Clairderm Dermal Pen- Percutaneous Collagen Induction
Dermal pen treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses advanced skin-needling technology to rejuvenate the skin by gently creating numerous micro-wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
Which areas can the Dermal Pen treat?
Our dermal pen can be used for indications ranging from facial rejuvenation, acne scarring to stretch marks. You can notice a difference in a single session, however significant improvement will be visible after 4-6 treatments. Collagen production takes around 6-8 weeks to build with the long lasting results.
How does the Dermal Pen work?
The dermal pen is a sterile, pen-like device that penetrates the skin with micro needles that range in length. The micro needles penetrate down to the dermis (or middle layer of the skin) to create tiny ‘micro’ wounds that stimulate the natural healing process of the body, leading to the growth of collagen and elastin, restoring the appearance of healthy skin.
The needle depth in the pen system is adjustable, which means that the tool can even be used in very delicate areas, such as around the lips and eyes.
In addition, channels created by the dermal pen to significantly improve the pathway for nutrients to be delivered to the skin. This will enhance your result from your skin care creams (please link to cosmeceuticals page)
Topical anaesthetic is applied to the treatment area to ensure optimal comfort
What can I do prior to my treatment?
For best results, it is advisable to prepare the skin with cosmeceutical skincare for 2 weeks prior to treatment. Active skincare including vitamin C and A allow the skin to strengthen, which will help to decrease healing time and improve results
What can I expect after my treatment?
There is very little downtime following treatment. Facial redness for 12-48 hours is common and some people may experience mild swelling and bruising. Occasionally with deeper treatments you may experience some mild crusting or scabbing.
There is no need for dressings post treatment and you should be able to return straight to work, depending on the extent of the treatment. Exercise should be avoided for 24 hours post treatment and direct exposure to the sun is not recommended for 1-2 weeks.
