How To Smooth Out Stubborn Scars

Sunday, January 3, 2016 - 6:00am
Acne…chicken pox…surgical scars even stretch marks; no matter what kind of scar it is, it can lead to a loss of self-confidence and feelings of unattractiveness,
both of which are devastating!
If you have stubborn scars that have not responded well to previous clinical treatments, it’s time to consider working with your body to dramatically diminish
Although laser has been the gold standard for skin rejuvenation, the cost, recovery time, and treatment were expensive and lengthy. That’s because lasers
require burning or heating different layers of the skin to stimulate collagen.
Today, microneedling, a safe and natural alternative to invasive laser treatments, has changed all that. Without burning your skin, it tightens what’s
already there, assisting your body to produce more collagen and to regenerate tissue!
The increased collagen fills the marks left by the scars. That means new collagen will:
  • Fill in any depressed scars and deep lines
  • Break down and reorganize scar tissue
  • Stimulate new pigmentation
The results?
  • Hard or raised scars soften, flatten
  • Indented scars (like acne) fill in and appear less depressed
  • Areas lacking skin color will regain it
  • Restored nerve endings will renew the skin sensitivity in badly damaged areas
Results can generally be seen within six weeks. In six months, you can see as much as 70-80% improvement in the appearance of your scars.
Happily, cost, treatment and recovery time are all significantly less with microneedling than with more invasive procedures, but the results are just as powerful.
