If you have acne scars, you already know how bothersome and irritating they can be. So if you’re looking for an effective treatment option, and wondering – how can I reduce the appearance of acne scars – Dermapen microneedling treatment may be the solution for you.
Dermapen for scar reduction
Dermapen is an automatedmicroneedling device that rejuvenates the skin, and is also an effective treatment for scars, especially acne scars. Dermapen is a pen-shaped device that has a disposable needle tip thatis fitted with eleven stainless steel micro needles, which work to tighten and lift the skin.
Acne scars occur as a result of the damage that takes place in the dermal layer of the skin. This is the middle layer where the collagen and elastin support fibers are located. When the skin is damaged by acne it triggers the body’s healing response, but scar tissue forms because the new collagen fibers are thick and irregular.
How Dermapen works
The micro-needles in the Dermapen vertically stamp the skin at high speed, puncturing some of the skin cells. The resulting micro-injuries lead to the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers, and also improve blood supply to the area. This process takes place gradually, and so there is a noticeable improvement in the appearance of any scars.
What to expect
Some improvement will be seen after one treatment, but a course of 3-6 treatments is recommended for maximum results.
