Dermapen for Acne Scars
Our skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Micropen needle head. The Micropen skin needling system allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis.
The procedure is normally completed with 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. After the procedure there can be a little redness or swelling in the area for a few hours.
Multiple sessions are required generally 1 month apart. Results are dependent on the severity of the acne scars, but when treating scars improvement is usually seen 4-6 months post procedure as it takes healthy collagen about 6 months to fully form.
It is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist with plenty of experience with Microneedling to see if this is the best procedure for you.
