The DermaPen is made up of two parts:
- A disposable medical grade stainless steel needle tip that has twelve microscopic needles
- An electric hand piece.
The needle cartridge clicks into the handpiece and oscillates 110 revolutions per second and makes tiny punctures of the skin surface. The depth can have a range from 0.2mm to 2mm so treatment can be tailored to each person. To treat stretch marks the DermaPen can be set to penetrate 2mm deep.
When the needles penetrate the skin this causes minor trauma, initiating an immune response, leading to the creation of new and healthy collagen. A cocktail of rich and nourishing nutrients are also introduced into the deep layer of the skin through the punctures. DermaPen does not cause dermal tearing. Find out more.
