Microneedle Therapy — How Does it Work?

f you’re a skincare and beauty aficionado, you’ve no doubt heard about the latest skin sensation taking the world by storm: microneedling therapy.

But how does superficially pricking your skin thousands of times actually result in a younger-looking face and body?

We’re sharing how microneedling therapy works and what steps you can take to get started either at your favourite clinic or at home.

What is Microneedle Therapy?

Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an aesthetic procedure that promises to rejuvenate the skin by erasing fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, visible pores, acne and more. It can also soften the appearance of scars, including acne scars.

A microneedling pen is a tool featuring fine needles that creates micro-injuries on the upper layer of the skin. The micro trauma then stimulates a natural healing response by directing collagen and elastin to be produced in microscopic wound regions.

Microneedling results include improvement of skin’s overall texture, elasticity, complexion, and overall condition. Microneedling may be used to target skin blemishes on the face and the rest of the body. Microneedling may also be used to smooth out stretch marks.

What are Dermapen Treatments™?

The cornerstone of Dermapen Treatments™ are professional procedures using a Dermapen 4™ device. This microneedling pen is leading the curve due to its advanced technology. It gets superior results and can target several skin concerns at once. It’s 104% faster than other microneedling pens and allows the skin to absorb up to 80% more topical actives.

But that’s just the beginning.

Dermapen Treatments are holistic skin solutions that combine clinical procedures with Dp Dermaceutical skincare products for safe infusion and enhanced results. The other side of the Dermapen Treatments takes place at home with Dermapen HOME microneedling sessions and a twice-daily skincare routine.

Over 3 million Dermapen Treatments have been performed worldwide, resulting in beautiful glowing skin.

Can Microneedling Be Performed at Home?

If the idea of having your own at-home microneedling equipment is a dream come true, you’re in luck. With the Dermapen HOME™, you can now boost the skin rejuvenating effects of your clinical procedures from the comfort of your home.

The Dermapen HOME reaches depths of 0.1–0.5mm, making it safe for home use. This depth is suitable for the visible improvement of wrinklespigmentationproblematic skinrosaceaopen pores and skin texture. Thanks to the disposable cartridges, contamination and infection risks are reduced.

Derma Rollers Vs Dermapen—Which is Better?

Technological innovations have paved the way for advanced microneedling tools. The Dermapen 4 and Dermapen HOME are popular with patients due to their advanced results, safety, efficiency, and comfort. Dermapen needle cartridges contain the highest quality, microfine needles that create up to 1920 microinjuries per second. This is 104% faster than many microneedling pens, so you can be done in half the time.

The up and down motion of the needles creates smaller, precise injuries on the skin than traditional derma rollers. Rollers create bigger arching cuts due to the flick and tear effect as the needles roll across the skin and may require a longer downtime.

One of the main Dermapen benefits is its minimal downtime. You can go about your normal activities immediately after microneedling treatment using Dermapen. No need to hide your red and inflamed face away for a day or longer, just apply your Dp Dermaceuticals™ serums and COVER RECOVER™ and you’re set to face the day with confidence.
