Microneedling vs Fraxel
Dermapen versus Fraxel
Dermapen is now unfortunately not being made in the US but you can find Eclipse Micropen. One main difference is that you can do microneedling on all skin types. Fraxel works on pigmentation for the 1927 setting which microneedling does not. For acne scars, both work, but it depends on the depth of scar and skin type which laser, including eMatrix might be better for you. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
