Unlock Radiant Skin with Microneedling Scar Removal

At Allied Dermatology, we understand that scars can be more than just a physical reminder—they can affect one’s confidence and self-esteem. We’re excited to shed light on an innovative solution that has been transforming scar treatment: microneedling. This minimally invasive procedure has shown remarkable results in improving the appearance of various scars, and we’re here to guide you through the ins and outs of microneedling scar removal.

Understanding Microneedling: A Brief Overview

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, involves using a device with fine needles to create tiny, controlled injuries in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, prompting the production of collagen and elastin—the building blocks of smooth, healthy skin. When applied to scarred areas, microneedling encourages the skin to regenerate, resulting in a smoother and more even complexion.

Why Microneedling for Scar Removal?

Numerous studies, including ones cited by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, highlight the effectiveness of microneedling in improving the appearance of scars. This includes surgical scars, acne scars, and traumatic scars. Microneedling helps to break down scar tissue, promote collagen synthesis, and encourage the growth of new, healthier skin cells.

Our patients have seen notable benefits from microneedling, especially when the procedure is performed early in the scar’s development. By addressing scars promptly, microneedling can prevent long-term aesthetic concerns and enhance overall skin texture.

The Microneedling Experience: Before, During, and After

Before the Procedure:

  • During a consultation, one of our dermatologists will assess your skin and determine if microneedling is the right solution for you. 
  • Preparing for microneedling involves avoiding certain skincare products and medications to reduce the risk of irritation. 
  • Our team will provide detailed pre-procedure instructions to ensure optimal results and a comfortable experience.

During the Procedure: 

  • Microneedling is a relatively quick and minimally discomforting procedure.
  • A topical anesthetic is applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment.
  • The microneedling device is carefully maneuvered over the scarred area, creating micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production.

After the Procedure: 

  • Mild redness and swelling are common after microneedling, but these effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days. 
  • Our team will provide post-procedure care instructions, including the use of gentle skincare products. 
  • Multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results, depending on the severity of the scars.
