Dermapen vs Derma Roller: Which Is Better?

Introducing Derampen, collagen induction skin therapy. Dermapen treats a wide range of skin conditions including acne scars, wrinkles, stretch marks and fine lines, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives.

With just a few treatments you’ll see a noticeable difference in skin tightening, texture appearance, elasticity, and firmness. In fact, 2 to 3 treatments provide a noticeable difference in your skin while 5 to 6 treatments show dramatic results. Treatments are done about 4 weeks apart for best results.

At-home skin rejuvenation treatments have skyrocketed in popularity as an affordable and convenient way to experience clinical skin treatments. And while their efficacy does vary from patient to patient, products like dermapens and derma rollers show that it’s possible to enjoy the benefits of a procedure like microneedling with the user’s convenience.

But what is the difference between dermapens from derma rollers? Both are microneedling devices that help rejuvenate the skin, but the dermapen is a more advanced tool that offers several benefits compared to the dermaroller. Aside from that, derma rollers are more accessible to the public, while dermapens are almost always found in medical and professional settings.

Dermapen is an advanced skin micro-needling system. The electronically powered multiple needles easily penetrate the skin or scar tissue to enhance and stimulate rejuvenation of the skin, while maintaining epidermal integrity and reducing downtime for the patient. The automatic vibrating function of the Dermapen increases the speed of the procedure and effectiveness, and provides absorption of medical grade products, with minimal discomfort. This treatment results in an increased production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which in turn improves your skin’s appearance, texture and firmness.

Based on our research there’s a little confusion in the market, so our marketing team suggested we write a piece on this question, even though it is inaccurately said. Dermapen is one of the most expensive microneedling pens on the market. Our Vaney Needle Pen is the most affordable on the market. Both pens do microneedling.
Microneedling of course, is growing ever more popular, and it’s easy to see why. It’s a great treatment option that is compatible with all skin types, whether it’s oily, normal, or combination and safe on any color. It provides the same results and benefits as more invasive procedures like laser or chemical exfoliation without the risks.
If you’re a professional looking for a cost-effective option to the Dermapen that can give you the same benefits to your patients, we recommend Vaney Needle Pen.
If you’re a consumer reading this article and considering the pros and cons of at-home microneedling VS booking an office appointment, and why you might choose one over the other, then keep reading.

A Quick Review on What Is Microneedling
Microneedling is the treatment involving needles to create superficial wounds on the skin. These micro injuries are only-surface level and are not meant to leave any scars or any evidence of the needle pricking your skin.
As intimidating as the procedure might sound, the treatment is specifically designed to boost collagen production and improve cell turnover. Patients report immediate results ranging from a brighter, more youthful-glowing skin to improved skin texture with just one microneedling treatment.

Microneedling has multiple benefits, including:
The acceleration or normalization of collagen production
Smoothing of acne scars and other skin texture problems
Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
Improvement in the appearance of hyperpigmentation spots
Enhanced complexion and more youthful appearance
Decrease stretch marks and increase hair follicle production
Microneedling cannot be done at home to the degree a professional can in a medical spa or clinic. Professional microneedling treatments are continuously adjusted to penetrate different depths for specific conditions that a special anesthetic must be used by a licensed professional. While there are plenty of products on the market billed as at-home DIY microneedling, consumers can’t legally buy a professional-grade microneedling device for use as part of their skincare regimen at home.

How Microneedling Improves Skin And Treats Wrinkles

Microneedling is a process where tiny puncture wounds are made on the upper dermis of the skin. As the skin heals, the area experiences greater amounts of blood flow. This brings much-needed nutrients to the area, increasing the production of elastin and collagen. For that reason, microneedling is often called collagen induction therapy.

Derma pens and derma rollers are two types of handheld devices used for microneedling the skin. They have a wide array of applications, ranging from treating acne marks, reducing scarring, and managing hair loss. While they work in the same way – primarily by needles making tiny puncture wounds in the skin – their mechanisms are very different.

Derma roller
Pure mechanical action, rolled against the skin
Short needles and consistent puncture depth
Can only roll horizontally against the skin
Readily accessible both inside and outside clinical treatment

Dermapen
Machine-powered pulses oscillating the needle point head
Longer needles with programmable puncture depth
Vertical angle of entry, more maneuverable overall
Somewhat difficult to access outside of professional and medical use

What Are Derma Rollers?
Derma rollers use a rolling head of hundreds of stainless steel needles to prick the skin. They’re typically used on wide areas like the face, neck, and abdominal area to treat wrinkles, acne scars, dark circles under the eyes, and other fine lines. Usually, they’re combined with other skincare products like hyaluronic acid.

