How Does Microneedling Help With Scars?
Age, genetics, and environmental exposure can be rough on the skin, causing the tissue to become brittle, creased, and exhausted. When home remedies fail to produce results, that’s when the latest microneedling technology comes into play. At Beautiful Skin Denver, our team works with individuals throughout Denver, CO and the surrounding areas to help them achieve smoother, radiant skin. Both men and women can choose from a wide selection of skin rejuvenation techniques, including microneedling treatments, to attain tangible, long-lasting outcomes.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic skin rejuvenation procedure that utilizes tiny surgical-grade needles to create numerous punctures in the skin. This technique is also referred to as collagen induction therapy because intentional micro-injuries stimulate collagen production, a naturally occurring protein in the skin responsible for new tissue growth. As the micro-injuries heal, superficial and damaged tissue peels away to reveal smoother, healthier skin. At Beautiful Skin Denver, we work with each individual to develop a customized microneedling treatment plan to help meet their personal skin rejuvenation goals.
What microneedling can treat
Microneedling treatments can be tailored to address multiple skin-related conditions, including:
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun spots
- Uneven or textured skin
- Enlarged pores
- Skin laxity
An experienced member of our team will assess the condition of your skin and your medical history to determine if you can safely undergo microneedling treatments. Individuals with certain health or dermatological conditions may not qualify or may be better suited for alternative skin rejuvenation treatments.
Can microneedling be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments?
If it helps meet your personal cosmetic goals, we may recommend combining microneedling with additional skin rejuvenation treatments, including PRP (platelet-rich plasma), vitamin-rich solutions, or skin moisturizers. During a consultation, we can discuss your treatment options and what to expect during your treatment session.
How the treatment process works
Microneedling treatments are conducted at Beautiful Skin Denver within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. The skin is thoroughly sanitized prior to treatment. Typically, we will apply topical anesthesia to the treatment site for added comfort. The microneedling device is applied to each treatment site, causing micro-injuries to the skin. Members of the team will provide your home care protocol and post-care instructions.
Can microneedling treat scars?
At Beautiful Skin Denver, our team is proud to use SkinPen®, an FDA-cleared microneedling technology that can treat scars. When skin attempts to repair itself after sustaining damage, this can result in raised skin or uneven textures. This is a common phenomenon in acne scars. Combined with hydrogel, the SkinPen glides gently over the scarred skin to create micro-injuries, stimulating collagen production to allow the tissue to heal and promote a smoother, radiant complexion within a matter of weeks.
How many microneedling treatments will I need?
The number of microneedling treatments recommended will depend on the skin condition being treated and the results you wish to attain. In many cases, individuals will participate in several treatments spaced three to six weeks apart. We will discuss your treatment timeline to help you reach your personal goals.
