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.
