What is Microneedling?
Interested in correcting multiple skin issues with one treatment? Do you want a truly radiant glow? You’re not alone! Millions of people turn to microneedling for skin rejuvenation.
Why Choose Microneedling?
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, both of which are needed for healthy skin. Microneedling effectively treats:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scarring (due to acne or surgery)
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
- And many other skin concerns, such as reducing the appearance of stretch marks
It also allows your skincare products to work more efficiently.
How is RF Microeneedling different from Microneedling?
RF Microneedling combines both radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling to more
effectively treat the skin. By using radiofrequency heat, RF microneedling
increases collagen and elastin production even more to tackle those fine linnes
and wrinkles and scarring.
How Do I Prepare for Microneedling?
Follow instructions provided by your microneedling specialist carefully. You might be asked to avoid certain medications, as well as certain skincare products. You should also be sure to wear sunscreen or avoid the sun for at least 24 hours.
What Should I Expect During Microneedling?
Microneedling is considered minimally invasive. During treatment, controlled injuries are made to your skin using microneedles. Your skin may become red and tight and feel like you’ve been sunburned.
When Will I See Microneedling Results?
You’ll start to see an improvement in your skin within two to four weeks after your microneedling treatment. You can expect to see continued improvement for up to six months.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
As long as you are healthy and your skin is in good condition, you should be eligible for microneedling. You may be advised to try other treatment options if you have active acne, open wounds, eczema, psoriasis, or a history of scarring.
