Many patients unhappy with their skin’s appearance will undoubtedly have tried topical solutions such as creams and cleansers to no avail. They may even have considered invasive cosmetic treatments such as a facelift or minimally-invasive ones like Botox®.
The good news is skin rejuvenation can now get done with microneedling. It’s a non-surgical treatment that will give your skin a new lease of life and deliver results that align with your skincare goals.
How does microneedling work? It’s a form of collagen induction therapy where precisely-spaced microneedles around 0.2mm to 2.5mm in depth on a derma roller get applied to rejuvenate the skin.
RF microneedling takes microneedling a step further with radiofrequency energy. Delivered at the precise depth in the dermis where collagen is produced, RF microneedling stimulates growth of new collagen fibers to tighten tissues and firm support for a younger complexion. The needles create a matrix of controlled injury to the skin to jumpstart the body’s healing response and create new skin cells, so your skin is improved from the inside out. Skin looks younger because it is younger.
Microneedling with PRP uses your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) to improve your skin’s condition. The powerful growth factors found in PRP recruit stem cells from your marrow to rush to the treatment area. Stem cells are “blanks” which can copy the cells of the tissues you need most. Microneedling with PRP is one of the most in-depth treatments you can have to rejuvenate and beautify your skin in a single session.
Immediately after the microneedling treatment session, most clients note how their skin now has a healthy pink glow with significantly diminished fine lines.
Patients that use makeup should avoid doing so for 12 hours following their microneedling treatment. And for the first 48 hours after their treatment, patients should also only cleanse their faces with tepid water.
Beyond that, gentle skincare products and measures should form part of a daily cleansing routine. Medical-grade skincare products like ZO® Skin Health are a must to ensure optimal results from microneedling.
