Dermapen Resurfacing promotes skin rejuvenation and tightening of the skin’s surface.
How does Dermapen Resurfacing work?
Dermapen Resurfacing is done using a device similar to a tattoo gun. There are multi-speed needles that can be adjusted to different depths which penetrate the skin to cause a production of collagen . The small size of the device makes it easier to get into the smaller areas of the face such as around the eyes and nose. A hyaluronic acid gel is applied to the surface of the skin which is then pushed into the skin as the treatment is performed. The hyaluronic acid gel adds volume to the skin which also helps to soften the look of the skin making it appear more youthful. You will see a difference in the texture of your skin after each treatment.
What are the risks and results of Dermapen Resurfacing?
By injuring the skin like this, a natural production of collagen is induced which initiates the healing process and softens the overall look skin. There are four things happening under your skin that give you the results you will love. First is an inflammatory response. This is when your skin will be red and feel hot. Secondly, new collagen is being produced and new tissue is formed. Once that has happened, the new collagen is released and new, healthy skin takes the place of the damaged skin. The total length of this process is about 28 days.
What kind of downtime can I expect from Dermapen Resurfacing?
The typical downtime associated with Dermapen Resurfacing scarring is about 3-5 days. The face will be red and dry, with everything subsiding over the 3-5 days. Full results take a bit longer, about 4 weeks. This is why you must wait 4 weeks in between treatments.
