Derma-pen micro-needling is most commonly use, on the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles but can also be used to treat common skin problems such as stretch marks and scars on different areas of the body. Let’s take a look at some of the possible reasons to get a derma-pen treatment:
To reduce the appearance of a scar: After the skin heals a wound and forms a scar, the body acts as though the area has been returned to normal. Derma-pen micro-needling can puncture the scar tissue and stimulate the skin to replace the damaged skin with new, unscarred skin.
To reduce the appearance of stretch marks: Like scarring, the body does not treat stretch marks as something that needs to be healed. Derma-pen micro-needling over stretch marks can initiate healing and promote the growth of new skin.
To minimise fine lines and wrinkles: The elastin and collagen induction, caused by wounding the skin with a derma-pen causes skin to tighten and thicken, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Derma-pen micro-needling can, therefore, be considered an anti-aging treatment.
Derma pen has become a very popular treatment as micro-needling helps address wrinkles, open pores, acne scarring pigmentation loose skin, and stretch marks. Micro-needling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep skin looking youthful, firm smooth, and radiant.
