The Lowdown on Dermapen Mesotherapy

Like coffee and jazz or sand and the sea, Dermapen and mesotherapy are a match made in heaven. Together, they create a facial treatment that remedies all sorts of skin woes.

From wrinkles to acne scars, visible pores to hair loss, dermapen mesotherapy is the simple solution.

Dermapen: Creating Fresh New Skin

Dermapen is a micro-needling technology that stimulates the skin to produce more collagen, the protein that makes our skin supple. It should not be mistaken for Dermarollers an earlier (cruder) needling device that penetrates the skin at an angle, resulting in the higher risk of the skin tearing.

Dermapen has microneedles that penetrate the skin a hundred times per second, precisely and accurately reaching the dermis. The body’s natural response to this is to heal the micro-injuries, creating new skin cells and producing more collagen. The result: noticeable skin tightening and reduction of acne scars and wrinkles.

Mesotherapy: The Skin’s Vitamin Cocktail

Mesotherapy is a medical process that introduces a combination of vitamins, homoeopathic agents and natural extracts deep into the skin with an injection. The therapy tightens sagging skin, reduces cellulite’s appearance and targets fat deposits. Those who undergo this treatment find their skin plump and rejuvenated.

These treatments may seem frightening, but they are completely safe and used around the world, sought by celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Jenifer Aniston.

Are these treatments painful?

Not as much as you think. The pen only creates micro-injuries, and a local anaesthetic is applied to the face before the needles are introduced into the skin. Most patients state that they do not feel pain at all while some were bothered by the pen’s pulsating feeling but found the treatment painless as well. Mild discomfort, however, can be felt by those who require sessions with deeper penetration.

Does it take long to heal from these treatments?

The freckly sunburnt look subsides towards the end of the day. The following day, you will start feeling the firming effect. After 48 hours, the redness will be gone, and you will start seeing the reward for your bravery.

A Cutting-edge Fusion of Skin Technologies

As one treatment, dermapen with mesotherapy dramatically improves the skin’s texture and appearance. The two-in-one treatment is usually performed on the face, but it can also be used for the hands, décolletage, stomach and thighs. Aside from the ones mentioned above, concerns that can be addressed with this great duo include:

  • fine lines
  • sun damage
  • dehydrated skin
  • hyperpigmentation (excess of melanin makes dark patches of skin)
  • sagging skin
  • stretch marks
  • cellulite
