Dermapen: An innovation in needling

| Feb 27, 2013

The worlds most advanced micro-skin needling device

For many years doctors with an interest in aesthetic medicine have known the anti-ageing benefits of needling. The treatments however were tedious and slow, and when compared to the likes of laser and chemical peels the results were not drastic enough to offer the procedure regularly. That is until SAI introduced the Dermapen.

The science behind needling

dermapen2The principle idea behind needling is that micro injuries to the skin promote collagen and elastin growth as a by-product to healing. Essentially, as your body heals the skin increases the production of collagen and elastin and this production leads to fresher, younger looking skin.

By creating micro injuries there is no real tissue damage and the produced collagen and elastin are therefore in excess to normal skin condition. As collagen and elastin are key building blocks in your skin ability to fight the onset of wrinkles it makes sense to stimulate as much growth as possible.

What does the Dermapen treat?

By providing skin rejuvenation boosts the team at SAI have successfully treated a number of difficult skin conditions including:

  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Stretch marks

These conditions do have alternative treatment options, and the team at SAI will decide what treatment course is best for you, but in most cases the price and minimal downtime will lead them to favour the Dermapen.

What makes Dermapen so special?

In the past needling techniques were slow and painful, and as technology advanced doctors tried to invent “rollers” and other devices to speed up the treatment time. With all alternative options the doctor has minimal control over the depth of penetration and therefore comfort levels and due to the size of rollers, there was very little accuracy too.

The Dermapen offers a smaller tip for treatment of the entire face, but also of fully controllable head. The 11 needles can now be set at the required depth and at a prescribed speed. This means consistent and predictable results and the ability to quickly treat sensitive areas too.

Combination procedures

The Dermapen is a superb treatment option when you are undergoing any aesthetic treatment. As part of a matrix program the Dermapen will provide collagen assistance to additional treatments like:

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Botulinum toxin
  • Laser

The team at SAI are very proud to introduce this new Dermapen to you and remind you that should you have any questions, please feel free to post them on our Facebook page. We will stay in touch.
