As skin ages, it can often begin to feel less firm and look less smooth than it once was. Fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, and other complexion concerns are all normal with age, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing that can be done to improve them.
Microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that we use at Rejuvené MD to help address complexion concerns. Our services in El Paso, TX can be suitable for people of all skin tones and types and can address everything from acne scarring to fine lines.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a treatment that creates tiny holes or microchannels in the skin to help boost the body’s natural collagen production and help resolve complexion concerns. Microneedling devices have a collection of fine needles that carefully and precisely puncture the skin at customizable depths. The device is designed to create microchannels in the skin without damaging the skin. Today, microneedling devices are designed with even greater precision and more options for customization.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling procedures are designed to help your body to use its natural healing capabilities in a specific area where you would like to see improvement. By creating microchannels in the skin, your body can begin recruiting fibroblasts that are sent to the area to help heal the tiny perforations in the skin.
During this process, brand-new skin can be formed along with additional collagen and elastin. This can help to make up for the decrease in collagen production that often happens as you age and can make your skin feel much firmer. The growth of new skin can also make the appearance of your skin much smoother and even textured.
How Can Microneedling Benefit Your Skin?
Microneedling for Acne Scars
Microneedling for acne scars is a common treatment. This procedure can benefit skin that has an uneven texture due to acne. The new skin that can be produced as a result of treatments can replace scarred tissue and make the skin smoother and healthier.
Microneedling for Texture Concerns
If you have other texture concerns such as skin that is rough, leathery, or no longer soft and smooth, improved texture is one of the microneedling benefits that you can gain from treatments. Microneedling can cause healthier skin to replace skin that has been damaged by the sun and it can help to reduce the appearance and rough texture of large pores.
MIcroneedling for Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles appear as a result of lost collagen in the middle layer of your skin. By investing in a microneedling procedure, you are helping your skin to produce more collagen in the areas that need it most. Since microneedling can even be performed in more delicate areas such as around the eyes and mouth, it can help to minimize these lines.
Microneedling for Coloration Concerns
As the skin of the treatment area is rejuvenated and renewed, microneedling can correct uneven coloring on your skin. If you have age spots or hyperpigmentation, it can grow fainter as your body creates new skin that is closer to your natural color.
Types of Microneedling Treatments
Microneedling With Radiofrequency Energy
At our clinic, we offer microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This type of treatment provides even more benefits than microneedling services on their own. Radiofrequency energy heats the tissue surrounding the microneedling pens. Because this heat is applied to deeper layers of your skin, it can stimulate collagen and elastin production throughout an even greater area. This treatment also helps to tighten the skin, reduce sagging, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Microneedling With PRP
Both microneedling and RF microneedling can be combined with PRP treatments. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a substance taken from your blood that contains growth factors and platelets for further skin rejuvenation. This serum is often applied to the skin after microneedling to soothe the skin and promote faster and more efficient healing.
Secret RF is the RF microneedling platform that we use at our practice. The needles on Secret RF are semi-insulated which allows heat to radiate even further throughout your skin. This device goes deeper into the skin to address concerns that can be more difficult to treat such as deep lines and wrinkles and sagging skin. It is also effective at resolving surface-level concerns on the epidermis.
Secret RF also offers more customization options than other devices. With Secret RF, we have needle depth and RF settings to cater to your individual concerns. With this device, we can treat many different areas such as the face, hands, neck, chest, and more.
How Many Sessions Will You Need to Achieve Microneedling Results?
Some patients notice the desired microneedling results after one session. However, it is more common to need more than one session. Some patients need 2 or 3 sessions to begin seeing significant results. At our practice, every case is different and we always consider your individual needs. If you have planned to have a series of treatments, we can always reevaluate along the way to add more sessions or to take them away. Microneedling can be used every year to maintain the health of your skin.
