Facial treatments with microneedling

Acne treatment

You probably think that microneedling is a cosmetic treatment for younger looking skin. You are also right about that, however it can be used for many other treatments; such as acne treatment.

To treat acne scars or other skin spots with microneedling, micropuncture is performed on the skin surface. The needles of the microneedling device penetrate the outer layers of the skin to a depth of 0.2 to 0.75 mm. The process stimulates the natural processes of collagen production and regeneration.

How does the acne treatment work?

Microneedling is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment. Acne treatment is performed directly in our cosmetic studio.

We perform our acne treatment Vienna with the renowned Philings Plasma Pen. At the tip of the device there are microneedles. Before the procedures begin, the needles are sterilized. In addition, the skin should be anesthetized under local anesthesia.

Our cosmetician then applies nanometer-sized puncture wounds to the skin surface with the plasma pen. The body begins to react to puncture wounds and releases collagen to regenerate the skin. Finally, the skin achieves a firm and smooth skin without traces of scars or wrinkles.

Microneedling can help the skin to remove all acne scars. The effect of this microneedling acne method depends on the skin condition or acne marks. In some cases, they disappear far too quickly after the session and in others, multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired result.

How effective is Microneedling acne?

The studies show that microneedling can be most effective when acne scars are depressed. These types of acne spots always show up due to a lack of collagen in the area. With the help of microneedling, the skin is stimulated to produce the right amount of collagen.

But in some conditions with raised acne spots, microneedling would not be as effective as it should be. These types of acne spots only appear because there is too much collagen under the skin.

There are ways to support microneedling to achieve a better result. Some researchers say that the use of vitamin C during microneedling treatment may well affect the results.

Overall, microneedling is one of the most well-known, risk-free and cost-effective methods of treating acne scars compared to other methods such as laser therapy or medication.

Does the acne treatment with microneedling have disadvantages?

In general, microneedling is considered one of the lowest-risk procedures among cosmetic treatments. The intensity of side effects may vary in each patient. Even one person can experience differently after each session.

After each session, some side effects may occur, such as redness, inflammation and bruising. These are normal and expected side effects and should subside after a few days.

In some cases, acne breakouts may occur after treatment, but they disappear after a few days. Remember that in this case you do not touch your skin. It only worsens the healing process.

Microneedling aftercare also does not take long. After your sessions, there are few things to keep in mind. For example, you should not expose your skin to direct sunlight for a few days after the treatment. You should avoid scrubbing your skin or using exfoliants. Touching the area or picking at the skin is also forbidden for a while after the treatment.

To reduce possible inflammation, it is recommended to drink plenty of water a day or two before the treatment. If the treatment is for your face, you should also avoid heavy makeup for a few days before and after the session.

How often should one go to ADELE beauty salon for an acne treatment Vienna?

The first results of microneedling are visible only 24 hours after the procedure. The effect of each session can last for several months.

The procedure should be repeated up to 3 times, with an interval of 10 to 14 days between each session to achieve the final results. The effect lasts from 4 to 6 months after the sessions.

Is the result of acne treatment Vienna permanent?

Yes, once the old misaligned collagen fibers (scar tissue) have been broken down by the wound healing cascade, they do not return. In its place, the body creates a new smooth collagen layer. This drastically reduces the appearance of acne scars.

Microneedling acne is a very natural therapy, as it simply sets the body’s own natural healing mechanisms in motion. Once they have been initiated and the scar transformed, it will not return.

What is the difference in acne treatment Vienna with microneedling compared to Fraxel laser or fractional carbon dioxide laser?

The Fraxel and fractional carbon dioxide lasers are lasers that have a “fractional” delivery of laser energy to the skin. In other words, the entire skin surface is not treated. Individual laser energy columns are shot into the skin, each penetrating up to 2 mm. This stimulates collagen production and helps with problems such as acne scars, wrinkles and pigmentation. Particularly in darker skin types, there is a possibility that these laser treatments can cause postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, areas of skin that have become darker than the surrounding skin as a result of the laser.

Microneedling for acne treatment Vienna, on the other hand, uses several fine needles to penetrate the skin via a roller. This causes thousands of small skin lesions, each penetrating slightly deeper than the laser (up to about 3 mm). Therefore, it is usually more useful for acne scars and wrinkles, as it can go to the base of the problem. There is less risk of pigmentation problems after skin needling and it is a safe treatment even for olive or darker skin types.
