Dermapen Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling therapy is a treatment in which tiny needles puncture the surface of your skin, stimulating your body’s natural production of elastin and collagen, to repair the “damaged” skin.

Your skin heals itself by filling in the tiny puncture wounds with the new collagen, making your skin firmer and more youthful. Microneedling can also help even out your skin tone and make your skin appear refreshed and rejuvenated.

What conditions can microneedling treat?

This minimally invasive technique is ideal for every skin color and type, to improve a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Oversized pores
  • Areas of discoloration or darker pigmentation
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Loose skin
  • Skin tone

Dr. Santa-Cruz and the medical spa team rely on the award-winning Dermapen to offer men and women the highest standard of microneedling treatments.

How does Dermapen work?

Dermapen is a small device about the size of a large pen, that contains 12 tiny needles. As the Dermapen gently glides over your skin, the needles create surface punctures. The Dermapen needles automatically move rapidly back and forth and rotate slightly, opening up your pores as they go.

Essentially, a Dermapen treatment tricks your skin into thinking it needs to repair itself, so it promotes healing, tightening, and rejuvenation.

How many microneedling treatments will I need?

Everyone’s skin is different, so Dr. Santa-Cruz and the team carefully examine your skin and talk to you about the issues you want to improve. They recommend an optimal number of Dermapen treatments for your specific skin concerns. Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes, and most men and women need 4-8 microneedling treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Dermapen microneedling therapy is a highly effective way to rejuvenate aging skin with minimal downtime, and it’s ideal for those who want to avoid expensive surgeries and lengthy recovery periods. With Dermapen, your skin may be red or dry immediately following a treatment, but these issues typically resolve within a week.
