Will Dermapen work on an old facial scar?

I have a very old facial scar from a birthmark I was born with. Had it removed and left with a scar. Had scar revision surgery and one round of co2 laser. Have tried clear and brilliant 5 times and nothing seems to improve it to date. Would dermapen work for this type of case?

CO2 laser is also an effective means to improve the appearance of a scar. Dermapen is also very effective modality to improve the appearance of scars.  It works by stimulating collagen production in the skin.  Both may require multiple treatments to get the optimal result.

The dermapen is a very good device for microneedling. Microneedling can be very effective for surface scar revision but it really takes an examination to best advise. When microneedling is used you should expect approximately 6-8 treatments to get the maximal result. Good luck.
