What Is Microneedling and Can it Be Used to Treat Acne Scarring?


Microneedling is a skin tightening and resurfacing procedure which uses a skin-needling instrument. The device contains a set of very small needles which is used to puncture the skin surface. The purpose of this procedure is disrupt and break down acne scar and other scar tissue while forcing the skin to regenerate new skin cells. This process causes the cells to produce new layers of fibers of collagen as well as elastin. This contributes to an increased blood flow within the skin and the healing process to begin. The microneedling procedure generally takes a minimum of 6 treatments in order to obtain best results and can be used in tandem with PRP in order to facilitate quicker healing.
