What is Dermapen/Dermaroller Mesotherapy
Mesotherapy is a French technique to effectively deliver active ingredients to the subcutaneous layer of the skin.
By using dermapen or dermaroller, there will be micro pores created on the top layer of the skin. The pores are the entry points for the active ingredients to reach the deeper layers of the skin such as the dermis and the subcutaneous layer.
The active ingredients depend on what the doctors and the patients want to achieve. For instance, for hydrating and stretch marks or loose skin, doctors may choose something that contains vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, peptide and minerals.
What is the difference between this and direct injection into the subcutaneous layer?
The French invented the real mesotherapy because they noticed that when these substances injected into the subcutaneous layer that has very rich vessel supply may cause a lot of swelling and bleeding. Also the substances are being carried away too fast by surrounding blood vessels causing them less effective.
Hence Dermapen/Dermaroller mesotherapy has minimal down time, minimal swelling and yet gives you the most effective result.

This is because the dermis of the skin is growing faster after being awaken by the micro pores. This effect will last for 2 days. The results will come after 2 weeks.
