Dermapen™ for Body
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 therapist has minimal control over the depth of penetration and therefore comfort levels and due to the size of roller consumables. Rolling methods create unnecessary trauma, are user-dependent, risk cross-infection, involve high consumable costs, are too large for small areas and display an undesirable perceived value.
The science behind needling:
The principle idea behind needling is that micro-injuries to the skin promote connective tissue and elastin growth as a by-product of healing. Essentially, as your body heals the skin increases the production of connective tissue and elastin and this production leads to fresher, younger-looking skin. By creating micro-injuries there is no real tissue damage and the produced connective tissue and elastin are therefore in excess to normal skin condition. As connective tissue 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.
How Does Micro-needling Work?
The Dermapen 3™ offers unparalleled connective tissue induction by harnessing the body's innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of connective tissue and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.
Dermapen 3™’s controlled precision promotes the three phases of CIT mechanics, thus allowing for new connective tissue growth to occur.
The first phase begins with the release of the body’s own growth factors, followed by a cascade of new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemotaxis, fibroblast proliferation, and matrix production.M
This proliferation of the body's tissue continues to release growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes, culminating in the second phase of CIT mechanics, where production of connective tissue type I, III, and IV, elastin, proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans, and the process of angiogenesis occur.
The last phase of CIT and the desired result of a Dermapen™ Treatment is the tissue remodeling process, where the skin’s vascular matrix matures, causing skin to tighten. The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is at the heart of this amazing product.

All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualizes of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consent forms. These may include but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
