What Is Dermapen Microneedling All About?
Have you ever heard about Chinese Acupuncture? Well, it is an ancient medical belief based on the concept that life energy, or ‘Qi’, circulates through the body through pathways like cars do on a highway. From there, it postulates that every physical pain and disease happens due to the disruption of that energy’s traffic.
And it also proposes that to cure them it would only require to stimulate it directly by puncturing it with needles. The technique is ancient, fraught with pseudoscience, and it cannot cure serious ailments. Yet, it served ad the basis for the Dermapen Microneedling treatment. This because it just so happens that the puncturing of the skin by needled signals stimulates the body to heal itself.
The healing process produces a set of proteins that, in addition to healing, make the skin look amazing! Thus, intentionally causing a lot of very tiny punctures results in massive amounts of skin-looking-amazing compounds releasing. Doing so in an area of the skin where you have several imperfections you would rather get rid off is very convenient. The resulting healing process your body initiates not only cure the ‘wounds’ the treatment caused. It also lightens up much of your imperfections, making them less visible after every session.
How Does Dermapen Microneedling Work?
A Dermapen needling session makes use of its namesake device, the Dermapen. This pen-like device actually has 12 needles at the tip of the device. With the device positioned vertically against the zone of skin, they are looking to treat; the doctor turns the device on.
The very tiny needless will move back and forwards extremely fast when turning on the device. And what that does when positioned over your skin is that it will start to prick and punctuate it. The punctures the needle does are so tiny they are not easily observable for the naked eye. The intentional harming of the patient skin is all part of the process with which Dermapen Microneedling heals you.
This because the treatment itself takes advantage and exploits your own body’s ability to heal itself. See, the human body activates its own healing process whenever it feels it just received damage. When it some to damage to the skin such as cuts and bruises, it reacts by regenerating the skin. Said process requires it triggering the generation of more collagen and elastin. Both of those proteins are instrumental in maintain healthy-looking skin with normal levels of elasticity. Meaning they are exactly what you would want your body to produce to make damage skin look better.
Your body interprets the pricks and punctures intentionally made by the Dermapen Microneedling work as wounds. Thus, it sets out immediately to heal those wound by producing amounts of collagen and elastin. Since the procedure made those wound exactly where your skin imperfections are, they will heal as well. The damaged skin is on its way out after a number of successful Dermapen Microneedling session. The newly produced, refreshed layer of skin will help deal with the scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, etc.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles – The wound healing process that yields all that collagen and elastin ends up making the skin tighter and thicker. Something that happens to work just great for the process of lightening up the fine lines and wrinkles in the face.
Scars – The forming of scarring tissue is how the body deals with the wounds of a deeper level. Despite the fact of how different they look from the rest of the skin; the body considers a scar to be a success in healing. Thus, it will do nothing more in order to make its appearance more in line with the rest of the skin. But a Dermapen Microneedling session just might do so. The puncturing and wounding of the Dermapen Microneedling and its resulting collagen and elastin stimulate the production of new, scar-less skin. Enough Dermapen Microneedling sessions can help lighten up those scars thanks to layers and layers of newly formed skin.
Stretch Marks – And just like it does with scars, the body does not consider the stretch marks anything to bother repairing. Never mind just how unappealing they look positioned against the rest of the skin. Yet, the Dermapen Microneedling can help you with it as well. The body’s reaction to the intentional wounding ends up creating new skin layers to cover the stretch marks just like with scars.
