing skin and provides a healthy foundation for new skin growth.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Facial rejuvenation: 4-6 treatments at intervals of four weeks;

Acne Scarring: 6-10 treatments at intervals of six weeks; and

Stretch Marks: At least 10 treatments at intervals of six weeks.

The duration of each session depends on the number of areas being treated. Generally though, it takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes for each session.

Surgical scars

What causes a surgical scar?

A surgical scar is a type of injury to the flesh caused by surgery, usually because of an incision that required the modification of all layers. Because a surgeon cannot control all of the factors that determine the appearance of a scar, treatment after the surgical area has properly healed is sometimes necessary.

How can they be treated?

The challenge of treating a surgical scar lies within the matrix of the form of the scar. Historically, scar therapy has been limited in years past. However, the Dermapen’s® unique vertical stamping and depth control makes their method of treating scars superior to other methods. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (11 needles total and sized at thirty-three gauge) penetrate difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.

Treatment Regimen

Scars have altered physiology compared to other skin conditions. Multiple treatments will be needed and will vary depending on the severity and type of scar.

Burn Scars

What causes a Burn Scar or Keloid Scar?

A burn is a type of injury to flesh caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, light, radiation or friction. Most burns affect only the skin (epidermal tissue and dermis). Managing burn injuries properly is important because they are common, painful and can result in disfiguring and disabling scarring, Burn scar contracture refers to the tightening of the skin after a second or third degree burn. When skin is burned, the surrounding skin begins to pull together, resulting in a contracture.

How can a Burn Scar be treated?

The challenge of a burn scar lies within the matrix of all the forms or categories of the scars involving hypertrophic and keloid scars and pigmentation flaws. These scars thicken over time. Burn scar therapy has been historically limited. The Dermapen’s® unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treating burn scars superior to other methods or rollering. With surgical steel integrity, the robust nature of the automated needle tip (eleven (11) needles total and sized at thirty-three guage) penetrate difficult burn scar tissue dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.

Stretch Mark Scars

What causes stretch marks?

According to Wikipedia, stretch marks or striae (singular stria), as they are called in dermatology, are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, and over time can diminish but not disappear completely. Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, muscle building, hormone replacement therapy for transsexuals, etc. Medical terminology for these kinds of markings includes striae atrophicae, vergetures, stria distensae, striae cutis distensae, striae gravidarum (in cases where it is caused by pregnancy), lineae atrophicae, linea albicante, or simply striae.

How can they be treated?

Various treatments are available for the purpose of improving the appearance of existing stretch marks, including laser treatments, dermabrasion, and prescription retinoids. Some cream manufacturers claim the best results are achieved on recent stretch marks; however, few studies exist to support these claims. The use of the Dermapen® uses the bodies natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Dermapen® does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).

The Dermapen® device allows for appropriate treatment needle depth to activate the cascade of fibroblast and growth hormone steps to generate more skin, collagen and elastin for smooth and healthy colored skin. The skin of the epidermis effectively thickens and noticeable smoother and evening of stretch marks is the result.

How many treatments are needed?

Your medical professional can consult you on a prescribed treatment. Most patients see a noticeable difference in just one treatment however 5-6 treatments may be necessary. After 5-6 treatments striae improvement is noticeable with improved texture and appearance of mature.
