What is a Dermapen (Registered) and what does it do?
Skin needling is a procedure that involves puncturing the skin multiple times with small needles attached to a cylindrical roller Dermapen (Registered) to induce collagen growth and improve atrophic (depressed) acne scarring.
Pioneered by Dr. Andre Camirand in the late 1990s as an evolutionary step from scar Subcision®, it simply involves the use of manually applied skin rollers that have around 200 fine surgical steel needles attached to the roller mechanism. It’s applied directly to the skin in a crisscross motion.
The objective is to stimulate or puncture the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, smooth skin and promote scar or stretch mark reduction through the skins natural wound healing process and the results are amazing!
