Treatment of acne scarring by microneedling stimulates your own body to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
In contrast to treatment with dermal fillers, microneedling does not introduce or inject any foreign substances to your body or skin.
Acne scars occur after acne breakouts cause damage to the deep tissues under the skin. Treatment with microneedling stimulates your own skin’s repair process and can result in a thicker dermis (inner skin layer) with a softening and reduction in lines and wrinkles. It also creates superficial micro-channels which allow customized nutrient serums, such as a vitamin C-serum or other serum chosen based on desired outcome, to be absorbed more effectively into the skin, enhancing treatment outcomes without the use of injections or fillers.
