ABOUT MICRONEEDLING TREATMENTS
A Microneedling treatments most essential purpose is to rejuvenate, tighten skin and to repair the epidermis with minimal downtime and maximum results. The Dr. Pen™ visibly improves the appearance of:
RENEW YOUR SKIN
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The The microneedling machine is fitted with a cartridge using either 9, 12, 36 or 42 prong; microscopically thin needles which are used only once and disposed of. No needle should be used more than once due to bacterial infections and needle bluntness.
The needles oscillate up and down at 20,000 and 10,000 revolutions per minute, puncturing the skin, creating tiny punctures in the epidermis, causing micro-injury. The immune system will respond by repairing the area. Whilst repairing the damaged area, the body will reproduce new healthy collagen and elastin cells naturally. Any product you use on the open punctured epidermis after the treatment and at home, will be absorbed into the dermal layer. So be sure to use a superior product.
DOES IT HURT?
The short answer would be NO. Provided the therapist uses a good topical, epidermal anaesthetic and that enough anaesthetic is used; there should be no pain. After the treatments the skin will feel like you have a slight sun burn.
DERMA ROLLER VERSES THE DR PEN™
Dermal Rollers only have one needle length and it cannot be adjusted during the treatments for different areas. The cost of the derma roller is higher, as you have to purchase a hole roller or roller head instead of a small, cheaper cartridge.
The derma roller has a large head and cannot fit in small areas unlike the Dr. Pen™ tips that have a much smaller surface area so those small, intricate areas are easy to get into.
The Dermal Roller needles tear little incisions into the skin instead of puncturing little straight holes in the skin like the Dr. Pen™.
The Dr. Pen™ is easier to operate and less taxing on the operator as the machine does all the work. It simply has to be guided across the skin lightly. The cartridges are easy to install and the needle depth is easy to adjust in the areas that are thinner and more sensitive, making it easy to adjust the treatment to suit your clients needs.
The most important difference between Dermal Roller and the Dr. Pen™ is the micro-punctures per minute. The Dermal Roller make 3000 and 4000 holes per minute and the Dr. Pen™ make between 10,000 and 20,000 puncture holes per minute, depending on the model Dr. Pen™ used.
