How Does Microneedling for Acne Work?
Can we recap here the different types of acne scarring? Acnes scars are deep fissures on your skin that were created when your acne was active. These scars can only be healed with a boost in collagen production. Microneedling for acne encourages this collagen production in several ways:
- When derma rolling acne, you are placing hundreds of invisible-to-the-eye holes (never say holes) in your skin. Once your body detects this, its natural wound-healing reaction sends an abundance of collagen to the “wound” site to help it heal.
- The micro trauma (micro-injuries)that is created on your skin helps break up the acne scars, so they are smaller and easier for your skin to shed.
- An acne roller actually erases the memory of the scar that your skin has created. So, as your skin continues to reproduce itself over the next several months, the scar will finally be able to go away, and you will have normal skin in its place.
