Wanting the results of the CO2 fractional laser treatment without the down time? Ask if the Dermapen is right for you…
This microneedling device creates tiny portals in your skin to help build reorganized collagen to fill in scars, improve stretch marks and wrinkles, and help with skin texture and pigmentation. With only a day or two of mild redness (versus three days of sunburn with ointment application with our CO2 fractional treatment), you can go about your life. Because it is more superficial than the CO2 treatment, you will need to return monthly for these treatments, with full results in 6 months.
