Will the Dermapen help repair my damaged skin after fractional laser?

I had 4 laser treatments 2 weeks apart last one on highest level,level 5 it was the Palomar emerge non ablative laser. 19 months on still have scars/dents, pinholes in a grid pattern pigmentation, hypopigmentation recently been recommended the Dermapen and dermabrasion with recell. Would either of these help. Currently using Aspect dr face creams .

It sounds like the laser was performed too high and without enough time in between treatments to allow the skin to heal.  I would definitely not do any other procedures just now on your skin.  Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert in lasers and would healing.

Time...give it time.

Grids can be seen with many fractional deceives including Erbium, CO2 and others. 
IMO 2 weeks apart is ridiculously short intervals- most of us will perform 6-8 weeks apart. 

Regardless, time will tell. My advice is not to use Dermapen - it may give you more grids. 
Continue with your Aspect Dr range, give it 3-4 months. Take selfies or you will have NI 
if it improves or not. 

OK, if it does not improve, see a plastics or dermatologist for an opinion. Have I treated grids-
yes, lots of them. Have I given grids to patients? Yes. It can be fixed. Time will be your best

All the very best,
