Can the Dermapen be carried out on Asian skin?
Last updated on September 17th, 2019
Skin needling can be safely performed on all skin colors and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation as the melanocytes remain intact, like the epidermis, during skin needling.
Other invasive procedures such as laser resurfacing are not recommended for Asian skin due to the potential risks of delayed wound healing, pigmentation changes and scarring. This is where skin needling has an advantage as these potential risks are very unlikely due to the epidermis remaining intact.
