The challenge in treating a surgical scar lies within the matrix of categories and qualifications of scar tissue, such as whether the scar is hypertrophic or keloid, or whether there are pigmentation flaws.

Dermapen’s ™ unique vertical stamping and depth control up to 2.5mm makes treatment of burn scars with the Dermapen ™ device superior to other methods. With surgical steel integrity, the robust automated needle tip (x12 33 gauge needles) penetrates difficult scar tissue, dramatically improving appearance, texture, elasticity, size and mobility.
