The journey isn’t over after acne treatment — you still have to deal with the acne scars left behind. Microneedling is one of the best non-invasive treatments for acne scars and other cosmetic concerns. Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a non-invasive procedure wherein a special device is used to smoothen your skin’s surface by triggering collagen and elastin production.
As the microneedling device is passed over your skin, it makes numerous microscopic channels that activate your body’s healing response. Your body increases blood circulation to the affected area to increase skin cell turnover, replacing the damaged skin tissues with younger and fresher skin. Furthermore, microneedling also encourages collagen production to increase your skin’s volume and smoothen the acne scars.
At Joli Beautique, we often combine microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to provide faster and better results. PRP involves drawing a small sample of your blood, isolating the golden-colored PRP components, and massaging it over your face after microneedling. The PRP contains growth factors that speed up your body’s healing activities, thereby healing the acne scars faster.
