Reduce Scaring with Micronnedling

Microneedling is used to treat acne scarring, surgical scars, other scars, burns, enlarged pores, wrinkles (rhytides), and stretch marks, among other skin problems that generate depressions in the skin (striae).
On deep, thin “ice-pick” acne scars, the technique is less effective than on larger scars.

Because microneedling does not use heat to transmit heat to the skin like lasers, patients with melasma (dark patches of skin) and hyperpigmentation (dark spots on the skin) can use it without their pigmentation disorders worsening.
