Dermapen 4

Dermapen 4 is a micro-needling technique that allows us to treat multiple skin indications. It stimulates your collagen and elastin and gives your skin a boost.

What is Dermapen4?

 

Dermapen is a micro-needling procedure that is great for reducing overall pore size, signs of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and improvement of the skin’s complexion. Micro-needling also stimulates collagen through the skin, which causes anti-ageing results such as tightening, plumping and improving the skin’s appearance.

The Dermapen provides a fast response through the segmented delivery of microneedles to the skin. It causes micro-injuries to the outer and inner layers of the skin. As a result, the body’s natural healing response is triggered, which causes the skin to rejuvenate.

How does the treatment work?

 

Before the treatment, we thoroughly clean and disinfect the skin. After your skin is cleansed, we apply a serum that suits your skin and start with the procedure. You may experience discomfort during the treatment.

 

Possible skin reaction after treatment

 

Immediately after treatment, the skin is red, and swelling may occur. The skin may also feel tight. Redness usually disappears within 24-72 hours. Healing can be accompanied by light peeling and scabs. The skin recovers within 3-10 days.

 

Aftercare

 

  • For the first 24 hours after treatment, do not do anything to the skin, do not wash or apply cream unless otherwise advised.
  • For the first 48 hours, you should avoid heat sources such as sauna, swimming pool and intense exercise.
  • You should not wear makeup for the first 48 hours after treatment. Medical makeup, such as Oxygenetix may be allowed if necessary.
  • Sleep on a clean pillowcase every other day.
  • Do not use scrubs and peels for the first two weeks after treatment.
  • For the first three to seven days, do not use intensive, exfoliating products with acids such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid; do not use retinol and hydroquinone.
  • You should not scratch/pull at the scabs and/or peels.
  • After treatment, it is essential to care for the skin with a restorative cream, such as Alhydran, to promote healing and allow the skin to heal more beautifully. Alhydran can be applied two to three times daily and can be purchased at the clinic.
  • During the treatment process, it is important to avoid direct sunlight on the skin and tanning beds. It is essential to use daily sun protection with at least SPF50.
