MICRONEEDLING FOR ACNE SCARS
Acne scars are traditionally difficult to treat particularly the ice pick scars. Many patients have undergone strong laser treatments to help improve the skin texture. Recent studies comparing microneedling to laser treatments have shown that microneedling for acne scars show equal or better improvement than laser alone. Microneedling also requires less downtime than other more invasive lasers.
Are those blotches on your face driving you crazy? Years of sun exposure or brown spots left behind from popping pimples can leave our skin tone looking uneven and unhealthy. Beautiful, young, radiant skin is typically even in tone and texture. If your skin has been damaged from the sun or years of acne, then microneedling can help. Microneedling helps improve skin discoloration by stimulating collagen and helping to slough dead skin on the surface exposing new less damaged skin. Microneedling can be combined with hyperpigmentation cream or other hyperpigmentation products that further help reduce the visible spots and prevent new ones from forming.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the side effects of microneedling?
What does my skin look like after a treatment? After the procedure, your skin will show signs of redness and will appear similar to a moderate sunburn. There may be some slight swelling. The redness and swelling usually subside in 24-48 hours. By day 3, the skin takes on a pink color, but there is minimal evidence that the procedure has taken place. The skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to the touch for the first 3 days.
Is microneedling painful?
No. The topical numbing cream we apply makes the treatment very comfortable. You may feel a vibration sensation during the treatment, similar to an electric toothbrush.
How many sessions will I need?
That depends on the client, and the degree of correction desired. This is best determined during your initial consultation. We may suggest a session every 3-4 weeks for 4-6 months for optimal results. Continued improvement is then seen up to 6-8 months after the last treatment due to ongoing collagen growth and remodeling. Clients may want to update the treatment every 6-12 months thereafter.
What is the aftercare for microneedling treatments?
You should wear SPF 30+ sunblock every day for at least 10 days after the treatment. You can return to your regular makeup routine after 2-3 days once the skin is nearly back to normal.
Is there anyone who cannot get microneedling?
This treatment should NOT be used on active acne, severe rosacea, active skin infections, keloid scars, actinic keratosis or any skin cancers, eczema, psoriasis, or sebaceous hyperplasia. Clients with a history of cold sores (fever blisters) may want to pre-treat with anti-viral antibiotics to reduce the risk of an outbreak. This treatment depends on the wound healing process for its benefits, so it is not recommended if you have diabetes, have an impaired immune system, or are taking immune-suppressive medications due to an increase in infection risk. Clients on blood thinners may have increased pinpoint bleeding or bruising. Clients who have had Botox should wait at least 14 days, and clients who have had fillers should wait 28 days before having microneedling.
