The DermaSpaPen uses 12 surgical-grade stainless steel needles to create thousands of micro-channels in the treated skin. This fractionated approach allows for two main benefits:
Temporary (10-20 minutes) micro-channels allow for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals during and post-procedure, allowing for optimal delivery
Fractionated injuries to the dermal tissues without ablation or introduction of thermal energy allows for quick, safe, and effective percutaneous collagen induction therapy, even in clients with darker skin types
These benefits allow for the treatment of many skin conditions which may require either collagen remodeling (i.e., photo-aging, acne scarring, stretch-marks), optimization of topical drug delivery (i.e., acne, melasma) or both.
Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT, or also referred to as microneedling) is the procedure by which the body's natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix (such as collagen or elastin) in the skin. The DermaSpaPen by SlimSpa creates a fractionated series of thousands of microchannels, which allow for leakage of blood, serum and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These "injuries" are enough to initiate the "wound healing cascade" which is composed of three basic phases:
Phase One: Inflammation
In this stage the platelets that are activated by the piercing of the dermal tissue release cytokines and growth factors which act as signals for the body's immune system to send in cells such as neutrophils and macrophages to disinfect the wounds, clear the debris, increase the blood supply (in a process called angiogenesis) and begin the creation of fresh, new cellular and extracellular materials (the granulation process)
Phase Two: Proliferation
In this stage, the fibroblasts (cells that make up much of the dermis and create the extracellular matrix) keratinocytes and epidermal cells continue to divide to populate the areas of damage and secrete growth factors and extracellular matrix, such as elastin and collagen III.
Phase Three: Remodeling
In this stage, the wound has now been replaced with new dermal tissues and the newly formed vasculature is now matured. The collagen III in the newly formed tissue is now replaced with the stronger collagen I and the tissue contracts to cause a "shrink-wrap" effect of the skin.
The DermaSpaPen Advantage Is:
offering results to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and skin texture
a minimally invasive, non-ablative treatment
a skin rejuvenating treatment with a superior safety profile
an in-office procedure that is quick and simple
DermaSpa PEN SAFETY INFORMATION
DermaSpaPen improves and regenerates damaged or aging skin by utilizing the natural approach to skin therapy. Our bodies have a natural repair and healing process that reacts to injury. By initiating this response, DermaSpaPen by SlimSpa harnesses the skin rejuvenation process in the safest, most effective way.
A Safe and Superior Treatment
Versatile Enough for All Skin Types
DermaSpaPen promotes natural collagen reproduction and scar-less healing similar to fractional laser treatments, laser resurfacing, and IPLs. Unlike these energy-based procedures that use chromophones or heat, DermaSpaPen uses sterile, disposable needle cartridges that deliver multi-speed and adjustable depths to allow for increased effectiveness for your unique skin needs. This allows DermaSpaPen by SlimSpa to be used for a wider range of client types, including clients with darker skin types.
