The Total Aesthetics DifferenceTighten and rejuvenate skin without surgery

Have you ever wanted to improve a scar or rejuvenate your skin without surgery, peels or lasers? Total Aesthetics is pleased to offer DermaPen®, the award-winning, FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment that can reduce fine lines, enlarged pores and wrinkles as it stimulates the production of collagen.

Utilizing fractional micro-needling technology, DermaPen harnesses the skin’s own repair processes to reinvigorate damaged and aging skin and improve stretch marks and scars, including notoriously resistant acne scars. Multiple treatments are most effective. 

DermaPen can be used in conjunction with other modalities, including IPL, Platelet Enriched Plasma (PRP), radio frequency skin tightening and our SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion. This safe and effective treatment was awarded the “Best Professional Skin Rejuvenation Device” for 2012.

What is Dermapen?

Dermapen utilizes a 12 or 36 microneedle tip to gently puncture the skin as it glides over the treatment area.

Dermapen, with its microneedling technology, initiates the wound healing process to release growth factors and produce collagen and elastin. Dermapen creates less damage to the skin than some ablative treatments like dermal rolling and lasers.

The end result is smoother, rejuvenated skin with improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, Melasma, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, stretch marks and rough texture.
