Hi Guys, Aisling again! Today I’m exploring the results you can expect to achieve from the dermapen! Not sure what the dermapen is? It’s a handheld device used to carry out in-clinic micro needling. Micro needling is a procedure whereby needles are ran over an area in order to promote your bodies natural healing ability. When this happens, your body stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in a multitude of benefits.
Havana Skin Clinic recently shared a lot of content on everything dermapen and the results that you can expect to achieve from it. Here’s a snippet from one of their recent blogs that I think you might find useful.
“How does the Dermapen work
The Dermapen stimulates collagen and elastin naturally by causing controlled injury to the epidermis of the skin. There is no filler or botox, its all completely naturally stimulated!!
The Dermapen consists of two parts which are the electronic handle and the needle. Each needle comes in a new pack so make sure that no matter where you go, you check that it is a new, clean needle being used. It is very important that you get your own, new needle and that it is not being shared with anyone else.
With the dermapen we would recommend going for either 1 or 3 treatments depending on the condition of your skin. Three treatments is most popular as it equates to 1 treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.”
But what are the results like? If you’re an active reader of my blogs, you’ll know that I’m simply obsessed with at home micro needling and I have to be honest the results are similiar to those achieved by the dermapen only on a bigger scale. You can expect the results in whatever your skins concerns are to be better as the needles are deeper and will generate a better result. The downtime however is longer. In fact with at home micro needling, there is practically no down time.
If you are getting this treatment, expect smoother and more refined skin. Post treatment there is also a visible reduction of fine lines and acne scars. This is due to the skin tightening and remodeling effects of the micro needling treatment.
If you get the treatment done you will be quite red afterwards. After 1 day you will be a little patchy-red. After 2- 3 days the skin will return to its natural state. During the first week post treatment we would recommend that you wear minimal make-up. We also advise clients to be prepared for some flaking and dryness in the face. This can be solved by using a moisturiser and an enzyme masque.”
