Acne scars can be downright devastating. After years of attempting to clear your skin up, you've finally managed to achieve a completely blemish-free complexion. Once all of your whiteheads, blackheads, and cystic acne are gone, however, you have to deal with the ravages that these have caused. When these scars are deep and pitted, getting rid of them isn't always easy. Fortunately, microblading may be able to provide the perfect solution.
This is a relatively non-invasive procedure that is performed in-office and with very little downtime. It is designed to scrape away damaged skin cells at a significant depth so that the body can replace these with new and healthy cells. It quickly reveals the bright and unblemished skin that lies just beneath any superficial surface damage that you are experiencing.
Beyond stripping damaged outer layers away, this process also encourages your body to speed up its production of replacement skin cells. This expedites the normal healing process given that your body is diligent about repairing its protective covering. This is commonly referred to as controlled skin damage. It is designed to incite advance healing and repairs in areas that might otherwise remain unchanged.
Controlled skin damage can be particularly effective in healing scar tissue at the visage that is the result of chronic and ongoing bouts of acne. Moreover, these treatments actually help clear the pores out as well, so that additional breakouts become a lot less likely to occur in the future. It is also important to note that acne scarring is hardly the only cosmetic issue that this procedure is able to treat.
You will also recognize significant improvements in a number of age-related surface issues as well. For example, this treatment can cause significant fading of melasma, sun spots, dark spots and other forms of skin damage. It is also great for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles at the upper face, and around the mouth and chin area.
One benefit that you can achieve with this minimally invasive treatment that most other non-invasive treatments cannot supply is a significant increase in collagen production. Due to the depth at which controlled damage is caused during treatment, your body also starts producing more important, skin-supporting substances such as collagen. This can make the skin more supple and resilient overall.
New collagen also has the ability to help fill in areas that are lacking volume due to pitted acne scars. This volume loss is what gives these scars their shallow appearance. As collagen stores increase, these noticeable dips will be gradually filled in to create a smoother and more even skin texture overall.
Some people require just a single treatment to reach their cosmetic goals. Others may need several appointments that have been spaced several weeks or months apart. The goal of strategic scheduling when multiple sessions are required is to give the skin adequate time to recovery before inciting more surface-layer damages. As the skin heals and becomes healthier and stronger overall, you will find yourself becoming less reliant upon makeup and other cover-up techniques, and more confident when showing your complexion off.
