Dr. Dermic MicroNeedling
Microneedling is also referred to as Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy and Micro-Needle Therapy.
Micro-Needling is the ultimate non-surgical and non-ablative treatment. As the very fine microneedles penetrate the skin, they trigger the body’s natural healing response. These tiny needles used in the procedure create microscopic channels in the dermis that stimulates the body to start naturally producing proteins and collagen. Micro needling leads to increased production of Elastin, Collagen and improved circulation in the area.
Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure, working like a netting to hold skin cells together. It also gives skin a smooth and youthful appearance, as we have it in abundance when we are young. As we age, collagen starts to breakdown, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.
It’s no surprise that this treatment has been hailed as a non-invasive way to achieve youthful, dewy looking skin.
Dr Dermic Gold Pen
Dr Dermic GoldPen is the newest device in microneedling technology. The GoldPen is a lighter and faster device, making it more comfortable for us as therapists to use as well as providing an amazing treatment for our clients.
The GoldPen now opens over 1,200 microchannels per second, that’s a 30% increase on an already fantastic treatment. This means more vitamins, proteins, fibroblasts and collagen will be stimulated during the treatment.
The faster motor not only results in more microchannels but it also means that the “down cycle” of the needles is reduced. This means that the needles spend less time in the skin resulting in even less chance of bruising or micro-tears.
The Dermica Needle Cartridges come in individual sterile packing which means each microneedle cartridge is used once and then disposed of immediately.
This minimises the risk of cross-contamination & infection which is of upmost importance to us here in the clinic.
Dr Dermic Gold Pen VS Traditional Skin Rollers
Due to the shape of traditional micro needling rollers the needles will puncture the skin at an angle, causing scratches to the epidermis. This is particularly prominent with needle depths 1mm and longer. This damage to the epidermis leaves customers with more bleeding and longer downtime. There is also a much greater risk of bruising and infection with the Dermal Rollers.
The Dr Dermic Pen needles work perpendicular to the skin, so there is no damage to the epidermis, and the needles are so fine that bleeding is at a minimum. The Dr Dermic Pen requires no pressure on the skin which means that bruising rarely occurs, and downtime is reduced dramatically.
The adjustable depth of the Dr Dermic Pen and the small size and shape of the Microneedle Cartridge means that you are getting a constant, accurate and full coverage treatment. In comparison the dermal roller has a fixed needle depth and it’s shape makes it difficult to get in around the contours of the face e.g. nose, eyes and top lip.
The Dr Dermic allows the opening of 80% more micro-channels than traditional rollers. This enables a greater stimulation of collagen and elastin production and increases the absorption of applied solutions. It causes more trauma to the lower layers of the skin and less damage to the epidermis, which makes it a far more effective treatment than traditional dermal rollers.
How soon will you notice a difference?
You will see an immediate difference in the skin. Once the erythema subsides there will be a lovely healthy glow from the skin. There will be an immediate tightening and plumping of the skin, however, this will be most noticeable from around 2 weeks after the treatment.
