Unlike earlier needle rollers, Dermapen® uses a sterile, one-use-only needle cartridge inserted into a pen-like device. The fine surgical steel microneedles are adjustable ranging from 0.25 to 2.5 mm in length.
These microneedles penetrate the upper (epidermis) and lower (dermis) layers of the skin at targeted and specific depth, causing controlled microscopic wounds and pin point bleeding. This process kick starts the body’s own wound healing response, which results in the release of cellular messengers that in turn increase fibroblast (collagen producing cells) activity.
Microneedling for Stretch Marks
We all know microneedling reverses damage and signs of aging on your face, but did you know it can also be used to eliminate the appearance of stretch marks? Microneedling penetrates deep within the skin to boost the body’s healing process. This boost stimulates collagen and elastin production to visibly reduce unwanted stretch marks and leave your skin looking smoother than ever.
