TREATMENT TO TRY: DERMAPEN
The Dermapen is a high-speed, micro-needling device that uses multiple micro needles to pierce the skin, creating ‘micro-injuries’ that harness the skin’s ability to repair itself. When the skin is subject to minor injuries, such as superficial cuts and abrasions, it immediately destroys old, damaged tissue (think acne scarring or wrinkles) and triggers the formation of new collagen and elastin. The Dermapen allows for ‘controlled damage’ on the surface of the skin and is ideal for those who are concerned with acne scars, enlarged pores, an uneven skin tone, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. You may experience some redness and tenderness for the first 24 hours after the treatment, with some peeling after two or three days, but there is no downtime after the treatment. The Dermapen promises a smoother, plumper, and noticeably firmer skin, and results typically last for approximately three months.
