Facial scars caused due to injury, accidents, or any other skin condition can be hard to eliminate without right treatment.

This treatment not only provides fast and effective results, it also saves you from undergoing multiple, highly specialized treatments.

Before you decide whether Dermapen is an ideal treatment option for you or not, it is necessary to understand the basic concepts and working principles behind this technology. Through this comprehensive guide, we will discuss everything you need to know about Dermapen treatment for facial scars and stretch marks. After going through the content, you’ll be able to decide whether or not Dermapen is the best treatment for you. So let’s get started.

What Is Dermapen and How Can It Improve Facial Scars and Stretch Marks?

Dermapen is also known as skin needling therapy or dermarolling, dynamic needling, or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally invasive microneedling technique that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial scars by stimulating growth of healthy new collagen and skin tissue.

Over the years, facial scarring has been treated with different chemical peels and laser resurfacing treatments. However, Dermapen treatment is far less aggressive and it provides noticeable results without causing too much damage to the surrounding skin. It is known to be minimally invasive, as the micro-needle and the roller used in the treatment just puncture the facial skin, leaving the surface body intact.

Apart from improving the facial scar quality and appearance, this procedure also helps patient reclaim skin elasticity, collage formation, and vibrancy. A Dermapen treatment session helps the patient address acne scars, surgical scars, trauma-related scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks.

How Does Dermapen Work to Address Scars and Stretch Marks?

Dermapen treatment provides several benefits compared to other treatments available in the market for facial scaring. It is considered to be safer, yet very effective, when it comes to addressing different skin conditions. The following benefits make this treatment stand out from other aesthetic treatments:


How Does Dermapen Microneedling Work to Address Scars and Stretch Marks?

Dermapen uses a pen-like device with a very fine needle tip, which is rolled over the treatment area. The tiny punctures made by the needle signals the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. This new collagen production restores the damaged skin with healthy and elastic skin tissue.

The patient can determine the needle length which is used for the treatment. Typically, the higher the needle length, the higher the result. However, it is necessary to use the right needle length, as the longer needles can cause increased pain and irritation during the treatment.

The pin springs, which are located on the top of the device, move up and down to puncture the skin. When the needles reach the right depth, the device releases fluid consisting of skin growth factors to further repair the skin and produce healthy collagen.

Since the procedure is non-invasive, it reduces facial swelling, pain, and it provides natural-looking results without leaving behind any scars. Therefore, it is considered to be one of the best treatments for facial scaring and stretch marks.

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Dermapen Treatment?

Almost anyone who is looking to improve the texture and appearance of their skin is an ideal candidate for Dermapen treatment. However, the outcome of this procedure may vary depending on several factors, such as the type & severity of facial scars, the patient’s natural collagen production process, and their metabolic rate.

Since this treatment might cause certain side effects, it is advised to consult a dermatologist or a skin expert before undergoing the procedure. Dr. Rishi from Parashar Skin Clinic, New Delhi can help you evaluate your skin and determine if Dermapen treatment is an ideal option for you or not.

It is important to note that Dermapen treatments are not recommended for very deep facial scars, as it might leave more visible marks on the surface of the skin. In such cases, surgery might be a better option.

What Should Patients Expect During a Dermapen Microneedling Session?

Before the treatment starts, Dr. Rishi of Parashar Skin Clinic will provide information about the treatment procedure. Depending on the patient’s skin condition and the desired results, the dermatologist might decide to use a numbing cream before the procedure.

Once the patient is comfortable, the doctor will use the device to roll over the desired area. Depending on the skin condition and the skin’s sensitivity, the device can cause some sensation or discomfort. In some cases, the patient might experience redness or minor needle penetration marks.

Once the treatment is completed, Dr. Rishi of Parashar Skin Clinic will provide post-care instructions and a few products to enhance the healing process.

How Many Dermapen Sessions Are Typically Recommended for Optimal Results?

The number of Dermapen sessions recommended for a patient depends on several factors. The severity, type, and size of the facial scarring or other skin condition are the most important considerations when deciding whether one or more treatment sessions will be required.

In general, mild to moderate skin conditions can be treated in one or two sessions, while severe conditions may require four to six sessions. After the first session, Dr. Rishi of Parashar Skin Clinic, New Delhi will evaluate the progress and then decide whether more treatment sessions are necessary for visible results.

In most cases, healthy skin and visible results can be achieved within 3 to 4 weeks after the treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects or Risks Associated with Dermapen Treatment?

Since it is a safe and minimally invasive procedure, there are usually very few side effects to this treatment. Swelling and redness are few of the common side effects that a patient might experience after a Dermapen treatment session. These side effects usually fade away within a few days of the treatment.
