If you suffer from lines and wrinkles in your skin, acne scarring, age spots, or other skin issues, there are several ways to improve the look of your skin; one of these is with microneedling treatments. A microneedling treatment stimulates your skin’s natural healing process. It does this by using a roller or pen-like device with tiny needles to puncture the top layer of skin leaving tiny holes or “micro-injuries.” As a result of these micro-injuries, collagen release is triggered, resulting in smoother, plumper, younger-looking skin.
The Natural Aesthetic Medspa in Sykesville, MD, specializes in SkinPen® microneedling and Virtue RF Microneedling to help you reduce the appearance of unsightly skin problems and achieve younger, more vibrant, healthy-looking skin.
SkinPen® Microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, causing controlled micro-injuries that support the body’s natural healing ability. As a result, scar tissue is effectively remodeled, and collagen production is boosted without affecting the skin’s overall structure, leaving smoother, younger-looking skin.
VirtueRF microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) stimulates the body’s natural healing process and initiates collagen production within the tissue, allowing it to rejuvenate the skin non-surgically. It transmits radiofrequency energy through its microneedle tips to heat the deeper tissues when it penetrates the superficial layer of skin. Elastin and collagen fibers are formed when the skin reacts to the damage, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
PRF (Platelet-Rich-Fibrin) Add-On
We offer PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) as an add-on to SkinPen® or VirtueRF® microneedling treatments to diminish acne scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines.
THE BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING THERAPY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
In microneedling, a skin-needling device is used to treat the skin. Scar tissue is broken down, and skin cells are stimulated to regenerate, leading to younger, plumper, healthier-looking skin.
The use of microneedling is safe for all skin types and colors.
The skin of most patients brightens immediately after treatment. The skin undergoes visible changes over several days and weeks. In the months following treatment, collagen production can continue to improve.
Some patients only require one treatment to achieve optimal results. The most common type of treatment is three to four treatments, separated by between four to six weeks. Six to eight sessions, one every six weeks, are recommended for patients with deep wrinkles, photoaging, stretch marks, and acne scars.
