How Does Micro needling Work To Repair Acne Scars?

Micro needling is carried out over a course of 6 treatments which are normally between 4 -6 weeks apart. A device which consists of multiple high micro needles, penetrates into the skin rapidly, breakdown the scar tissue. This causes trauma to the skin cells. New skin cells are produced to fix the area. These new skin cells do not contain the damages acne scar tissue. In effect, the skin is empowered to grow new cells over the course of 6 treatments. Acne scars fade with every treatment. There is more good news too. The treatment produces collagen which results in younger looking skin, reduced pores and altogether a substantial improvement in the appearance of the face.

Downtime After Micro needling?

Consider that there will be redness and peeling after micro needling treatments for acne scars. The severity of the healing depends on the sensitivity of the skin. Some people will have more redness than others. It is recommended to take Vitamin C and to apply the correct skin care product as suggested by your therapist during your appointment.

How Many Treatments Of Micro needling Are Recommended?

For improvements in acne scars, consider a course of 6 treatments. This is the protocol on which medical results are based. There will be a gap of 6 weeks between treatments during which time the appropriate skincare routine should be followed. Sun protection is important. Long-term acne cure requires an all-inclusive, comprehensive acne fighting program that arrests fresh breakouts while healing the body from the inside. When this is done, sufferers will never develop acne. If further spots are appearing on the skin, consider an inner body cleanse such as liver coffee enemas or colonic hydrotherapy to remove toxins.
