What is derma stamping?
Derma stamping is a very simple technique, but when performed consistently it can deliver great results after just a few treatments. Derma stamps come with a flat needle cartridge connected to a long handle, similar to rollers and Dr Pen devices, except these cartridges do not roll or pulsate. They are a fixed cartridge stamper. As the name suggests, you will literally stamp the areas you wish to treat by hand. This technique is ideal for treating and targeting more specific areas - such as for hair loss or scarring.
As with the pens and the rollers, stamping delivers a controlled trauma to the skin which in turn stimulates our healing response and boosts collagen and elastin production. Over the course of several treatments, you will see a huge improvement in the area through natural rejuvenation.
What are the benefits of derma stamping?
Decreased Trauma: One of the benefits of derma stamping is the decreased trauma to your skin compared with other techniques. Because you aren't dragging the pen at all, you may notice there is less redness and bleeding post-treatment. You will still experience some redness and mild swelling, however, when performed properly it will be less than when compared with other techniques.
Amazing for Hair Loss: Stamping can improve the appearance of hair loss by increasing the hair follicle size and strength. This is achieved by regulating the chemical signalling in the scalp through the deliberate, controlled trauma process. Stamping can also dramatically increase the absorption of any appropriate hair restoration products. This means that when applied topically, products can penetrate through the newly created micro-channels, and this penetration allows for much better interaction with hair follicles and growth stimulation.
Shorter Treatments: While a derma roller and the pens provide the user with a an easy grip and efficient coverage, the derma stamp can be more productive when working with particular areas repeatedly, such as the forehead or the backs of your shoulders. For this reason, it's also easier for shorter and more targeted treatments.
Minimised Downtime: Some users report that the derma stamp is less painful than the derma roller and the pens, but your experience will definitely be affected by the needle length you use as well as the amount of pressure you apply on the tool while stamping. As with the other devices, the level of discomfort you experience will also come down to your individual pain tolerance and whether or not you choose to use numbing cream before your treatment.
Budget Friendly: Similar to the derma roller, the derma stamp is also more budget friendly than the advanced Dr Pen devices. While far more sophisticated, the Dr Pen devices may be a little intimidating for new users to purchase. By comparison, our derma stamp is only $34.95.
Easy to Use: The derma stamp is very easy to use and may be less daunting for new users. As the name suggests, you simply stamp the area you wish to treat repeatedly.
