About Microneedling Procedures
Microneedling is one of the most exciting skin-rejuvenating procedures available at Capital Laser & Skin Care. The treatment involves passing a dermaroller studded with hundreds of micro-needles over a target area of skin – typically the face. The stimulation shocks the skin into action and causes it to send out signals to the rest of the body to come and heal it. Healing factors arrive in the bloodstream which makes dermal cells express themselves more youthfully. Once healed, your complexion looks healthier and younger.
RF microneedling combines regular microneedling with radiofrequency. Dr. Tanzi, Dr. Peters, and Dr. Shah and their team deliver electromagnetic energy to the lower layers of the skin, heating them up. The process encourages further collagen production from beneath compared to regular microneedling alone.
After microneedling, your skin may look pink and could be moderately sore to the touch, comparable to a sunburn. How long it takes to repair depends on the depth of the needles and the number of passes the team at Capital Laser & Skin Care performs.
Patients should not use retinoids or vitamin C for the first 48 hours, and should only add these products back into their regimes slowly in the days after. Furthermore, you should avoid any harsh chemicals, exfoliants, or scented products.
