A treatment course that is worth considering
There are a number of reasons affecting acne development including environmental factors, skin type, genetics, hormonal dysfunctions, etc. Some of the more painful and deep-seated acne tend to leave some level of scarring after they are gone, which is the result of skin heals yourself after damage.
Although scars are a little less noticeable in old age, the skin loses its elasticity, causing the same scars to become much more visible, leading to higher discomfort.
Fortunately, there are a number of effective methods that can be used to get rid of acne scars and they depend on your skin type, genetics and a variety of other factors. Among these, the dermap, which is essentially a microneedle device, looks promising.
Today we’ll take a closer look at dermaps, understand how it works, how it deals with acne scars, and whether it’s worth it.
Acne scars and how they form
Acne scars and all scars in general are the result of poor (too little or too much) collagen formation. When an acne lesion bursts in the skin, its mass spreads to the surrounding skin tissue causing permanent damage.
In response, your body produces collagen fibers at the site of injury in an attempt to replace the dead skin cells with new, healthy cells. However, as with any other wound, sometimes the formation of collagen fibers is different and does not have the same shape and orientation, resulting in different types of acne scars.
Microneedling for acne scars
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedles have been around for some time and have been used to treat a wide range of diseases in the past (Chinese acupuncture), however, with microneedling as an acne scar treatment has been recently introduced.
The needles in modern microneedle devices are made of high quality materials and work by creating hundreds of tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the selected skin layers. The entire treatment is a minimally invasive therapy, ie it is essentially painless.
This mechanism of artificially damaging the skin makes it possible to utilize and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, in particular through elastin and collagen production. In addition, Microneedling is effective in restoring skin texture, shrinking the pores, tightening, tightening and lifting the skin, and making it look younger.
The latest advances in technology have made it possible to develop microneedle devices that allow radio frequencies to penetrate the skin, which, according to experts, is the future of microneedles.
