Revita Skin Clinic chooses to use only the best devices available on the market, which is why we use dermapen for skin needling. Dermapen Skin Needling is minimally invasive and provides exceptional results in skin rejuvenation.
Dermapen uses oscillating medical-grade micro-needles to gently glide over the skin. The micro-needles are adjustable, ranging from 0.25mm to 2.5mm in length. This allows us to better tailor your dermapen treatment plan and target your skin at varying depths. Dermapen Skin needling causes microscopic wounds to promote the skin’s natural healing process, which encourages the production of new collagen. Collagen growth is crucial in skin repair. Skin needling is designed to improve skin texture, smooth wrinkles / fine lines, soften scars and stretch marks. It is suitable for all skin types and all areas of the face and body.A topical anesthetic is applied prior to the treatment to minimize discomfort so all that is felt is a mild pressure.
Unlike dermal rollers, Dermapen is a pen-like device that uses disposable surgical-grade needle cartridges for precise and sterile contact with the skin.
