Dermapen ™ Burn Scars

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. These scars thicken over time. Unfortunately, scar therapy in general has been historically limited.

Treatment

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.

Dermapen™ Acne Scars

Suffering from Acne Scars: Dermapen™ treatments can produce drastic results improving the appearances of acne scars. The micro-needling action of Dermapen™ creates new collagen and elastin through a process called collagenesis.

New capillary growth is also a result and an added benefit. This can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin, as well as provide a healthy foundation for new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue.
