DermaPen or microneedling is a procedure that involves the stimulation and regeneration of collagen and elastin fibers through mechanical stimulation by means of a specialized device with several microneedles, which punctures the skin. The resulting micro-injuries use the body's natural ability to repair the skin and physiological induction of collagen. The treatment also increases the permeability of the skin, thanks to which it is ready for specially concentrated cocktails.
Microcirculation and oxygenation of tissues is improved. The tension of the skin increases significantly, mimic wrinkles begin to reduce and the oval and contour of the face improves noticeably.
Microneedling is performed using a modern device based on the principle of automatic skin pricking with pulsating needles. Microneedles penetrate into the depth from 0.5 mm to 2 mm, which additionally enables the application of active substances deep into the dermis.
Microneedling is a treatment with a very wide range of effects. The application of a series of microneedling causes the activation of regenerative processes which successfully fight the effects of skin aging: wrinkles, lack of firmness or loss of face oval. It brings very good results in reducing scars and stretch marks. In combination with appropriately selected preparations it is an effective weapon in the fight against many other defects.
The variety of therapeutic indications and excellent effects make DERMAPEN a universal device, applicable to all skin types and the most common problems, so we achieve the following therapeutic benefits:
The fractional micropuncture process, by stimulating collagen production and triggering repair processes, improves skin tone and elasticity, improves blood supply and nutrition and reduces fine lines,
Discolouration - thanks to the ability to regulate the processes of melanogenesis, we achieve uniformity of skin color and structure,
Scar reduction - by improving the appearance of the skin we can achieve excellent results in acne scars as well as in postoperative and post-scalding scars. By stimulating regenerative processes we cause the body to produce new skin from the inside, which replaces the scar. So we act not only from the outside but also rebuild the structure of the skin from the inside of the body,
Stretch marks - here, a similar mechanism of fractional micro-puncture helps to treat stretch marks, which are a type of scar. Stimulation of stretch marks reduces their visibility and improves skin quality within them,
The fractional micro-puncture of the skin also allows the introduction of active substances into the skin, making the treatment even more effective. For this purpose mesotherapeutic cocktails, platelet-rich plasma, preparations based on hyaluronic acid, silica, amino acids are used depending on the indication and the treated skin area. This is a form of needle mesotherapy treatment.
This device is very versatile, so treatments can be performed on the entire face, neck, cleavage, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and scalp.
Thanks to its small size, it can be used in even the most difficult to reach areas, such as the area around the eyes or mouth.
It takes about 20-45 minutes. Depending on the size of the change
The skin is anesthetized with an anesthetic cream, then thoroughly disinfected. After applying the appropriate preparation to the skin, chosen according to the type of skin and the problem being treated, we make several passages in order to cover the treated surfaces as precisely as possible
During the treatment, an even redness of the skin is visible, with the possibility of spot bleeding
Despite a deep puncture of up to 2.5 mm, no hematomas or bruises occur
After the treatment, we use a protective mask, or appropriate nano-masks, which, thanks to their properties accelerating skin healing, relieve redness and swelling without inhibiting inflammation.
The skin is anesthetized with cream before the treatment. The treatment itself takes 15-30 minutes depending on the area. Each treatment is performed using a sterile disposable head with several very thin needles made of surgical steel.
The depth at which the skin is pricked is regulated by a specialist, performing the treatment depending on the area and indications for treatment. For example, on delicate skin around the eyes the depth will be punctured 0.5 mm, while on the area of scars and stretch marks 2 mm. The depth of punctures allows you to precisely determine which layer of skin is being treated.
The skin is punctured at a rate of up to 90 Hz, up to 1000 micro-punctures per second are produced.
The therapy is complemented by cocktails: hyaluronic acid, vitamins, peptides, amino acids, DMAE, organic silicon and others. Then, in order to calm the skin, a regenerative-healing collagen panel can be used
The recovery time after the treatment is short, the irritation can last up to 2 days. Immediately after the treatment avoid the swimming pool, sauna, exercise, hot baths and alcohol. Sunbathing is not recommended for several weeks. The skin should be well moisturized.

The number of treatments is an individual question and depends on the condition of the skin. As a rule, the first effects can be seen already after the first treatment. Most clients decide on a series of 2-5 treatments, which are carried out with strictly defined intervals. The price of the treatment with the Dermapen device depends on the location of the beauty salon and its reputation. It is also worth remembering that some companies offer discounts if you choose a package consisting of several treatments.
The most important effects after the treatments:
visible shallowing of wrinkles
skin thickening effect
reduction of shadows under the eyes
natural stimulation of collagen production
reduction of the visibility of pores
reduction of the visibility of stretch marks
reduction of acne and burn scars
skin color uniformity
increase flexibility and tension
hair loss treatment
Skin micro-puncture is particularly recommended for patients with scars, including acne, combined with TCA acid.
Dermapen 4 won many awards, including the prestigious BEST MEDICAL DEVICE award in Las Vegas in April 2012.
DERMAPEN 4 is the most technologically advanced, modern device for micro-needle skin mesotherapy.
DERMAPEN treatment. Thanks to the use of patented technology AOVN (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling), the DERMAPEN device is the only one to puncture the skin at a rate of up to 1300 punctures per second. The system of pulsating needles delivers active substances deep into the epidermis and dermis.
The resulting delicate skin micro-injuries utilize the natural, innate ability to physiological induction of collagen and tissue repair. Mesotherapeutic shakes, platelet-rich plasma and preparations of hyaluronic acid, silica, amino acids, vitamins, growth factors and peptides are used for injection.
The whole procedure takes about 30-45 minutes. We recommend a series of 4-6 such treatments at intervals of 2-4 weeks.
Similar effects as dermapen are brought by erbium-yag laser
Indications for treatment. The procedure is performed on: skin of the face, eyelids, neck, cleavage, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, head.
