Not In Love With Your Scars? Try Dermapen!

By July 19, 2013No Comments

I think most people would agree that scars on your face, or anywhere on your body, are not really the greatest look.

While Harry Potter’s scar was part of what he was known for, we can’t all have awesome lightning bolt scars.

The rest of us muggles have to worry about things like acne scarring. That is definitely NOT a feature I want to be known for.

Any type of scarring, whether it be from an accident, acne, or stretch marks, is a hard problem to treat. Being a medical spa in Utah County, we have seen that not many creams, cleansers, serums, or treatments are really strong enough to do the trick.

If you are suffering from acne scarring, Dermapen might be the solution you have been looking for!

Dermapen is an amazing micro-needling treatment that works extremely well to diminish scars, especially those cause by acne. In addition to treating scars, Dermapen treatments are a great solution for wrinkles, stretch marks, collagen production and all over tone of the skin.

The actual Derma-pen, uses a small, pen-like system that has 13 tiny needles on the tip. It causes small micro injuries into the epidermis and dermis, breaking up scar tissue and causing the skin to go into hyper healing mode.

You’re probably thinking, “There’s no way I’m letting needles come that close to my face!”

Don’t worry, I’ve been there! And I can tell you from personal experience, it’s not as bad as it sounds.

I had my first Dermapen treatment about 5 months ago. I was terrified, and not too thrilled with the idea of having 13 needles poking my face.

But I was well taken care of.

Megan, my esthetician at Spa Trouve, made sure I put on a topical numbing cream an hour before treatment, which really helped with the pain. She made me feel comfortable and told me what to expect before starting the treatment.

I was pleasantly surprised. Besides a few uncomfortable spots on my forehead and nose, it was totally tolerable. Plus, besides a little redness, my skin was almost back to normal the next day. I would definitely recommend this treatment for anyone who has issues with acne scars, skin tone, stretch marks, or wrinkles. The results are amazing!

One of the great things about the Dermapen is that you can actually change the how deep the needles will penetrate into the skin. Depending on your skin and what you are trying to treat, the Master Esthetician doing the treatment can adjust the depth according to your needs.

Along with treating acne scars, a big reason to try a Dermapen is to boost your collagen production. As we age, the production of our collagen and elastin in our skin cells naturally dimishes, which causes saggy skin, fine lines and wrinkles. The Dermapen treatment kicks the skin into repairing mode, causing it to produce more collagen, giving more elasticity and volume. To see the best results from a Dermapen treatment, you will want to get a series of 4-6 treatments, once every 6 weeks.

So not only does Dermpen help with scarring, It’s a treatment that will actually keep your skin looking young!
