P1_0818-1024x683Microneedling Pen is a medical device that is used to treat fine lines, acne scars, scars, stretch marks, and to improve the skin texture and tone. During the procedure tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injures to the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The benefits of dermapen are wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging.

Downtime:

Day 1: Severity of erythema will depend on how aggressive the treatment was performed.
Day 2: A red or pink hue persists, similar to a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day.
Day 3: Skin can be pink or simply remain normal in color. Swelling subsides.

Acne scars

P1_0812-1024x683The Microneedling treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the acne scars. The micro needles of the Microneedling create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen by Nutec keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain.

How many treatments?

Your medical professional should consult on medical treatment. While each patient is different and conditions will vary, the typical treatment regimen will consist of 5-6 treatments.

Stretch marks scars

The use of the Microneedling uses the bodies natural solution for unsightly stretch marks. New collagen growth and stimulation is more effective for reducing and fading stretch marks. The Microneedling does this through Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
The Microneedling device allows for appropriate treatment needle depth to activate the cascade of fibroblast and growth hormone steps to generate more skin, collagen and elastin for smooth and healthy colored skin. The skin of the epidermis is noticeably smoother and evens stretch marks as a result.

How many treatments are needed?

Your medical professional can consult you on a prescribed treatment. Most patients see improvement with just one treatment, however 5-6 treatments may be necessary. After 5-6 treatments, striae is noticeably improved in texture, and appearance of mature, white striae in skin types I-IV. Four weeks

Anti- wrinkle/anti-aging

The Microneedling delivery provides unparalleled via fractional delivery of needles micro injuries into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the normal physiology of skin. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes. The second phase of wound healing invloves deposition of collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, and GAG’s. The last phase results in tissue remodeling where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process.
