Write Your Skin’s Story: The Art of Dermapen
- Posted on: Sep 15 2017
Your skin is like a map of your life; it shows your age, where you’ve been, how much sun you’ve seen, and it can even show what kind of work you’ve done. Although it’s beautiful to constantly have this map so accessible, sunspots, scars, and fine lines and wrinkles can make you feel more self-conscious than anything. Luckily, Dr. Benjamin Dunkley offers patients a wide variety of treatments to help your skin tell the story that you want it to. As one of those treatments, the DermaPen is especially effective at doing this. So, what is the DermaPen and what are its unique benefits? Read on to learn more.
What is DermaPen?
Dermapen is a device that makes hundreds of tiny little puncture wounds all across your face which triggers your skin’s natural healing instincts. As your skin is healing itself from these wounds, it produces more collagen which can help to treat fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scarring, and even get rid of sunspots in the process. Depending on your skin and the results you want, you and Dr. Dunkley will create a treatment plan.
What Are the Benefits?
DermaPen is similar to other procedures that Benjamin Dunkley offers such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and IPL, but it’s more affordable. Additionally, because the procedure itself is fairly non-invasive, the recovery process is straightforward and easy. And because you are targeting the top few layers of the dermis, you should see results after just one or two treatment sessions.
Even though your skin is like a map, you can write the rest of your future by having the skin you’ve always wanted. Luckily, with treatments like DermaPen, we can encourage the growth and production of the healthier skin.
