Dermafix Microneedling pens use sterile needles to create temporary microchannels in the surface of the skin using a hand held device to create minute traumas on the skin’s surface which allows powerful rejuvenation products to penetrate the skin, the skin reacts defensively by naturally releasing healing collagen and elastin to repair itself.
Microneedling uses a vertical needling system which creates far less epidermal trauma to the skin than a dermaroller as it does not bend, break or tear the skin resulting in minimised pain and discomfort and a much quicker recovery time.
The Dermafix Microneedling pen can create over half a million microchannels during a 10 minute treatment, all dermafix skin treatments are personalised to each clients individual concerns, the length of the needle is adjustable as is the speed of the needle, allowing the treatment to be adapted accordingly to the type of skin being treated and the treatment area.
