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.

Good story, but I think the Pelleve in the previous article seems like the better treatment. What do you think?
Dermapen has changed my life , having suffered from Acne and then Acne scars it has not only made my skin smoother then anything I have tried and I have tried a lot :( some painful some that take weeks for the skin to recover :( Micro Needling has come a long way from the Derma Roller to the Dermapen ! Dermapen is winning awards and now I know why
Andrea: So many thank yous for your honest critique of Dermapen, and am so happy for you! I'm in the same situation with acne scars, and you have just answered my questions!
I have suffered from horrible stretch marks on my stomach since my first child in 2005. I have had one session and and I'm so excited to do another! After day 2 and the swelling went down I noticed an extreme difference in the texture and sagging of my skin!My husband and kids noticed and think it's a miracle! I recommend it to anyone suffering from any unsightly scars on their body.
