Microneedling for Acne Scars

Acne Scar Treatments at Papillon Bleu Aesthetics in Coquitlam, BC.

Microneedling is a skin-rejuvenating procedure in which tiny needles create punctures in the top layer of skin with the goal of improving overall skin texture.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color. During this procedure, the treatment device is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Microneedling also creates micro-channels that allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.

How is the procedure done?

A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Microneedling pen. Your skin-care professional will apply vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid ( a natural product that already exists in your skin) to your skin and select the appropriate pen position based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What are the benefits of the treatment?

Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Microneedling can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.

What areas of the body can be treated?

Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

What does the treatment feel like?

What does the treatment feel like?

The feeling is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.

What is the downtime?

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment,  you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.

When will I see the results of the treatment?

When will I see the results of the treatment?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.

How many treatments will I require?

How many treatments will I require?

Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments with Vitamin C and HA spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 3 more sessions with PRP at 4-6 week intervals.
