Dermapen Skin Needling
Dermapen is an automated system that vertically pierces the skin creating micro channels and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, therefore enticing the skins natural growth and healing responses. The channels allow 80% greater absorption of topical nutrients and activate ingredients deeper into the layers of the skin to feed, nourish and repair.
Unlike traditional skin needling rollers, Dermapen causes less trauma and redness making it a safer and more comfortable treatment with little to no downtime.
