How To Treat Acne Scars With Microneedling

It is common to feel a little insecure about having acne. Pimples are a common symptom of this skin condition. They can hurt when forming and can look unattractive on your face. After your pimple is gone, you are left with a scar. Read on to find out how to treat acne scars with microneedling

Understand How The Scars Form

Acne scars do not occur from someone just picking at a pimple. A pimple is a type of acne lesion. Lesions are prone to scarring even if you leave it alone. They look similar to cysts and are filled with fluid. The lesion usually forms under the skin and traps the inflammation. It results in more enzymes and white blood cells accumulating in that area.

This leads to acne-causing more destruction to your skin. After the damage, the skin tries to repair itself. This results in a scar.

Talk To A Dermatologist

If you want to approve your appearance, then it is time to talk to a dermatologist. Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is a treatment that can help your skin condition. This procedure uses a tool known as a Dermapen. Dermapen has needles on the end of it. It is used to make tiny pricks in the top layers of the affected skin. The tool is rolled in a different direction on your skin to create the tiny holes.

The holes from the needles form what is called a microchannel. It acts as small injuries to your skin to kick-start your body into repair mode. This results in the stimulation of your elastin and collagen production. These microchannels also allow for skin products to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of your skin.

The end results lead to your skin becoming more moisturized and it also improves the appearance of pores, scars, wrinkles, sun damage, and fine lines.

Know What To Expect

This procedure involves needles, but not painful. Your skin is stimulated, which means redness may be present. As you heal, your skin starts to glow and become more supple. If you want to build collagen and elastin, then you will need to go back for follow up appointments.

It helps to think outside of the box to maintain your healthy and youthful appearance. You start by going to a dermatologist and he or she can give you the proper diagnosis and give you a treatment plan.