Using a derma roller is fairly intuitive and doesn’t require a lot of training. However, it’s important to keep it properly sanitized and sterile, since the puncture wounds can develop into infections fairly easily. However, the maintenance of a derma roller doesn’t really require much outside of disinfecting and cleaning the needles, and perhaps finding a proper storage to prevent them from getting dull.

Derma rollers are an excellent choice if the patient only needs light treatment. They’re best suited for stretch marks and other light wrinkles that don’t need a lot of product or treatment. Combined with the right skincare product, using derma rollers can give the skin overall improvements.

What Are Dermapens?
Derma pens are handheld devices that are similar to derma rollers, but they work via oscillating pulses that quickly move the needle up and down the treatment site. Unlike rollers that move horizontally across the skin, dermapens move vertically. They’re more maneuverable than dermarollers since they’re easier to grip.

Using a dermapen requires little more time and investment since their needles and the pulses of the device can be modified to the patient’s liking. This allows for a more versatile treatment option, but it also means that there will be more trial and error before the user finds their ideal setting.

Dermapens are an excellent choice for many professional procedures since it improves the results while reducing the common drawbacks of using a derma roller. For this reason, they’re often limited to clinical and cosmetic practices, though there are a few commercial models that patients can buy and use at home.

Why Dermapens Are Better For Patients And Dermatologists
Despite their similarities in their method of action, dermapens are ultimately better for both patients and dermatologists. Aside from being a marked improvement in handling and functionality, dermapens offers some distinct advantages over derma roller use:

1. Precision treatment of wrinkles

Since derma rollers use a natural rolling action to puncture wounds on the skin, this means that the entire surface area of the roller will always hit the dermis. Derma rollers will always have a wide surface area of application, which may not be suitable for difficult areas like around the nose, eyes, lips and other dips and ridges on the body.

A dermapen has pinpoint precision with the exact area the needles touch. In addition, the settings can be configured easily to allow for more customization with how the dermapen works. This allows patients and dermatologists to consider factors like pain tolerance, expected results from the procedure, and other dynamic factors that can affect the treatment.

2. Less recovery and downtime needed after each procedure

One drawback with the horizontal action of derma rollers is that the lateral punctures leave the skin at an odd angle, which increases the likelihood of scarring and bruising. Because of the wide surface area of the derma roller, each pass increases the tearing and the trauma that the skin goes through.

This can lead to tenderness, bruising, swelling, bleeding, and other skin blemishes that can affect the quality of life of the patient. However, since dermapens can be applied with precision to prevent any unwanted areas from being punctured. The smooth action of the mechanisms also mean that there’s less chance of scarring.

3. More comfortable procedure

Using a dermapen is more natural than a derma roller, especially when it comes to handling the device. Derma rollers are limited by their overall surface area and mechanism of action, which makes it rough and unwieldy on curved surfaces. This makes treating areas like the scalp difficult because there’s no way to gauge or control how much pressure is required.

Dermapens can be adjusted right down to the needle depth, so all the user needs to do is to adjust the settings to account for differences in treatment area and overall pressure. The procedure is more comfortable since it doesn’t last as long, and there’s no need to maneuver around to treat tricker areas.

4. Controlled method of penetration

Using a derma roller can be unwieldy because of the wide surface area and the amount of needles in the roller. This doesn’t afford a lot of control for the user, since they’re limited by the roller’s overall size and the rolling action required to use the tool effectively.

But the tool design of the dermapen is different. Since it’s held vertically, the user can adjust the angle and the area affected to exactly how large or how small they want to cover. This allows for shallow treatments of wide areas and intense treatments of targeted areas for better results.

5. Versatile tool in professional hands

Derma rollers have a basic method of action, and consequently standard results. Aside from gross mishandling of the tool itself, patients can more or less expect some results after consistent and standard use, but nothing too visible or out of the ordinary.

However, dermapen use is more targeted and has better options for treatment compared to using a derma roller. This allows for visible results and flexible treatment plans if the user is skilled enough with operating it. For dermatologists and cosmetic practices, skilled use of a dermapen can help them give their clients results that are closer to their expectations.

6. Targeted application of serums and cosmetic solutions

Compounds like peptides and topical hyaluronic acid often work well with derma rollers, but they’re a better fit for dermapens and their targeted needles. Because these serums often work on specific areas of the face and body, the puncture depth and overall maneuverability of the dermapen make it a better choice.

This is especially handy with products like PEP growth factor, which may improve the appearance of hair and reduce the signs of acne scars on the treatment site. With consistent use, it has the potential to boost the results obtained by microneedling alone.

