ABOUT MICRO-NEEDLING

For Acne & Acne Scars

As if acne isn’t frustrating enough, you often have to deal with stubborn scars that pimples can leave behind. Whether your acne scars developed from cystic acne or from picking at your skin, these scars can last for several months or even years.

If you have tried over-the-counter products but are not achieving the results you desire, you may want to consider microneedling at Skin & Body Refinery to get rid of your acne scars. This procedure can treat a variety of skin care concerns, including acne scars.

Microneedling Downtime, Aftercare & Healing Process

Many of our clients describe the microneedling procedure as what they would imagine sandpaper to feel like it if were scrubbed across the skin. Your Skin & Body Refinery skin specialist will apply a topical numbing product over the surface of your skin before beginning your procedure to eliminate any discomfort. There is no need for anesthesia or medications.

Your skin will be flushed and red and feel somewhat similar to moderate sunburn. Redness can last between 12 to 72 hours. Some patients experience mild swelling, peeling and skin tightness which typically resolves within 72 hours. Your healing time will depend on the depth of your treatment, your skin condition and your skin type. Most of our clients completely heal within 24 hours.

Effectiveness of Microneedling for Acne Scars

Microneedling uses fine needles that prick your skin. During this skin-pricking process, your skin produces more collagen in an effort to heal the small wounds from the needles. This new collagen that is formed helps to smooth out your skin’s appearance, helping to fill in fine lines, wrinkles and scars. Microneedling may be used for:
  • Acne Scars
  • Surgical Scars
  • Sun Damage
  • Sagging Skin
  • Burn Scars
  • Melasma
  • Stretch Marks
  • Large Pores

Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Due to the collagen-inducing effects, microneedling works best for depressed not raised acne scars where there is already excess collagen in the area.

Some studies have found that the effects of microneedling on acne scars are even better when the treatments are combined with vitamin C or PRP.

And unlike other minimally invasive skin corrective treatments, such as laser therapy, microneedling is considered safe for darker skin tones. This is because it doesn’t damage or remove the outer layer of skin. Microneedling is also considered safe for thin and sensitive skin as well.

Microneedling Recovery

After microneedling, your skin will be flushed and red and feel somewhat similar to moderate sunburn. This redness can last between 12 to 72 hours. Some patients experience mild swelling, peeling and skin tightness which typically resolves within 72 hours. Your healing time will depend on your skin condition and skin type as well as the depth of your treatment. Most of our clients completely heal within 24 hours.
