The micro-needling treatment improves the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and textural irregularities in the skin. The purpose of micro-needling is to break up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulate the growth of new tissue. This treatment may be used in combination with other laser or chemical peel treatments. Schedule a complimentary consultation to see if this treatment is appropriate for you.
Why Is Micro-Needling Effective?
- Helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
- Works to stimulate and promote collagen production.
- Improves the look of acne scars and marks.
- Helps decrease pigmentation and skin discoloration.
After the micro-needling procedure, there are a few things you should avoid to get the best results. First, try avoiding all retinoids for 24 hours after the treatment. Next, it is best to stay out of the sun for at least 24 hours after the procedure because exposure can cause damage to the skin. Lastly, if in the last 6 months, you have used Accutane, this procedure may not be right for you.
