What is a Dp4™ Treatment?
Our Dp4™ microneedling treatment is a comprehensive system designed to rejuvenate the skin and fight common signs of aging. It can address a wide variety of skin conditions, including wrinkles, acne, and scarring.
But how does our Dp4™ treatment actually work? We’ll answer this question and others below, covering the potential risks, benefits, and more.
What is the Dp4™?
The Dp4™ is a handheld microneedling device featuring state-of-the-art technology and a user-friendly design. One of the biggest benefits of using our in-office pens is the improved efficiency: they can glide across the skin 104% more quickly than other leading devices. It also delivers as much as 80% more nutrients.
Our technicians are trained and experienced in treating patients with cutting-edge dermapens. They will be happy to explain the process to you in detail during your consultation, and make sure you feel comfortable before the treatment begins.
What Does the Dp4™ Microneedling Treatment Do?
The Dp4™ pen has a set of tiny, fine needles that puncture the skin at a precise depth, as the technician moves the tool across the treatment areas. Dp4™’s oscillating action effortlessly glides over the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing and regenerative response. When combined with Dp Dermaceuticals™ and Meso-Glides, the treatment becomes even more versatile.
Dp Dermaceuticals™ are also available for you to support your treatment between visits to Astra Medicare. Using the Dp Dermaceuticals™ as directed will help to create the best results. The line includes:
We’re happy to offer advice on choosing the right products for your skin type, goals, and skincare routine.
What Skin Conditions Can the Dp4™ and the Dp Dermaceuticals™ Improve?
The treatment can be used to tackle various skin conditions and issues, including:
Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Your skin starts to develop wrinkles and fine lines because your body produces less collagen and elastin as you age. As both of these are crucial to maintain a strong, healthy skin structure, reduced collagen and elastic will leave your skin looser, weaker, and thinner. Muscles contracting whenever you form a facial expression (e.g. smiling) will create visible wrinkles and fine lines too.
But the Dp4™ microneedling treatment will boost collagen and elastin production, creating smoother skin and reducing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines.
Exposure to sunlight causes different types of skin damage, including photoaging. According to the Canadian Dermatology Association, signs of photoaging include spider veins on the cheeks, neck, and nose, freckles, deep wrinkles, and liver spots.
Using the Dp4™ microneedling treatment to infuse specialty ingredients and promote collagen and elastin production may improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin.
Hyperpigmentation causes one or more areas of the skin to become darker than others, due to an increase in melanin (the natural pigment responsible for our hair, skin, and eye color).
Dp4™ microneedling treatment and the Dp Dermaceuticals™ can cultivate a more even tone and reduce the visibility of dark patches.
Acne, Scarring and Stretch Marks
Our Dp4™ microneedling treatment and Dp Dermaceuticals™ may improve the appearance of acne, scars, and stretch marks in visible areas. It will cause old scar tissue to break down while stimulating new collagen and elastin to develop, creating healthier, smoother skin.
Rosacea is a common issue that creates reddening skin or visible blood vessels in one or more areas of the face. It may also lead to the formation of bumps filled with pus. Affected skin often resembles a rash or sunburn.
Our Dp4™ microneedling treatment, paired with the Dp Dermaceuticals™ will help to ease the symptoms of rosacea and create a more balanced skin tone.
Are There Any Risks with the Dp4™ Microneedling Treatment Treatment?
There are some risks to consider when being treated with the Dp4™ microneedling pen. These may include:
We will discuss these potential risks during your pre-treatment consultation. You can also contact us between sessions if you have any questions or concerns.
How Many Steps Does the Dermapen Treatment Involve?
There are three steps in this treatment:
Your consultation is a critical part of the process and will take place at Astra Medicare. We will have an open, honest chat about the Dp4™ microneedling treatment, your skin conditions/issues, what you expect to achieve, and more.
If you realize that this might not be the solution for you, we will be happy to recommend alternatives that could work for you.
One of our trained technicians will use our microneedling device on one or more areas of the skin as required. All treatments are performed in a relaxing, comfortable environment.
We will explain how to use our skincare before you leave Astra Medicare. You can achieve the finest results if you use the recommended products as directed between sessions.
The results will start to become visible after your initial session, but the full effects of your Dp4™ microneedling treatment will show after multiple sessions. It’s vital that you continue to take care of your skin at home and use quality products to keep your skin looking at its best.
