Efficient to delay the cutaneous aging and visibly improve the quality of the skin, the Dermapen is a
micro-needling technique developed in aesthetic and anti-aging medicine. Not much invasive, this
treatment consists in realizing under-cutaneous injections using micro-needles to stimulate the
production of collagen and elastin. This process is particularly indicated to correct the crinkled aspect
of the skin, the blurry complexion, the dilated pores, the acne scars or – associated to PRP (Platelet
Rich Plasma) – the stretch marks. Clinique du Lac can tell you more about this anti-aging method.
From the natural process of cutaneous aging, which starts at 30, the skin of the face looses
in strength, flexibility and elasticity. Wrinkles and fine lines appear on the face, especially at
the corner of the lips, the corner of the eyes and on the forehead. The face can present acne
scars. The micropuncture technique (micro-needling), the Dermapen strengthens and
rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the formation of collagen, natural protein that structures
and tenses, whose production diminishes with age. The professional Dermapen sessions
favor the cellular renewal to obtain a rejuvenated, healthier and more beautiful skin.
Soft anti-aging method, done without surgery, the Dermapen is efficient in preventing or correcting
wrinkles that are not too strong. For deeper wrinkes, other techniques can be more appropriate such
as peelings, acid hyaluronic or botox injections, or a lifting. Talk to our experts to choose the proper
treatment most adapted for you. Ideal to retrieve density, clarity and tonus for the skin of the face,
the treatment through Dermapen is done in several sessions at the clinic.
Using Dermapen clearly improves the quality of the skin (texture, flexibility, brightness). This
process can particularly solve:
– From the first signs of cutaneous aging: softens the wrinkles and fine lines, the pigmentation,
fights the loosening and filatation of the pores.
– Acne scars: stimulated, the fibroblasts replace little by little the cicatricial tissues
– Stretch marks: the micro-canals created by the Dermapen allow the PRP to penetrate and
notably reduce the stretch marks.
In practice, the Dermapen lies on the principle of icropuncture. This technique consists in realizing
under-cutaneous microinjections using an electric pen equipped with different micro-needles. The
Dermapen has a single-use sterile head that contains 12 to 36 micro needles. Depending on the head
chosen and the depth of desired action (from 0.25 to 3mm), the treatment will be painless or slightly
uncomfortable, and in this case, applying an anesthetizing cream is possible.
The injections made will contribute in stimulating the fibroblast cells, responsible for the production
of collagen and elastin fibers, the two proteins giving the skin its strength, its elasticity and its
The benefits of Dermapen sessions can be quickly appreciated. The new wrinkles are faded; the face
visibly appears younger. The months following the session, the structure of the skin continues to
improve. It is also efficient to use micro needling against acne, to erase the scars. The Dermapen is
also suggested in the treatment of stretch marks.
The skin treatment through Dermapen is done without surgery and without aneasthesia –
even locan. Indeed, this treatment regenerating the skin is painless or can provoke a slight
discomfort that an anesthetizing cream can clear. During the session, the patient is
comfortably laying down. The doctor, then, practices the Dermapen application on the
different zones treated. After the session, the face is not red (as opposed to laser or peeling).
Socialization is not prevented, the patient can return to his/her normal routine.
Depending on the age of the patient, imperfections to correct and skin characteristics, several
sessions can be scheduled. The doctor defines the treatment protocol most adapted for you to
obtain the desired results.
