The Dermapen treatment provides an alternative to past methods or rollering, to minimizing the look of surgical scars. A surgical scar is a flesh injury caused by surgery, usually by incision. Since a surgeon like Dr. Turk cannot control all the factors that ultimately affect the look of a surgical star, sometimes it is necessary to treat the appearance after the scar has been healed.
The problem with surgical scars—as opposed to acne scars—is that these thicken over time. While historically speaking, scar therapy has been limited, the Dermapen’s unique skin needling, vertical stamping, and depth control up to 2.5mm, makes this this one of the best options available. The Dermapen micro-needling is made with surgical steel integrity, and includes 11 needles sized at thirty-three gauge. The robust nature of this automated needle tip penetrates deep into difficult scar tissue, thereby improving the appearance, elasticity, mobility, size, and texture of the surgical scar.
Since surgical scars vary from patient to patient, multiple treatments will be needed and also vary depending on the severity and type of scar a patient has.
