If you suffer from acne scars, micro-needling may be for you. This unique treatment option is designed to take advantage of your body’s own healing mechanisms. With a series of treatments over the course of a certain amount of time, your skin may become smoother and more radiant. One of the most convenient aspects of this treatment option is that there’s minimal to no downtime.

What is Micro-Needling?

The basic idea behind this treatment is that your skin will repair itself after an injury. Micro-needling creates many tiny channels in your skin. They aren’t large enough to see; however, the process kickstarts the healing process. It also promotes collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin play an important part in your skin’s overall appearance and elasticity.

How is Micro-Needling Performed?

The treatment process is relatively simple and quick. At Plateroti Dermatology, it is performed in the comfort of our office. Typically, hyaluronic acid is used, but we also offer platelet-rich plasma. The device is programmed to puncture your skin at safe depths and speeds. Micro-needling is not just limited to the skin on your face. The non-invasive procedure can be performed on your arms, neck, chest, and more.

Skin Rejuvenation

The healing process will begin immediately. Over the course of some time, you may start to see noticeable changes in your skin’s texture. The upper layer of your skin is being replaced. Furthermore, the increased production of collagen and elastin can make your skin appear more youthful and radiant. Acne scars will start to diminish and fine lines may start to even out as well.

We invite you to learn more about this treatment option, which is available right here at Plateroti Dermatology in Templeton, CA. Our team will be happy to answer your questions. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