One thing that’s crucial to remember with using a dermapen is that it does require more time, investment, and cost. Derma rollers have the advantage as far as accessibility and pricing is concerned, but dermapens offer better results at premium prices. Ultimately, the choice between which tool to use is best left after taking those factors into account.

Why Consider Microneedling For Your Clients?
Microneedling is often compared to other treatments like dermaplaning. Microneedling and dermaplaning might both be skin rejuvenation treatments but they don’t exactly produce the same results. Dermaplaning is a “surface only” procedure where the top layer of dead skin cells are exfoliated off. Patients will see an immediate glow to their skin surface. Without facial (or velous) hair covering most of your face, make up glides on more smoothly and skincare products absorb a lot more quickly. Although these improvements might be significant for some patients, others might want a more drastic change to their appearance and skin health.
That’s where microneedling comes in. The handheld device creates small punctures to the skin, triggering its natural healing properties. This increases blood flow and stimulates collagen production — both of which are critical in maintaining or restoring a healthy skin appearance.
The main difference between microneedling and dermaplaning is just how extensive their results are. For patients who are looking for a quick and non-invasive exfoliation treatment, dermaplaning offers exactly that. The exfoliation isn’t similar to chemical peels where active ingredients penetrate the skin and work to break the dead cell barriers; dermaplaning is a physical exfoliating treatment designed to clear out the uppermost layer of your skin. It won’t address problems like hyperpigmentation and fine lines.
But for patients who have more extensive skin needs and want to treat problems like hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkles, poor texture, and a lack-luster complexion, microneedling is the better treatment option for these problems.

Microneedling VS Dermapen
Again, the question is wrong, but your patients are asking. Dermapen is an automatic microneedling device consisting of a cartridge with 12 microneedles. This is a professional-grade device typically found in spa and dermatology clinics. The tips can be adjusted from 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm which allows treatment into the dermis to create real dramatic skin improvements. If used incorrectly, microneedling can actually cause more harm than good.
Compared to at-home “microneedling” tools, professional tools like the Vaney Needle Pen provide more control and precision, which is important when you’re trying to treat different skin conditions on different parts of the face and hard-to-reach areas like the corner of the nose or around the eyes. Your practitioner has knowledge of the skins working aspects and how to use this treatment for the safest and best outcome.
On average, a microneedling session costs between $150 and $700 each, depending on the local market. Patients can expect to shell out as much as $400 to get the best results from a microneedling treatment, regardless of who manufactured the pen – us, Dermapen or whoever.
Meanwhile, home microneedling pens cost anywhere from $29 upwards, depending on the quality. These disposable microneedling pens are affordable tools you can use at home but at what risk. Problems with increased pigmentation, infection and even reversing collagen production can be caused by improper use. Having a regimented home skin care routine along with professional microneedling treatments will give the best outcome.

Dermapen: Is It Worth It?
Not only is the Dermapen 3 times the cost of the Vaney Needle Pen, the needles are almost 3 times the cost. We are confident the Dermapen is not worth it and our hundreds of happy customers would agree. What patients care about is that their microneedling treatment is performed by a skilled professional, and of course, results.
What About At-Home Tools or Dermarollers and At-Home Microneedling?
If your client brings it up, here are some key points to help them consider. The truth is that at-home treatments are no comparison to in-clinic sessions. While at-home and professional microneedling tools look the same, there is a critical difference: the length of the needles. On average, the length of the needles on an in-office microneedling tool is .25mm to 2.5mm, sometimes reaching 3mm to address scarring. In contrast, the needles on an at-home dermaroller is usually only between .25mm and .5mm.

Here are things you might want to consider when deciding between an at-home roller or booking a dermapen appointment:
Cost: You can get some results with a dermaroller without the hefty price tag of a Dermapen appointment. But that comes with some limitations and risks. Yes, a 0.5mm MT dermaroller, which is one of the needle settings on the Dermapen, costs $29 compared to the $300 cost of a single session but specific areas cannot be treated with a dermaroller due to its size.
Limitations: Although derma rollers can be used at home they do not have the ability to adjust depth for different areas of the face for different skin conditions. The Dermapen, operated by a licensed professional has the ability to treat into the dermis where collagen is produced. There are lots of articles and videos that can teach you how to use a dermaroller but there will always be limitations. Do your research before you incorporate dermarollers into your routine.

