Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a medical aesthetic treatment that relies on your body’s innate healing abilities. It’s an incredibly popular treatment because it allows you to treat multiple skin conditions simultaneously. Compared to using several individual treatments to address various issues, microneedling delivers an outstanding value. 

The process works by using a handheld treatment device covered in tiny, sterile needles to create small punctures across the surface of your skin. Your body perceives these tiny microchannels as an injury and rushes to launch a healing response. 

New collagen cells are produced, which plumps and smooths your skin. The team at Southern Skin and Beauty Bar uses the Vivace® microneedling treatment platform, which delivers impressive results.

What kinds of conditions can microneedling treat?

Microneedling is among the most versatile medical aesthetic treatment options. Some of the common skin conditions that microneedling can treat include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Poor elasticity
  • Hyperpigmentation

Your provider will usually perform microneedling as a facial treatment, but this procedure can also improve the appearance of scarring, stretch marks, and other skin issues on various areas of your body. 

There are various products available online and in stores that promise to deliver similar results. In reality, none of these devices can match the power of professional microneedling platforms. It’s also possible to damage your skin by trying to complete microneedling at home. 

How does radiofrequency energy enhance microneedling?

Incorporating radiofrequency energy into microneedling can take your results even further. Radiofrequency energy creates heat in the deeper layers of your tissue, which prompts an immune reaction similar to the microneedling treatment needles. 

Combining both of these powerful treatments can boost your results. It often takes multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, but you’ll likely begin to see improvements shortly after your initial visit.
