Microneedling: How it Works
Microneedling works by hijacking the skin’s latent rejuvenation potential. When the tiny needles penetrate skin cells, they cause positive stress, which sends them into repair mode. At first, the skin looks red and blotchy from the application of the radiofrequency and microneedles. But over time, it starts to appear fresher as new cells form and function more youthfully. Eventually, patients notice significant reductions in lines, wrinkles, blemishes, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. A series of treatments is needed for the best results.
Benefits of Microneedling
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we see patients experience multiple benefits from microneedling treatments. These include:
You should start seeing benefits in the first week after receiving microneedling treatment. You may notice that your skin appears plumped, thanks to the increased skin cell turnover.
Because both microneedling and RF microneedling are minimally-invasive procedures, there is minimal (if any) downtime. You’re free to continue with your regular schedule immediately following treatment.
Reduce the appearance of large pores’
Microneedling helps to reduce the appearance of pores and makes skin appear fresher and more youthful.
Deal with multiple skin complaints simultaneously
Microneedling is proven effective against scars, sun damage, stretch marks, dark spots, acne, and reduced skin elasticity. You can address all these skin issues in a single treatment.
Candidate for Microneedling
Because microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure, almost anyone can benefit from it. If you have stubborn acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, brown spots, or just want to look younger, then both RF and regular microneedling can help.
