Mesopen is the newest micro-needling device available and uses the same principle as the Dermapen, but penetrates deeper and more evenly into the skin. The device creates microscopic holes, which stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin two substances vital for creating new skin.
For whom is the treatment designed?
This procedure can reduce your acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigmented lesions and other skin imperfections and rejuvenate your skin texture. The Mesopen® can also be used to apply topical creams, gels and lotions more effectively.
What does the procedure look like?
During this procedure, 12 micro-needles are used to create controlled micro-inclusions to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin remodeling. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis, with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Mesopen also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
What is the downtime?
After the treatment you may notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
How many treatments will you need?
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart . For patients with deep wrinkles, stretch marks, advanced photo-aging, or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
