What Can Be Treated with Micro-Needling?
Skin Texture & Scarring
Micro-needling is highly effective for treating surgery scars, uneven skin and texture, enlarged pores, chickenpox scars, burn scars, ice pick scars, appendectomy scars (appendix scar), burn scars, surgical scars, cesarean section (C-section) scars, breast enlargement scars, tummy tuck scarring treatment, and even wound scars.
The process of reducing stretch marks or treating stretch marks occurs as micro-needling promotes the production of new elastin and collagen fibers in the skin. The stretch marks should gradually fill in, and the skin will typically grow thicker, become tighter, and restore its elasticity. The speed at which stretch mark reduction can be achieved varies depending on the severity of the stretch marks. However, visible changes may be detected in as little as a week with dramatic results possible in a month or less.
Limiting hair loss and baldness in certain areas is something that a lot of people ask about. In recent studies, over a three-month period, men who used micro-needling experienced a significant increase in hair growth, in addition to an average of 80 percent reduction in hair loss. The hair restoration and regrowth process has been shown to aid thinning hair, balding, bald spots, receding hairlines, alopecia, and more.
Fine Lines & Deep Wrinkles
Micro-needling can be used to reduce sagging skin, deep wrinkles, fine wrinkles, and skin lines. It can also treat creases such as laughter lines, crows' feet, smile lines, wrinkles on the forehead, and scowl lines. Creases around the mouth or lips can also be treated such as smoker's mouth. The neck and jawline (including jowl lines), the chest (décolletage), and the backs of the hands, among others, are also areas that may benefit from micro-needling.
Acne Scar Reduction
Micro-needling is one of the most effective treatments for acne scar reduction. The procedure can be used to help clear mild acne scars such as brownish and reddish marks that are left behind after a pimple. Even severe acne scar types such as boxcar scars, ice pick scars, and rolling scars can be treated.
