The Dermapen® can provide results improving the appearances of acne scars and help create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and nonablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen keeps the epidermis integrity full intact, which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
How many sessions?
For acne scarring, it is recommended that the Dermapen be performed once every four weeks for a minimum of five sessions in total. Performing the Dermapen more frequently is not recommended, as the skin is recovering and undergoing the natural process of the bodies innate ability to heal itself. Consult with your medical professional to discuss ongoing Dermapen sessions after the initial five.
