Are acne scars affecting your self-confidence? Do you want clearer and more youthful-looking skin? Microneedling is your solution! This revolutionary cosmetic procedure involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles to boost your body’s collagen and elastin production, leaving your skin smooth and glowing.
Microneedling is mainly used to treat various facial scars, wrinkles and large pores. After a few sessions, your skin will look clearer and rejuvenated. At LM Medical NYC, we offer microneedling for acne scar removal. We use a Dermapen specific to a doctor’s office that cannot be obtained online, at a spa or health shop.
How Microneedling Works
Once the needles penetrate the deepest layers of your skin, “micro-wounds” form. This stimulates your body’s healing processes to immediately restore minor facial wounds, creating smoother, firmer and more toned skin. This procedure has almost no downtime, and the most dramatic results will be visible four to six weeks after the treatment.

How Many Microneedling Treatments Are Required?
We recommend a series of a minimum of three treatments spaced four weeks apart for treating acne scars. However, many patients need up to five sessions to obtain optimal results.
Are You a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is one of the few beauty treatments that work for all skin types and Fitzpatrick tones. In addition, compared to other scar removal treatment options, microneedling is safe for people of all ages, even teenagers!
Anyone can significantly benefit from this treatment, whether to correct acne scars or get a revitalized, glowing look. The treatment is an excellent skin maintenance procedure and can be done annually after the initial series.
Microneedling in NYC
While acne can be controlled by diet or topical medications, the scars cannot. Deep acne scars do not usually resolve on their own. Acne scars can influence the texture, tone and overall aesthetics of the skin. Even after controlling acne, the marks left behind can last a lifetime. If you have unwanted acne scars and want to begin your microneedling treatments, contact us at LM Medical NYC or visit our clinic in Greenwich Village. We will be happy to schedule your skin consultation today!
