Dermapen vs Fraxel Laser Tampa St. Pete

Posted by Anne Hermann on Fri, Nov 09, 2012 @ 12:29 PM


Dermapen is the newest addition to anti-aging cosmetic treatments in the offices of Anne Hermann, MD. The closest technology to Dermapen is laser, such as Fraxel, which drills holes in the skin that create wounds in the  dermis and epidermis.  On the other hand, Dermapen uses an array of micro-needles which gently pierce the upper layers of the skin which stimulates the skin to repair itself.

Dermapen and Fraxel will have similar results, but the process and side effects are very different.  Side effects of the Fraxel laser can include charring of the skin, reddening and rough, bumpy skin texture.  With Fraxel laser, recovery time can be as long as 3-4 days! On the other hand, Dermapen does not create any of the side effects of Fraxel laser and downtime is as little as 24 hours.

Call now to schedule your Dermapen treatment by calling the offices of Anne Hermann, MD, PA at 813-902-9559.

Tips to Avoid Allergens Tampa St. Pete

Anne Hermann, MD

The offices of Dr. Anne Hermann offer allergy testing to determine your triggers and will advise you in the steps to take to avoid many common allergies.

Below you will find a helpful guide to ways to avoid some of the most common allergens.

Mold Spores  Mold spores can be found indoors as well as outside. The following tips address outside allergens:

  • If you live in an area of high humidity, use a humidifier
  • Avoid mowing grass, handling mulch or walking through uncut fields
  • Thoroughly dry clothes before storing

Pollens  Pollens are tiny, airborne substances that are released by trees, weeds, and grasses.  The following tips can help you avoid pollens year-round:

  • Stay indoors when pollen counts are high
  • Keep windows in your home and car closed and set your air conditioner to “re-circulate”
  • When exercising, breathe through your nose
  • Take allergy medicines, if necessary, 30 minutes before going outdoors

House Dust Mites  Dust mites are invisible creatures that feed on shed skin and live in house.

  • Keep house clean by vacuuming and cleaning curtains and bedding
  • Change furnace and air conditioner filters often
  • Use a dehumidifier to minimize humidity in your home

Animal Dander  Pet allergies are triggered by exposure to the dead flakes of skin (dander) a pet sheds.

  • Use a high-efficiency air filter and vacuum often
  • Keep the pet in a room with a hard surface or wipe able floor
  • Wash your pet weekly with warm water and soap
