Fibroblast and Micro trauma
The micro trauma caused by the derma pen stimulates Fibroblasts, existing collagen and elastin in the skin, which are responsible for the development of new, younger looking skin. The resultant effect is tighter, stronger skin.
Though the procedure is relatively painless, the intense heat created by the plasma pen causes dots to appear on the skin, which wears off after a few days. The fibroblasts are stimulated immediately and the change on the surface of the skin is apparent upon completion.
The skin will continue to produce new cells up to eight weeks after the session. The result will be refined fine lines and wrinkles, and an improvement on the overall complexion of the skin.
Fibroblasts are needed for the constant healing and rejuvenation of the skin, which is done by creating new collagen and extra cellular matrix (ECM).
