Getting a Microneedling Treatment for Acne Scars: A Guide

Microneedling for Acne Scar Treatment | Bodycraft

If you have acne-prone skin, you might already be aware of the hassles of alleviating acne scars from your face. Every pimple – big or small – leaves a mark and sometimes topical treatments like serums and ointments don’t do the trick. Hence, our experts suggest getting a microneedling treatment done to keep acne scars at bay.

What is Microneedling?

If you’re wondering what is microneedling, let us break it down for you. Becoming an increasingly popular cosmetic procedure, microneedling is a minimally invasive clinical treatment targeted towards curbing acne scars by stimulating increased collagen production.

The collagen in your skin is responsible for making it clear, smooth and firm. But as you age, collagen production becomes lesser over the years. Microneedling helps fill that gap and can help reduce acne scars, blackheads, large pores and wrinkles, to an extent.

This acne scar treatment procedure has barely any downtime and is perfect if you have no other underlying skin conditions.

What are the Types of Microneedling Treatments?

Microneedling for acne scars can be administered in two ways – with a derma pen and with radiofrequency.

1. Microneedling with a Dermapen

If you’re asking yourself ‘what is a Dermapen?’, let us elaborate on this acne scar treatment. Dermapen microneedling is an advanced microneedling treatment that can successfully treat skin concerns such as visible signs of ageing, fine lines, pigmentation, stretch marks, and acne scars. This microneedling treatment rejuvenates the skin and promotes scarless healing and natural collagen production in the skin to restore radiance and a youthful look.

This microneedling procedure can benefit your skin in the following ways,

  • Rebuilds collagen and elastin
  • Reduces post-acne marks and scarring
  • Reduces the appearance of pores, blackheads and uneven skin texture
  • Brightens skin pigmentation for a glowing complexion
  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks

2. Microneedling Frequency (MNRF) Treatment

Microneedling Radiofrequency (MNRF) is an advanced cosmetic treatment for skin rejuvenation and treating large open pores, acne scars and skin tightening. The procedure uses radiofrequency waves to stimulate the production of collagen, which reduces the pore size by making your skin tighter. The MNRF treatment is a form of controlled skin injury that stimulates healthy new skin growth and treats common skin issues like acne scars, wrinkles and stretch marks.

If you want to undergo microneedling for acne scars, this procedure can help with the following,

  • Reduces post-acne marks and open pores
  • Softens and minimises scarring from injury
  • Rebuilds collagen and elastin

Is Microneedling for Acne Scars Permanent?

If you’re undergoing the microneedling radiofrequency procedure, you can expect to have permanent results. However, it is important to understand that acne can be caused by a variety of factors including extreme temperatures, hormonal changes in the body, overproduction of sebum in the skin, sun exposure and using the wrong skin care products.

Hence, it is important to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to avoid the occurrence of acne and its subsequent scars. The microneedling procedure conducted with a derma pen can help you in getting constant skin rejuvenation for soft, smooth and even-toned skin.

The Takeaway

Before deciding to remove acne scars from your skin for good, it is important to consult a dermatologist for a proper review of your skin type, skin concerns and the possibility of treatment. You can book a consultation with us or walk-in to your nearest Bodycraft clinic.
