Microneedling is also referred to as Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy and Micro-Needle Therapy.: –
Micro-Needling is the ultimate non-surgical and non-ablative treatment. As the very fine microneedles puncture the skin, they trigger the bodys healing response. This “minor trauma” that is caused in the lower leverls of the dermis stimulates the body to start naturally producing protiens and collagen. Microneedling leads to increased production of Elastin, Collagen and improved circulation in the area. Through the process of neovascularization and neocollagenesis, there is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Dr Dermic Pen:
The Dr Dermic pen is the most professional & hygienic microneedling device on the market. It has an 11 pin head with adjustable depths and speeds. The high speed of these needles considerably reduces treatment time; this decreases patient discomfort and speeds recovery. The microneedle cartridges are single use, which eliminate the risk of infection, and cost less than traditional rollers.
Dr Dermic Pen V’s Traditional Dermal Rollers:
Due to the shape of traditional microneedling rollers the needles will puncture the skin at an angle, causing scratches to the epidermis. This is particularly prominent with needle depths 1mm and longer. This damage to the epidermis leaves customers with more bleeding and longer downtime. There is also a much greater risk of bruising and infection with the Dermal Rollers.
The Dr Dermic Pen needles work perpendicular to the skin, so there is no damage to the epidermis, and the needles are so fine that bleeding is at a minimum. The Dr Dermic Pen requires no pressure on the skin which means that bruising rarely occurs, and downtime is reduced dramatically.
The adjustable depth of the Dr Dermic Pen and the small size and shape of the Microneedle Cartridge means that you are getting a constant, accurate and full coverage treatment. In comparrison the dermal roller has a fixed needle depth and it’s shape makes it difficult to get in around the contours of the face e.g. nose, eyes and top lip.
The Dr Dermic allows the opening of 80% more micro-channels than traditional rollers. This enables a greater stimulation of collagen and elastin production and increases the absorbtion of applied solutions. It causes more trauma to the lower layers of the skin and less damage to the epidermis, which makes it a far more effective treatment than traditional dermal rollers.

Dr Dermic Pen Microneedling V’s Laser Treatments:
Laser treatments cannot be done on skin of colour, while skin is tanned, while wearing false tan or if the skin is going to be exposed to the sun (hypersensitivity to the sun) because it burns the outer layer of the skin. This means that the epidermus is thinned, making it far more suseptible to lines and wrinkles, particularly in more aged skin.
Microneedling is safe on all skin types and does not cause hypersensitivity to the sun. The Dr Dermic Pen is a safe facial rejuvenation treatment to do during the summer months. A physical sun block is alway advised, all year round!
The Dr Dermic Pen only causes minor trauma the the epidermus, with the vertical insertion of the fine needles, and therefore leads to thickening of the epidermus. This makes the skin less likely to wrinkle so easily.
The healing time after microneedling is also a lot shorter, again because the epidermus is still intact.
