Acne or Scar Removal - Micro Needling Treatment

Acne, the popular, pustules and nodules can be treated with systemic and topical agents and the incidence of sequalae like pigmentation and scars can be considerably reduced. But many time patients turn up for treatment only after the sequalae have set in. Of these scars are the most difficult to treat. Scars can be treated only with modalities which induce collagen remodeling. Let's take a look at how each of the different modalities of treatment works on the scars.

Micro needling

Micro needling is a procedure in which instruments with micro or nano needles are used to produce microscopic holes in the skin as well as the scars which help to induce collagen formation helping in scar corrections. Since there is no heat transmitted though the needles (as with lasers), there is minimal discomfort and rapid recovery. Micro needling works really good for very minor acne scarring. Need to do multiple sittings to get good results. It is a very safe treatment suiting all skin types. When the micro needling treatment is combined with use of meso solutions, the results are spectacular.
