Micro Needling History

The idea of needling may have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years, starting with ancient Chinese, Indian and Egyptian health practices. However, cosmetic and medical needling as it is known today is a relatively new concept. Modern day micro needling consists of piercing the skin multiple times with very thin needles to deliver light trauma, thereby inducing an immune response. This is one of the approaches to something known as “fractional rejuvenation”.

How Does Micro-needling Work?

The Dermapen 3™ offers unparalleled collagen induction by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.

Dermapen 3™’s controlled precision promotes the three phases of CIT mechanics, thus allowing for new collagen growth to occur.

The first phase begins with the release of the body’s own growth factors, followed by a 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 phase of CIT mechanics, where production of collagen I, III, and IV, elastin, proteoglycans and glycosoaminoglycans, and the process of angiogenesis occur.

The last phase of CIT and the desired result of a Dermapen™ Treatment is the tissue remodeling process, where the skin’s vascular matrix matures, causing skin to tighten. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing product.

Moreover, because the process never involves heat or thermal energy, does not use harsh chemicals or cause unnecessary trauma, the skin heals quickly, requiring virtually no downtime.

Because the process activated via micro-needling essentially generates new healthy skin cells to replace aged or damaged ones, applications for the Dermapen™ are very diverse. The device has ben used to treat visible signs of aging, such as skin atrophy and wrinkles, as well as various types of scarring, stretch marks, several types of pigmentation disorders, sun damaged skin, hair loss, and much, much more.

In addition, the Dermapen™ is a fantastic drug delivery device. Any product applied to the skin during or immediately after a Dermapen™ Treatment is very easily absorbed into the skin, rendering it much more effective than with a traditional topical application.”

Dermapen causes significantly less trauma and skin damage. Treatments are far more comfortable by comparison enabling safer and more effective skin rejuvenation.

The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the effectiveness and efficiency of treatments by increasing absorption of products, whilst reducing pain and discomfort. Dermapen can be as effective as ablative treatments such as fractional laser, IPL, laser resurfacing and chemical peels, without the negative side effects and downtime.
