Throughout your teenage and young adult years, there was one constant: your acne. No matter what you did, there it was. Red spots, blackheads, whiteheads, and painful blemishes haunted you for years. But now, even though those spots have finally gone away, they have left your skin pockmarked and scarred. Fortunately, it is possible to make those acne scars a thing of the past. We at Westover Hills Dermatology are proud to offer acne scar treatment with microneedling, which can leave your skin smooth and rejuvenated! We encourage you to learn more about how this option can benefit you.
The Microneedling Process
Microneedling is a safe, effective procedure that uses a special device to create microscopic channels in your skin. These channels trigger your skin to begin the healing process. Fresh blood rushes to the area, and your skin will begin to produce more collagen and elastin, the vital proteins it needs to heal itself properly. This process helps to mitigate the appearance of acne scars, diminishing or even eliminating them altogether.
Microneedling and Acne Scars
Microneedling is incredibly effective at reducing the look and feel of scars caused by acne. Because microneedling is able to help your skin produce more collagen, the skin around your scar can be replaced with new, healthy skin. This process is beneficial for a number of reasons: it can address several skin conditions, be combined with other treatments, and be easily repeated to achieve the desired degree of aesthetic enhancement.
Acne scars can be a bother, but they don’t have to be permanent.
