Micro needling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate skin and treat scars and wrinkles. Although Micro needling has proven to be an extremely effective treatment for promoting cell turn over and enhancing a youthful appearance, not everyone is a candidate for this treatment.
Micro needling also known as collagen induction therapy uses a series of controlled micro-injuries via tiny punctures into the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen and elastin reproduction.
If a patient is suffering from active acne rosacea, eczema, warts, herpes, or active acne, these tiny micro-injuries will do more harm than good. If a patient has any of the above mentioned, micro needling will actually worsen the skin condition or further spread any active acne.
Micro-needling is an effective option for treating old acne scars, as it encourages the production and healing of new, healthy skin cells that will create a smoother, more even appearance on the surface of the skin.
