The micro-injuries from microneedling, trigger a natural process of repair, increasing the production of collagen and elastin and visibly improving a wide range of skin concerns.
Aging & Collagen
Around your 30s, your natural collagen production begins to decline. This is when you might first start to notice wrinkles. For women, there’s often a marked drop around menopause, related to the decline in estrogen. Smoking, poor diet and sun exposure all contribute to free radical damage which also attacks collagen. This decline in collagen is responsible for the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Types of Collagen
While we often talk about “collagen” as a singular thing, there are many different collagen types. Our bodies are primarily made up of type 1, type 2 and type 3. Collagen 1 is the strongest and gives skin its stretch and elasticity.
Collagen & Wound Healing
Did you know the body’s natural healing process relies on collagen? After about 3 days, the wounded area enters something called the proliferation phase. This is where collagen is deposited at the site to increase the strength of the wound. Initially, collagen type 3 is deposited, but after 6-8 weeks, this transforms into the stronger type 1. And it’s this completely natural and predictable process that’s behind the success of Dermapen Treatments
Collagen Induction Therapy & Dermapen
Dermapen Treatments are a type of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). They work by creating thousands of controlled wounds in the skin to naturally trigger the body’s collagen production. The key word here is “controlled”. The needles enter the skin cleanly at a 90-degree angle and without heat—making it safe and predictable for all Fitzpatrick skin types and ethnicities.
Long-lasting Collagen Benefits
The final phase of the wound healing response maturation is the continual remodeling and development of collagen. This can continue up to 2 years after a single Dermapen procedure. It’s a procedure that promotes better skin quality, functionality, regeneration, and integrity. You don’t need to have painful collagen injections. Dermapen Treatments work with your body to naturally boost collagen levels for younger-looking skin.
