Acne scars are a sad but unavoidable consequence of acne breakouts. As you grow older, your skin’s ability to regenerate and produce new collagen fibers is compromised, leading to acne scars that don’t fade away. We provide highly personalized microneedling-based acne scar treatments that catalyze your body’s natural collagen production capabilities. We offer microneedling treatments to stimulate collagen production and skin cell regeneration, making your skin look smooth, even-textured, and scar-free.
Personalized acne scar treatments in Virginia Beach
We offer two unique microneedling options for acne scar treatment in Virginia Beach
Microneedling is a cutting-edge collagen induction therapy that encourages your body to produce new collagen fibers. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, making your skin look firm, contoured, and youthful. When you’re young, your scars heal quickly because your body produces a high volume of collagen. But as you grow older, your body’s depleted collagen reserves lead to stubborn acne scars that don’t fade away.
Microneedling involves using specialized devices to make thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s surface. The micro-channels activate your body’s natural healing response, including collagen production and skin cell regeneration. Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers to fill out the acne scars, making your skin look smoother and more even-textured. We perform microneedling using two specialized devices — Morpheus8 and SkinPen.
SkinPen is a cutting-edge microneedling device that can be adjusted according to your specific skin depth, type, and concerns. The cosmetic provider can adjust the depth of the needles to ensure optimal results without harsh side effects or unwanted skin damage.
Morpheus8 combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy. When the ultrafine needles penetrate your skin’s surface, they deliver radiofrequency energy into the deep dermal layers. This treatment catalyzes collagen production to ensure superior results.
Benefits of microneedling-based acne scar treatments:
- No incisions or scarring
- Stimulate natural collagen production
- No unwanted skin damage
- Tighten the skin tissues
- Reduce prominent scars
- Improve overall skin tone
- Concludes within an hour
- No harsh side effects
- No downtime
Your acne scar treatment experience: complete within an hour
Acne scar treatment is performed as a simple, in-office procedure. The cosmetic provider cleanses your facial skin and applies a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort. The SkinPen or Morpheus8 device is adjusted according to your unique skin type and depth. Based on your unique goals, the cosmetic provider creates thousands of micro-injuries on the skin’s surface using the chosen microneedling device. The entire procedure concludes within an hour.
Minimal post-treatment side effects
Acne scar treatment may leave your skin looking red, flushed, swollen, and inflamed. But the side effects usually dissipate within two days. There are no major complications.
No downtime or activity limitations
Microneedling doesn’t involve downtime or major activity limitations. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, and you should avoid strenuous workouts and physical activities for around 2 days or until the side effects dissipate completely.
Cumulative results over several weeks and months
Microneedling produces cumulative results over multiple weeks and months. Your skin will gradually look tighter and smoother as your body produces new collagen fibers. Most patients need 3 to 4 microneedling sessions spaced around 3 months apart for optimal results.
