I have dealt with acne scars since my teens. While I was pregnant, my face broke out even more, resulting in even more scarring. I was ashamed and embarrassed of my scars so throughout out the years I mastered the skill of concealing them with make-up–I couldn’t step out of the house without a layer of foundation on to hide my face! I started venting to our nurse, Lauren, about my skin concerns and she explained that I would be a great candidate for Dermapen®.
Needles pricking my face? Oh My!
As time went on, I noticed many clients asking about the treatment–most were concerned about micro needling. How could I tell the patient how the treatment felt if I hadn’t done it myself? Finally, I booked my first Dermapen® treatment with Lauren. She was so patient and answered all my questions–I truly felt like a patient during the entire process. She started by cleansing my face then explained the numbing process. The numbing cream, which felt much like Petroleum Jelly, was lathered over my whole face.
Forty-five minutes later, the treatment began and all I could feel was the pressure of the wand glide against my face; NOT a sting or a prick!
Fast forward three days, and my skin was GLOWING! Two weeks later I was able to walk out in public without worrying about applying any layers of foundation. I can’t wait to book my second treatment!
