Dermapen is the next generation of skin needling or skin rolling. This treatment performed by Specialist at Westside Laser Dermatology, Brisbane represents entry level scar revision for patients. A needle delivery system can be individually targeted to acne scars at different depths. Each needle punctures the skin and breaks down collagen, which results in scar remodelling. This treatment provides a simple, cost effective method of acne scar revision, and can be safely used in all skin types. The results are inferior compared to lasers, however costing is kept to a minimum. This treatment is best for atrophic and rolling scars, and can be used in all skin types.
