Micro-needling is a simple procedure using a hand-held device to stimulate fibroblasts in your own dermis to create collagen and elastin by using ultra-fine ‘microneedles’. With increased collagen and elastin, your skin will have more volume and resilience improving skin complexion and tone for a smoother overall appearance. This is why micro-needling is also called “Collagen Induction Therapy.”
There are three major competitors in microneedling. DSI chose to partner with Dermapen as it was the only corded device and was the most studied in medical journals. Furthermore, the adjustable depth hand piece easily allows changing depths to fully customize the results to each patient and at each site treated. The other competitors have a‘wireless’ rechargeable device that sounds great for mobility but there has been documented decreased power in the rotations per minute after a few uses which could impact the treatment parameters and reliability. With a wired power supply, there are always consistent, repeatable, and reliable results.
