Dermapen 4 logo

Dermapen 4 can effectively treat acne scars and aging skin on the neck and décolleté. But that’s not where the benefits end! Microneedling can address several other complexion concerns, including:

How Dermapen 4 Microneedling Works

The handheld Dermapen device features 12 microneedles that “stamp” the skin. The depth is carefully calibrated to activate the body’s regenerative healing response without triggering scar tissue formation. The treatment is a form of collagen induction therapy, which stimulates new collagen production for healthy, resilient skin from the inside out. 

Thanks to its advanced technologies, Dermapen 4 is the only digitalized microneedling device that prevents the needles from dragging across the skin. As a result, patients enjoy a safer and more comfortable treatment. 

Patient receiving a microneedling treatment

A Dermapen 4 treatment involves the following stages: 

  1. The microneedles create controlled damage to the skin, causing the patient’s immune system to increase blood flow to the area and begin making new tissue to support the wounds.
  2. Collagen production begins to assist in the healing process.
  3. New, collagen- and elastin-rich dermal tissues replace the micro-wounds, improving the skin’s texture, appearance, and elasticity. 

DermaPen 4 Benefits

Patients get a smoother complexion and brighter, clearer skin. They may even notice some skin tightening effects after their treatment. Dermapen 4 even has dedicated treatment settings to address different types of scar tissue.

Unlike some energy-based microneedling devices or laser treatments, we can safely use Dermapen 4 on all six Fitzpatrick skin types without causing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or skin lightening in darker skin tones.

Patients seeking a more comprehensive transformation of their skin can combine microneedling with other treatments, including HydraFacial or eMatrix™ sublative laser skin resurfacing. During your consultation, we will work with you to determine the optimal treatment protocol to achieve your desired results.

Your Microneedling Session

Your Dermapen 4 microneedling session begins with a gentle cleansing to remove sunscreen, makeup, or surface oils. The Dp Dermaceuticals™ Tri-Phase Cleanser progresses from a balm to a gel and, finally, to a milk to hydrate, purify, and nourish the skin.

We then apply a personalized serum that serves multiple valuable functions:

  • Protects against friction and abrasion
  • Allows the device to glide smoothly over the skin
  • Ensures that active ingredients enter the skin through the micro-channels

We administer the Dermapen 4 device to the skin at varying needle depths. Although the procedure will create thousands of micro-punctures over a 30-minute session, it is well-tolerated by patients. Most patients feel pressure, warmth, and a mild scratching sensation but rarely pain.

Dermapen 4 Microneedling Results

Your skin may be red, warm, and sensitive (similar to a mild to moderate sunburn) for 2 to 3 days after treatment. As your skin heals and the tissue remodels itself, you will see improvements in your skin’s quality and texture. Most results are visible within 2 weeks, though full results can take up to 2 months to develop as the skin regenerates itself.
