Enhance the Appearance of Your Skin with Non-invasive Dermapen® Microneedling Treatments
The word “microneedling” can sometimes be off-putting to clients, who hear the word “needle” and immediately conclude that this will be a very painful treatment. However, these concerns are unfounded—the precise depth of the miniscule micro-injuries sustained during a microneedling treatment have been meticulously calculated to ensure a comfortable, pain-free treatment while avoiding the formation of new scar tissue.
Moreover, through the careful creation of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels in the epidermis (the top layer of the skin), Dermapen® microneedling treatments deliver an additional benefit—improvement in skincare product penetration and efficacy. Why is this important? Most skincare products simply sit on top of the skin, and are never able to penetrate into the dermis (innermost layers of the skin) where the active ingredients can truly be effective and deliver lasting skin rejuvenation.
We are fortunate to live in an age where corrective and/or skin-enhancing procedures are not limited to severe, invasive surgical measures that require extensive downtime and are associated with an elevated risk of complications. Dermapen® Microneedling treatments are non-invasive—they work by harnessing the body’s own wound-healing response to facilitate a gentle, yet powerful skin rejuvenation treatment that is safe and appropriate for all skin types!
Dermapen® Microneedling Benefits
Dermapen® Microneedling can help to improve the appearance of a number of problematic skin issues, including, but not limited to:
- Stretch marks
- Body and/or facial scarring as a result of acne, injury, surgery, or a severe burns
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin darkening (melasma, hyperpigmentation) and discoloration
In order to reap the full benefits of this remarkable technology, it is important to have your Dermapen® microneedling procedure performed by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners, such as Dr. Hisham Seify at Newport Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, located in Newport Beach, California. Orange County plastic surgeon Dr. Seify has a keen eye for aesthetics and vast medical expertise and knowledge from which to draw from. After thoroughly assessing the condition of your skin, Dr. Seify will provide comprehensive recommendations as to whether microneedling is the best cosmetic enhancement option to facilitate the achievement of your aesthetic goals.
How Does Dermapen®’s Advanced Technology Work?
After sustaining an injury, our body instinctively increases the production of two key proteins (collagen and elastin), which then dissolve the dead or damaged skin cells, replacing them with new, healthy cells. During your Dermapen® microneedling treatment, the tiny, stainless steel needles will be used to create targeted micro-injuries. Although the micro-injuries are not painful or dangerous, they still trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response and increase the production of new collagen, which has the power to transform and improve both the condition and appearance of the skin.
The Dermapen® Difference: Rigorous Safety Standards And Remarkable Results
Equipped with a cluster of micro-needles on its tip, Dermapen®’s unique, vertical microneedling technology has proven to be safer and more effective than traditional microneedling rollers due to its inherent adjustability, which enables practitioners to adjust the treatment intensity and to account for differences in skin types and thickness. This serves to improve the precision of the treatment and expands the range of treatment sites to include the nose, mouth, eyes, and other highly sensitive areas.
Dermapen®’s specialized vertical delivery system facilitates easier penetration of the microneedles into any residual scar tissue, and expedites the healing process without causing additional scarring or discomfort. This versatile technology has broad applications that are not restricted to the facial areas, but can also be employed to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin on the body (i.e. face, legs, back, abdomen, hands, and décolletage), making it a highly-recommended option for patients suffering from stretch marks on the body and/or acne scars on the back.
