The Dermapen treatment provides radical results in improving the appearance of acne scars. Scars are areas of fibrous tissue that replaces your normal skin after an injury, disease or surgery. When the skin and other tissues of the body repair the wound, a scar may result from this biological process. Acne scars occur when too much oil blocks the skin follicles and the physiology of keratin and old skin cells activate an inflammatory response reaction. The skin will attempt to heal but scar tissue forms when the collagen thickens and deforms.
Luckily, these unsightly acne scars can be diminished with the micro needles of the Dermapen treatment. The treatment stimulates your skin to create and generate new collagen and elastin. The additional benefit of the treatment is new capillary growth, which improves blood supply to the treatment thereby providing a healthy foundation for new skin while bringing existing skin to a healthier state. The process of “skin needling” breaks up the fibrous and uneven acne scar tissue while simultaneously stimulating new tissue growth. While old treatments damaged the epidermis and thinning the skin, the Dermapen keeps the epidermis fully intact while treating the area, which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
While each patient responds differently to the treatment and acne scar conditions vary, the typical regimen is five to six treatments.
