I was turned away from my appt. to have the Dermapen procedure saying it would only make my eyes look refreshed. She told me that Fraxel would be better but I was hopeful for the Dermapen procedure because no downtime and its affordable. When I look at Dermapens site they claim this gets rid of under eye wrinkles but at what cost? What is the real story and reviews of Dermapen? I have read some terrible blogs about the $$ they have spent with terrible results. I'm desperate to find answers.
Does Dermapen work for under eye wrinkles or is Fraxel better?

Microneedling with the skinpen, will,without a doubt, help with under eye wrinkles. Depending on the severity of an individuals wrinkles, they may need a series of 4-6 treatments spaced about a month apart. With little to no down time and a reasonable cost, the skinpen is absolutely an amazing procedure.
Microneedling can help!
In our practice we rarely use fractional lasers for under eye wrinkles. We've found a combination of micro needling especially with the addition or PRP, radio frequency, and good skin care have shown better results with virtually no downtime.

Microneedling Could Help
Great question regarding Dermapen vs. Fraxel as that is a common choice for patients to make when choosing ideal treatments. Microneedling was developed years before Fractionated lasers. The idea was that if you macerated the tissue with hundreds of small superficial injuries, you would create a healing response to the injury, and thus improve scars and wrinkling. The disappointing results seen with these instruments is what lead to the development of Fractionated lasers. Simple insertion of a non-heated or electrical injury conjoined needle does little to your skin. Think of getting a blood test, or skin test for allergies. Poking the skin, even multiple times with a series of needles, can only make a change relative to the degree of injury sustained by the skin. There are just much more effective
ways of doing this with a laser. That is not to say that benefits cannot occur, because they can. BUT, only to the degree to which the skin is injured. Using lasers or electrified needle arrays is a much more precise way of delivering a specific level and severity of injury in just one pass. Hope this information helps you make the most informed decisions on your treatment.
