The inflammatory response can be so severe in individuals who are genetically prone to severe acne that it can cause serious damage. Depending on the type of acne scar, they may be referred to as boxcar, ice pick, rolling, or deep acne scars.
In the past, acne scars were typically treated with cortisone injections or microdermabrasion. We now understand that these treatments are only temporary and can actually harm the skin in the long run. Due to medical advances, it is possible to treat acne scarring more effectively.
Microneedling is a highly effective and safe method of treating acne scars. Through microneedling, acne scars can be treated by promoting the growth of new skin cells, and acne can also be prevented by reducing the production of sebum that causes oily skin.
Reducing sebum production will ultimately lead to a reduction of blackheads and whiteheads, as well as cystic acne.
