MicroNeedling for Acne Scars – Dermapen® Treatment
MicroNeedling for Acne Scars – Dermapen® Treatment


Introducing the Dermapen, a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin. Dermapen is effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pores, stretch marks, keloid, surgical, and acne scars. This animation will demonstrate how Dermapen treatment can provide drastic results for improving the appearance of acne scars. The unique spring loaded needle tip uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion that enhances results while offering a
more controlled and safer method of treatment than other micro-needling devices. Dermapen’s patent pending, disposable micro-needling tip comes in sterilized individual packages that are easily
replaced and loaded into the spring automated device. The Dermapen tip has
eleven stainless steel micro needles which can be adjusted from 0.5
to 2.5 millimeters, giving practitioners an innovative skin
therapy system that is designed to cater to individual patient needs. Dermapen’s needle depth can be adjusted
during the course of the procedure to accommodate different treatment areas and can easily maneuver around facial
contours and delicate features such as the eyes nose and mouth. For the treatment of acne scars a needle death of 2.0 to 2.5 millimeters is recommended. Damage to the elastic support structure
beneath the skin surface is what causes acne scars. Your skin is comprised of two
layers. The epidermis is the outer protective layer from which skin cells
generate and are shed as they move to the surface, and the underlying layer is
known as the dermis. The dermis is comprised of a loosely
organized mesh-like network of collagen and elastin fibers that provide your skin with structure
support and elasticity. Scars are created in response to skin
damage. Cells called fibroblasts enter the site
that was damaged by acne and create new collagen. However, instead of regenerating a mesh-like network of collagen and elastin fibers in the same manner that existed
before the new collagen is produced in a fashion
where collagen fibrils are linked in a single direction, resulting in fibrous
tissue that lacks the smooth elastic properties of normal skin. This scaring process can result in pits
and depressions, ridges, or thickenings. The following are the most common acne
scars. Ice picks cars are the most common acne
scars and appear as deep narrow pits. Boxcar, depressed fibrotic scars, are the
second most common type of acne scars, typically occurring on the cheeks and
temple regions and appearing as deep or shallow
depressions with steep edges that resemble chicken pox scars. Rolling scars are less common and
appear as broad, shallow, wave-like ridges that result from excessive collagen
production beneath the surface of the skin. Most people have a combination of acne
scar types, and Dermapen treatment can improve the appearance of each. The Dermapen micro-needles that
penetrate the skin puncture some of the cells but do not
damage the entire region. Damage from the micro injuries allow small amounts of
cellular material to leak out and an influx of ions that disrupt the
normal state of the cell. Rather than rapid, catastrophic cell
death that results in an extensive immune response, the Dermapen-treated
cells begin a process of programmed cell death where the cell starts to shrink,
lose its attachments, and breaks into small compartmentalized units. The result is a minimal immune response.
Immune cells that clean up the cell debris are attracted and released cellular signals draw a
better blood supply to the region. Dermapen treatment locally increases
levels of Transforming Growth Factor Beta-3 (TGF Beta-3), which plays an important role in scar-free wound healing. Fibroblasts are attracted and begin new
collagen production, while skin cells that will heal the
damaged surface are mobilized. The minimal immune response and presence of TGF Beta-3 allows new collagen produced to be
oriented in a more mesh-like basketweave pattern than the previous scar tissue. The new tissue fills the micro injury
sites sealing and binding the region together
with collagen, having elastic properties similar to the original skin which drastically reduces the appearance
of acne scars. Dermapen treatment also has an advantage
of being less likely than related treatments to result in a side effect
known as: Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). This condition results from the
simulation of skin pigmenting cells that occurs with more extensive immune
responses. The result is often discoloration of the
treated scar areas particularly in people with darker skin
types. Dermapen is reported to have the
lowest risk of this side-effect compared to other conventional treatments including chemical peels, dermabrasion,
and laser resurfacing. The result is greatly improved skin tone
and texture for all skin types, textures, and pigments. The stamping action of Dermapen’s
vertical needles occurs at a frequency of 90 Hz, which is optimal for blocking pain,
similar to a TENS Device used in physical therapy. Therefore Dermapen is not only
effective in minimizing pain and bleeding, but also offers a safe, consistent
treatment method that rejuvenates the skin. Dermapen offers exceptional results, is cost-effective, easy to use, and has the precision and control of
more expensive treatments. This groundbreaking technology, combined
with low-cost disposable tips, makes Dermapen a revolutionary breakthrough for beautiful skin.
