What is dermotherapy?

Dermatherapy is an application made with instruments called dermaroller or dermapen.

Dermaroller is in the form of microneedles placed on a cylindrical drum.

Dermapen is the same procedure, but here the needles go in and out automatically, just like sewing machine needles. While the needle sizes are adjusted with the setting on the dermapen, there are different tools in various sizes in the dermaroller.

Both have needle sizes between 0.5mm and 2mm.

Before the procedure, a local anesthetic cream is applied on the skin, then microchannels are opened on the skin surface by moving it in certain directions and under pressure. The direction of movement and pressure level during the procedure are very important to prevent unwanted sagging and damage to the skin. Each roller or dermapen tip must be opened individually.

The procedure is a trauma to the skin and activates wound healing mechanisms, increases blood flow to the area, and increases collagen production from fibroblasts. Collagen is a protein-structured substance located under the skin and is important in tightening the skin. After the procedure, peptide and growth factor-containing treatment agents are applied, allowing it to reach the lower layers through the channels opened on the skin surface.

Points such as performing the procedure in accordance with the sterility rules, choosing the appropriate dermaroller or dermapen needle size, and the quality of the instruments are extremely important in the success of the treatment.
