Dermapen fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction using a highly fragmented delivery of needles into the epidermis and dermis (inner layers of the skin). These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction.
The Dermapen’s controlled precision allows for the three phases of CIT mechanics of new collagen growth to occur. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes culminating in the second of three phases of CIT mechanics where collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, GAG’s and angiogenesis occur. The last phase of CIT and the Dermapen treatment results in the tissue remodeling process where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening as well as new collagen can be seen.
By combining Dermapen Micro-needling with Platelet-Rich Plasma technology, a patient can get far greater results, with noticeable cosmetic enhancement. Platelet-rich plasma is harvested from the patient’s own blood and restored into the skin tissue during the micro-needling procedure. The end result is much faster healing and better collagen growth, creating a richer, smoother, glowing look to your skin.
This process works by using the body’s own naturally restorative properties, and its ability to remodel and regenerate itself. Because the process doesn’t involve heat, thermal energy or other chemicals and unnecessary trauma, the skin can heal much faster than it would through more conventional means – without any downtime, and limited side effects!
