How Microneedling Helps Remove Acne Scars

Microneedling tools are made up of a bunch of tiny needles that are specifically designed to puncture the skin and create small wounds in order to encourage the skin to heal itself by producing more collagen which, in turn, can help smooth out scars, fine lines, and wrinkles; however, microneedling tends to work best for depressed acne scars. In some cases, it may also be recommended to combine microneedling treatments with vitamin C or PRP therapy to help maximize the results.

Unlike other kinds of corrective skin treatments like laser therapy, microneedling is considered to be a safe treatment option for people with darker skin tones, as it will not damage or remove the outer layer of skin. Microneedling is also a safe treatment option for people with thin or sensitive skin.

What to Expect After Your Microneedling Treatment?

Minor side effects, such as redness, bruising, and inflammation, can occur after receiving microneedling but should subside after a few days. Also, during the first few days after your treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight, participating in rigorous exercise, and using exfoliants on alcohol-based skin products to help reduce the risk of making any side effects worse. Acne breakouts may also occur after receiving microneedling but these should be mild and will clear up on their own.

Since microneedling is considered to be a quick treatment option, most people tend to go back to work the day after the procedure, depending on the severity of their side effects. In order to help minimize the risk of side effects, make sure to talk to a professional about how to best prepare for the procedure.
