Noticeable scars from surgery or acne breakouts can have a devastating effect on your confidence and self-esteem. It’s unfortunate then that they are also notoriously difficult to hide, never mind get rid of. And maybe you thought your scars were a permanent feature …
But they don’t have to be.
Microneedling is a relatively new procedure that promises a simple and highly effective way to erase scars from your face forever. Within days of your first skin needling session, your skin could appear smoother and less discoloured.
You’ll be longing to submit your very own skin needling before and after results! If this sounds too good to be true, keep reading to learn how microneedling works and see if it’s the right fit for you.
How Does Face Needling Help in Removing Scars?
Of all skin woes, scars are some of the most stubborn and hard to conceal. Dermapen Treatments are now delivering hope for a smooth, flawless complexion in an ingenious way. Dermapen Treatments repair the scars by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
But what’s the science behind this radically effective cosmetic procedure?
Skin needling therapy or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) was developed in the 90s. The early pioneers used tattoo guns, stamps, rollers and even medical procedure requiring anaesthetic to achieve the same results you can now enjoy with minimal downtime and pain.
In 2010, our CEO and founder, Stene Marshall, developed the world’s first Dermapen and the microneedling landscape changed forever.
What’s a Dermapen Treatment for Scars?
Dermapen is a device used primarily for skin needling. The tool features up to 16 ultra-sharp, strong and fine needles that create micro-injuries on the top layer of the skin. For scars, depths of up to 3mm can be reached, which then triggers the body to produce more rejuvenating collagen, which flattens or plumps the scars.
At the same time, specialty Dp Dermaceuticals™ skincare products are infused into the skin to support the body’s natural healing process and reduce visible redness or discolouration.
Dermapen Microneedling Treatments are so popular (3 million treatments and counting) due to the minimal downtime and safety of the natural procedure. When treating scars with skin needling, results can be further enhanced with ÜBER MD Peel and topical application of SSSCAR™.
Can Skin Needling Be Used to Treat All Types of Scars?
Dermapen Treatment Protocols set Authorised Treatment Providers up with the exact procedures and techniques to use to achieve the best results when microneedling atrophic and hypertrophic scars.
Atrophic & Acne Scars
These are the types of scars you typically see after severe or ongoing acne. They present as pitted, deep indentations. Dermapen Treatments can successfully reduce the appearance of mild to severe atrophic scars.
Hypertrophic & Keloid Scars
Hypertrophic scars, on the other hand, are raised above the rest of the skin. In the case of contracture scars, like burns, they may be both raised in some places and indented in others. Dermapen Treatments can successfully reduce the appearance of mild to severe hypertrophic, keloid, contracture, and burn contracture scars.
Dermapen Treatments for Stretch Marks (striae) is an effective way to minimise the appearance of these thin spidery lines that result from the skin stretching. Due to the speed of the Dermapen 4, even larger areas can be treated in almost no time at all.
How Much Downtime Can I Expect?
You’ll be back to your regular daily schedule as early as 12 hours after getting the procedure done. With minimal downtime and more comfort than ever before, Dermapen Treatments for scars is one of the best ways to get rid of your facial scars permanently.
