Using SkinPen Microneedling for Acne Scars | Skin Professionals in Dallas
Acne scars can linger for years after a painful breakout. While good at-home skincare and proper sun protection can help, only a professional skin treatment like SkinPen can actually resurface your skin from within. The best part about SkinPen? It’s safe for all skin types 🥰
Our skin professionals at Spa in the City break down microneedling for acne scars with SkinPen.
SkinPen microneedling for acne scars
SkinPen is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device for aesthetic use, making it an incredibly safe and highly effective treatment. It transforms skin in as little as 3 treatment sessions, though many clients see noticeable results after their first session!
SkinPen can improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Traumatic scars
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- And more!
SkinPen smoothes the surface of your skin by creating thousands of microchannels. These microchannels (also referred to as micro injuries) kick-start your skin’s wound healing process and minimize damage to healthy cells. SkinPen remodels skin tissue to improve scars and other textural issues—all while keeping skin intact.
The wound healing process
When we refer to the wound healing process, we are talking about the way your skin naturally heals after something like a scratch, burn, or other skin trauma. With microneedling, we create controlled injuries to start this process. We ensure these controlled injuries are not painful and keep you comfortable throughout the treatment!
Your skin heals in 3 steps:
First, your skin becomes inflamed, which can make it swollen and/or red. This is your immune system actually cleaning the wound to remove any debris. It also increases blood flow and generates new tissue to mend the pierced skin.
During the proliferation stage, your skin uses newly produced skin cells made up of collagen and important proteins to rebuild the skin and heal the wound. This stage can cause skin to look pink or red and have uneven texture.
The final stage of the skin healing process is when new skin tissue and blood vessels replace the wound for a rejuvenated, youthful look!
👆 While the above information applies to all types of healthy wound healing, it also applies to how SkinPen improves acne scars, too!
