Dermapen is an FDA-approved electronic device that uses multiple fine needles to vertically pierce the skin. This causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation. Unlike needle rollers, Dermapen uses a precisely-controlled stamping method to reach a set depth in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis. Celebrity Laser Spa is proud to be one of the first medical spas in Los Angeles to offer this treatment.

Stem Cell Treatment After Fractional Laser
Stem cells carry powerful growth factors and are highly stimulating to regeneration and healing. In conjunction with the DNA Skin Institute, stem cell therapy is now available as an add-on to Fraxel, Fractional CO2 and Dermapen treatments. 5 days after your procedure, the stem cell solution is applied. If you prefer a full Stem Cell Facial performed by our licensed esthetician, please see more information on the facials page.
How many treatments are necessary to achieve a good response?
Improvement is seen with each treatment but a series of 3-5 treatments is best to achieve optimal results.
How far apart are treatments done?
Dermapen treatments can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
Is Dermapen safe for darker skin types?
Since no melanin-absorbing laser and no heat are involved, the Dermapen is relatively safer than lasers, such as IPL, for darker skin types..
Who performs the treatments?
One of our physician assistants or nurse practioners will perform your treatment.
Is Dermapen painful?
Dermapen uses very fine needles and is relatively comfortable. A topical numbing cream is all that is needed.
How long is each treatment?
For a face, each treatment is 30 to 60 minutes.
How is Dermapen different than a needle roller?
Needle rollers also use needles for skin resurfacing but are often too large and unwieldy for tight areas. They are also dependednt on hand pressure, so the depth of penetration varies depending on the the amount of pressure exerted and the softness of the skin, while the Dermapen depth of penetration is set precisely with an electornic dial. There is also lateral trauma to the skin when the needles on a roller pull out of the skin as the wheel turns. This does not happen with the Dermapen, which relies only on vertical needle action.
What are the immediate after-effects?
There is redness and very minimal bleeding.
