Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy

Stimulate Collagen, Tighten Skin with DermaPen

DermaPen® is the world’s most advanced fractional micro-needling device that provides patients with a more effective, minimally invasive skin treatment option that stimulates collagen and elastin as well as promotes greater product absorption to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It is also highly effective in softening the appearance of acne scars.

Sharon J. Littzi, M.D. is proud to offer treatments using this device.

This alternative laser resurfacing is safe for all skin types and gets fast,visible results for acne scarring and fine lines.

What are the benefits of DermaPen?

DermaPen is a unique and innovative new technique to enhance the appearance of your skin without the need for invasive surgery. It can be used to:

  • Tighten and rejuvenate skin
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve keloid, surgical and acne scars
  • Stimulate the production of collagen

How does DermaPen® work?

Using multiple needles to vertically penetrate the surface layers of skin, treatment with DermaPen® allows the body to begin the wound-healing process which breaks up older collagen chains to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin within the skin. Once the DermaPen® treatment is complete, Sharon J. Littzi, M.D. can apply active ingredients to manage any ongoing skin condition such as acne.

What can I expect after my treatment?

Each patient's healing time varies, though most start to see results in one day to a week after treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may notice a red appearance in the treatment area and in rare cases minor pin-point bleeding depending on the depth of the needle penetration

What does a DermaPen® treatment feel like?

Depending on the depth of treatment decided by Sharon J. Littzi, M.D., numbing creams can be used to increase patient comfort. The DermaPen®'s can be adjusted to a length of .5mm to 2.5mm based on your skin condition. Those undergoing treatments with a shorter needle will only feel a tickling sensation, while those undergoing treatment with the full 2.5mm are offered numbing creams as an option for treatment.

How many DermaPen® treatments will I need?

Each person's skin conditions are different and require different levels of treatment. Those with mild wrinkles and fine lines may see improvement after just one treatment while more advanced skin conditions like acne scarring may need more than one session. The number of treatment sessions required will be determined during a consultation with our cosmetic doctor.

Below is just a guide:

* Precision:The precision of the DermaPen® minimizes the effect of the treatment on the tissues surrounding the treatment area much more so than the original system.

* Adjustable speed & length: DermaPen®’s sterile, disposable needle tips are adjustable to cater to different areas of the face that require different penetration levels for the best results.

* No down time: Traditionally skin needling has been performed with a dermaroller. While effective in it’s old form, the needles would penetrate the skin at an angle causing more side effects and therefore greater recovery time.

* Less skin damage: The DermaPen® penetrates the skin from up to 100 times per second with an adjustable speed, and at a depth between 0.25mm- 2.5mm, depending on the area being treated. The needles in the DermaPen® penetrate the skin vertically, minimizing skin damage, pain and recovery time.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses fine needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled skin injury. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. As a result, you get an improvement in skin texture, firmness as well as a reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks.

How does Microneedling work?

The concept of Microneedling is based on the skin's ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury our skin dissolves old damaged tissue and replaces it with new. Microneedling is a controlled way of triggering collagen synthesis by creating micro "injuries" in the skin. This does not pose a risk of permanent scarring. The result is a younger looking, smoother skin.
