Micro-needling and RF Micro-needling
What Is Microneedling?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a treatment that uses hair-thin, adjustable needles to create tiny injuries in the skin, which forces a healing response from the body. The body responds to these injuries, which are invisible to the naked eye, with an immune reaction that cleanses and disinfects the treatment area in the short term and, in the long term, significantly increases collagen production to heal and repair the skin. There are two types of microneedling: the traditional version and RF microneedling. Each can radically transform the skin, eliminate the most common imperfections, delay and reverse the aging process, and improve overall skin health.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
Patients who want better skin but don’t want to undergo an invasive treatment can benefit from a microneedling treatment plan. Both versions of this treatment can transform the skin without social downtime. Other treatment benefits include the following:
Treatments improve skin absorbency, which makes topical products work better
Treatments are completely customizable and combinable
There’s no social downtime after a treatment
We ensure that patients maintain optimal comfort during their sessions
Repeat treatments can stimulate collagen production long-term
Results are visible within the first few weeks of treatment
We offer two types of treatments to meet our patients’ needs
We offer traditional microneedling with the SkinPen®. This device is known for its effectiveness, efficiency, and safety. It delivers a sterile and uniform treatment, as the device is equipped with single-use needle cartridges that create microchannels at 1600 per second. Before the treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream to the skin to ensure patients don’t feel the needles as they perforate the skin’s surface. Then, we use the device to create thousands of microchannels all across the treatment area. We can apply topical anti-aging serums during the treatment to take advantage of the skin’s increased absorbency and enhance the results.
What It Treats
SkinPen® can treat lines and wrinkles on the face and neck and is also an effective option for those with acne scars. It improves skin elasticity, shrinks the pores, diminishes stretch marks, treats age spots, lightens discoloration, and increases natural collagen and elastin production.
Secret™ RF Microneedling
Secret RF microneedling is a treatment that uses a device equipped with microneedles that deliver radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin. We use the Secret™ RF device to perform our RF microneedling treatments. The Secret™ RF device is customizable, and not only can we adjust the needle depth, but we can also adjust the amount of radiofrequency energy we deliver into the skin to maximize collagen production. We can apply a topical anti-aging serum during the treatment to maximize the results and take advantage of the skin’s increased absorption rate, just like our SkinPen® treatments. Before we begin a Secret™ RF treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. Within approximately 30 minutes, your skin will become numb, and we can begin the treatment process.
What It Treats
Secret™ RF treatments can improve the appearance of acne scars and general scars, sun damage, stretch marks, and the most common signs of aging. It improves skin quality, enhances skin texture, and improves the overall appearance of the skin. It can also shrink large pores and reverse sun damage.
