Micro derma-rollers are a fantastic treatment for improving many types of skin types, particularly for acne scars. Importantly, micro-needling is a fraction of the cost of other treatments, such as laser resurfacing. At Rhee Plastic Surgery, we offer micro-needling as well as a full range of medical-grade skin care treatments.
Patients in a study at Chicago's Northwestern University reported that micro-needle devices improved their acne scars by 41%. The rolling devices use 1mm or 2mm needles to prick the skin, and patients said they caused little or no pain. "Needling is so easy to undergo, and potentially so inexpensive, that even a modest benefit may be sufficient to make this a worthwhile treatment for some patients with limited budgets," said Dr. Murad Alam, who led the study published in JAMA Dermatology.
