Clinique Elixir offers both the Dermapen® and Dermapen 4® treatment. The Dermapen 4® is an extension of the current Dermapen and offers the most ultimate and advanced microneedling system.
Microneedling using the Dermapen is a technique in which small channels are made in the skin by sterile vibrating needles. In response to the small channels, a natural wound healing process is started in the skin. As a result, the skin will recover, releasing various growth factors, which ensure more production of collagen and elastin in the skin. During this healing process, the skin will look more resilient, smoother, smoother and fresher.
In addition to the natural skin reaction, serums are used that are adjusted to the indication of your skin.
The Dermapen treatment can be repeated with a treatment frequency of 2-4 weeks depending on the skin condition and indication. By treating in a cure (3-5 treatments), deeper problems in the skin can be tackled, such as scars and pigmentation. The number of treatments required varies per person and indication.
Are combination treatments possible? You can combine the treatment with mesotherapy Skinboosters to optimize the result. You could also alternate a cure with peelings.
