DERMAPEN® thanks to the presence of exchangeable pulsatory needles pricks skin in a regulated way. Skin damage created in that way is a stimulus for regeneration processes taking place through synthesis of collagen and elastin, which leads to improvement of skin condition.
The area planned for treatment is subjected to multiple pricks which leads skin to become reddened and it may also bleed in places of pricks. Depending on the area and skin type, the depth of pricks is precisely regulated from 0,5-2,5 mm. The effect of the treatment can be heightened by the usage of active substance dedicated to each problem, which penetrate deeper into skin through micro injuries formed during the treatment.
