If you have experienced severe forms of acne in the past, you may now be dealing with acne scarring. Leftover acne scar tissue can be unsightly and hurt your self-confidence. Fortunately, we offer microneedling, an effective acne scar treatment method. These treatments are great for reducing the appearance of scar tissue with ease. Check out how microneedling for acne scars can help you start looking great again:
The term microneedling describes exactly how it works. We use extremely tiny needles to puncture your skin and help with rejuvenation. Most of these needles are .5 to 2.5 millimeters in width. The needles are only used on the surface, so do not expect any deep needle pricks. Most of our patients report feeling nothing more than pinpricks on the skin. Microneedling uses these microscopic injuries in the skin’s outermost layer to diminish any appearance of scar tissue.
Microneedling works by reinvigorating the collagen production in your skin. The superficial needle insertions cause your skin to generate collagen and elastin. Your skin will be red and inflamed immediately following the procedure, but you can expect to have softer feeling skin with less noticeable scar tissue remaining once the redness has healed.
Acne scarring is an extremely common condition among today’s youth and adult population. In fact, it is reported that over 90% of adolescents and up to 14% of adults are dealing with acne scarring. Research has constantly shown that microneedling dramatically improves the appearance of patient’s skin. Even better, patients report feeling satisfied with their treatment and overall appearance following their procedure. Some patients may experience some mild side effects such as temporary pain and hyperpigmentation.
Like other cosmetic procedures, a series of treatments may be needed to see full results. Microneedling treatments can be performed as little as four weeks apart. Maximum results have been observed for individuals who have underwent four sessions. Research completed by the Dermatologic Surgery Review found that over 95% of patients were happy with their results after the final treatment.
