All About Microneedling with DermaPen

Updated: Apr 30, 2019

A magical instrument when used for appropriate conditions as it tackles everything from dark spots, stretch marks, scars, white spots, uneven skin tone, pimples to a basic skin rejuvenation. The prime feature is a no to minimal downtime and can be combined with almost any other procedure.

Microneedling is carried out using a pen like instrument that contains a number of tiny needles. The size of needles depend on the instrument used however in case of DermaPen it just cannot be smaller.

The idea is of producing multiple minute puncture sites that then either clears out unwanted pigmentation and tissue or stimulates the underlying dermis to produce new and stronger collagen. In case of treatments over the scalp, in addition to stimulating collagen formation, it also stimulates follicular regeneration. When dealing with white spots, microneedling pushes the pigment forming cells in the periphery into the white area thereby repigmenting it.

Another interesting effect is the easy penetration of medicinal products such as Hyaluronic acid, Whitening agents, nourishing agents, Rejuvenating agents at the appropriate depth thereby enhancing the effect in lesser time.

On application, it produces a somewhat tingling sensation and usually people who have had other procedures done such as dermroller or fillers, may not feel it at all and doesn't require any anesthesia. The DermaPen 4 device is an automated device that works at a maximum speed of 120 rotations per second and ensures the needles reach a predefined depth thereby a specific target area depending on the indication. The treatment can be done over practically any area on the body, even around the eyes. A treatment over the face usually takes 3-5 mins to complete.
