How does it work?

This helps to create multiple micro injuries on the surface of the skin. These micro-injuries activate the body’s healing cascade, with stimulation of various growth factors, stem cells, elastin fibers which helps in the formation of new collagen beneath the skin. PRP can also be infused into the skin during the procedure by different microchannels, to get better results. The depth of the dermapen needles can be adjusted in order to treat different skin problems at the different level of the skin.
