Dermapen (microneedling) is a treatment used to restore and increase the production of collagen and consists in a physical-mechanical stimulation through a device composed of a tip with 10-20 needles, which causes micro-perforation (adjustable between 0.5 to 2.5 mm) of the skin (epidermis and superficial and deep dermis).
These micropunctions generate micro lesions, which stimulate the skin’s self-repair mechanisms, activating regenerative processes so that collagen production is increased. They also favor the penetration of active principles (90%) through these microchannels generated by the punctures.
- Improving the appearance of the skin.

- It can be applied to the face, neck.
- It can be done at any time of the year.

The results are not seen instantly, but days after having performed the procedure. This is due to the collagen production cycle, which requires time.
