Dermapen is a micro-needling method that activates the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production with minimal epidermal damage. With the needles that enter the skin at an angle of 90 degrees, it deliberately causes damage and allows the skin to renew itself because of the collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Due to the needles entering and exiting at an angle of 90 degrees, less damage to the epidermis is achieved compared to other methods. It is inspired by proven acupuncture practiced all over the world. Dermapen is a low cost treatment method where the treatment efficiency is high.
