Microneedling gives the skin a fresher and firmer appearance. The needles penetrate medium-depth into the skin and stimulate the skin's own renewal. The Dermapen is especially suited to treat small and special areas. In the long term, the treatment stimulates the formation of new collagen and skin cell regeneration. In addition, the microneedling increases the generation of hyaluronate acid and elastin, which improves the structure of the skin.
The more often and earlier microneedling is performed, the safer and more permanent is the result. The amount of needed sessions will be discussed in a consultation with the doctor previous to the treatment.
Before the microneedling, an anaesthetic cream will be applied, therefore the treatment is almost pain-free.
The Microneedling stimulates the blood circulation, which can lead to a mild to moderate redness and causes a warmth feeling. It is possible that the redness is visible even several days after treatment but can be covered-up with make-up.
