What is Dermapen®?

Dermapen® is a skin care treatment that reduces the signs of wrinkles, acne or surgical scars, and stretch marks. In our Naples office, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña will apply a numbing cream to your skin about 20 minutes before treatment.

The Dermapen penetrates the surface layers of your skin with tiny needles. This skin needling encourages your skin to produce natural collagen that will replace your damaged skin with healthy, new skin. The resulting effect is firmer, smoother, younger looking skin.

There can be some discomfort during a Dermapen treatment because of the needlingaction of the pen on your skin. However, you'll see that the results are worth it. You will experience a pink tone to your skin in the first 24 hours after treatment while your skin heals itself. You may notice dead skin sloughing off 3-4 days following treatment.

The number of treatments you will need to correct your skin issues varies from person to person. In consultation with Dr.Peña at our La Piel Medical Spa, you will discuss the difference that Dermapen can make for you.
