The most successful approach used up to now is Derma rollering. This can be a mechanical device which contains surgical metal micro-needles in a wheel which is rolled up and down the affected space. Needle length is generally 1.5mm and the skin is handled 4 instances in three completely different instructions. We have used this system in our clinics for the last 4 years, treating over a 1000 patients. The outcomes have been extraordinarily good to this point. The process is, nonetheless, painful and leaves the affected person very pink for 4 days after the procedure. The new Dermapen uses the same principal but fairly than using a rolling motion, the Dermapen moves the needles in and out at a price of about 1000 instances per second. This avoids the rolling harm to the pores and skin that can happen with derma rolling.
