Say hello to the newest wrinkle smoother! It's called Dermapen, and it's the latest trend in skin care, involving micro-needling.
Think of being pin-pricked all over your face. Oh yeah, tiny holes in the skin to rev up collagen/elastin production.
The great news----Dermapen is not surgery. It's another non-invasive beauty treatment that promises a younger, brighter, smoother complexion.
New York City Plastic Surgeon Jon Turk claims that this is a skin-worthy treatment, consisting of 11 tiny needles in an electronically driven pen-like device:
Some dermatologists are comparing the Dermapen to the Fraxel laser, but without the downtime and possible side effects of charring, and so on.
Is there pain?
Yes, but discomfort at a tolerable level.
The Dermapen cost per session----between $250 - $650. You might need about 3 or 4 treatments spaced at 2-4 weeks apart.
