Microneedling/Acne Scars

Patients are increasingly turning to microneedling to tighten and rejuvenate their skin and reduce the signs of aging. The treatment involves inducing tiny injuries that activate the body’s natural healing process, including new cell growth and collagen production. The result is new, healthier, tighter, and younger-looking skin, with improved blood flow and better response to topical treatment products.

This treatment can also be used for a wide range of skin conditions without significant side effects, including:

  • Smoothing the appearance of acne scars
  • Shrinking enlarged pores
  • Reducing stretch marks
  • Lightening pigment
  • Reducing surgical and burn scars
  • Improving uneven skin texture

How the Treatment Works

Microneedling works by creating thousands of micro-injuries in the skin dermis using a small device featuring a single-use, sterile needle-tip containing multiple tiny needles. The depth of the needle cartridge can be customized to the exact level for your case to deliver optimal results. This activates the body’s natural healing process and forces the skin to produce new elastin and collagen – fibrous proteins that help to keep your skin healthy and elastic.

Compared to other skin treatments, microneedling can be used with most skin types. The treatment is safe and fast, with minimal downtime depending on the depth of the needles and number of overlapping passes on the same spot. Multiple sessions are recommended.

Microneedling will deliver long-lasting results on all parts of your body – face, neck, hands, arms, legs, back, and abdomen. Each session takes about 30-45 minutes.


As the skin repairs itself naturally, the dermis thickens and softens any wrinkles. The treatment also creates microchannels that enable your skin to better absorb topical products. You will begin to see changes to your skin appear after two weeks, and results are typically everlasting.

Are You a Candidate?

Microneedling can be safely used on all skin types and all areas of your body, with minimal downtime. It may dramatically improve your skin health and appearance.

Depending on your case, you may need 3-5 treatments at 4-6 weeks intervals.
