The Dermapen™ is also used for dermal infusion increasing the absorption of topical skin products by 100 fold. Fine needles create controlled micro-channels in the skin, stimulating collagen at the dermal level, resurfacing the skin at the epithelial level and increasing the permeability of the skin so that ampules, serums and peel products can penetrate more deeply and effectively.
There are no adverse side effects such as excess or less of pigment, prolonged redness or scarring and the down time following the procedure is 24 hours or less. Typically a series of 4 treatments are preformed spaced at 2 week intervals and results are cumulative.
Dermapen™ treatments can be combined with non-invasive radiofrequency skin tightening for laser like results without laser problems. Dermapen™ treatments are also used to boost the efficacy of common topical treatments including growth serums and skin lighteners.
