Microneedling with Dermapen™
For many men and women with persistent cosmetic skin concerns, over-the-counter skin care products will not efficiently address these issues. Professional skin resurfacing treatments performed at Menard Plastic Surgery, a state-of-the-art facility in Alabama led by plastic surgeon Dr. John Menard, can improve these difficult-to-treat imperfections. We offer the Dermapen™ – one of the newest skin resurfacing treatments available for residents of the Tuscaloosa area.
What Is The Dermapen™?
Dermapen™ works by encouraging the skin to produce new tissue through mild abrasion, making it similar to a chemical peel or a fractional laser resurfacing treatment. Following the treatment, the body naturally promotes healing in the treated area. New healthy skin begins to grow, leading to visible improvements that develop gradually over time for a fresh and rejuvenated appearance.
What Conditions Does The Dermapen™ Treat?
The Dermapen™ can be used to treat skin imperfections that include:
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Burn scars
What Are The Benefits Of A Dermapen™ Treatment?
The Dermapen™ is minimally invasive and can significantly rejuvenate your complexion and produce noticeable results within six to eight days. By encouraging collagen production, the treatment also produces ongoing improvement in your skin as new skin cells become firmer and plumper due to increased collagen.
Are There Any Risks Associated With The Dermapen™?
The procedure is much less invasive than other methods of skin resurfacing, such as chemical peels and fractional laser treatments. The most common side effects of skin treatment with the Dermapen™ are mild stinging, redness, and itching. However, these tend to subside within 48 hours of treatment. If you have a history of fever blisters you should let our aesthetician know before treatment.
What Can I Expect After A Dermapen™ Treatment?
Your skin may sting a bit after treatment, and you must be especially vigilant about protecting your skin from exposure to direct sunlight. You must commit to using quality skin care products to optimize the results of your treatment, including a top quality sunblock with SPF 30 or higher, which you must wear every time you go out.
The Dermapen™ is one of the most advanced treatments for skin rejuvenation in the field today. We are thrilled to offer it to our Tuscaloosa area patients. To schedule a consultation with our master aesthetician at Menard Plastic Surgery in Tuscaloosa, contact our office today.
