What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is also termed collagen induction therapy. In which a special device that contains small microneedles are used to create small punctures on the skin surface. This will increase collagen production and boost the skin’s natural healing process. Microneedling should be performed by a skin expert, if not performed by a professional then it can lead to scarring and you will not get the desired results.
Acne scars are of different types and are caused due to damaged skin cells. Microneedling treatment is best for atrophic and keloid scars. Boxcar, rolling and ice pick scars are the scars that are easily treated by micro-needling.
