Microneedling for Acne Scar Treatment in Fort Worth

Microneedling has been gaining traction in recent years as a tool for effective and safe acne scar treatment and for good reason. Using the Morpheus8 microneedling treatment, VIP Total Health and Hydration professionals have seen significant improvement in acne scarring and self-image among our clients.

Acne scars affect quality of life

The lasting skin damage left behind by severe acne can have a negative impact on self-image. That can lead to being self-conscious, and even missing out on the rich Fort Worth social scene.

Our goal at VIP is to help our clients find safe and effective solutions so they can leave behind pain and suffering, without the potential side effects of traditional medical treatments. We want our clients to feel healthy and empowered through innovative treatments like microneedling that produce noticeable results.

How is microneedling used for acne scar treatment?

The use of microneedling dates back to the 1990s, when it was first developed as a skin rejuvenation procedure. It has since been used to address a variety of skin concerns, including wrinkles, age spots, and acne scars. 

Microneedling for acne scar treatment is a relatively simple procedure. At VIP, we use the Morpheus8 device that creates tiny punctures in the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the skin to create new collagen and minimize skin imperfections, such as acne scarring. 

Chemical peels vs. microneedling

While microneedling stimulates the skin’s own collagen production to reduce the appearance of acne scars, chemical peels use a chemical solution that removes the top layers of skin. Both procedures get results when used for acne scar treatment, minimizing the appearance of scars. 

Microneedling clients enjoy greatly reduced recovery time and after-care requirements. In addition, microneedling is safe for all skin colors, while chemical peels tend to lighten darker skin tones.

What to expect during and after acne scar treatment

Microneedling is safe for most skin types and colors, and can even be used by those with sensitive skin. Optimal results usually require a few sessions. Your VIP care team will develop a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs and desired results.

Treatment begins with the application of a topical numbing cream. The Morpheus8 professional at VIP will then begin the microneedling treatment and ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the half-hour procedure. Our clients report that they feel just a bit of pressure during their appointment as the medical professional treats their skin.

Caring for your skin after microneedling involves minimizing sun exposure and eliminating harsh facial products for a few days while the body’s healing process takes over. Some clients report minimal redness and sensitivity for 2-24 hours following their treatment. A cold compress and following your prescribed after-care regimen can help minimize these symptoms and promote a quicker healing process.
