You might need several treatments to achieve your desired tighter, younger, and firmer skin. As it turns out, microneedling may be the only procedure you need to undergo to have flawless, glowing skin.

During microneedling, a device with several tiny, sterile needles is pushed into and out of the skin, puncturing it. The body then produces new collagen to repair these tiny holes.

At The Natural Aesthetic Medspa, we offer two different types of Microneedling. To know more about them and how they work, continue reading below.

SkinPen Microneedling

The SkinPen technique has several functional and physical advantages for our skin since it promotes compound recruitment and improves skin healing.

The SkinPen is a medical microneedling tool that stimulates collagen formation, assisting in reducing skin issues. Microneedling is great for treating melasma, surgical and acne scars, and addressing the typical indications of aging.

A disposable cartridge with many tiny needles is fitted to pen-like equipment during standard treatment. The device causes tiny, microscopic micro-injuries as it glides across the skin. These micro punctures promote tissue regeneration, progressively enhancing the skin’s look. Collagen induction therapy is the term used to describe this tissue regeneration process.

SkinPen microneedling is used to:

  • reduce aging symptoms like skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles
  • enhance the look of acne scars
  • produce a reasonable recovery time following a minimally invasive surgery
  • safely treat All skin tones
  • Effectively treat every region of the body, including the face, neck, and décolletage

How does SkinPen microneedling works?

SkinPen stimulates the skin’s natural synthesis of new collagen and elastin by forming hundreds of tiny channels in the dermis, making skin appear and feel healthier. When moving the SkinPen, the needles cycle at a rate of more than 100 stamps per second, possibly generating more than 1600 micro channels per second.

SkinPen, a medical-grade, cutting-edge microneedling equipment exclusively accessible through medical experts, can be used for microneedling. Depending on the size, quantity, and intensity of the treated locations and the patient’s preferred degree of procedure, the treatment typically lasts between 30 and an hour.

What can SkinPen microneedling do for your skin?

The SkinPen method has several functional and physical advantages for our skin since it promotes compound recruitment and improves skin healing.

First, by preserving skin suppleness and preventing the skin from becoming loose and forming these lines, the method helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Second, for people with acne scarring, SkinPen Microneedling improves uniformed healing over the scarring region, which can even out, minimize, and possibly erase the appearance of acne scars.

Weak blood vessels near the skin’s surface frequently cause rosacea. These blood vessels break, allowing blood to leak into the dermis’ outer layer, which causes rosacea. These blood vessels are strengthened by SkinPen Microneedling, which lessens the effects of rosacea when it flares up.

What to expect after your SkinPen treatment?

Before the operation, a topical numbing lotion is often administered to the treatment region for 15 minutes. Depending on the size, quantity, and severity of the areas being treated and the degree of skin damage, the operation usually takes 20 to 30 minutes. There is typically little recovery time for the patient. However, there may be some initial redness and swelling.

Virtue RF Microneedling

The SkinPen technique has several functional and physical advantages for our skin since it promotes compound recruitment and improves skin healing.

The FDA has approved Virtue RF microneedling, the most recent type of radio frequency microneedling. This minimally invasive procedure can encourage the body’s collagen creation. Beyond reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck, hands, and body, the Virtue RF offers further benefits.

Virtue RF microneedling is a skin rejuvenation procedure that stimulates collagen and elastin formation by microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) radiation. It is perfect for all skin types and may be used on the face, neck, or body. It is particularly effective in minimizing fine lines and acne scars.

How does Virtue RF microneedling works?

A set of needles on the treatment tip automatically penetrate the skin, creating microscopic wounds. Then, the tip of the gold-coated needles penetrates deep into the skin to deliver RF radiofrequency radiation.

Radiofrequency and controlled skin damage cause the skin to produce new skin cells, collagen, and elastin to cure little wounds. The micro-injuries also result in micro-channels that deliver bioactive chemicals deep beneath the skin’s surface. These compounds speed up skin healing, reduce downtime, and increase the generation of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin.

The RF energy distribution and needle penetration depth will be raised during the treatment series to continue skin regeneration. This response causes the skin to tighten and lift, leading to the following:

  • tighter skin
  • reduced pore size
  • improved skin texture and tone
  • reduction in scar visibility

What can Virtue RF microneedling do to your skin?

Virtue RF microneedling combines radiofrequency (RF) radiation with the conventional microneedling procedure and its advantages. While conventional microneedling is a great approach to increase collagen formation, RF microneedling enhances the process by penetrating the skin deeper.

Virtue RF can treat severe skin problems, including acne scars and hard, damaged skin areas. It can also break down scar tissue and allows for customized needle depths and RF energy levels for every patient.

What to expect after your treatment?

It should take at most 20 minutes to complete your Virtue RF treatment. You can resume your regular activities after your treatment is over. For a few hours, your skin can seem red. You’ll start to notice outcomes right away.

Results with collagen are frequently instantaneous and natural. With time, they get better and better. Some people may take 4 to 6 weeks before fully experiencing the advantages of microneedling. Most patients select three to four treatments over four to six weeks. We advise receiving treatment every six months to maintain outcomes.

Is Microneedling right for you?

Microneedling is a highly successful procedure when carried out in a sterile setting by a qualified, knowledgeable professional. Your skin is lifted and tightened, fine lines and wrinkles are filled in and smoothed out with little time, and the treatment is comfortable. The benefits are instantly noticeable and get better over several weeks. You can take pleasure in the final results for several months after completion.
