Skin needling can treat any skin type – and an array of skin issues. Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder, Marie Enna-Cocciolone, talks Dermapen3, and everything we need to know about this latest technology in skin needling.
Inskin Cosmedics has been offering skin needling for almost eight years, and with the announcement that the company has been appointed the exclusive Australian distributor for DermapenWorld, Inskin Cosmedics CEO and founder Marie Enna-Cocciolone is well placed to talk about the technology. We talk about the latest version of this leading skin pen – and why it could be just the technology for your salon business.
Why did Inskin Cosmetics decide to take on Dermapen?
“Our Skin-Inject and DNC rollers have been super effective and successful,” says Marie Enna-Cocciolone, CEO and founder of Inskin Cosmedics. “Technology notoriously changes quickly and people look for easier, faster and just as effective advances – skin needling is no exception. We had been searching for a pen for almost three years and Dermapen was our benchmark; never had we imagined we would have the honour of working with the original and global leader itself. We love the fact that Dermapen3 is where we are starting from. We have missed the trials and errors of the first pen, we have benefited from the refining of the Dermapen2 model and we get to start off with the absolute best.”
What is exciting about this newest version?
“As an automated skin needling device, Dermapen is easy to use and the results are simply outstanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The oscillating stamp-like pen harmoniously vibrates and glides over the skin providing the most efficient control, safety and comfort possible, whilst delivering treatment in the shortest time frame with no downtime for your patients. Dermapen with its unique needle tip and strong motor is capable of creating approximately 1300 micro channels per second into the skin. “The concept is made even better with ‘DP Dermaceuticals’ a specially formulated skin care range with just the right level of actives to support skin rejuvenation and wound healing.”
What issues can skin needling correct?
“Used by practitioners in over 50 countries Dermapen effectively treats multiple skin conditions including… ageing, wrinkles, various types of scars, acne, dilated pores, stretch-marks, hyper and hypo pigmentation, rosacea, telangiectasia, milia, keratosis pilaris and alopecia,” says ays Enna-Cocciolone. “It also stimulates angiogenesis [the formation of new blood vessels.]
How painful is skin needling?
“The needle depth is adjustable according to the skin condition you are treating with fully adjustable oscillation speed,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Because of this speed and comfort, patients can enjoy their Dermapen treatment sans topical anaesthetic.”
What technology has gone into Dermapen3?
“Dermapen3 is the gold standard of C.I.T/ Fractional Rejuvenation, which uses an automated needling system,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Over the years the device has been taken through its paces to provide what we know today as a benchmark device.”
This device automated, what does that mean for salons?
“The vertical needle entry has no needle bend risk and is automated to allow for a quick and effective way of treating small or curved skin areas. The treatment is non thermolytic [doesn’t break down molecules] and non-ablative, which eliminates the risk of heat and other injuries,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “The electrically charged automation, powered with a high duty cycle motor with AOVN (Automated Oscillating Vertical Needle) Technology, reduces epidermal damage, discomfort and procedural downtime.”
Is it an easy piece of technology for salons to incorporate into their treatment menu?
“Incredibly easy, but that’s not to say it doesn’t require a dedicated training day to ensure a full theory and practical understanding,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “Both the technology and device are easy to learn and apply, the conditions they treat extensive and non-invasive making Dermapen an effective corrective treatment choice for almost every skin condition. Given that more and more of our partners are enjoying treatments without the need for an anaesthetic cream and considering the speed of the treatment the ROI is also far better than most modalities.”
Do you offer education to your clients?
“Not only do we offer it, we insist on it,” says Enna-Cocciolone. “We won’t sell any of our devices/modalities/brands without training. Our aim is to ensure our partner’s investment is effective, their treatment plans and solutions upgraded and that their customers keep coming back. The Dermapen treatment, whilst easy, has a very serious side and one we ensure it is taught thoroughly.”
