Micro-Needling

Collagen stimulation to remove acne scars

Micro-NeedlingMicroneedling is an innovative new technology that can help remove acne scars safely and it works effectively for all skin tones. It offers a range of benefits, including:

  • reduced appearance of acne scars and traumatic and surgical scars
  • reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • improved skin tone and texture
  • fewer signs of aging
  • softer, younger-looking skin
  • even skin tone
  • reduced appearance of stretch marks.

While acne scarring is very common, it can be a permanent condition that leads to a lack of self-confidence and emotional stress in many people. However, the good news is that you can get rid of pitted acne scars and red scars.

Micro-needling (Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy / ECIT) is an innovative aesthetic medicine for treating acne scars, fine lines and other types of scars. It has shown potential for the improvement of skin texture, tone and color. See our before and after page on microneedling results.

Micro-Needling Using the Eclipse MicroPen

When the skin’s collagen levels decrease, wrinkles and scars begin to form. Microneedling can help form small puncture wounds that penetrate deep into the dermis, creating tiny puncture wounds deep inside the dermis. This forms new blood vessels to improve blood flow and mitigation of fibroblasts, which in turn manufacture collagen protein.

The Eclipse MicroPen uses a sterile cartridge with 12 micro-points to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, thus aiding collagen, elastin and melanocyte production. The repair process brings about a thicker epidermis that smoothes out wrinkles for a softer appearance, and restoration of your natural skin tone.

Additionally, it creates micro-channels that enhance the absorption of topical gels, serums and creams that enhance the effect of products on the deeper layers of the skin.

Collagen remodeling is a slow process that can take up to as long as 8 – 12 months to show results with only one or two sessions. We recommend 2-3 treatments, spaced approximately 6-8 weeks apart for most patients. If you have significant acne scars, pitted acne scars or red scars caused by trauma or surgery, consider receiving 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
