What is Microneedling?
Microneedling works by triggering your body’s natural healing and regeneration processes, and nearly everyone who has used it to treat acne scars has reported at least some type of improvement. When you visit us at Westover Hills Dermatology for a microneedling treatment, we’ll make sure to customize the treatment based on your wants and needs.
During the procedure, a special microneedling device is used to create many tiny micro-channels in your skin. Microneedling is sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy because of the skin’s response to the micro-openings that are created during the treatment. Your body’s healing process is triggered by the treatment, resulting in cell turnover. Your skin sends collagen and elastin to the treated area, naturally healing even deep acne scars.
Although the results vary from patient to patient, most of the individuals who visit our office report improved texture, firmness, and hydration in the treated regions along with a dramatic improvement in the appearance of scars.
Oftentimes, a series of microneedling treatments is needed in order to achieve the desired results. However, it all depends on the situation. When you consult with Dr. Opeola and her team of experts, you’ll learn more about the type of results you can expect.
