There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for acne scars. Both microdermabrasion and microneedling are effective in improving skin tone and texture, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing scarring. To determine which of these treatments is best for you, book a consultation with a trusted skin expert. Waseem will evaluate your goals and recommend the right treatments to help you achieve clearer, healthier-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion and microneedling are both non-invasive treatments that target superficial imperfections. Microdermabrasion is a physical scrub of the skin, removing dead cells and dirt to refresh your complexion. It can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, blackheads, sun damage, and dull skin. It can also address mild hyperpigmentation and dry patches.
Microneedling uses a tool with needles to trigger the body’s natural healing process. The tiny needles penetrate the skin and create small marks, which promote collagen production. Unlike microdermabrasion, which only treats the skin’s surface, microneedling also helps reduce deeper wrinkles and scars.
Microneedling is more versatile than microdermabrasion, as it can be used on any area of the face and body, including the hands, scalp (scars caused by hair loss), and stretch marks. It can also be combined with chemical peels for even better results. However, it is important to seek out a qualified professional to perform this procedure, as the use of an improperly sterilized roller could cause infection. Generally, a series of sessions is required for optimal results.
