In the world of DIY microneedling, most of us know about the microneedler (or dermaroller), a unique handheld tool that treats a wide variety of skin issues when applied to the face.
But there's a new microneedler tool from Gin Amber Beauty that revolutionizes your everyday microneedling routine: the Aqua Pen.
What is the Aqua Pen?
Put simply, the Aqua Pen is a type of Dermapen, a skin microneedling tool that promotes natural collagen production to help invigorate skin with a youthful glow, diminish wrinkles, reduce hyperpigmentation, reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and encourage cellular turnover.
Gin Amber Beauty's Aqua Pen brings entirely new possibilities to DIY microneedling and at-home skincare - and that relies mainly in its differences from a standard microneedler / dermaroller.
What Does the Aqua Pen Do That a Microneedler Doesn't?
The main difference is the way in which the tool is used and the pinpoint accuracy it permits. While microneedlers / dermarollers can cover a wider area more quickly than the Aqua Pen, the Aqua Pen has the advantage of dispersing serum with its use.
The Aqua Pen can also directly target hard-to-reach areas that a dermaroller can't get to, like the nose, sensitive areas around the eyes, and around the lips or even on the forehead.
Why Not Just Go With a Dermatologist?
Everyone has their preferences and some like to go to a professional to receive their dermapen treatment. However, treatments like these can be extremely costly, anywhere from $400 to $1,200 for a series of treatments.
Compare that with the price tag of our Aqua Pen, and it's a no-brainer as to which one you should be choosing. Also, because you can achieve nearly the same results with the Aqua Pen as you would at the dermatologist, there's no real reason why treatments can't be done more inexpensively from the comfort of your own home.
Why Should You Be Using an Aqua Pen?
When combined with serum dispersion, the Aqua Pen becomes a powerful, two-in-one microneedling tool and a must-have item in your skincare arsenal.
Some benefits of the Aqua Pen include, but aren't limited to:
- Increases absorption of facial skincare products by over 500%
- Maximize effectiveness of serums
- Boosts natural glow
- Promotes collagen and elastin production
- Improves skin tone and texture
- Reduce the appearance of acne scars
- Diminish appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Access hard to reach areas like nose, under-eyes, lips, and forehead
- Activate cellular turnover
- Promote healthy complexion
How Often Can You Use the Aqua Pen?
Luckily, I've put together a nifty little table that can help you figure out how often you should be using your new Aqua Pen, and exactly what for:
Why Do Serums Matter?
The Aqua Pen allows serum absorption during application, which means that you shouldn't just be using the Aqua Pen for microneedling alone; you should be combining it with a serum to enhance that serum's effects - up to 500%!
Where Can I Purchase the Gin Amber Beauty Aqua Pen?
Don't forget to stock up on replacement cartridges, which you'll need after so many uses of the Aqua Pen. Always be sure to follow usage and replacement instructions as described with your device.
While microneedling with a dermaroller is effective and has its benefits, the Aqua Pen takes skincare to new heights. With its added benefit of dispensing serum during application as well as its ability to reach hard-to-access areas of the face, this microneedling tool is a unique way to enhance and advance your typical DIY microneedling practice.
