What’s in a name? Well, when it comes to Microneedling — a lot!
As the name implies, this transformative treatment relies on the use of ultrafine needles that create small punctures in the skin, but have big results. Still, don’t fear the needle! Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a needle newbie, these are the top 5 things you need to know about Microneedling.
Unlike other, more targeted treatments, Microneedling has the ability to address a whole host of skin conditions. It’s used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
Yep, all of it! That’s why this treatment tops our list of favorites.
While this might sound scary, in practice, it’s pretty straightforward and nothing to fear. By injuring the skin, Microneedling forces regrowth.
The process of regrowth increases the production of collagen, which is a fibrous protein found naturally in the skin that is responsible for skin strength and elasticity. As we age, collagen naturally dissipates, meaning that keeping new collagen coming in is vital for glowing, ageless skin.
Microneedling alone is a dynamite treatment, but adding radio frequency (RF) takes it up a notch.
The Potenza Multi-Modal RF Microneedling device ups the ante by allowing for unmatched customization. There are four different RF modes: Monopolar or bipolar at either 1 MHz or 2 MHz. (Don’t worry, we’ll explain the differences during your consultation and prior to the treatment itself.)
Essentially, the versatility means we’re able to deliver shallow and deep treatments on the same device — just tailored to treat your specific skin needs.
With the addition of Potenza to your Microneedling treatment, we’re able to treat more areas than ever before with the monopolar RF mode which delivers energy across a large area of tissue for deep heating and skin tightening anywhere on the body.
Additionally, the patented Tiger Tip™ technology features a semi insulated needle design (the first of its kind!) that allows us to expand the treatment zone and address more tissue per treatment. Translation: quicker sessions without sacrificing results.
Following your treatment, you’ll likely be a bit red and irritated: This is normal.
However, while your skin will certainly look smoother in a couple of weeks, new collagen growth takes time. Your optimized results will show up closer to eight weeks after the treatment. Patience pays, and we promise it’ll be worth it!