Cross-contamination: Although microneedling can lend that dewy glow immediately, in home dermaroller treatments come with the risk of spreading germs and causing infection. With not having the ability to properly clean the derma roller, shin cells, blood and other debris can be pushed into the open wounds during the procedure. Patients typically need to routinely have microneedling once every four to six weeks to get the best results and it is best to do 3 aggressive treatments that are safe then risk infection. For scars and stretch marks, experts typically recommend 3 to 6 treatments until the appearance of stretch marks and scars begin to improve. Keeping up with your routine with Dermapen can be expensive, but advanced protocols are the only way to actually make visible change.

Skin injury: Using a derma roller causes undue injury to the skin because of its round configuration. In addition the needles become dull after each treatment causing more trauma. If your skin is particularly sensitive, inform your doctor and they will start with a less aggressive dermapen treatment. Dermarolling. Buying a dermaroller and performing microneedling at home looks appealing but at what cost.

Here are situations and reasons why booking a professional microneedling session is better than your patient trying to DIY their own microneedling at home:
You need dermatology-grade skin care products: You might need more advanced skin care products to treat your issues. Using professional-grade products at your dermatologist’s clinic is always the better option for safety as well as results
You’re doing microneedling with RF therapy: Some patients combine microneedling with radiofrequency therapy treatments to get the results they want. Since you can’t do RF at home, again they want to go see a professional.
If you want to use microneedling as an occasional treatment, you might be better off scheduling infrequent visits with your dermatologist or favorite local med spa.

Tips For Successful Microneedling
Our marketing team said we needed to find a way to keep this heading at the top for SEO, so we decided to remind you to reinforce to your patients that the only way they should try microneedling at home is if you are offering in-home visits. Even then, not ideal because of the need for a clean and sterile environment.
Set realistic expectations. Results from microneedling vary depending on skin problems. For patients who are looking to improve the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation, final results will be visible 3 months after a series of microneedling treatments..
Set a microneedling schedule that works for your patient. Make sure they understand the frequency needed to achieve their desired results.
Purchase, use and maintain a quality microneedling pen. Do research on multiple microneedling pens. Expensive pens don’t always mean it’s good or better quality. It’s best to buy your pen and cartridges from a reliable and proven source. (when you compare Vaney Needle Pen to your other options, we’re easily the best value)
Treatments should not be done more frequently than every four weeks, as it will actually reverse collagen production. Microneedling stimulates the regrowth of cells, and this process organically takes a few weeks to occur. Microneedling speeds up the process, but it doesn’t accelerate it any further with continuous use. It is possible to do too much microneedling or dermarolling and harm your skin.
Always use a new cartridge for each treatment and never share a cartridge with anyone. For patient safety they are single use only and should not be sterilized.
Continually adjust needle depth for area being treated and the skin condition that is being targeted.
Increase the effectiveness of your clients’ microneedling sessions by applying topical skincare products. Microneedling promotes better absorption providing maximum benefits in the process. Be careful not to over exfoliate the face; using AHAs and BHAs might not be ideal if you see signs of discomfort.

What is Dermapen – The Dermapen Microneedling Pen is the World Leader

(MICRONEEDLING)
BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL RESULTS.

Truly beautiful skin is soft, supple, and glowing. Yet with sun damage, acne, wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, and sun spots, a luminous complexion can be difficult to achieve. A large body of research supports the use of an exciting technique to aid in getting great skin: Collagen Induction Therapy.

Collagen Induction Therapy, also called Dermapen Microneedling, or Microneedling, is a minimally invasive technique that boosts your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, two of the most important substances in maintaining plump, youthful, glowing skin.

A popular method known as micro-needling has always been used in the treatment of stubborn skin ailments that we deal with every day.
This method is also efficient in giving us healthy looking skin and keeping the skin generally healthy.
Micro needing can be done by a trained technician. You can even do it on your own but after thorough research.
The newest available tool on the market that can be used for this purpose is known as Dermapen.
Dermapen is a micro-needling device that can be handheld. It basically functions through puncturing the skin with the aid of series of small needles.
This stimulates collagen production in the skin. Collagen stimulation can result in a variety of benefits including the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a motorized pen-like microneedling device used by a medical or skin-care professional to improve skin tone and texture. Microneedling with the Dermapen can improve fine lines and wrinkles, scars (especially acne scars), stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and large pores.

It’s used mostly on the face, but the Dermapen can treat skin anywhere on the body, including the neck, chest, stomach, and thighs.

Dermapen Claims and Features-What You Need To Know?
Dermapen has been created by a company known as Dermapen. This is a company that has been in existence since 1976.
Over the years, it has grown to maintain a business that is sustainable. It is therefore unique because it uses cutting-edge technologies.
Since Dermapen’s development in 2010, it has grown to be popular and has become among the highest ranked micro needling technologies in the market.
The company manufacturers claim that Dermapen works effectively when it comes to the reduction of scars, face wrinkles, and facial lines.

