When you suffer from acne during your teenage years, you often feel like it should be done once your hormones even out and you won’t have to deal with anything else, right? Sometimes, acne leaves scars. This means that those pesky teenage acne years will stay with you forever…or at least until you visit Park Avenue Medical Spa. We offer microneedling as one of our acne-scarring treatments to help reduce the appearance of scars from all types of acne. Depending on the extent of your scarring and after a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Tchelebi, you may be a candidate for microneedling as these procedures can address scarring by stimulating the body’s natural healing process, triggering cellular renewal, and increasing collagen production.
How Does Microneedling Work for My Scars?
Microneedling is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that is designed to increase collagen and elastin in the skin. In some cases, radiofrequency (RF) technology is used as an added bonus to cellular regeneration and collagen production. During the process, the microneedling handpiece will be applied to the target areas (usually the face, chest, or back) and will create micro-injuries in the skin, causing the skin to start the natural healing process. The RF energy will also be directed into the deep layers of the skin and heats up the tissue without damaging any of the surrounding skin. This treatment typically lasts about 45 minutes.
There are many benefits of undergoing a micro-needling treatment as:
- Remodels tissue
- Stimulates collagen production
- Encourages cell turnover
- Addresses multiple signs of aging with little to no downtime
- Produces a more radiant complexion
- Improves the appearance of acne scars
Does Microneedling Have Side Effects?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure and does not require any downtime. Some patients may experience soreness, bruising, and swelling after their treatment, though these side effects will dissipate shortly after. This treatment offers long-lasting results as collagen production is slowly renewed over time, creating a new, fresh, and flawless finish.
How Will Microneedling for My Acne Scarring Make Me Feel?
The effects that microneedling has on everyone are different, but for the most part, patients report feeling happy and confident with their results. You no longer have to find ways to hide your face or shy away from a camera. Once the acne scars are reduced, an increased sense of confidence comes over you to show your face with pride!
Don’t wait any longer, contact Dr. Tchelebi at Park Avenue Medical Spa to schedule your consultation to find out if microneedling can help your acne-related scarring.
