As we get older our collagen production decreases, causing our skin to lose its structure, and our plump, youthful complexion begins to fade. We start to show signs of ageing, especially in our faces, with the appearance of lax skin, wrinkles and fine lines appearing. Pollution, sun damage and lifestyle habits also take their toll on our skin, accelerating this skin ageing process even further.
Signs of ageing skin
Our skin shows signs of ageing in different ways, but the most common areas are usually:
- Crow’s feet and laughter lines around our eyes
- Nasolabial folds and “lipstick lines” around the mouth
- Expression and frown lines on the forehead
- Sagging skin and wrinkles around the neck and décolletage
- Uneven skin tone including a ‘crepe’ texture
- Pigmentation from sun damage
How can Dermapen microneedling help make skin look younger?
Whilst we can try temporary injectables, Dermapen treatments are the safe and long-term alternative to fighting the ageing process. What’s more, Dermapen treatments naturally work from within. The natural wound-healing responses created by microneedling treatments will kick start the production of fresh, new collagen and elastin production in the skin, for transformative changes in the skin that last.
How does a Dermapen microneeding treatment actually work?
Microneedling works by gliding a pen-like device over the skin, which delivers microscopic punctures (only a few millimetres deep) using very tiny needles. You won’t really feel this, as they’re moving incredibly fast in a vertical stamping motion. The treatment stimulates the natural healing process in the skin, resulting in fresh, new collagen and elastin, and a rejuvenated and more youthful complexion. To enhance this process, active solutions containing collagen, vitamins, antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients are applied and penetrate the deeper layers of the skin through these tiny channels to maximise your skin results.
How many Dermapen treatments do I need for fine lines and wrinkles?
Dermapen treatments can commence on the onset or before fine lines take hold. Depending on the depth of wrinkles, for best results your therapist will likely recommend around four sessions, six weeks apart. To drive superior skin results it’s also recommended you use the protocol Dp Dermaceuticals active skincare products. This is the world’s first skincare range exclusively designed for safe infusion into the skin during skin needling procedures, and contains powerful ingredients to deliver skin improvement when it comes to lines, wrinkles and sagging skin.
Which Dp Dermaceuticals products are recommended for use in improving signs of ageing?
Your therapist will work with your skin goals to determine the best products for you. Protocol products for treating lines and wrinkles include Hyla Active (for hydration and plumping the skin), Vitamin Rich Repair (for skin strengthening with peptides and antioxidants) and Retinal Active (with powerful Vitamin A for rejuvenation). Combining home care product use with your Dermapen treatments will work to ensure you’re achieving optimum skin results for younger looking skin.
