What is Dermapen™? The 2 Facts You Need to Know

Do you have acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, or stretch marks that you’re trying to get rid of? If so, Dermapen™ is for you! Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device that is designed to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin.  It’s a handheld wand that creates pin dot openings in the skin, which results in the body’s natural response to re-grow and repair the skin by producing collagen.  If you are considering using the Dermapen™, here are 2 facts that you should know.

Dermapen treats several issues

The Dermapen™ is used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and pigmentation to give you ageless skin.  While it is typically used on the face, the Dermapen™ is commonly used in places such as the abdomen, neck, and arms, but can be used anywhere else that you have the aforementioned issues.  It really is a wonderful device!

Length of time for treatment

Since Dermapen™ is not light based therapy there is no wait time to get treatment because your skin type does not need to be considered.  Therefore, once you’ve decided to get Dermapen™, you can begin treatment right away regardless if your skin is a darker tone or not. The length of time a Dermapen™ treatment requires depends on the issue being treated. If you are getting treatment for skin rejuvenation, it typically takes 4-6 treatments that are 4 weeks apart. For acne scarring, you can expect to get 6 treatments roughly 6 weeks apart. Finally, for stretch marks, it typically takes 4-8 treatments that are 4-6 weeks apart.

The actual length of time for one treatment depends on the area that you are having treated.  Here at Alazzo Med Spa, we typically take 1 hour to 90 minutes to complete a facial treatment, but can allocate more or less time depending on your needs. Either way you can be on your way and resume normal activities right after treatment.  No hiding from the sun like other treatment options.
