In today’s fast-paced life, factors such as lack of emphasis on regular and healthy nutrition, stress, air pollution, the use of harmful substances like alcohol and cigarettes, and the natural aging process can contribute to the deterioration of skin health. However, recent advancements in science and technology have made a significant impact on skin rejuvenation methods. In recent years, one of the widely preferred methods for renewing the skin and restoring its lost elasticity is the Dermapen application. What is Dermapen? What does Dermapen do?

What is Dermapen?

The effects of aging are perhaps most prominently felt on the skin. Contrary to popular belief, the effects of aging on the skin begin not in advanced age but from the twenties onwards. Over time, the production of collagen, which maintains the integrity and structure of the skin, slows down, and the skin loses its elasticity. Various methods are used to delay the effects of aging on the skin and support the skin’s renewal process. In recent years, one of the most commonly used skin rejuvenation and renewal procedures is the Dermapen method. Dermapen, also known as microneedling, is a procedure performed to stimulate collagen production and the skin’s repair mechanism. Therefore, it is often referred to as collagen induction therapy. The Dermapen procedure is a minimally invasive process performed with small needles. It yields effective results in skin problems related to aging, such as wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. After the Dermapen procedure, the skin regains lost moisture and becomes more vibrant and smooth.

What is Dermapen Used For?

  • Elasticity loss in the skin,
  • Acne scars,
  • Sunspots,
  • Changes in skin color,
  • Enlarged pores,
  • Fine lines and wrinkles,
  • Dry skin,
  • Stretch marks after weight changes or post-pregnancy,
  • Scars from wounds and burns,
  • Dark circles around the eyes and under-eye bags,
  • Excessive sweating,
  • Elimination of blackheads,
  • Hair loss due to a condition like alopecia,
  • Sagging in the décolleté area.

Dermapen application is utilized to address various skin issues such as the ones mentioned above.

How to Apply Dermapen?

Before the Dermapen procedure, the expert doctor who will perform the procedure examines the person’s skin and takes photos for comparison after the treatment. Subsequently, the individual with skin problems is informed about the application. Before the treatment, the expert doctor may recommend the use of creams containing vitamins that support collagen production. Using these creams helps to see the effect of the procedure more quickly.

During the procedure, the skin is first cleansed. After the skin cleansing process, creams with anesthetic effects are applied to the skin. The anesthetic effect on the skin starts approximately half an hour later, preventing any pain or discomfort during the procedure. A pen-like device, also known as a micro-needling device, is used during the Dermapen application. The expert doctor moves the device gently over the upper layer of the skin. During this process, a thin layer of water can be applied to the skin to facilitate the device’s movement on the skin. This device has small needles at its tip. During the procedure, these needles are inserted into the skin, creating small punctures in the skin. These punctures are very small. The lengths of the needles on the Dermapen device vary. Typically, the lengths of these needles range from 0.5 mm to 2 mm. Depending on the type of skin problem, the needles on the device can be changed. For example, in cases where Dermapen is applied to eliminate deep acne scars, longer needles are preferred to allow the procedure to penetrate deeper.

As the skin ages, collagen production slows down. During the Dermapen application, the skin begins to produce collagen to close the punctures. The primary purpose of the Dermapen procedure is to trigger the skin’s collagen production. After the procedure, creams containing vitamins and minerals can be applied to the skin. These creams help the skin’s repair mechanism to activate more quickly. The Dermapen application is a method more commonly preferred for the face. However, the micro-needling method can also be utilized to address pigmentation, sagging, and stretch marks in other areas of the body such as the arms and legs.

What are the Advantages of Dermapen Application?

The most significant benefit of the Dermapen application is that it triggers the natural repair mechanism of the skin after the procedure. In addition to this, some advantages of the Dermapen procedure can be listed as follows:

  • The micro-needling method is considered a minimally invasive procedure. No wounds are observed during the procedure except for the small punctures in the skin.
  • Dermapen application helps achieve smoother and healthier-looking skin.
  • It is effective in addressing skin issues such as stretch marks, wrinkles, and acne scars.
  • Since the top layer of the skin is targeted during the application, the risk of bleeding and scarring after the procedure is very low.
  • The small needles used during the Dermapen application do not cause any pigmentation issues on the skin. Therefore, it can be comfortably applied to individuals with very light or very dark skin tones.
  • The lengths of the needles on the Dermapen device vary, making it effective in treating deep scars.
