Scars are a normal part of the body’s healing process and form when the skin repairs itself following a wound. They form as a result of a range of different circumstances and can vary widely in their appearance. Scars can occur as a result of skin conditions such as acne, surgery, or accidents and injury. While the formation of scars may be a natural process, some people find their scars unattractive, which can impact their self-esteem and confidence. At Ideal Face & Body in Beverly Hills, CA, we are pleased to offer targeted treatments to help improve the appearance of scars. One of the best of these treatments is microneedling, and for good reason. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more!
How Does Microneedling Work On Scars?
Whether you have acne scarring, post-surgery scars, or scars following an accident, our professional could dramatically reduce your scarring with our microneedling treatment using the Eclipse MicroPen. Microneedling is generally a safe, fast, and efficient way to improve the look of scars and other issues like stretch marks. It can achieve impressive results in many cases, and in a relatively short period of time.
The Eclipse MicroPen features adjustable needles that penetrate the dermis at a controlled depth. As the adjustable needles penetrate the dermis, micro-channels begin to form. The formation of these micro-bruises causes the activation of growth factor release, along with increased collagen production. This new collagen is deposited and then helps to improve the appearance of the scar by restructuring the skin. The result is usually scars that are less defined as the edges of the scar are softened and have a smoother texture.
Who Can Receive Microneedling?
Microneedling can be used for the treatment of various types of scars and on all skin tones. Research shows that the process does not cause hyperpigmentation, so regardless of your skin tone, your scarring and stretch marks could be effectively treated through a series of microneedling treatments. However, your candidacy can ultimately be determined during a consultation.
How Long Will It Take to See the Results?
Following each microneedling treatment, there should be an improvement in the appearance of the scarring. To achieve the best results, a course of treatments will most likely be needed, with the scar gradually improving following each treatment. Improvement of the scarring should be noticeable in time.
Following the course of the microneedling treatments, the scars should be less prominent as a result of their smoother texture, softened edges, and reduced color. This means that you could see incredible improvements in a matter of weeks. However, results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
