At enhanceskin Nelson, we’re committed to your skin’s rejuvenation. In this blog post, we’re putting the spotlight on a treatment that we know can help to erase your skin’s past, Dermapen Microneedling.
Dermapen Microneedling can be used to treat various signs of ageing skin:
- Vertical lip lines
- Enlarged or dilated pores and scars
Dermapen Microneedling is also effective in skin tightening and rejuvenation.
This relatively painless treatment utilises multiple needles to puncture the outer layer of the skin, creating a controlled skin injury. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. The freshly produced collagen rejuvenates the skin by filling fine lines. This results in an overall improvement in the skin’s texture and tightness.
The effects of Microneedling can be enhanced by combination with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) but that’s another story!
How many treatments are recommended for skin rejuvenation with Dermapen Microneedling?
This does depend on individual circumstances, but, as a general rule, we recommend 4-6 treatments, four weeks apart.
When will I see results from Dermapen Microneedling?
You will generally see some results after your first treatment, the common response by patients after the initial treatment is that their skin has a glow and need less make-up. Lasting, and more significant results become visible after 4-6 treatments, as it takes six weeks for new collagen to form. It takes about six months for the full effect of the treatments, over this time you will find that the condition of your skin, continues to improve. Results are further enhanced by using recommended skincare products after your treatment.
Is Dermapen Microneedling painful?
You’ll find the treatment relatively painless. We can also apply topical anaesthetic cream if and when necessary.
