Anti Aging Medicine has a skin refinishing treatment that's popular on the east and west coast, and is now offered exclusively in Chicago by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Anthony J. Geroulis. Dermapen Fractional Skin Therapy now surpasses laser treatments for its low risk, minimal-to-no downtime, and superior rejuvenating results, making it the most practical cosmetic treatment option for patients to transform skin complexions at a fraction of the cost.
Dermapen works by using a pen-like device containing eleven micro needles to create a series of vertical, minor yet penetrating stamps. Reaching beyond the epidermis to the dermis, the micro needling effect induces critical collagen production and stimulates vital cell regeneration. By simulating the body’s own natural healing process, the skin rebuilds itself to a thicker, smoother, more even and tighter skin texture than previously.
Dermapen Micro Needling Skin Therapy is used for wrinkle and scar minimization on the face or neck or for skin imperfections on the body. The procedure time is about 40 minutes and patients typically have 3 to 5 sessions.
