Dermapen® Micro-Needling for Scar Treatment
What is the Dermapen®?
The Dermapen® is an alternative to laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and repair. It utilizes a vertical, automated stamping motion in order to better access and treat skin imperfections. As opposed to laser or rolling micro-needling treatments, the Dermapen is relatively painless and requires less recovery time. It minimizes swelling and bleeding and promotes collagen and elastin production in the treated area for improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, scars, burns, and other facial plastic surgery procedures.
The Dermapen and its Effects on Scars
The Dermapen can drastically improve the appearance of surgical scars. These scars can develop over time as scar tissue builds up which can thicken the skin. The affected area can, at times, be difficult for other skin treatments to penetrate. Surgical scars can also cause changes to the pigmentation in the affected area.
The Dermapen can drastically improve surgical scars by utilizing the following:
- Vertical stamping motion allows easy penetration of skin, no matter the thickness
- The depth can be adjusted for sensitive areas
- Dermapen promotes collagen and elastin production
- Strong, single-use stainless steel needles
After Scar Treatment
After surgical scar treatment with the Dermapen, you can expect the following in the affected area:
- Improved appearance
- Improved texture
- Great elasticity and mobility
- Improved pigmentation
