Microneedling for acne in Wheaton is not recommended.
While Microneedling is very effective in treating acne scars, treating active acne using Microneedling could actually cause your skin to break out even further.
That’s because Microneedling works by creating tiny injuries on the skin using needles. Generally, this helps kickstart the body’s collagen production and the healing of scar tissue with healthy skin cells.
However, if we were to puncture a pimple (or even a cold sore) this could lead to the spread of the bacteria underneath. And because Microneedling is designed to open up your pores more deeply than a traditional peel, these pores are even more susceptible to dirt, bacteria, and infection.
