What Is Needling RF Dermapen?

The Dermapen treatment offered by Metamorphosis focuses on creating skin abrasions by the needles stimulating your body to send healing agents like elastin and collagen to the treatment area for the desired repair. The treatment targets skin concerns like acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, lost elasticity, and skin structure. The treatment is suitable for both young and mature individuals.

This process is aimed to increase collagen by needle stimulation. The age factor, which brings wrinkles, is easily eliminated using this treatment, making you look young and buoyant. Usually, people choose this treatment for pimple scars (young folks) or anti-ageing.

It can also be used for rejuvenation when used superficially.

During this method, approx. Twenty-five micro needles are inserted in the affected area with a cocktail of solution enriched with different nutrients in a micronized form, facilitating the absorption. The treatment cycle is every 3-6 weeks, and it is advised to get them 3-5 times depending on the skin’s condition. This technique is clubbed with special packs which bring out the glow in one’s skin and facilitate healing. This procedure has minimum reversible side effects. We also apply anaesthetic cream before the procedure so the pain is negligible, and an ointment is given for maximum care and comfort.

In an initial face-to-face consultation with our skin specialist, we will assess your skin and advise on the number of sessions. We will be showing you some before and after photos. The treatment might be postponed later if the skin has had recent breakouts. We then explain to you how to prepare for the procedure. You will be asked to stop any Retin-A or exfoliating products 48 hours before the procedure. You will also be asked to keep a gap for 7 to 10 days if there is any tanning or a history of prolonged sun exposure. If shaving is needed, it can be done immediately before the procedure but not 48 -72 hours post-procedure. The skin may seem dry and tight for the first 1-3 days. THE TREATMENT RECOVERY TIMELINE is explained as follows:

● Day 1: Erythema and red appearance; severity will depend on how aggressively the treatment was performed.

● Day 2: A red or pink hue persists like a moderate sunburn. Swelling may be more noticeable on the second day.

● Day 3: Skin can be pink or normal colour. Swelling subsides. Aftercare will avoid extreme temperatures like hot saunas/hot water for 72 hours. Practising sun protection.

Treatment FAQ’s

How Does the Treatment Work?

The Dermapen needles are designed to penetrate the skin creating hundreds of tiny channels which facilitate the passage and absorption of the applied product into the deeper part of the skin. It also breaks through the fibrous bands that pull down the pimple scars. The growth factors are released, which in turn stimulates new collagen formation.

What Conditions Can Be Treated by Dermapen?

Dermapen treats pimple scars, fine lines, open pores, skin glow, and stretch marks and cause new collagen build-up.

How Much Time Does It Take?

It generally takes half to one hour, depending on the area.

Is It Painful?

A numbing cream is applied 30 minutes before the procedure to minimise the pain and discomfort.

Can It Be Combined With Other Procedures Like Dermal Fillers?

Yes. Dermal fillers can be done immediately in cases of acne scars and within a week for other areas.

Does Needling Therapy Create Channels or Holes in the Skin? Do They Stay Open and Absorb Dirt as Well?

No, the tiny channels quickly close over within a few minutes.

If the Needling Channels Create Holes in My Skin, Can They Cause Open Pores?

No. Open pores are caused due to reduced collagen around the openings of oil glands (sebaceous glands). Dermapen generates collagen and hence is used in the treatment of open pores and doesn’t cause open pores.

What Are the Post-treatment Instructions?

Post instructions:

• Your skin May feel warm and tight. You May also notice some swelling which usually Will subside within 24 hours. • use broad-spectrum sunscreen religiously three times a day.

• For at least three days post-treatment, do not use any aha, BHA, retinol(Vitamin a) Or vitamin c products.

• Avoid direct sunlight for at least 48 hours. If you know you Will get incidental Sun exposure (Driving to and from work, walking from your car to the house etc.), we recommend physical avoidance of the Sun in all treated areas with a protective hat and a full spectrum sunblock of SPF 50.

• Avoid swimming/Gymming/Hot baths/Hot saunas/Hot showers for 24 hours post-procedure.

• It is recommended that you do not apply makeup on the day of your treatment. It is ideal to allow the skin to stabilise and rest overnight. However, makeup can be used if necessary.

• For best results and efficacy, we recommend a series of 6 treatments at 2-4 weeks intervals. You May notice immediate as well as long-term improvements in your skin.
