Dermapen

Dermapen® Micro-Needling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a treatment for wrinkles and pigmentation, scars (including burn scars, acne scars and surgical scars) and stretch marks. This revolutionary treatment has been popular with celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Demi Moore.

Clinical studies have shown that Dermapen® micro needling produces channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural defenses to repair and produce concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin. This results in the skin’s thickness increasing by up to 80% and results in smoothing scars, visibly reducing stretch marks and diminishing wrinkles. Dermapen® Micro-Needling can be administered on the face, neck and hands and can produce results in just one treatment.

What areas can be treated?

Dermapen treatments are typically performed on the face, neck and chest. Treatments can improve the appearance of keloid, surgical and acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, minmizes pore size and overall skin rejuvination. For scars best results are typically seen after a series of 3-6 treatments depending on the severity and thickness of the scar.
