What is the Dermapen system?
The Dermapen is a micro-needle device that works to firm, lift and rejuvenate the skin.
It is an electronic device approved by the FDA that uses multiple fine needles vertically to pierce the skin, at a certain depth for each area and each pathology to be treated, causing a stimulus that will result in the production of collagen.
It is a treatment to promote the production of the patient’s own collagen (autologous collagen). It is effective in reducing expression lines, wrinkles, minimizing stretch marks, scars and acne marks.
It is an ideal treatment for the improvement of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks located in any area of the body.
The depth of the needle can be adjusted during the course of the procedure to accommodate different treatment areas and can be easily maneuvered around facial contours and delicate areas such as the eyes, nose, and mouth.
It is a therapy without the usual pain and discomfort of other treatments, it also allows better absorption of medications or substances, such as PRP, hyaluronic acid and peptides in the skin, which improves results.
Each session lasts between 30-60 minutes. It is done in the consultation itself and on an outpatient basis.
Previously, the area to be treated is covered with an anesthetic ointment that leaves the area insensitive.
Slight redness for 12-24 hours. There will be a gradual improvement in the skin due to an increase in the new collagen that has been created after the stimulation of the secretory cells.
3-5 sessions, which can be repeated every 4-6 weeks
HOW DERMAPEN WORKS IN DIFFERENT AREAS
Dermapen is a treatment that helps improve old scars and skin blemishes, restoring collagen and elastin through a natural healing process. Ultrathin needles, with which multiple skin punctures are made that induce a healing response of the skin producing new collagen and elastin. This new collagen and elastin improve the quality and texture of the skin, making it feel smoother and firmer and helps erase unsightly scars.
Its active ingredients exert an immediate tightening effect on the skin, retracting fibroblasts and stimulating the production of collagen. It acts as a stabilizer and antioxidant of the cell membrane, protecting it from damage caused by free radicals. It favors the regeneration of fibroblasts and therefore collaborates in the recovery of the skin. The result is a reduction of wrinkles, improving the firmness of the skin and increasing its elasticity.
It works against all types of acne, both inflammatory and non-inflammatory. Regulates and reduces pimples, regulates excess fat and sebum, eliminates dead skin and bacteria, and provides a greater anti-inflammatory effect. Activates the formation of new fibroblasts, recovers acne marks and depressions, producing new collagen and increasing the production of elastin. Its keratolytic action helps to restore the appearance and tone of the skin and normalize its problems.
The treatment of facial spots is in many cases a real challenge for the professional. A precise initial assessment and a detailed study are required since their treatment depends on their origin and situation. Dermapen combined with other techniques inhibits the action of tyrosinase, the enzyme that is involved in melanin synthesis or melanogenesis. The action of its active ingredients reduces hyperpigmentation, achieving luminosity and normalizing skin tone. It helps to regenerate and soften the skin while reducing wrinkles. Treats all signs of dark spots. Decreases excess melanin production (hyperpigmentation) that causes the appearance of melasma, chloasma, and solar lentigines.

Wrinkles and fine skin density
Hypertrophic, keloid, post-acne and postsurgical scars
