Dermapen is a simple hand held device, which at it’s tip has multiple fine needles, with automatically vibrate when in use. The derma pen is passed in a circular motion over the treatment area, creating very fine holes in the skin. The effect of finely puncturing the skin, causes the skin to want to repair these multiple minor injuries, and so white cells, growth factors, and collagen and elastin stimulating factors are released into the skin stimulating the production of new healthy skin. The result being a skin rejuvenation. This is a low cost procedure very effective for the following conditions.
