Nano Needling – Discover Your Instant Glow.

A Guide To Nano Needling

While microneedling is known for its many benefits and amazing results. Nano needling is a newer term and may be more suitable for some people especially with sensitive skin. Nano needling is also sometimes known as nano infusion or micro channeling.

Are you are one of those people who find Microneedling with Dr Pen at home a little intimidating because your are unfamiliar with a more invasive treatment or simply hate needles? Nano Needling with Dr Pen might be for you.

What is Nano Needling?

Even though nano needling includes “needle” in its name, it does not involve any needles. The Dr.Pen nano cartridges are made out of microscopic silicone-tipped cones. These cones create tiny channels in the very top layer of the skin. The tiny channels are invisible to the naked eye, and they allow skin boosters and serums to have up to 97% better absorption.

What are the benefits of nano needling?

The nano needling treatment can help to stimulate collagen production in the skin by safely infusing active ingredients from your serum through tiny nano channels. It can also help with the following skin concerns;

  • Mild pigmentation
  • Dry and dehydrated skin
  • Dullness
  • Improving the tone and texture of the skin
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines, especially for small targeted areas,
  • Helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Boost scalp hair growth

How often can you do nano needling?

As nano needling is gentler than micro needling, this means that it can be performed every one to two weeks. Microneedling, on the other hand, can only be performed once every four to six weeks.

This is because of how long it takes your skin cells to perform a full turnover cycle, and a full cycle must be taken to protect the integrity of the skin’s moisture barrier and to see full results from the microneedling. Nano needling is also safe to perform between microneedling treatments, as it’s so gentle. This makes it perfect for extending that plump, hydrated glow!

Is nano needling right for me?

We are talking about a treatment that is pain-free has no downtime, and instantly improves skins appearance. So, it suits almost everyone. It is gentle and safe and very effective. 

Nano needling is suitable for a beginner getting to know their microneedling system to someone with a busy lifestyle who spends very little time on skincare regime’s . Microneedling with Dr. Pen could also suit someone who is familiar with microneedling, and looking to save money or boost results between microneedling sessions.
