Dermapen Micro Needling Treatments for Wrinkle Free, Smoother Skin at Flair Hair & Beauty Salon in Wolverton, Milton Keynes
As we age the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin naturally diminish leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Looking younger without resorting to facelifts or drastic surgery is a priority for most women, and at Flair Hair & Beauty Salon in Wolverton, Milton Keynes we have just the thing for you! We are proud to be offering Dermapen in our salon, a new micro-needling treatment to help you look younger, for longer.
What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a device which breaks down old scar tissue in order to stimulate skin cells for growth. This reproduction then results in the creation of new tissue layers with collagen and elastin fibres, helping to improve blood supply.
How Does Dermapen Work?
The Dermapen micro-needling pen uses sterile, individually-sealed, disposable needle cartridges for optimal patient safety and comfort. Every Dermapen needle tip is actually made up of 12 smaller needles, which penetrate vertically into the skin. This creates small, micro-skin channels, stimulating the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increasing the production of new collagen.
These micro-skin channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing penetration deep into the dermis fibroblasts, feeding the cells found in the dermis and basal layers. This increases the absorption of active ingredients into the skin, stimulating repair at a cellular level and accelerating the regeneration of the skin’s epidermal cells.
Why Should I Choose Dermapen Over Microdermabrasion?
This treatment is similar to laser treatments, but without the severe side effects or the long recovery time. Adding to that benefit, studies have shown that Dermapen treatments are more effective than traditional microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The disposable needles reduce the risk of cross contamination and the needle depth is adjustable, allowing treatment to be adapted to an individual client’s needs.
What Conditions Does Micro-needling with Dermapen Help?
Dermapen has been shown to aid in reducing the appearance of
- Mild to moderate scarring from acne
- Surgical scarring
- Wrinkles & fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Skin texture & pore sizes
- Keloid scarring
What Happens During a Dermapen Appointment?
Firstly, the skin is thoroughly cleaned. Using a collagen-stimulating product, such as Hyaluronic Acid or Vitamin-C serum during the procedure, will help to enhance results.
Next, the sterile Dermapen device pierces the skin. The device’s speed and adjustable needle depth allows for the piercing of the skin, which in turn increases the absorption of treatment products. Following treatment, a soothing skin product such as a collagen mask is used to heal, hydrate and protect the skin.
Will I be Red After the Dermapen Treatment?
It is common to experience mild redness, along with minor swelling in certain cases, which may last between approximately 24-48 hours. After several days or weeks you will notice a more radiant and smoother appearance and brighter, younger looking skin. Many clients see an improvement immediately however, it can take several months to realise the treatment’s full benefits.
How Often Should I Have a Dermapen Treatment?
The micro-needling treatment can be repeated safely every 4-6 weeks until the desired results are achieved. When reducing the appearance of scarring, it is recommended that 3-6 treatments take place. For the introduction of collagen, 3 treatments are recommended to begin with, along with a collagen mask.
A minimum of 4-6 weeks should separate each treatment. Varying factors will affect the number of treatments necessary, including how each individual reacts to treatment and the appearance of a problem at the start of treatment.
How Much Does a Dermapen Treatment Cost?
One Dermapen treatment, with a conditioning collagen mask is £60. To really see an immediate improvement why not combine your Dermapen treatment with a fabulous Dermaplaning treatment at our Milton Keynes salon for just £80?
