Many people suffer from skin complaints, whether it’s scaring or ageing, but it can become a huge knock to your confidence. However, you don’t have to live with these issues, because there are ways to solve or reduce their appearance; undoubtedly the most effective way is through skin needling. This procedure really isn’t as scary as it sounds, especially if the new Dermapen 4 is used. If you don’t know much about this procedure, or if it’s something you have been intimidated by, keep reading to find out why it could be a great option for you.

Facial skin needling, otherwise known as micro-needling, is a skin rejuvenation technique that can help reduce the appearance of many skin complaints. This procedure is considered as minimally invasive and is accomplished through fine, sterile needles being injected into the skin. Although the process sounds painful, the needles only prick the layers of the skin, meaning the pain experienced is incredibly minor, however, many clinics will offer numbing cream to make the experience more comfortable for the patient. The aim is to create small punctures and surface bleeding in order to revive the skin and give the appearance of a youthful, healthy complexion.

In order to carry out this procedure, clinics need to have the correct equipment, specifically a Dermapen, which is the device that contains the needles. Although there are several options when it comes to facial needling devices, undoubtedly the best is the new Dermapen 4. The Dermapen 4 for facial skin needling is a complete upgrade on its predecessors, with improved features, alongside completely new functions. Unlike many other devices, the Dermapen 4 has 16 needles, which is an upgrade on the typical 12. Despite this sounding more painful, facial skin needling with the Dermapen 4 is actually a more comfortable treatment for the patient, this is because it glides over the skin resulting in minimal drag. Furthermore, this device creates 1920 holes per second, which is a substantial increase on the Dermapen 3- a 47% increase to be exact; this is roughly 104% more efficient than a counterfeit needling pen.

As well as being more efficient and comfortable, the new Dermapen 4 has a whole range of new features. One unique setting on the Dermapen 4 is the scar treatment setting, which aims to reduce the appearance of scaring on the face and body. Almost any type of scar can be treated by this procedure, including acne scarring, surgical scarring, and burns. The new device also allows for more accurate needle adjustments, meaning it can be altered in 0.1mm increments, making it safe to use on delicate areas of the face, such as the scalp and eyelids. The accuracy of the Dermapen 4 means it is suitable for anyone, even those with sensitive skin. It is recommended that anyone considering facial skin needling ensures the clinic they visit makes use of the Dermapen 4. This will not only make your visit more comfortable but also more effective.
