For the anti-aging obsessed there are a couple of options – go under the knife or find alternative treatments. Fortunately, there are a lot of anti-aging gadgets on the market these days. The difficulty comes in finding ones that give good results and preferably don’t cost a fortune.
Skin needling is a practice that’s been used for a very long time due to its ability to improve product absorption and increase collagen production, therefore plumping up the skin. As we previously reported, derma-rollers are commonly used for needling, but they can be quite painful and harsh. Dermapen offers a gentler and, some would argue, more effective skin needling option.
Skin needling pokes tiny holes in the skin to allow for better penetration of skin products and, if the holes are deep enough, increased collagen production. The Dermapen is a handheld electric device that can be adjusted to penetrate the skin anywhere from .25mm to 2 mm deep, depending on the outcome desired and the area being treated. Plus, unlike needling rollers, the Dermapen can get into small areas and has much finer needles, so it reportedly causes less trauma to the skin. It also has a speed adjustment that can create between 225 and 1000 holes per second.
The device can be used to treat inssues such as surgical scars, acne scars, burns, wrinkles, stretch marks and uneven skin. If you’re interested in having Dermapen treatments done you can go to their page to find a practitioner in your area.
