ABOUT MY FACE / DERMAPEN

ABOUT MY FACE / DERMAPEN

ASALAAM-WA-ALAIKUM , 

Previously i have mentioned about my breakout on my face as well as scaring and holes from previous acne . for the longest time ever i was looking to treat it and i am that kind of person that wants things done naturally .

So i came across something called the dermaroller about a year and started doing research regarding this , then i further came across the Dermapen and i realized that this is the newer version to the dermaroller . after months and ends of research i finally decided to start treatment so i contacted my nearest Aesthetic and booked myself and appointment .

What is a DERMAPEN :

The Dermapen is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. The Dermapen can visibly improve the appearance of :

  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • surgical, acne and trauma scars
  • stretch marks
  • pigmentation

My consult :

My first treatment started off by checking my skin , how deep the holes are and what my breakout are caused by .

First Treatment :

the first thing is making sure your face is clean the second step is the numbing process , the application of the numbing cream which stays on for approximately 15 to 20 minutes .

The actually treatment then starts the dermapen comes with micro needles that needs to be changed at every treatment . the micro needling process is about 10 to 15 minutes .

After the Needling :

my skin was totally red as well as swollen .

you do get a small burning sensation , nothing that painful but it does feel weird when you wash your face .

Healing :

the healing process isn’t a long 1 .

Day 1 : skin was still red and swollen , no pain

Day 2 : skin back to normal with some shedding or peeling of skin

Day 3 : back to normal

I have been for 5 treatments already but i haven’t seen a major change in my skin . there has been a change in the sense that the pore are gone my skin looks and feels softer as well as i find the holes are getting less visible . But i still have pimples shooting out every now and then which i thought would stop .

I see a difference in coverage when i apply foundation .

I would suggest if you have very old holes and scaring then maybe you should incorporate laser faxel as well .

If you waiting to see results straight away this treatment isn’t for you , you will only see a small change each month because this is a natural process , remember ¬†what the dermapen is doing is its rupturing your skin for the collagen to activate and start repairing your skin ¬†by itself .
