Dermapen Microneedling

Dermapen at Tucson Cosmetics

Dermapen Microneedling can help patients who would like to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and acne scars while minimizing pores. Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface of the skin, Dermapen creates very small wound patterns to break old collagen chains that trigger the healing process to smooth the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks.

Dermapen’s sterile, disposable needle tips are adjustable to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for the best result. The vibrating hand piece encourages collagen production, allowing the body to begin healing immediately after the procedure with visible result in up to four weeks.

Dermapen out-performs previous dermal roller technology not only in results, but also in patient experience. The precision of the Dermapen minimizes the effect of the treatment on the tissue surrounding the treatment area much more so than the original system. Round areas, like those around the nose and upper lip, are harder to treat with dermal rollers, whereas the Dermapen’s narrower hand piece can easily treat these areas.

Cosmetic Procedure with Dermapen

The Dermapen was recently awarded the Best Anti Aging device at The Aesthetic Show in Las Vegas 2012.

The Dermapen holds a unique place in today’s aesthetic practice because it can be used alone as well as in combination with most any other treatment. Dermapen is used in combination with many modalities as or in conjunction with light chemical peels, hydrating masks, ultrasonic facial, galvanic treatments, Thermage, phototherapy, platelet rich plasma just to name a few.

The Dermapen will create redness as it draws blood due to the hundreds of micro injuries on the skin. The recommendation would be to use the Dermapen as an important aspect of a true facial Anti Aging protocol where lasers are used but in a regimen. The Dermapen treatment is going to be vital in that it will kick-start the skins healing and corrective properties which will be additionally benefitted by the laser treatment.

Dermapen Platelet rich plasma (PRP)

A PRP (drawn from blood), a cosmetic procedure, is used in conjunction with Dermapen Micro Needling procedure. Both procedures can be used independently, however the combination, or dual modality, of using the Dermapen’s fractional trans-dermal delivery application of PRP enhances the results of both procedures. Dermapen’s automated modality delivers thousands of micro sized injuries to the dermal layer of the skin. These tiny, micro sized, 33 gauge needles vibrate and punch vertically into the skin at speeds of up to 25+ times/sec. This controlled “damage” to the skin harnesses the bodies own injury response to rejuvenate and repair the skin through the proven science of collagen stimulation known as collagen induction therapy (CIT).
The Dermapen treatment is now being combined with the PRP therapy in practices across the world. The PRP treatment is administered first and involves the application of a rich concentration of the patients own platelet rich plasma that is spun down via a centrifuge device. The Dermapen uses the fractionated pattern of micro needles to drive the PRP into the dermal – epidermal junction (DEJ). The Dermapen device allows the practitioner to vary the speed and depth to handle all different areas of the patient’s face and body. The PRP treatment is widely accepted as a very effective treatment and takes advantage of the bodies own powerful growth factors to stimulate healing and rejuvenation. Now when combined with the Dermapen treatment, the PRP therapy has an effective delivery application to easily penetrate the surface of the skin and jump start the rejuvenation process. The treatment is easily administered and there is no clinical downtime for the patient. This treatment is used to help patients with all skin types and is a corrective and preventative therapy to treat fine lines and wrinkles, manage scars from acne or other injuries, improve skin texture and color from melasma presentations, reduce stretch mark appearance and stimulate new collagen growth.
