Would you also like to get rid of your acne scars in a safe, quick, painless and definitive way? Very understandable! With SkinPen microneedling, we use a technique that we use to stimulate collagen production in your skin. This collagen boost causes acne scars to plump up and disappear. The SkinPen method is FDA-approved and absolutely safe for your skin. So there is finally a solution to acne scars you can’t get rid of.

What is acne?

Almost everyone gets pimples during puberty. Some suffer more or longer than others. Why we get them is not exactly known. Hormone changes during puberty cause sebaceous glands in the skin to produce more sebum and the surface layer of the skin to thicken. In addition, glands can become clogged by too much sebum and skin flakes, and blackheads can develop, which then become inflamed.

How do acne scars form?

Acne scars result from a pimple (inflammatory reaction deeper in the skin). Deep holes in the skin, pits and irregularities in the skin are forms of acne scarring.

Some pigment may also be left behind, creating a red, purple or brown coloured spot. With any luck, this skin discolouration will heal on its own, although it may then take up to three years.

Acne scars are generally considered very cosmetically distracting. Many people with (severe) acne scars feel ashamed of it and sometimes develop psychosocial problems. Studies show that at least one in three adults who suffer from it seek treatment to get rid of their acne scars.

What to do against acne scars?

Acne scars consist largely of connective tissue (collagen). Fortunately, there are several ways to treat and reduce these scars. Besides the cosmetically disturbing effect, it can also bring psychosocial symptoms. For instance, depression can be significantly reduced with acne scar treatment.

Acne scars can be treated with various cosmetic procedures, such as peeling, laser treatment or microneedling. In general, we swear by the SkinPen microneedling treatment because it is often the least invasive. There is no surgery, anaesthesia or recovery time and you do not have to stop smoking or stop taking aspirin temporarily, for example. In addition, SkinPen is the first ever FDA-approved microneedling treatment.

Acne scars treatment

With a SkinPen treatment against acne scars, 1,600 microchannels (wounds) per second are created in the skin, triggering the skin’s own wound healing. This boosts your collagen (type 3) production, so to speak. This is the type of collagen needed to create and organise effective tissue structures at the right rate. This makes acne scars disappear.

During this process, the type 3 collagen is converted to type 1 collagen. Type 1 collagen provides the desired and long-lasting results. Long-term relief from acne scars, in other words!

Acne scar treatment experiences

The experiences do not lie: treating acne scars with the SkinPen gives lasting results. With the SkinPen, we are able to remove certain indications in selective areas, as well as improve overall skin condition. By microneedling the skin, collagen production is stimulated and the skin naturally takes care of the improvements. An incredibly safe and effective way to get rid of pigmentation spots.
