Dermapen is an effective microneedling treatment to improve your skin in a targeted way. The Dermapen creates millions of tiny channels in your skin, allowing those important nutrients to be absorbed faster and better. The production of collagen and elastin increases, making the skin look firmer and more supple.
The needles, which are applied in a controlled way, create micro-trauma in the skin. The body responds by reorganizing the collagen structure so that it is younger, healthier, and contains more collagen. Collagen is the key building block in your skin that makes it firmer. We use the original Dermapen 3 and 4.
