Micro-needling for acne scars
Medical micro-needling has been proven to be an excellent treatment for acne scarring. There are scientific studies showing micro-needling can give as good or better results than fractionated laser treatments and fractionated RF treatments and at a fraction of the cost!However, I have found micro-needling to be much more effective when combined with the application of human growth factor serums at the time of the treatment. This treatment works by stimulating the skin to create more collagen and elastic fibers, resulting in thicker, healthier looking skin with greater improvement in the appearance of the acne scars.In my office, we use the ProCell Therapies system which combines motorized micro-needling with concentrated growth factor serums made from human bone marrow stem cells and are seeing excellent results in the treatment of acne scars.
I would suggest the Ematrix over dermaroller for the deep atrophic scars on your face. Ematrix uses fractional RF.
