Although many people dismiss acne as something for teenagers, it can have serious mental effects on those who suffer, which can continue in later life. Even after the active acne has been controlled, the scars can be both psychological and physical. In this article, we’ll discuss how to remove acne scars so you know what options are available to you if you want to treat acne scarring.
How To Remove Acne Scars
For those who suffer from acne, the relief of finally controlling your own face can seem unreal! However, after spending years looking at the flaws and imperfections in the mirror, it can feel unrewarding to see the good once acne has gone. One of the main reasons for this is due to acne scarring — even when the active acne has gone, the scars can remain.
These scars can be from picking at the pimples, leaving them untreated or even just using the wrong products! Good news! Just like acne, this is not something you have to live with because acne scarring can be treated!
What Is Micro Needling?
Though it sounds a bit scary, microneedling is a very simple treatment that can work on a variety of skin concerns and is great for acne scarring! By rolling tiny needles over the surface of the skin, the micro-needling stimulates the skins natural healing which increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.
This means treated areas such as acne scars will kick our bodies natural repair mechanism into gear and after a few treatments (depending on the scar) will remove the scar!
What Is The Réjuvapen?
The Réjuvapen is one of the newest and most high tech needling devices available! Unlike other micro needles the Réjuvapen lets us target the specific areas that need to be treated rather than being forced to treat the surrounding areas. For example we can focus solely on acne scars on the face instead of covering the entire face.
The Réjuvapen also allows the needle depth to be changed during one treatment! So we can go deeper on areas that need it like acne scars and lighter on areas such as the under eye. By going deeper on the areas needed we will see results faster!
Where Can The Réjuvapen Be Used?
Not only can Réjuvapen work on acne scars, it can work all over the body and can be used to help treat the following skin issues:
Lines and Wrinkles
The number of sessions required depends entirely on what area is being treated. For rejuvenation, many people may notice a difference with just one treatment and have an overall healthier glow. However, for treating scarring a minimum of 5 sessions is recommended to fade the scar. Your skin health therapist will go over this with you after a consultation.
