The Dr Dermic pen is a micro needling device. It has an 11 pin head with adjustable depths and speeds. The high speed of these needles considerably reduces treatment time; this decreases patient discomfort and speeds recovery. The Microneedle Cartridges are single use, which eliminates the risk of infection and are more cost effective than traditional rollers.
Induction Therapy and Micro-Needle Therapy.:
Micro-Needling is the ultimate non-surgical and non-ablative treatment. As the very fine microneedles puncture the skin, they trigger the body’s healing response. This “minor trauma” that is caused in the lower levels of the dermis 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 neovascularisation and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Dr Dermic Pen V’s Traditional Dermal Rollers: Dermica Pen V Roller
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 its 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.
Dr Dermic Pen Micro Needling V’s Laser Treatments:
Laser treatments cannot be done on skin of colour, while skin is tanned, while wearing false tan or if the skin is going to be exposed to the sun (hypersensitivity to the sun) because it burns the outer layer of the skin. This means that the epidermis is thinned, making it far more susceptible to lines and wrinkles, particularly in more aged skin.
Micro needling is safe on all skin types and does not cause hypersensitivity to the sun. The Dr Dermic Pen is a safe facial rejuvenation treatment to do during the summer months. A physical sun block is always advised, all year round!
The Dr Dermic Pen only causes minor trauma the epidermis, with the vertical insertion of the fine needles, and therefore leads to thickening of the epidermis. This makes the skin less likely to wrinkle so easily.
The healing time after micro needling is also a lot shorter, again because the epidermis is still intact.
