Dermapen® is a mechanical device that has 11 micro needles that vertically “stamp” the skin in a controlled fashion. The action of this micro needle device harnesses the body’s own healing mechanisms to rejuvenate the skin – adding new collagen that ultimately reduces fine lines and wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. The treatment is performed by our aesthetician, Elise Adelman, and requires only 1/2 – 1 hour of time under topical crème anesthesia. The treatment has virtually no down time.
In our office, we also utilize the Dermapen® to aid in injecting growth factors into the skin. During the treatment a thin layer of Regenica® is placed on the skin allowing the micro needles to force the agent into the upper layers of the dermis where it can have the most effect. The use of Regenica® further stimulates the bodies healing mechanisms enhancing the effect of the treatment.
Following the treatment, Elise will place a calming mask over the face which will sooth the area and minimize any redness. The next day you will notice your skin will feel clean, tighter and look healthier. The effects are cumulative and typically we recommend a series of 3-5 Dermapen® treatments with each separated by 3-4 weeks.
Our practice has the most advanced technology covering both surgical and non surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation. Consider a complimentary consultation with Dr. Douglas Stevens to discuss Dermapen® or the many other treatments we have available to make you look your best.