While puncturing the skin, this tool is claimed to initiate healing, therefore, replacing damaged skin with new skin.
It is also claimed to leave the skin youthful by producing collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin will cause the skin to tighten and also thicken.

Dermapen Ingredients – Are they Safe & Effective?
Dermapen has a series of needles that moves across the skin while puncturing it. As it punctures the skin, it facilitates the reproduction of natural collagen.
This tool also creates fine channels across the skin. These channels allow for the absorption of nutrients into the skin, therefore, stimulating better and faster results.
You will, therefore, have no problem with applying your potions and lotions into your skin because the skin has already been prepared to absorb them to work efficiently. This will give you a clearer and youthful looking skin.

Dermapen Review – How Does It Work?
Dermapen works in a unique way through a method of puncturing the skin. The Dermapen works through a spring-loaded automated function.
Through this mechanism, it moves up and down perpendicularly across the skin. It punctures the skin while moving perpendicularly while using eleven evenly-spaced microneedles.
The device is supposed to be moved across the face because it the facial skin we are dealing with.
The working mechanism of Dermapen causes the stimulation of healthy collagen. The tiny punctures that have been created also allow for the absorption of nutrients into the deeper layers of the skin making it function optimally.
The needle oscillations are also quite fast and this is advantageous because while it glides across the skin, it minimizes the chances of damaging the dermal layers of the skin.

What are the Advantages of Dermapen?
May stimulate natural collagen production in the skin.
Creates fine channels in the skin allowing for better absorption of active ingredients into the skin therefore making it look clearer and more youthful.
May eliminate facial lines, face wrinkles, and scars.
It is also effective in treating surgery and burns, stretch marks, alopecia among others.

What are the pros and cons of Dermapen?

Pros
Dermapen can be adjusted for your skin thickness and concerns.
The fine needles on the Dermapen create precise pinpricks, making them less likely to cause long-term texture damage than some other microneedling devices.
After microneedling with Dermapen, your skin can absorb serums and other skin-care products more effectively.

Cons
Although the Dermapen is considered safer than other microneedling devices, it can cause scarring if used improperly by an inexperienced provider.
While microneedling is considered safe for all skin types and tones, people with olive, brown, and dark skin are at a higher risk of pigmentation issues if damage is caused.
People with active acne, eczema, psoriasis, cold sores, or warts—or who are currently taking Accutane or blood thinners—should avoid any kind of microneedling, including the Dermapen.

How does Dermapen microneedling work?

Short, fine needles on the tip of the device puncture the epidermis and dermis, creating micro injuries that stimulate a natural wound-healing response. Over the coming weeks, this increases cell turnover and boosts elastin and collagen production so that your skin repairs and renews itself. This technique is also known as collagen induction therapy.

Because Dermapen results rely on your skin’s natural regeneration process, providers recommend a series of three to five treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, for best results. This allows time for the skin cells to turn over and for new collagen to be produced.

Microneedling involves using a mechanized device called a dermapen to make thousands of miniscule needle punctures in the outermost layers of the skin. By precisely controlling the depth, spacing, frequency, and pattern of these needle pricks, the dermapen stimulates your body to make more collagen in the areas where it needs it the most. Microneedling has been scientifically demonstrated to show improvement in fine lines, freckles and sun spots, scars, burns, pitted and non-pitted acne scars, stretch marks, and large pores.

How can you care for your skin after a Dermapen treatment?

Immediately afterward, you may have some swelling or redness. This should clear up within a few hours, but you’ll want to be careful with your skin for a few days. With needled microchannels open, your skin will be particularly vulnerable.

Here’s how you can really take care of your skin for the first few days after your treatment.

Avoid direct sun exposure. While it’s super-sensitive, your skin may be more prone to sun damage. Reach for a physical sunscreen with titanium dioxide or zinc oxide instead of a chemical one, which may seep into your skin.
Go without makeup for at least 24–48 hours. Anything you apply may penetrate your pores, and previously used brushes and applicators can introduce bacteria.
Keep your skin care simple. Active ingredients (like alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy acids and retinoids) can cause irritation, so it’s best to stick to a gentle cleanser and hydrating moisturizer unless your provider recommends otherwise. To boost results, they may OK an antioxidant serum or a skin-care product with collagen-stimulating peptides. Your skin will more readily absorb anything you apply.
Cool it on the exercise. Working up a sweat can aggravate your skin, and you run the risk of stirring up infection-causing bacteria.

