Dermapen

Microneedling, skin needling or collagen induction therapy — whatever you call it, it’s a powerful skin rejuvenation technique made even more powerful by the Dermapen. Dermapen uses the world’s leading skin needling technology to stimulate collagen production and create smoother, healthier skin. It reduces fine lines, large pores, acne scarring, stretch marks, pigmentation and other concerns with less downtime and better results than similar devices. To learn more about Dermapen microneedling or to find out if this treatment can give you the results you are hoping for, book a consultation at Kaya Cosmedica today.

WHAT IS DERMAPEN?

The Dermapen is a small, pen-like device containing tiny needles that create micro-channels in the skin. Compared to at-home derma rollers and other professional needling systems, the Dermapen offers many advantages. Needle depth, speed and treatment settings are easily adjusted at the press of a button. The handpiece glides over the skin for increased precision and maximum patient comfort. With the Dermapen’s patent-pending design, there is no drag, no cross-contamination and no fluid backflow, so treatments are safe and hygienic. Microneedling harnesses your body’s natural healing capabilities for rejuvenation without the use of chemicals or lasers.

WHAT AREAS CAN WE TREAT?

Dermapen microneedling is primarily used on the face to treat textural issues and complexion imperfections. The Dermapen is so advanced that it is safe to use in delicate areas, such as around the eyes, nose and lips. In addition to facial concerns, the Dermapen is sometimes used to treat scars or stretch marks in other areas of the body. The adjustable needle depths allow Dr Khinda to tailor your treatment to your individual needs.

BENEFITS OF DERMAPEN

Microneedling has built a devoted following in recent years. With the release of more sophisticated devices like the Dermapen, microneedling is one of the most sought-after skin rejuvenation procedures available today.

  • Safer and more effective than at-home derma rollers
  • Minimal discomfort and downtime
  • Mild side effects that subside quickly
  • Gentler than many chemical peels and laser treatments
  • Enhances absorption of skincare products
  • Increases collagen and elastin production for lasting benefits

CLINICALLY USEFUL FOR

The Dermapen is an effective device for addressing a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Other types of scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation irregularities
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull complexion
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Stretch marks

HOW DOES DERMAPEN WORK?

Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep our skin soft, smooth and supple. As we age, our bodies produce less of these key proteins, which leads to skin laxity and the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Sun exposure, weight fluctuations and childbearing add concerns of their own, such as stretch marks and pigmented spots.

Microneedling triggers an increase in collagen and elastin production by stimulating the body’s healing response. When the Dermapen is applied to the skin’s surface, it inserts small needles vertically into the layer below, creating minuscule wounds. The skin reacts by engaging its healing response. New collagen and elastin are generated to bolster the skin’s supportive structure and remodel the complexion.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT INVOLVE?

At Kaya Cosmedica, we begin your Dermapen treatment by cleansing and sterilising your skin. Dr Khinda will adjust the needle depth and speed to the appropriate levels for your condition, then start the needling process. The Dermapen is not rolled or dragged across your skin — instead, it is moved in a stamping motion while the needles rapidly oscillate in and out. This is safer and more comfortable than the rolling action of a derma roller. The Dermapen does not require skin numbing prior to treatment. Although everyone’s experience is different, most patients tolerate the sensations of a microneedling procedure well.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY DERMAPEN TREATMENT?

The Dermapen has less downtime and fewer aftercare requirements than an aggressive chemical peel or laser treatment. Immediately after the procedure, your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. Your skin may also be red, as though you have a moderate sunburn. These effects are normal and largely subside within a few hours. You may notice slight residual redness after 24 hours, but only in small areas or spots. Dr Khinda will recommend postprocedure skin care to help soothe, calm and protect your skin as the regeneration process begins.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

Results from microneedling are not instant. Your body needs time to produce new collagen and elastin, which triggers the most dramatic changes in your complexion. However, you will likely see some preliminary benefits soon after your treatment. Superficial improvements in the radiance and texture of your skin are usually the first to appear. More profound results occur six to eight weeks after your procedure and the results continue to improve over time.

HOW MANY DERMAPEN TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?

Although you may notice improvements in your skin after one session, the positive effects of Dermapen treatments are cumulative. Treatments can be repeated every four to six weeks until you achieve the results you’re looking for. The periods between sessions allow your skin to heal properly and fill in the micro-channels created by the Dermapen device. Typically, the most significant and longest-lasting results occur after four or more sessions. Dr Khinda may recommend an initial series of treatments based on your unique concerns and skin condition, followed by periodic maintenance treatments to sustain your results.

AM I A COOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPEN MICRONEEDLING?

Dr Khinda will assess your skin to determine whether microneedling with the Dermapen is the right treatment to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Unlike some other rejuvenation therapies, this procedure is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, including darker skin colours. Most people who are in good health can undergo skin needling with minimal risk of adverse effects. Contraindications to Dermapen treatments include skin diseases such as psoriasis or eczema, use of certain medications, a history of keloid scarring and pregnancy.