The device is small, handy, so you can reach it even in hard to reach areas of the body (e.g. around the eyes and mouth).
It is very important that the needles do not contain chromium and nickel, the treatment is also possible in allergy sufferers.
The treatment rebuilds the skin structure, acting from the outside and inside. It stimulates shallow growth factors and fibroblasts and production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
It improves skin tone, density and elasticity, nourishes and reduces wrinkles, reduces pores and capillaries, gently lifts, eliminates sun discolorations and evens out skin tone (stimulates melanogenesis), eliminates stretch marks and scars (acne, post-burn, post-traumatic, postoperative), improves facial contours, helps to treat alopecia.
Moreover, it is very safe, almost painless and does not cause infections or other undesired side effects.
Contraindications: pregnancy and breastfeeding, infections, autoimmune diseases, coagulation disorders, tendency to scarring, hypersensitivity to preparations used in mesotherapy, use of anticoagulants (e.g. aspirin), cancer.
Mesotherapy treatment with a micro-needle dermatolo-palm pen, through gentle punctures of the skin, stimulates it to produce collagen and improve skin elasticity. Among the visible effects of the therapy are, among others:
less visible scars and pores,
skin full of glow,
Elastic face skin,
Raising the facial oval,
Rejuvenated hands, smooth and free from wrinkles,
Velvety and firm body without cellulite.
In order to achieve the best results it is recommended to perform a series of three treatments (every 2 weeks), followed by 5 treatments (frequency: once a month). Depending on the individual reaction, the first effects are visible after the second or third treatment.
Acne scars take different sizes and shapes and can cause complexes. A new way to reduce or remove the scars is with the Dermapen device. Depending on the type and severity of the scars, the doctor will select appropriate parameters of the device. The effect of the treatment is to rebuild the skin structure and create new collagen fibres. This results in replacing the skin with new epidermis and improving skin elasticity. Before the treatment the skin will be anesthetized and active substances are applied (platelet rich plasma, silica or other preparations). During pricking, these substances are transported to deep layers of skin. The effect of active substances is even 1000 times better than traditional application of them on the skin.
The device stimulates natural regeneration processes and the skin is rebuilt. The aim of the therapy is to damage the deeper layers of the skin within the stretch marks. The depth of the puncture will be selected after the skin has been examined. Stretch marks are a type of scars that are atrophied. According to the direction of the stretched skin they form skin lesions, which are initially red and then take on a white color. They most often appear on the stomach, breasts, buttocks and thighs. In the initial phase (when stretch marks are red) it is quite easy to get rid of them with the Dermapen device. The use of platelet rich plasma or other active substances can be helpful in therapy. During the procedure anesthesia with cream is performed. Before the treatment, you should be healthy, and a week before, you should not consume aspirin and other blood-thinning medicines. After a few weeks the skin will be renewed, firm and tight. Its structure will be renewed and stretch marks will become shallow or removed. Depending on the size and severity of the stretch marks, a series of treatments may be necessary. The effect after the treatment lasts even several years, and it depends on the type of skin. After the treatment you can lubricate the skin with preparations that reduce swelling. After a few days the skin redness and soreness will disappear. For the day it is recommended to use creams with a filter, preferably SPF 50.
Depending on the depth and number of wrinkles, the treatment can be performed once or as a series of treatments. The number of treatments and the intervals between them will be determined by the doctor during the first visit. When performing an examination of the condition of the skin and the depth of wrinkles, the doctor may deem it necessary to use hyaluronic acid, platelet rich plasma or other active substances. The use of these substances may increase the effect of the therapy and help to achieve satisfactory results. By stimulating the skin to produce collagen and elastin, Dermapen affects its condition. After the treatment the skin will be taut, elastic and wrinkles will become visibly shallow. During the first visit the patient should tell the doctor about his expectations from the treatment. In this way the doctor will verify the possibility of obtaining effects and plan appropriate therapeutic actions. During the consultation the doctor will tell you about the course of the procedure and will recommend actions afterwards. It should be remembered that some diseases are contraindications for the procedure, so you should be honest with the doctor. Only a well conducted first consultation and a full medical history will allow to achieve the expected results.
The automatic skin pricking function used in Dermapen in Warsaw increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the degree of penetration of active substances into the skin, while reducing pain and discomfort to a minimum.
You may feel pain in the area given to the treatment. The frequency and intensity of the perceived discomfort will gradually decrease with each day.
Immediately after the Dermapen treatment you will feel a slight itching and short-term burning. For the next few days you may notice redness and swelling in the treated area. The skin will be slightly painful and tender. This condition is a normal reaction of the body to the treatment, does not require special care and disappears spontaneously.
Hematomatomas may also occur, as after each puncture of the skin.
After the dermapen treatment the patient must avoid the sun for six weeks. Right after the treatment, you can return to your daily activities. In order for the skin to regenerate faster, the doctor recommends the use of special cosmetics that are designed to relieve slight swelling of the skin.
Unfortunately, after the treatment, the patient may feel a slight burning, and on the next day the skin may be slightly reddened. The skin may also peel off, so it is important to follow the doctor's recommendations. After a week after the treatment the patient will notice the effects.
In order to make skin changes visible for longer, it is recommended to perform several treatments with dermapen. Ideally two to five. However, it is necessary to keep several weeks between treatments.
Unlike other cosmetic treatments, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peelings, MICROPEN does not affect the epidermal layer. This makes it possible to minimize the risk of possible complications after the procedure and the patient feeling discomfort.
Immediately after the procedure, the patient may experience a slight itching and short-term burning. For several days, redness, swelling or hematoma may occur in the treated area.
After the treatment, it is recommended that you do not use the sunbathing and solarium for 6 weeks.
