Reducing Wrinkles with Dermapen


For those looking to erase wrinkles and reduce acne scarring, the new Dermapen is being used to treat patients in quick sessions where little to no downtime is required afterward. This fractional micro-needling device is used by trained doctors to help lift, tighten and rejuvenate damaged areas of the skin.

Just as other fractional tools use modern heat and radiofrequency technology both to stimulate new collagen growth and produce new elastin below the skin’s surface, Dermapen works much the same way to reduce wrinkles while improving the texture and tone of the skin, reducing acne scarring, stretch marks and enlarged pores.

Dermapen can drastically improve the appearance of scars by aiding in new capillary growth, which in turn improves the blood supply to the damaged area creating healthier existing skin while providing a healthy foundation for new skin growth. New, fresh collagen and elastin growth are the main factors in young, healthy skin, which Dermapen stimulates with each treatment.

When will most patients see results with Dermapen?

Most patients should notice an improvement after just one treatment, especially when the Dermapen procedure is combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to enhance and accelerate results. For patients who seek more than one treatment, they’ll notice improvements after each session.

Is the Dermapen treatment painful?

The Dermapen is equipped with a series of very fine needles for stimulating the skin below the surface, but the treatment is relatively pain free. Your physician will apply a topical numbing cream to the area of treatment before proceeding to ensure optimal comfort.

How often should Dermapen treatments occur?

Many patients may be satisfied with just one treatment, and it’s really up to the doctor and patient to determine how many treatments are best, but typically a series of three treatments total is required to see optimal results.
