Can Acne Scars Be Improved with Microneedling Treatment?
Are acne scars bringing your self-confidence down? Do you want a more flawless, youthful-looking complexion? Microneedling might be the answer. If you struggle with pockmarks or acne scars, you've probably tried serums, masks, or topical treatments to reduce their appearance. If at-home remedies haven't been effective, consider professional acne scar treatment with microneedling, or similar microchanneling, at Med Spa At Seena One in Burleson, TX. Our skin experts and board-certified physician Dr. Mukhtar Anees use the advanced Rejuvapen™ and ProCell™ microchanneling technology and customize each treatment to achieve a patient's cosmetic goals.

Microneedling near me, and how does it work?
For men and women in the Fort Worth and Burleson, TX area, microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a highly effective facial rejuvenation treatment. A derma roller passes over the skin, making micro-injuries or "holes" in the dermis layer. These small perforations prompt the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two essential ingredients that improve your skin's health and appearance. While this skin rejuvenation treatment induces collagen production, it strengthens the epidermis layer. As your skin heals, it regenerates new cells while increased collagen levels contribute to more youthful, smoother-looking skin. Microneedling is recommended for:
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines or minor facial aging
- Discoloration, hyperpigmentation, or sun damage
- Large pores
What are the causes of acne?
Our skin has tiny holes, or pores, that can become blocked with bacteria, dead skin cells, oil, and dirt. When this happens, you may develop zits or pimples. If you cannot clear it up or repeatedly deal with this issue, you may have acne. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in this country. Although it is not a life-threatening condition, it can be painful and uncomfortable, particularly in severe cases. Acne can also cause emotional distress. Patients who struggle with severe acne can have low self-esteem about how they look, and, over time, it may cause physical scarring.
Can microneedling for acne scars work?
Med Spa At Seena One is proud to offer this noninvasive skin rejuvenation procedure to patients in the Fort Worth and Burleson, TX area. If you struggle with pockmarks or deep acne scars, you might be wondering if microneedling works. Microneedling for acne scars is highly effective, and our before and after patient photos say it all. The process promotes the growth of new collagen in your skin, making it look more youthful. It also reduces the appearance of rolling, ice pick, or boxcar acne scars by encouraging the skin to heal itself. Most microneedling patients notice a reduction of acne scars after a few treatments.
How long does it take for acne scars to fade?
After your acne scar treatment with microneedling, you may experience mild redness and swelling for the first 24 – 48 hours before it naturally subsides. Patients are encouraged to avoid direct sun exposure and drink plenty of water before and after treatments to lessen any possible side effects. It may take about 4 – 8 weeks for the collagen and elastin supply to increase before you see visible changes in your complexion's health. For the best acne scar treatment results, you will probably need more than one microneedling session every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal skin benefits. At a one-on-one consultation, Dr. Anees will evaluate your skin and develop a treatment plan that fits your needs.
