Millions of Americans develop new issues with acne each day. Whether you have chronic acne or the occasional breakout, we understand it’s not easy. Acne scars also deeply impact your confidence levels and self-esteem. At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, our professionals are pleased to offer the SkinPen, an FDA-cleared microneedling device that improves a wide range of skin concerns.

Want to prevent breakouts and fade acne scars naturally? Call one of our skin rejuvenation specialists in Highland Park or University Park in Texas for a comprehensive SkinPen assessment. We are highly trained in using microneedling for acne scars and can explain the many advantages in person.

Introducing the SkinPen

Acne is a common but frustrating problem for many men and women. Depending on the severity of your acne, you could be using medications to treat existing breakouts or fade acne scars. The SkinPen is a cutting-edge solution that reduces your need for ointments, creams, and other products.

The SkinPen is a microneedling tool that creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin. This encourages natural collagen and elastin production, essential proteins that work to heal damaged tissue. The SkinPen is simple and quite effective, as long as it is performed by an experienced specialist. Our team at The Wellness Institute of Dallas knows how to use the SkinPen to achieve the clearer and refreshed results you want.

How microneedling works for acne

There are many reasons why SkinPen is a great solution for acne. First, the microneedling technique encourages new cell turnover, so dead or damaged skin cells are replaced by healthy cells. The SkinPen also shrinks enlarged pores, so it’s more difficult for oil and debris to build up again.

Many of our patients also ask about microneedling for acne scars. The SkinPen prompts collagen and elastin to make your skin smoother and softer, and any discoloration from scars also fades away over time.

During your skin rejuvenation consultation in Highland Park or University Park, we encourage you to speak up if you have any conditions, such as eczema, that may interfere with your treatment. This information allows us to produce the safest and most effective results possible.

What to expect during treatment

No harsh chemicals or toxins are used during microneedling, so the SkinPen doesn’t cause allergic reactions or serious side effects. We can use a topical cream to make your microneedling session more tolerable and comfortable. Once the micro-injuries have been created, you may feel some mild redness and swelling. This is normal and should dissipate over the next day or so.

The Wellness Institute of Dallas will create a custom SkinPen treatment plan depending on your issues with acne. People with more severe problems may require more sessions than those with mild to moderate acne. The great news is that once the collagen and elastin begin to take effect, you should notice smoother skin free from blemishes and scars.

Microneedling for acne scars and more

The SkinPen can be used for so many more reasons than to fade acne scars. It can safely treat minor signs of aging, rough skin texture, discoloration, and more.
