- Vertical lip lines

How Does Dermapen 3™ Work?
The Dermapen 3™, uses an advanced technology to trick the epidermis (skin) into renewing cells by systematically creating micro-punctures in the skin. The body responds to this in a natural way with increased production of normal woven collagen, without side effects or downtime. This micro-needling technique uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin with AOVN (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needle) technology. This process of moving across the skin creates millions of fine channels. These channels carry 80% more topical nutrients, allowing for transdermal delivery of these nutrients deeper into the skin to feed cells found in the dermis and basal layer of the epidermis.
Compared to traditional dermal rollers, Dermapen 3™ causes less skin damage, which makes it safer and more comfortable and effective. The disposable cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination while the adjustable needle depth allow for a treatment tailored to your individual needs. The Dermapen 3™ is suitable and safe for delicate areas around the eyes, nose and lips.
