All about Dermapen
DermaPen is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.
DermaPen, unlike earlier roller appliances, uses a sterile, one-use-only needle cartridge inserted into a pen-like device. The fine surgical steel micro-needles are adjustable ranging from 0.25 mm to 2.5 mm in length. These micro-needles penetrate the upper (epidermis) and lower (dermis) strata of the skin at targeted and specific depth, causing controlled microscopic wounds and pin point bleeding. This process elicits the body’s own wound healing response, which results in the release of cellular messengers that in turn increase fibroblast (collagen producing cells) activity.