CAN MICRONEEDLING BE COMBINED WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?
Microneedling can be combined with a liquid treatment on the skin surface– such as growth factors, vitamin C, or platelet rich plasma (PRP)– to further improve skin quality, evenness, and texture. This is highly effective because the skin absorbs more of these growth factors as a result of microneedling treatment. The so-called “vampire facelift” (shown on Bar Rafaeli and Kim Kardashian, above) is an example of this combination.

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM A MICRONEEDLING OR DERMAROLLER TREATMENT IN A SPA?

Spa & home needles are shorter and less effective.

In a spa or home-use setting, microneedling devices and dermal rollers have needles that are much shorter than the ones used by a plastic surgeon. A spa or home device will have short, fine needles that are 0.2 mm in depth and can be used two times a week or more. In contrast, medical microneedling performed by a qualified plastic surgeon uses long, fine needles with depths ranging from 2 to 7 mm, depending on your concern (in other words 10 to 35 times deeper than the spa model).

Spa & home needles can hurt your skin and cause scarring.

Microneedling must be done with a device that hits your skin surface at a 90 degree (perpendicular) angle, in order to minimize scraping, scratching, or other trauma that could cause scarring. Inexpensive spa devices often have poor quality needles that are slightly angled or bent and can thus hurt your skin. Similarly, circular devices like dermal rollers don’t hit the skin at a straight 90 degree angle and can be injurious for this reason as well.

WHY NOT JUST USE A LASER OR CHEMICAL PEEL?

Microneedling is preferable to laser and chemical peels in many patients because it is safe for use in all skin tones, all parts of the body (including stretch marks on the abdomen), and all times of life (including pregnancy and breastfeeding). In addition, the downtime with Microneedling is quite short, with transient redness usually lasting less than a day (as compared to one week or more with peels or laser).

Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy is also a great technique for those who are concerned with their complexions but are relunctant to try Botox or fillers. Because it is mechanical and doesn’t involve any chemicals or neurotoxins, the technique is reassuring to many.

DOES IT HURT?

Although Microneedling sounds scary (thousands of needles going into your face!), it is actually quite painless. Dr. Devgan uses lidocaine numbing cream on your face to keep you completely comfortable, and you are wide awake during the procedure. The experience feels similar to a deep facial with a bit of extra vibration. At the end of the procedure, your face will be slightly red and tingly, as the growth factors, vitamin C, or platelet rich plasma absorb into your skin. By the next day, you will be able to return to work and play, with minimal downtime.

Improved skin appearance begins to occur almost immediately and continues for 4 to 6 weeks. For best results, Microneedling can be repeated as frequently as every 6 weeks, or as infrequently as 2-3 times a year, depending on your concerns.

IS IT EFFECTIVE?
The before and after photos of Microneedling speak for themselves. Although individual results and situations vary, this technique has been demonstrated to be effective in facial wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, burns, surgical scars, and stretch marks.

Dermapen vs. derma roller: What’s the difference?

A derma roller is a manual handheld device used to roll microneedles of fixed size over the skin, while the Dermapen has the ability to adjust needle depth (ranging from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm) and rapidly punctures the skin vertically as the device moves across the treatment area.

An often understated aspect of this ‘nuts and bolts’ difference is that each Dermapen needle penetration is perpendicular to the skin surface with every oscillation, whereas a derma roller enters at one angle, changes its angle while in the skin surface, and exits at a different angle, which can create more of a tearing motion. Because of this, derma roller treatments carry a higher risk of scarring, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture.

The Dermapen’s small, 12-needle tip provides precision and allows different areas of the skin to be treated to different depths. The tips are also single-use, ensuring new, sterile needles for every treatment.

What are the Possible Side Effects of Dermapen?
Side effects are not supposed to be experienced after treatment from a general point of view. This treatment, however, reacts differently to different people and so some could experience facial redness.
This might last for 12-48 hours after treatment. Some users might also experience some level of discomfort in sensitive areas such as in the skin around the mouth.

Dermapen Skin Needling – How does Dermapen work?

What is Dermapen Skin Needling?
Dermapen is our No.1 Anti-Ageing treatment and uses advanced skin needling technology, to stimulate collagen production and skin cell renewal – resulting in smoother and more youthful looking skin.

Erase your skin’s past with our most popular anti-ageing treatment. Dermapen uses advanced skin needling technology to stimulate the production of collagen, creating smoother, healthier skin. It reduces acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring with less down time and better results than ever before.

