The Advanced Cell Stimulation (ACS) DermaPen® is a gentle, non-surgical technique that uses the body’s own healing processes to naturally regenerate healthy, younger-looking, smoother skin.
The ACS-DermaPen® uses clinically proven microneedling technology to improve the thickness and transparency of the skin. It visibly improves the appearance of:
• Acne Scars or other Scars
• Stretch Marks
• Enlarged Pores
• Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• Loose or Crepey Skin
The ACS-DermaPen® is a very effective treatment on it’s own, or as an addition to other treatments, such as Botox or Juvederm.
How it Works
Through a process known as microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), the ACS-DermaPen® stimulates the body to naturally regenerate new skin cells, as well as collagen and elastin fibers. It also stimulates to creation of new capillaries for improved blood flow to the skin.
This results in firmer, plumper, more youthful-looking skin that has a healthy glow.
