Can microneedling help acne scars?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure that is proven to be safe and effective.
It works by creating microchannels in the skin's surface that stimulate cellular renewal to build new skin and so offers exceptional results for a number of common skin conditions.
Research has shown that this ability to build new skin, can be extremely effective in improving the appearance of scars particularly indented or hypotrophic (indented) scars such as those caused by Chicken Pox or Acne.
It is important to remember that the process of building new skin tissue is progressive and takes time, and so optimal results generally require a course of treatment, and may require a period of pre-treatment skin conditioning to avoid potential adverse effects.
