FOLAWNS MEDICAL SPA AND SALON
Dermapen skin needling will create the micro-injuries which will ultimately trigger the growth of fibroblast cells that will stimulate the production of collagen resulting in plumper and smoother-looking skin. Microneedling is mostly used on the face and may treat various scars, wrinkles, and large pores.
We invite you to schedule a Free consultation with one of our Aestheticians before scheduling a treatment.
Microneedling is just a fraction of the cost of surgical treatment.
It will likely take 6 to 8 sessions, each of which last approximately 60 minutes. After that, you can bid farewell to that problem area and cherish your rejuvenated skin.
Microneedling can treat any of the following:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Pigmentation marks from sun damage or acne
WHAT IS DERMAPEN?
The Dermapen® is an automated micro-needling device with a disposable tip cartridge that is made up of 12 micro-needles, which uses proprietary technology to penetrate vertically into the skin. The stamping action of the Dermapen®'s vertical tip creates invisible micro-injuries to the skin, while stimulating the skin's natural ability to heal itself and increase the production of new collagen. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body's innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes and the skin becomes rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Dermapen® skin needling gives you rejuvenated and plumber skin with no pain, minimal discomfort and very little downtime.
In this therapy, disposable needles are used which eliminates the risk of cross-contamination.
The depth of the needles is adjustable and this allows for a treatment customized to the patient's needs.
Being the most advanced treatment, it can easily treat the hard to reach areas like around the nose, eyes, and lips.
Needles are injected vertically so that it can easily penetrate scar tissue.
It is the most controlled and consistent treatment that yields optimal results.
It causes less pain and redness for the patient.
Skin needling treatments are normally completed in 30-60 minutes, depending on desired area.
IS MICRONEEDLING EFFECTIVE?
As you age, your skin starts producing lesser amount of collagen which gives the skin a dull and wrinkled appearance. Microneedling is effective in correcting damaged skin. The skin is stimulated to produce new skin cells which replace the old ones. As the old layer of skin peels off, fine lines, wrinkles, and crow's feet get noticeably reduced.
Dermapen® Certified Professionals are able to puncture the dermis up to 2.5mm. and adjust the dial according to the patient's custom needs and treatment area. The pain during each treatment is extremely minimal. Most patients are back to their usual routine within 2 days of receiving treatment.
The Dermapen Microneedling Pen provides an unparalleled response through the segmented delivery of microneedles, creating micro injuries to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the inner layer of skin). As a result, the micro injuries encourage the body’s innate ability to repair itself.
Every Dermapen tip is outfitted with 12 needles and features our patented technologies, which include SureSpace™ and SafLok™. Accordingly, these safety enhancements can be found in every Dermapen needle tip and pen.
Furthermore, by using SureSpace™ and SafLok™ microneedling pen technologies, practitioners can deliver their patients the safest microneedling treatment possible, while getting the best microneedling results for their patients.
Basically, the Dermapen skin needling helps the skin to repair itself after it has encountered any physical damage like cuts, scars or any other physical damage. When an injury occurs, your skin will destroy the old, damaged tissue that causes acne scarring and wrinkles and will replace it with freshly produced collagen. This treatment is best for all the skin types and tones, especially for the people who are facing a problem like acne scarring, wrinkling, fine lines and dilated pores.
DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE SUN
After you have undergone your microneedling procedure, stay out of the sun and do not apply any sunscreen, due to the toxins that may be contained in the lotion. Post procedure, the skin channels are completely open, and any toxins contained in topical applicants may be harmful to you.
DO NOT USE ANY "ACTIVE INGREDIENT" SKIN PRODUCTS
Post procedure, avoid any skincare product that has active ingredients. These commonly include things like Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol and other similar agents. The skin will be highly sensitive and these products will only irritate the skin further.
USE COLLAGEN STIMULATING PEPTIDES
As microneedling serves to stimulate the production of collagen, the skin needs higher amounts of collagen than normal to recover optimally. Collagen Stimulating Peptides assist in that process, further aiding in the stimulation of collagen production.
AVOID THE USE OF MAKEUP AFTER TREATMENT
It is imperative that you let your skin "breathe" and recover for 24 hours after the procedure. The skin channels are open, and using a makeup brush can penetrate the pores, especially if they are very thin, causing further irritation. Using a makeup brush that has been used before can contaminate the skin and, consequently, lead to infections. Wait 24 to 48 hours before you apply face makeup to give your skin the necessary recovery time.
USE A COOLING FACE MASK
After you have undergone microneedling, you may experience some skin inflammation or redness. Using a cooling mask will help reduce the inflammation or redness of the skin, giving your more comfort.
USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SERUM
Antioxidant serums have properties that assist in healing the skin. Serums assist in soothing the skin and further reduce irritation.
As you sweat the pores of your skin will reopen, and the bacteria on your skin may enter the skin punctures. This can lead to either a reaction or infection.
It is important to stay hydrated before and after your procedure to help your skin heal and rejuvenate faster.
