01 Aug Radiofrequency Micro-Needling for the Treatment of Acne Scars
Dealing with acne scars can be discouraging. It is very common for people who have acne scars to try to cover up their problem. And while makeup can go a long way in helping a woman to even out her skin tone, it is usually much better to address the real problem instead of simply covering it up. Plus, men aren’t as willing to use makeup to cover up their scars. As such, both men and women come to our office looking for ways to treat their acne scars. This is because there are some cosmetic procedures that have proven to be beneficial when helping people deal with acne scars. One of these is radiofrequency micro-needling.
You may be familiar with the micro-needling process. This treatment involves using a special device on the skin that has many fine needles. Radiofrequency micro-needling delivers RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin using a similar tool.
The idea behind this treatment is very simple. As the very small needles carry the radiofrequency energy into the lower layers of skin, it stimulates collagen and elastin production. As soon as the micro-channels are produced and the skin is heated at the lower levels, the production of collagen and elastin goes into overdrive. They help to restructure the layers of the skin. In addition to sending more collagen and elastin to the targeted areas, the skin in the area surrounding the treated region is also benefited.
In addition to being used for acne scars, radiofrequency micro-needling has proven to be extremely beneficial for treating a wide variety of other skin conditions. If you are dealing with uneven skin texture, cellulite, loose skin or stretch marks, this procedure may be right for you. The reason why it can help with so many different skin issues is because it helps to restructure the skin and produce beneficial substances. The skin is basically re-created through this treatment.
