Many individuals wish to change a certain aspect of the skin but do not want the expense and long recovery time often associated with cosmetic surgery. Dermapen Micro Needling Skin Therapy is a revolutionary skin system that offers exceptional results in skin rejuvenation for the face or body that is as effective as Fractional Laser and IPL therapies and has a significantly shorter recovery time.
Dermapen Fractional Micro Needling can help men and women reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while minimizing pore size appearance. This unique micro needling skin procedure is effectively used for rejuvenating and tightening skin, minimizing acne or surgical scars, fading burn marks and diminishing stretch marks. Additionally, the revolutionary technology can be highly effective in relieving symptoms of skin disorders such as melasma and rosacea. Dermapen Skin Therapy can be effective in resolving difficult skin issues in dark skin types in addition to lighter skin tones. For those seeking a refined, revitalized and more youthful skin complexion, the Dermapen treament may provide effective results with little to no downtime and minimal to no discomfort.
Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Dermapen Fractional Micro Needling creates very small wound patterns to break old collagen chains and trigger the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin, which is the body’s natural healing response. It is this process that smoothes out the complexion and reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. Dermapen Micro Needling Skin Therapy utilizes a pen- like fractional device with unique micro needles that produce a specific vibrating, stamp like motion that is customized for each area of the face. By utilizing varied and controlled penetration levels, more effective results may be achieved. The vibrating hand piece encourages collagen production, allowing the body to begin healing immediately with visible results within four weeks. It is a highly specialized skin system that is more controlled, precise and effective on facial contours and delicate features than any other laser skin system.
Each person’s skin conditions are different and require different levels and intensity of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may require several sessions at specific intervals of time. The number of treatment sessions required will be determined during your consultation. During your consultation at the Chicago, Northfield or Hoffman Estates location, Dr. Anthony J. Geroulis can assess the specific region of the face or body that can benefit from Dermapen Fractional Micro Needling, in addition to deciding upon the intensity of treatment required and the severity of the skin condition to be addressed. It is vital to choose a clinician with a detailed understanding of facial anatomy whom has skilled technique and experience in performing Dermapen skin therapy procedures. It is the strategic and skillful manner of application that will make all the difference: to ensure a smoothness of result that is above all, refined and natural. It is recommended that the skin procedure be repeated every few months, especially for patients who are seeking a long-term effective problem resolution. Dermapen treatments can be performed on their own or as a complement to other skin procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peel and laser skin resurfacing, as long as there is a proper interval of time in between sessions, and the technology is expertly applied with a methodical treatment plan.
