How does Microneedling Scar Reduction Treatment Work?
Microneedling is the controlled injury of the epidermis in order to stimulate collagen production. Different microneedling devices and needle sizes can be used to achieve different results, which makes microneedling versatile and flexible. When used to treat the appearance of scars, the needle size is usually 1.5-2 mm. This size needle is small enough that the pain experienced during the treatment is minimal, and the treatment itself requires no downtime. You can return to work or other daily activities immediately after a microneedling session with an easy mind knowing that your scars are being reduced. Most scars require more than one treatment session in order for the patient to see a substantial reduction in appearance, and results are not immediate due to the fact that collagen production continues 3-6 months after the treatments.
Which Scars can Microneedling Address?
Microneedling has a wide variety of uses, and that includes which scars it is able to treat. Microneedling has been observed to reduce the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Post-surgical scars
- Burn scars
- Post-varicella scars
- Post-traumatic scars
Microneedling is safe to use on all skin types as it reduces the chance for hyperpigmentation that is prevalent in darker complexions. After a microneedling session, it is advised that the patient wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure in order to even further reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is capable of changing lives through the simple procedure that stimulates the body’s own natural response. The body heals itself in a safe, effective and highly-studied treatment. If you have scars that cause you embarrassment or bring back painful memories that you would like to get rid of, contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
