Like most people, you have probably tried countless methods and products to keep your face looking young and your skin looking fresh. It can be extremely frustrating trying to eliminate wrinkles or scars but never seeing results, no matter what you try. If you want to try a method that has been used by A-list celebrities to keep their skin looking flawless, we have a treatment called micro-needling for acne scars. It may sound a bit intimidating, but it’s minimally-invasive and is definitely worth the treatment when you see the outstanding results.
How Does Micro-Needling Treat Acne Scars?
Micro-needling for acne scars helps to make your skin super smooth again, even with deep pitted scars from cystic acne. A special device is used to help stimulate collagen production and thicken the epidermis of your skin so that it looks smooth.
Do Micro-Needling Treatments Hurt?
A numbing cream can be applied prior to the procedure to ensure patient comfort. The needles on the device are so tiny (usually around 0.2 mm to 0.5mm) that most patients report little to no discomfort during the treatment.
How Many Sessions of Micro-Needling Will I Need?
This depends on the level of scarring in the individual and other factors. Some have deeper acne scars, so those may require more treatments to achieve the desired results. You must also wait in between treatments so that the collagen can be produced and your skin can heal. During a consultation, our professional can determine how many sessions of micro-needling are right for you.
