Dermapen | Micro Needling David Mozersky, M.D. - Dermapen Review

“I have been using Dermapen┬« for the treatment of patients with wrinkles, acne scars, and hypertrophic surgical scars. I have used it both alone, and in combination with platelet rich plasma (PRP). This technology when used alone provides an effective and cost effective method for stimulating collagen production and fibroblast proliferation. When combined with PRP these effects are potentiated. My patients are very comfortable, and the early results make them eager to complete their course of treatment.”

Dr. Mozersky discovered Dermapen at a conference in early 2011, and when he saw it he immediately thought it could be used to deliver platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which he had trouble delivering to his patients in a tolerable manner despite promising outcomes. He does not claim to have invented the technique, which he basically describes as follows: Chemically-activated PRP is painted onto the skin. Dermapen creates patterns of controlled injury that heal quickly but drive the PRP into the skin to promote improved penetration of the various growth factors and other beneficial components. He recommends it for most patients; in his experience it seems to decrease the number of treatments needed and also improves the overall result (as well as patient satisfaction). He supposes one could skip PRP activation or paint PRP on after creating the wound zones but has not studied any of these techniques in a structured clinical trial.
