Dermapen heralds a new age of Fractional Skin Resurfacing a fraction of the cost of Fractional lasers. The results following Dermapen Fractionation is not as good as lasers, however it does provide an entry-level scar revision process to patients who suffer from atrophic and rolling scars. Results are modest, with minimal recovery times. Specialists at the Acne Specialist Clinics now combine RED LIGHT PHOTOTHERAPY with DERMAPEN to achieve better results. Combination therapy compounds the effects of Dermapen in achieving collagen remodeling, whilst red light phototherapy speeds up the recovery of the Dermapen procedure.
Red light is chosen over BLUE OMNILUX PHOTOTHERAPY due the increase depth of red light and the better anti-inflammatory properties. Blue light only works on the upper most layers of the skin, whilst acne scars lie deep in the dermal layers.
