In addition to chemical peels and microdermabrasion, microneedling is a great option for acne scarring. Micro-punctures in the skin stimulate wound healing, producing new collagen and elastin. Special topicals like stem cells and growth factors can be infused into the skin to help regenerate new skin and reduce scarring.
The risks involved with chemical peels and microneedling are minimal when compared to more invasive laser resurfacing treatments. They are also safe for darker skin tones which have limited options for acne scar reduction treatments.
Microneedling should not be used on active acne sufferers, as it can spread bacteria and make acne worse.
How many treatments will I need to get rid of my acne scars?
How many chemical peels, mid-depth peels and/or micro-needling treatments will you need? Every person is different. Every case is different. Expect to complete at least five or six treatments, and if you have severe acne scarring, the number of potential treatments is limitless. It all depends on the results you want and what your budget allows. You should expect to see a visible improvement in scarring within a few months.
Everyone’s skin is different. The best thing to do is book a New Client Consult + Treatment to discuss and personalize your treatment with products to meet your individual needs.
