Your secret weapon against hair loss
A Derma Stamp is a small handheld device featuring many small surgical needles. This type of treatment is also referred to as micro needling, and it gently punctures the skin to create microscopic wounds. These wounds then activate your body’s healing response, a process of blood clotting, inflammation, tissue growth and finally tissue remodeling. It is thought that the growth factors involved in this healing process, produce newly healed skin which looks and operates much better than it did before.
It’s actually most commonly used to treat acne scarring, stretch marks and wrinkles. However, it’s also proven to be very effective at stimulating hair growth. The Derma Stamp is frequently used alongside Pharma Hermetic Hair Recovery Program Ampoules for better results, though it can also be used alone.
Benefits – Derma Stamps are more gentle than traditional derma rollers, because the needles go straight in and out instead of at an angle. A Derma Stamp is also more suitable for longer hair because there is less chance of the hair getting tangled in comparison to a Derma Roller.
How to use it – Using the stamp with slight pressure, stamp the desired area 4-6 times. The treatment should not be painful and should not draw blood. You will become accustomed to how much pressure you can apply without causing any discomfort.
-Cleanse Derma Stamp before every treatment with hot water & alcohol
-Derma Stamp should be replaced every 6 to 8 months.
If using with Pharma Hermetic Lotion or Minoxidil, you should apply the topical treatment either directly before, or after using the Derma Stamp. This will greatly enhance the effectiveness of these topical treatments, enhancing the rate of absorption. Ideally, you’ll want to apply it after using the Derma Stamp. Of course, the more product that is absorbed into the scalp, the more effective it’s going to be. The Derma Stamp basically creates little temporary holes that stay open for around 30 minutes. So, that’s why Pharma Hermetic Lotion or Minoxidil should be applied quickly in order to gain any benefits.
Results – You can expect to experience hair regrowth after using the Derma Stamp within a few months. However, the exact results you experience will depend upon whether or not you’re using HRP Ampoules or Minoxidil too.
Risks and side effects – Like any treatment, there are some risks and side effects associated with the Derma Stamp. The main risk is you could irritate the scalp if you apply too much pressure. The hair could also become tangled if you use it incorrectly.
Redness is the main side effect you can expect to experience. However, this usually corrects itself within a few hours after the treatment. At the most it should last a few days. If you suffer with a condition on the scalp such as Psoriasis or Eczema, it’s recommended you do not use the Derma Stamp until those conditions have been treated. You should also avoid using it on areas of the scalp with open wounds, or sunburn.
How often do I use my Derma Stamp?
You may believe that by using the Derma Stamp more frequently you will get the results you want sooner.
In fact, using too frequently will do your skin more harm than good.
Your skin needs time to recover from the inflammation response caused by skin needling.
Using too often will break down the collagen in your skin before it has had a chance to form properly.
Remember that collagen production is a slow process; it can take several months of skin needling before you see any real difference. Have patience! Results will come and remember your skin will continue to repair and renew even for months after your last treatment.
