The lengths you have gone through to hide and heal your acne have been extreme. For years, you’ve hidden behind layers of makeup hoping no one discerns the blemishes in your skin. And you’ve tried just about every cream, lotion, and prescription out there in order to clear up your complexion. And even now, when your acne is finally gone, it left behind scars as a parting gift. So you’re still turning to foundation and trying every cream and lotion out there in order to somehow reduce the severity of acne scars. Never fear – with the advent of micro-needling, you no longer have to resort to concealers or other superficial methods. If you have light to moderate acne scarring, we encourage you to learn more about micro-needling and how it can benefit you!
How Does Micro-Needling Work?
Micro-needling is a treatment that uses a device called a Dermapen to create microscopic channels in your skin. The purpose of this is to prompt your body to begin the healing process. All those tiny openings tell your skin that it’s time to start producing more collagen. From this treatment growth factors will be released, which helps your skin create new, uninjured, and healthy cells.
Treating Acne Scars
Acne scars are a result of the damage done when a pore swells and bursts in your skin. Your body will try to heal the area by bringing in collagen and red blood cells, but sometimes your body produces too much collagen, leading to a raised scar, or won’t produce enough, leading to an indented scar.
Micro-needling corrects acne scars in two ways. Firstly, the Dermapen will gently help dismantle the unhealthy collagen responsible for your scar. Secondly, micro-needling will prompt your skin to produce healthy collagen that will fill in the scar, leaving your skin smoother, tighter, and more refined.
Along with helping you get rid of your acne scars, micro-needling can also help reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Just think of all that new collagen and the wonders it can do! Micro-needling can also smooth out uneven skin texture, diminish large pores, and disappear stretch marks.
