It is understandable if you are concerned about the way that acne scars are affecting your face. For many people, acne scars are worse than acne itself. When you are battling with acne, you have the hope that if you find the right treatment, your acne will clear up. However, nothing can be as disheartening as having your acne completely clear up only to find that it’s left scars behind. In many cases, microneedling is exactly what is needed to help an individual get the skincare results they want.
If this describes your situation, you may have been frantically trying to find something to minimize the appearance of your acne scars. For very light acne scars, some over-the-counter creams and medications might make a minor improvement. However, for those who have deeper scars, there is no medication or cream that will produce the results you want. For these people, it is best to visit a medical professional’s office to see what options are available.
Microneedling is something that has been used to help patients with various skincare conditions for quite a while. What’s so awesome about this treatment is that since microneedling has the ability to penetrate the dermis, it encourages your body to produce more elastin and collagen. This in turn minimizes the appearance of acne-related scars.
Many people who have undergone this treatment are surprised at how good of a job their own body can do at healing acne scars naturally when it is given the right stimulus. This is the stimulus provided by microneedling. What’s nice about this treatment is that in addition to addressing your acne scars, it improves the overall tone and texture of the area that is being treated.
Microneedling is an adjustable treatment. Depending on the length of the needles, the treatment can be used to penetrate deep into the skin, or it can address surface issues. Another facet than makes this procedure so phenomenal is that it is able to produce the results you want without requiring you to undergo extremely invasive surgery. As an added benefit, you won’t have to worry about long recovery periods after your treatment.
Another nice thing about microneedling is that this is not a treatment you need to have repeated every couple of months. You are able to have the procedure performed once or twice a year and enjoy the amazing results.
