What is the Dermapen Microneedling treatment?
Microneedling is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin.
It is composed of a single-use 12 needle cartridge and the device itself, where both the speed and the depth of the needle can be regulated. This device creates 1300 micro channels per second in the skin which in turn will stimulate the creation of new, native collagen and, at the same time, facilitates the delivery of products to the skin, such as hyaluronic acid or organic silicon, for further revitalization.
Treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face.
