The body’s ability to heal itself is at the heart of this amazing process, microneedling provides an unparalleled response via the fractional delivery of microneedles creating micro-injuries to the epidermis and dermis. This is “how micro-needling works” by creating these micro-injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to repair the skin through the normal physiology of skin. Micro-needling results will vary based on the clients age, number of treatments and how well the skin is taken care of before and after each Dermapen treatment.

Your skin will return to its normal appearance within 12 hours -2 days depending on your skins sensitivity and how the skin is cared for post treatment. Results, are not instant, they gradually become apparent because natural collagen growth happens over weeks and months.
Natural collagen induction takes time, depending on the skin areas treated and what you’re skin goals are, for optimal results three and six micro-needling treatments are required.
