The New “Dermapen” Treatments
These are being offered a number of places, including salons with no medical training or back-up so buyer beware! This is my opinion, particularly after the “dermarollers” caused so many problems and pretty much fizzled.
Dermapens are the latest attempt by “needling” device manufacturers to gain traction. They look like a wide “pen” with little needle like prongs sticking out. When the device is activated, the prongs pierce the skin.
The prongs come in various depths. I’ll be writing more on these later, but, depending on the person doing the treatment and the place where it is done, complications in my opinion could include persistent redness, infections, and scarring.
