Say Adios to Acne Scars with Microneedling
Acne scarring is a common side effect for those with acne-prone skin. According to a recent statistic from Cleveland Clinic, 80% of people in the 11 to 30-year-old range will get acne and one of five of those experience acne scars.
These scars can impede self-confidence and get in the way of an individual’s aesthetic ideals. Microneedling is one of the solutions we offer at SkinCenter for those who want to part ways with scars and say hello to a clearer complexion. It’s an empowering remedy for those that want to (finally) love the skin they’re in. Here’s what you should know about microneedling and what you can expect before you schedule a treatment at Westchester’s best SkinCenter.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a non-surgical way to reconstruct the skin. The procedure is typically performed on the face, neck, and/or chest, depending on which areas are in need of scar removal.
During the treatment, a microneedling tool with several small needles targets skin surfaces that have acne scars. A skilled aesthethician at SkinCenter applies the tool to the top layer of your skin, creating tiny pricks called “micro-injuries”. This triggers the body’s natural healing process to increase collagen and elastin production while alleviating discoloration, shrinking pores, and smoothing the skin. One side bonus of microneedling is that it makes your skin more radiant for an extra confidence boost.
What Can I Expect During My Session?
Microneedling sessions can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 45 minutes. A lot of it depends on the size of the area that’s being treated as well as the severity of the scars. Most users report little to no pain during the treatment. And minimal downtime means that you won’t have to take time off work to start revolutionizing your skin by tapping into the potency of microneedling.
How Many Sessions Needed
Typically, miconeedling treatments are scheduled every four to six weeks For many patients, it takes 6 treatment appointments to have a reduction of scarring. During your consultation, an aesthetic nurse specialist or doctor will walk you through your customized microneedling plan. We promise total transparency at every stage of the process so there are no surprises during your scar reduction l journey.
