The Dermapen micro-needling employs the traditional Chinese technique for acupuncture although here the objective is not to reduce pain but rather to improve the skin appearance. Every needle tip of Dermapen is made up of 12 smaller needles, which use proprietary technology to penetrate vertically into the skin. This creates small, micro-skin injuries or channels that both stimulate the skin’s natural ability to heal itself and increase the production of new collagen.
These micro-skin channels carry up to 80% more topical nutrients, allowing penetration deep into the dermis fibroblasts and feeding the cells found in the dermis and basal layers. This increases the absorption of active ingredients into the skin, stimulating repair at a cellular level and accelerating the regeneration of the skin’s epidermal cells.
