Dermapen 3 utilizes fractional micro-channeling to vertically pierce the skin with patent-pending AOVN technology. Dermapen 3 glides over skin creating millions of fine channels. These channels help in transdermal delivery of topically applied formulations. Dermapen 3 systematically creates micro-channels in the skin and the body naturally responds by launching processes to repair the physical damage. The result is an increased production of normal woven collagen, similar to fractional laser treatments, but without the side effects and downtime. Dermapen 3's single use cartridges eliminate risk of cross-contamination, while the adjustable settings allow for a treatment that is fully tailored to your individual needs. Dermapen 3's design also allows for it to be used in hard to reach areas such as around eyes, eyelids, earlobes, neck, lips, and nose.
