New Techniques in Acne Scar and Surgical Scar Repair

Dermapen® is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars. Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern. Compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, Dermapen is safe on any skin type, has a short treatment time and minimal discomfort with virtually no downtime. Dermapen : a revolutionary breakthrough for beautiful skin.

Is there any pain with the Dermapen treatment?

Depending on the area being treated and the aggressiveness of treatment, there can be some slight discomfort during the procedure. A topical anesthetic can be applied 15 – 20 minutes prior and is removed before the Dermapen treatment begins for a more comfortable experience.

What are immediate after effects of the Dermapen?

Redness, or erythema, of the skin can appear, as well as possible pinpoint bleeding. The severity of erythema depends on how aggressive the treatment was performed and individual skin type. Minimal swelling may occur and be more noticeable on the second day. Dermapen’s post procedure care will help with redness and swelling.

How many Dermapen treatments will I need?

Benefits of the Dermapen can be seen after just one treatment. Dr. Sofer recommends that 3 – 6 treatments, spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, are performed for maximum results. In cases where a more aggressive treatment schedule is needed such as acne scar revision, a greater number of treatments may be necessary for maximum results.