Dermapen Skin Needling is a popular and innovative anti-aging and scar improvement procedures designed to rejuvenate the skin. As the name suggests, Dermapen is a small, pen-like tool which delivers multiple tiny punctures to the skin. While it’s small in stature the Dermapen is big on results! Micro needling devices are proven to be an effective treatment for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, treating acne scars, improving skin texture, minimising pores and providing overall rejuvenation of the skin.

Dermapen is Ideal for
The result is a skin resurfacing effect which also improves many skin conditions such as:
redness from rosacea and acne scarring,
pigmentation,
rough skin texture,
uneven skin tone,
enlarged pores,
fine lines and wrinkles,
loss of elasticity
Pigmentation
Sunspots

How does Dermapen work?
Suitable for all skin types, the Dermapen works at a precise needle depth, rapidly penetrating the skin to produce tiny micro punctures. This technique stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to produce the two proteins needed for supple, smooth and youthful skin – collagen and elastin. But don’t worry if you are needle-phobic, the microneedles contained within the Dermapen are so tiny you won’t see them.

Dermapen provides incredible anti-ageing, scarring and skin rejuvenation results due to its patented micro needling technology.

The Dermapen is a small, pen-like device containing many tiny needles. They vibrate and penetrate the skin at extremely high speed, creating 1296 tiny micro channels in the skin every second. By creating these micro-injuries, the skin’s natural healing process is activated, stimulating new collagen and elastin production.

How effective is Dermapen?
The Dermapen treatment is a natural, mechanical process which works effectively without the use of chemicals for noticeable results. Skin is clearer, firmer and more toned with less fine lines, wrinkles, redness and visible scarring after a series of Dermapen treatments.

Is micro needling good for your skin?
Skin needling stimulates collagen, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, improve skin tone and refine pores. Acne scarring and redness will also benefit from micro needling, as well as improving overall skin texture and quality. A Dermapen treatment generates new collagen for smoother, firmer skin. The process also helps the skin to better absorb your skincare products for ongoing healthier skin.

What are the side effects?
Possible side effects including slight swelling, temporary discomfort, minor redness, possible, bruising, dryness and light flaking.

Is Dermapen good for acne?
Dermapen is not the ideal treatment if you have active breakouts although is ideal once you have cleared your skin, this treatment can help improve the appearance of acne scarring. In the same way that the Dermapen improves the appearance of ageing through increased collagen and elastin production these also help to reduce and rebuild acne scars.

Is Dermapen Skin Needling safe?
There are no chemicals or ingredients used that sensitive skin may react to, it is a mechanical procedure which stimulates the skin’s natural healing process through collagen induction therapy. Dermapen Skin Needling is considered safe for all skin types as it doesn’t use any products or active ingreditents this treatment stimulates your bodies natural healing process and requires little to no downtime post treatment. However is not recommended in conjunction with some acne medications or If you have psoriasis, eczema, open wounds or active cystic acne, keloid scarring or if you are pregnant.

How painful is this treatment?
Dermapen treatments can cause some discomfort. Although numbing cream is used for many other skin needling treatments, the vibrating effect of the Dermapen interrupts the pain receptors in the skin which makes numbing cream unnecessary. The Dermapen isn’t rolled or dragged across the skin like a dermal roller, so the microscopic punctures it makes are clean, direct and cause little to no pain because there is no tearing of the epidermal layers.

How many treatments will I need?
Everyone’s skin is different, and the Dermapen treats a range of skin concerns so the number of micro needling treatments needed will vary from person to person. We recommend repeating your Dermapen treatments every 4-6 weeks until you achieve your desired results. For scar reduction an average of three to six treatments are normally recommended with lasting results commonly seen six treatments.

What will my skin look like straight after my treatments?
Directly after a treatment your skin may appear flushed, with slight redness and possible mild swelling. Depending on the intensity of the treatment you may also experience light flaking. The majority of the redness and swelling should subside within 24 hours with the average healing process being two to five days.

How can I maximise results
Skin needling and Radio Frequency (RF) are skin treatments usually performed separately to induce new collagen production. We recommend combining Dermapen Skin Needling and RF Skin Tightening together in a single treatment to maximise their effects. RF treatments work by generating heat which also stimulates new collagen production, so by combining the two you can get even more effective results even faster.

How long do Dermapen results last?
Everyone’s skin is different. Generally, you should see the Dermapen beginning to work as your skin starts to heal within four to seven days after your first treatment. Within four to six weeks you are ready for your next session where the positive results will then begin to become cumulative as your skin’s natural ability to produce collagen is stimulated. Another benefit of Dermapen treatments is that the renewed skin is better able to absorb the nutrients from your skincare products, so they work more efficiently and cost-effectively for ongoing results.

