Dealing with acne can be physically and emotionally taxing. When a person is battling with serious acne outbreaks, they can feel uncertain of themselves. It can be difficult to be in social situations because you don’t know if people are judging you or looking down on you because of your acne. This is why people who are battling teenage acne are happy to reach their adult years because that hormone-induced acne is gone. Unfortunately, for many people, the scars left by teenage acne is worse than the acne itself. And unlike the acne, which is temporary, acne scars have the potential of permanently affecting the appearance of a person’s face. Microneedling for acne scars is a great method to help give your skin a healthier and cleaner look!
The first thing that we need to do is define what microneedling is. Microneedling is a treatment that uses small needles, sometimes hollow or sometimes solid, to make small punctures in your skin. These punctures are therapeutic in nature. Microneedling is a very safe treatment. It has been shown to be effective and has produced long-term results for many individuals battling with acne scars.
Microneedling is a treatment that’s designed to use your own healing process to benefit you. As the needles make microchannels in your skin, your body reacts by creating collagen and other proteins to repair the micro-damage. Since the skin around the microchannels is completely healthy, the healing process goes even faster. There is a cascade healing effect that leaves all of your skin looking healthier, smoother, and rejuvenated. Microneedling for acne scars is a great tool for making the appearance of scars diminish, and in some cases, for even making them disappear!
If you’re wondering if you are a good candidate for microneedling for acne scars, the answer is likely yes. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment. It does not cause significant wounds to your skin. So most people can enjoy the therapeutic treatment of microneedling without any permanent side effects.
Normally, when talking about minimally invasive treatments, factors such as age and the color of your skin come into play when determining how your body will react to the treatment. These factors are a non-issue when it comes to microneedling for acne scars. The nice thing about microneedling is that it can be used even on thin skin.
If you have an infection around the area that’s being treated, then you may not be a good candidate for this treatment. If your body has a problem creating clots or if you have a problem with excessive bleeding even with a small puncture, then it may not be right for you.
Microneedling is a safe therapy that’s very easy to perform. Its minimally invasive nature means that it can work for just about everyone. Don’t let acne scars rob you of your beauty.
