Acne scars are a commonly noticed skin concern that can cause immense emotional distress. If you’re struggling with acne scars, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the AAD, or American Academy of Dermatology, acne is one of the most typical skin conditions in the United States, affecting millions of Americans annually. nAnd while there are many over-the-counter and prescription treatments available, some people may still find themselves struggling with stubborn scars.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for your acne scarring, you may want to consider microneedling. Microneedling is a unique or minimally-invasive procedure using fine needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process and can help to improve the appearance of acne scars. At Rx MD Solutions of Plano, TX, patients with acne scars can ask about our specialized microneedling device, the Skinpen. The Skinpen is an FDA-cleared medical device that provides needling of the surface of the skin to enhance the skin cell turnover and appearance.
Why choose the Skinpen treatment?
Studies have continually found that microneedling is effective in improving the appearance of acne scars. Participants in the study who underwent microneedling treatments saw a significant improvement in their scars, as well as improvement in the skin texture and tone. This is part of what makes microneedling with the Skinpen a highly desirable treatment for men and women who have difficulty with textural skin issues and have been unable to find alternative therapies that work.
What else can the Skinpen treat?
While microneedling is excellent for specific issues such as acne scarring, it can also be used to treat several other conditions affecting the skin. This includes the following:
- Surgical scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Overall skin texture and tone
- Overall skin health
