DermaPen also known as Collagen Induction therapy is a safe and effective procedure. Thousands of microscopic channels are produced in the dermis of the skin that stimulate the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely. Collagen and Elastin are formed, new cells are generated and the blood supply in the dermis is enhanced.  MED SPA SERVICES DermaPen Brightening

Using an advanced lightening agent formula with DermaPen this treatment can treat hyper-pigmentation by evening skin tone, and acts to reduce skin discoloration as well as to diminish age spots and brown spots.  
DermaPen Scalp/Hair Solution

The DermaPen device uses micro-needles to penetrate the top layers of the scalp without causing damage. This penetration allows a much higher absorption of topical scalp treatment products commonly used to treat hair loss and re-grow hair. The pre-treatment has been shown to increase absorption of topical hair loss treatment products 5 times more.
Recent research also reports that Collagen Induction Therapy may also stimulate scalp healing and hair growth by itself as it can stimulate the scalp’s healing response, increase blood flow circulation, break-up excess sebum and may be combined with other procedures like Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). 

DermaPen Scar Solution

Dr. Wang sees DermaPen as an ideal scar revision tool. This treatment penetrates into the dermal or deeper layers of your skin- where acne scars lie. These scars are then fragmented, break down, and the process of scar remodeling occurs. The micro-injury caused by DermaPen needling encourages your collagen and scars to remodel. Scar remodeling is gradual, and can take up to 3 to 4 months for maximal affect.

DermaPen Body Treatment

For a long time, the best way to deal with stretch marks was prevention. Thanks to advances in medical technology, stretch marks can be safely and effectively removed, without the need for surgery. Here at Peaches and Cream® Med Spa Dr.Wang uses the revolutionary DermaPen to make your skin smooth and unblemished again.
How does the DermaPen work?

DermaPen excels when used as a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. As the Dermapen glides over your skin, it creates micro-point punctures in the skin, the majority of which are simply pushing your pores open temporarily. This is perceived by the body as damage, which stimulates the release of growth factors that trigger the production of collagen and elastin. Your skin reacts to any injury by initiating the healing process. You encourage your skin to continue healing through this micro-needling process. 

Your skin normally assumes that scars, stretch marks and wrinkles are repaired, but with the DermaPen micro-needling treatments, the skin is tricked into repairing itself. The process of skin remodeling can go on for months after each DermaPen treatment. 

Results can be seen within a week or even a few days. The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs our skin dissolves old damaged tissue and replaces it with new. DermaPen allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. DermaPen’s expertise is in optimizing this process to improve results and minimize complications and discomfort.

How is the treatment administered?
DermaPen procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile DermaPen needle head. 

What is the skins appearance after the treatment?  

After the procedure your skin will be red and flushed in appearance in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments and within the next 24 hours the skin will be completely healed. After 3 days there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place. 

How quickly are results visible?

Visible results of skin rejuvenation are generally seen after just 6-8 weeks following procedure and improve further over time.

Is the DermaPen safe?

DermaPen micro-needling does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely to occur. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal downtime (circa 24hrs), rapid healing and requires simple after-care.

What are the indications for having a DermaPen treatment?

DermaPen treatments are especially effective for aging concerns such as wrinkles, lines, folds and crows feet. General lack of skin radiance, skin firmness and compactness are also an indication for skin needling treatments and visibleimprovements can be seen.

What are the contraindications of skin needling treatments?

Contraindications and precautions include; keloid or raised scarring; history of eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; history of Herpes Simplex infections; history of diabetes; presence of raised moles, warts or any
raised lesions on targeted area. Absolute contraindications include; scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases or cardiac abnormalities; Rosacea and blood clotting problems; active bacterial or fungal infection; immuno-suppression; scars less than 6
months old; and facial fillers in the past 6 months. 

Are there any side effects or risks associated with skin needling? 

Side effects experienced with the DermaPen will usually subside within 48 hours. They include red or pinkish skin, stinging, itching, tightness of the treated area. To help with this, be sure to adhere to your aesthetician’s aftercare instructions following a DermaPen treatment. This will help to reduce redness, swelling, itching and discomfort and also enhance results. 

How does Dermapen treat wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars?

Skin needling is based on the skin’s ability to heal itself after an injury. Right after the skin encounters any physical damage, it immediately eliminates the damaged tissue to replace it with new, healthy skin. Dermapen induces small, controlled areas of damage to trigger the production of new collagen without the risks of scarring resulting in
smoother and firmer skin.

How long until I see results from DermaPen?
Each patient’s healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area. Even a light treatment can enhance the appearance of skin texture and brighten your complexion.

What does a DermaPen treatment feel like? 

Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those undergoing treatment with the full 2.5mm, as used in scar remodeling, are offered numbing creams as an option for treatment.

How many DermaPen treatments will I need?

Each person’s skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need more than one session. The number of treatment sessions required will be determined during consultation with your highly skilled and certified dermapen technician
