Can Micro Needling Cause Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation after dermapen microneedling is very rare. Microneedling is much safer in terms of potentially causing hyperpigmentation than fractional lasers. A 30% incidence of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin types has been reported after fractional laser treatments.
The causes of hyperpigmentation include ultraviolet light or sun exposure, pregnancy, hormone treatment, drugs or inflammatory conditions.
Dermapen is an ideal therapy of dermal pigment disorders when used with lightening agents. Fabbrocini et al, 2011 found statistically significant improvement in 20 women with melasma, a form of hyperpigmentation, using dermal needling in conjunction with pigmentation serum.
