Reduce acne scars & tighten skin
Scars are areas of tissue that replace normal skin after injury. A scar results from the biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body. With the exception of very minor lesions, every wound (e.g. after accident, disease, surgery) results in some degree of scarring.
Acne scars are probably the first type of scar that pops into your mind. Acne scars are the result of skin follicles becoming blocked by excessive oils, keratin and old skin cells which triggers an inflammatory response reaction resulting in scar tissue.
How does Dermapen® treat acne scars?
The Dermapen® treatment can provide fabulous improvement of the appearances of scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen® cause new collagen and elastin to be generated, as well as new capillary growth which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue.
How does Dermapen® tighten skin?
The Dermapen® tightens skin in the same manner it helps to improve the appearance of scars. As we know, wrinkles start to appear because our skin becomes thinner, less elastic and less hydrated. Collagen and elastin production slows down and our skin “deflates” causing wrinkles. As mentioned above, the Dermapen®’s advanced needling technology stimulates the skin to start producing collagen and elastin. Blood supply is also improved helping with hydration. When there’s more collagen and elastin, your skin becomes healthier and more supple and the skin becomes taught again.
