The multi purpose treatment target fine lines and wrinkles to scars

A minimally invasive treatment can be used all over the body, from scalp to ankles. It can improve the appearance of scars, boost collagen and encourage hair growth. Microneedling with Dr Pen is also treats fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, cellulite and stretch marks. It does it all!

Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture.

The trauma caused to skin during microneedling opens tiny microchannels in the skin and it responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. If you choose to microneedle at home, ensure that you’re using clean, sterilized equipment to avoid an infection. It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. On a short-term basis, it plumps the skin and makes the skin look more radiant. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure especially with scaring and sun damage reduction.

Supercharge your treatment by add a serum

When used with the right serum, microneedling can cure your dry, flaky skin, since the micro-needles push hydration deep into the subsurface layers of the dermis. A hyaluronic acid–based serum is always a great option since it can hydrate and plump the skin from the inside-out.

Your skin responds to the micro-injuries caused by derma-rolling by producing more elastin and collagen. That means wrinkled skin is plumped up and fine lines are improved. According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart, produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment.

Aftercare is so important. The skincare you use post microneedling is important, given that your skin may be sensitised from the deliberate trauma, especially if you’ve had it done professionally in a clinic, this is because they tend to use a longer needle. Microneedling causes temporary injury to the skin barrier and as you heal, your skin barrier is more vulnerable to potentially sensitising ingredients such as fragrance, acids and retinoids, these should be avoided for at least the first 72 hours post treatment.
