Microneedling is an office procedure performed to stimulate your body production of collagen to tighten the skin, reduce appearance of wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.
How Microneedling Works
The microneedling device has multiple tiny medical grade needles that penetrate the skin and the deeper layer called dermis, causing micro injury to the dermis. During your body’s natural healing process, collagen production is stimulated helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve appearance of scars. Numbing cream is used on the skin prior to the procedure.
Microneedling with Radio Frequency (RF)
The microneedling with radio frequency device is used to perform microneedling and the device at the same time delivers radio frequency through the needles causing a more intense reaction in the dermis. During the healing process, a higher collagen production is stimulated resulting in more tightening and improvement of the skin.
Microneedling is safe and effective. The skin is pink in color after the procedure and can remain pink in some patients for 24-48 hours. After that the skin color returns to normal. The skin will feel rough for a few days then it will return to normal in about 1 week. It takes a few weeks to see the results as your body heals. Moisturizer and sunscreen use are essential before and after the procedure for optimal result.
