The Meso-Glide collection is the newest innovation in serums for microneedling. It helps the skin needling device move effortlessly across the skin, while effectively delivering beneficial sterile actives. Each serum targets different skin concerns, including acne, pigmentation, scarring, and signs of aging.
Here are the 5 formulations in the MG-Collection range of serums from Dp Dermaceuticals:
- MG-HA35 – Restores, refreshes, and enhances the skin’s appearance. It also contains zinc for better skin repair and vitamin B5 to soothe, heal, and regenerate skin.
- MG-HA35+ – Hydrates skin and improves visible signs of aging. It features the enhanced telomeres technology – GGP that helps prolong the life of a cell to reduce the visible effects of ageing.
- MG-BL – Brightens and lightens uneven skin tone. It has ingredients that can help slow melanin production to reduce the appearance of unwanted pigmentation.
- MG-CLR – Helps clear skin and address problematic skin concerns (acne, comedones, open pores, and oily skin). It contains anti-inflammatories to help calm and soothe skin, as well as stimulate collagen to improve the look of lines and wrinkles
- MG-R.A.S. – Helps reverse the signs of aging and scars. It has a powerful blend of beneficial ingredients to reduce discoloration, rough skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Meso-Glide serums at work
The Dermapen-4 device vertically pierces the skin’s top layers, creating 1920 holes per second. This causes micro injuries and micro trauma, which facilitates faster healing and collagen production. The micro injuries serve as microchannels for the serums to penetrate deeper and deliver their benefits.
The makers of Dermapen MG Collection understand that no skin is the same and will therefore require different treatments. The serums help create a personalized treatment based on the patient’s skin concerns. They can be infused topically into the skin during a Dermapen skin needling treatment or be combined with other formulations, depending on skincare needs and conditions.
What skin conditions does Dermapen treat or improve?
Dermapen-4 microneedling can be used for the following skin concerns:
- Scars (acne, burns, and surgical)
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Aged sagging skin
- Stretch marks
- Hair loss
- And more…
Is Dermapen safe?
Dermapen microneedling is considered safe for rejuvenating the skin and treating scars and wrinkles. It is also safe and effective for all skin types and colors. Plus, compared to typical microneedling rollers, it is safer and more effective as it has adjustable and multi-speed settings that enable personalized treatment.
Why combine Dermapen-4 treatment with MG serums?
Pairing an innovative device like Dermapen-4 with MG serums provide effective results for patients. This enables a customized skin solution that can help improve the appearance of different skin conditions. The DERMAPEN MG Collection™ can be used to address or improve:
- Acne/problematic skin
- Stretch marks
Are there skin preparations before a Dermapen treatment?
We recommend using a period of effective active treatments such as Vitamin A, C, or Resveratrol and Procyanidin for optimal results. This is especially true for thin or delicate skin areas. It is advisable to continue using the recommended solutions following Dermapen treatments for a 6-week period.
How many Dermapen treatments are recommended?
This depends on your skin concerns. Here is the general recommendation:
- For acne scarring: 6 treatments (6 weeks apart)
- For rejuvenation: 4 to 6 treatments (4 weeks apart)
- For stretch marks: <>10 treatments (4 to 6 weeks apart)
How long will I have to wait before I see results?
You may be able to see results after the first treatment, but significant changes in the skin will appear after 4 to 6 treatments. Skin improvements will continue over the next 6 to 12 months following a series of treatments, especially when combined with the recommended post treatment care.
Is Dermapen microneedling painful?
Dermapen treatments for minimum depths are painless. For those over 1mm deep, an application of a topical anesthetic cream 15 to 45 minutes before the procedure is beneficial in making the treatment comfortable and pain-free.
Is there any downtime?
In general, there is no downtime, but it is possible to experience facial redness for 12 to 48 hours following the treatment. Lycogel, a breathable camouflage, can be applied on the area to seal the skin and conceal any redness. Most patients are also able to return to their normal routines immediately after Dermapen treatment.
How much does a Dermapen treatment cost?
We have different packages for Dermapen and Dermapen MG Collection treatments. A consultation with our aesthetic doctor will give you a more accurate estimate. Microneedling can also be performed with other aesthetic treatments for improved skin care results.
How soon can I have the treatment after injectables like Botox and fillers?
At least 14 days after filler injections is recommended before undergoing a Dermapen treatment. This is to allow the bruising from the injections to settle. Otherwise, you can have your Dermapen treatment in Singapore one to two days before fillers or Botox.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SKIN BETWEEN DERMAPEN TREATMENTS
Step 1 (Advanced Resurfacing) – This involves an application of a topical treatment by your clinician or aesthetic doctor to compliment advanced skin needling. It is best to continue using this treatment solution between Dermapen treatments.
Step 2 (Hydrate and Strengthen) – For best results and to make the skin healthy and strong, keep it hydrated and protected from harsh environments. We recommend using a night and day cream from the Beauté Pacifique range of products.
When used daily over a 90-day period, these products can improve skin density, making them ideal to be used during Dermapen treatments. Be sure to wear the right sun protection if you’ll be exposed to the sun.
Step 3 (Cover, Recover, and Protect) – Side effects are unlikely after the procedure. If you, however, experience skin redness or sensitivity, we recommend using post procedure breathable makeup like Lycogel foundation and concealers. These are specially formulated to cover and recover the skin following cosmetic procedures.
