Dermapen I Medical Needling
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as medical needling, stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin. Clinical depth dermapen treatments are available in the UK from botonics at our prestigous Harley Street clinic, in the heart of London’s premier private medical community.
Collagen induction therapy can significantly improve the appearance of:
- Facial and décolleté lines and wrinkles
- Skin radiance
- Acne, surgical, trauma and other scars
- Aged and sun damaged skin
- Stretch marks
- Pigmented skin
- Large pores
About Medical Needling Treatment
Saying goodbye to such skin complaints is easier than ever thanks to this exciting non-surgical skin regeneration therapy available at botonics. Dermapen treatment uses tiny micro-medical needles to create controlled trauma thereby harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This encourages regeneration and repair, leaving you with smoother, brighter, healthier, younger looking skin.
Dermapen Therapy offers amazing results without the inconvenient ‘down time’ that comes with more aggressive Laser treatments and medium and deep Chemical Peels. Because the process never involves heat or thermal energy, does not use harsh chemicals or cause unnecessary trauma, the skin heals quickly, requiring virtually no downtime.
Medical needling stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself without adding foreign substances to the body or taking anything away. Dermapen Therapy is a natural process which has an excellent safety profile when used by the trained cosmetic dermatology specialists at botonics.
Due to its notable safety profile, collagen induction therapy is suitable for use on darker skins and for use during the summer months when other treatments are more risky due to the increased UV sensitivity they can induce.
The treatment is fantastic for the repair of a broad range of skin complaints including acne and other scars, for the regeneration of the face, neck, décolleté and the back of the hands and for the treatment of stretch marks on thighs and tummies. We also use Dermapen in conjunction with Mesotherapy to better deliver active ingredients into the dermis.
Clinical depth medical needling improves all types of scars including acne, surgical, trauma and others. Deeper treatment is required in order to successfully break down larger clumps of collagen predominantly found in scars. Treatment also promotes the proliferation of normal collagen to replace broken down scar tissue.
Dermapen Versus Dermaroller
Dermaroller is basically a small rolling pin covered in needles. It was an effective first generation method of delivering micro-trauma, but has some significant disadvantages relative to the latest technology available – the Dermapen 3. During a derma roller treatment, the roller is rolled across the skin, leaving behind a trail of microscopic punctures. While the needle roller is effective, the rolling action of the device causes the needles to enter and exit the skin at an angle, creating lateral epidermal tears. The tearing is due to the simple mechanics of angular needle entry. Whilst not detrimental to the results, this makes the treatment much more painful, and often causes a longer downtime for the patient.
The Dermapen’s needles enter the skin at a 90 degree angle, eliminating the pain and epidermal tearing associated with dermal rollers.
The Dermapen has a smaller surface area allowing it to be used around tight area such as the eyes, nose and upper lip. The depths are fully adjustable allowing a more accurate method of treatment rather than the ‘variable pressure’ technique often used with Dermarollers. Most importantly, the Dermapen can deliver treatment at least 4 times faster than a Dermaroller, which means much less uncomfortable time on the treatment couch for clients.
Most Advanced Technology Available
At botonics, we prefer to use the latest and best available technology for all our treatments and procedures. Accordingly, we are one of the first clinics in the UK to make available the latest Dermapen 3, the most advanced medical needling device available.
The Dermapen 3 features 12 needle points in each of its tips and a stronger, smoother, more robust motor capable of delivering nearly 110 revolutions per second at it highest setting. The depth of penetration is fully adjustable between 0 to 2.5 mm to accommodate any region of the body and face. The superior AOVN technology of the Dermapen 3 allows for smooth, drag-less operation and optimal results.
