If you have ever suffered from the effects of post-acne scars, you’re probably aware of some of the insecurities that go along with having those marks on your body. While acne scars sometimes go away on their own after a few weeks, there are occasions when they don’t, and this dilemma often has people looking for answers and asking the question – Can acne scars be treated on my body.
Treating acne scars
There are now several different treatments being used to successfully remove acne scars. These include laser therapy, and collagen induction therapy (CIT). The treatment choice depends on the type of scarring.
CIT with the Eclipse MicroPen
At Nowak Aesthetics we treat acne scars with CIT using the advanced Eclipse MicroPen. The Eclipse MicroPen works by improving collagen synthesis in the skin.
Unlike other treatments that are only effective on specific skin types, Eclipse MicroPen is safe for use on all skin types.
The MicroPen is a small automated micro-needling device that uses a sterile single-use disposable cartridge containing 12 micro-tips. Its high speed motor makes it a fast and efficient alternative that produces consistent results.
How it works
The skin is first cleaned using a topical gel, and then a lubricating substance is applied to help the MicroPen move easily across the skin. The device creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin and this stimulates collagen and accelerates skin turnover. This results in a clearer, brighter complexion within 30 days.
Downtime is minimal and there are few side-effects. Some temporary redness can be observed after treatment, but this normally settles down within 24 hours.