After care instructions
Your Clear Skincare therapist will provide post-treatment instructions and recommend home-care products to continue your treatment at home.

Immediately After Treatment
Your skin may feel hot for up to 24 hours post treatment. You may experience slight swelling and puffiness particularly around the eyes. Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Your skin should be kept dry for 6 hours post-treatment.

You are puncturing your skin when you choose microneedling. There will likely be bleeding and subsequent risk of infection. In short, if you’re serious about microneedling at home, you need to make sure you know what you’re doing.

Choose the right length needle. This is essential. A needle that’s too small won’t be effective, but a needle that’s too large could be extremely painful and damaging. Your device will likely come with some guidelines. However, understand that anything over a millimeter in length is not recommended. Consider erring on the side of smaller and working your way up if you feel it’s necessary.

Replace device pieces as recommended. The Dermapen has needle attachments, or “cartridges,” that can be purchased separately and in bulk. The manufacturer recommends never reusing the Dermapen needles.
Clean your device properly. If you insist on reusing your needles, there is a risk of infection. Remember that these needles will come into contact with your blood. If they have bacteria on them, you’re asking for problems. Disinfect your device between every use with skin friendly agents (i.e. not bleach). Allow the device to air dry before storing it.

Consider training. Dermapen urges users to understand the risks associated with incorrect use of the Dermapen product. In fact, they recommend (and provide) training to better prepare you for the self-application process. You don’t need to undergo training to be able to use Dermapen or similar products, but if you’re serious about microneedling you should consider it.

Finally, understand that with the FDA’s iminent involvement there could be some significant changes to at-home devices in the coming years. It might be worth waiting before you spring for an expensive product. In the meantime, consider having your Dermapen microneedling done by a professional.

If you’re interested in professional microneedling, find a nearby doctor to explore your procedure options.

How Micro Needling Dermapen Works

Dermapen microneedling pen provides an unparalleled response via the fractional delivery of micro needles, creating micro-injuries to the epidermis and dermis. This is “how micro needling derma pen works” by creating these micro-injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to repair the skin through the normal physiology of skin. The first phase begins with the release of the bodies growth factors and the further cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemotaxis, fibroblast proliferation and matrix production. This proliferation of the body’s tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes. The second phase of wound healing involves deposition of collagen III, IV and I, elastin, proteoglycans, and GAGs. The last phase results in tissue remodeling where the skins vascular matrix matures and skin tightening. The body’s ability to heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process.

Micro Needling Dermapen has 12 needles on the very tip and these 12 needles are the ones that are used to puncture the top layer of the skin as the Dermapen glides over the area being treated. Usually, the Dermapen will be positioned vertically over the skin and when it is turned on, a motor that is found inside the pen will start making the needles to move rapidly back and forth on the skin surface creating the punctures and these needles have been created in such a way that they can rotate in a slight way. These punctures created in the process are usually aimed at opening up the pores for a period of time only.

When a person hurts themselves, the skin will generally initiate skin repair by stimulating growth factors that will, in turn, lead to the generation of collagen and elastin. Therefore, when the punctures are made using the Dermapen, the skin will treat the punctures as wounds and therefore initiate healing. This means that micro-needling tend to trick the skin to produce collagen and elastin to promote ‘healing’ and the effect will be a rejuvenated skin.

Dermapen is used mostly for face wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and facial lines. When one is injured and the skin forms a scar, or if they have a stretch mark the body will treat these as though that area was repaired. Therefore having the punctures created in the scar tissue will cause the skin to initiate healing and, therefore, the damaged skin will tend to get eliminated and replaced with new skin. For wrinkles and face lines, basically, the produced collagen and elastin will cause the skin to thicken and also tighten leaving the skin looking youthful.

Generally, Dermapen has been effective and quite advantageous over other skin treatment procedures. This has seen to it that its popularity keeps growing by the day.

What makes the Dermapen unique is the method by which it punctures the skin. Other types of microneedling devices, known collectively as derma rollers, look like small wheels with outward facing needles evenly spaced across the surface. These needles create tiny punctures in the skin as the wheel is dragged across it.

The Dermapen, on the other hand, works via a spring-loaded automated function. It moves up and down perpendicular to your skin, puncturing it with eleven evenly-spaced microneedles as you move the device across your face.

According to the manufacturers, this microneedling method causes less damage to the epidermis because the needles themselves aren’t dragged in and out of the skin at odd angles. This also means less bleeding and discomfort.

Just as with older microneedling devices, the Dermapen needles can be easily adjusted to suit individual needs
