In recognition of National Acne Awareness Month, there’s never been a better time to talk about the removal of acne scars. While lasers have long been considered the standard in scar removal, an alternative device called Dermapen may prove to be a more accessible choice for patients on a budget.

Dermapen works well for acne scar removal, softening uneven skin tone while smoothing surfaces with a technique called microneedling. Although microneedling has been around for decades, Dermapen has automated and amplified the process so it’s even more effective.

To understand microneedling, it’s important to first start with the way skin and collagen works. When a small wound is created in the skin, collagen will produce naturally in response to our body’s healing process. Amplify this progression – gently – and skin will be smoother and tighter due to its natural response to the microneedling.

Dermapen isn’t used exclusively for acne scars, though – it can benefit multiple conditions. Dermapen is an excellent treatment for women who want tighter skin, reduced stretch marks or burn scars, and to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Behind the Process of Microneedling

In addition to collagen production, microneedling also allows for greater product penetration, allowing active ingredients to penetrate far deeper than when applied on untouched skin. Serums applied immediately after Dermapen treatment sink deep into the skin’s surface to significantly improve its texture and overall appearance.

Other benefits of Dermapen include the reduction of sun damage and other pigmentation issues.

If acne scars have consistently bothered you throughout your adult life, there’s an easier way to smooth skin and be free from the memories of bad skin. Dermapen may be an excellent and affordable choice. For more information on the procedure, view an interactive video of how Dermapen works and how it can benefit your skin.
