Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

 Visage MedSpa offers two types of microneedling:

Radiofrequency microneedling

Radiofrequency microneedling uses traditional microneedling techniques to create micro-injuries in your skin to boost new collagen production and to resurface the skin The procedure also uses the power of radiofrequency energy to boost the effects of the treatment and tighten the skin.

Collagen percutaneous induction needling (P.I.N.)

Collagen P.I.N. treatments involve creating controlled wounds in your skin, which resurfaces the skin and triggers your body to release growth factors and produce new collagen and elastin, two essential proteins needed for healthy skin.

Karen can determine if radiofrequency microneedling or collagen P.I.N. is the right treatment option for you after a review of your medical history, your current skin health, and a discussion of your aesthetic goals.

What issues can microneedling address?

Collagen P.I.N .microneedling can be used on any skin type and tone to address age-related skin issues like:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars & other scars
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Irregular skin texture and tone

Radiofrequency microneedling is a deeper treatment that does all of the above plus helps to tighten skin. 

Both types of microneedling procedures are non-surgical, minimally invasive, and do not require an extended period of downtime for recovery. They also offer long-term results because they trigger the production of increased collagen to support healthy skin. You can opt for PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to be added to your treatment for faster healing and collagen stimulation.

What can I expect after microneedling?

Initially, after your microneedling procedure, you may experience redness and mild swelling in the treatment area. The redness is usually gone in 2-3 days.

After microneedling, you will be asked to put nothing on your skin for 24 hours. The tiny wounds created by the procedure are closed after 24 hours and you can start wearing makeup. You may feel dry for a week or so. Karen will recommend the proper moisturizers for you to use.

When will I see the results after microneedling?

Soon after treatment, your skin appears radiant and more vibrant. Your complexion evens out, and skin appears younger-looking and well-hydrated. As new collagen forms and healthy, new skin cells develop, your results will continue to improve in the weeks to months after treatment.

Karen may recommend a series of microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results based on the specific issues you’re treating. Then, a treatment once or twice a year will maintain your results.
