Microneedling

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural rejuvenation system to improve appearance. 

It works by creating microtears in the surface layer of your skin, which tricks your skin into thinking you have a wound. Though your skin closes the tears quickly, it activates the natural healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are the structural proteins found in the dermal layer of your skin that provide strength, support, and elasticity. Production of these proteins decreases as you get older, which contributes to the visual signs of aging (sagging, lines, and wrinkles).

Skin Med Spa is a premier medical spa and uses the most advanced tools and techniques to help you meet your beauty needs, which is why they use the Candela Exceed microneedling device.

What is the Candela Exceed microneedling device?

The Candela Exceed medical microneedling device uses the most advanced microneedling technology to help you get the best results from your microneedling treatment. 

The lightweight handheld device is capable of providing 150 needle penetrations per second, and the practitioners at Skin Med Spa adjust needle speed so that you get consistent results.

Who benefits from microneedling?

Skin Med Spa uses microneedling to address many beauty concerns. You may benefit from microneedling if you’re looking for an effective and safe solution to improve the appearance of your:

  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin texture (resurfacing)
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation

Your beauty expert at Skin Med Spa may recommend microneedling in between your laser resurfacing with ResurFX™ treatments. Taking a multimodal approach to your treatment may help you reach your beauty goals faster. 

The premier med spa may also combine your microneedling treatments with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or exosomes, which are forms of regenerative medicine that accelerate your skin’s natural repair process. 

What happens during microneedling treatments?

Your provider at Skin Med Spa creates personalized microneedling treatment plans based on your specific skin needs and concerns. With the Candela Exceed microneedling device, treatment takes less than an hour. 

Your provider may apply a numbing lotion to your skin prior to your microneedling to minimize discomfort. During your session, your provider places the handheld device on the area of your skin undergoing treatment, which quickly and efficiently penetrates the skin to get the desired results. You may experience some redness after your microneedling, but there’s no need for downtime.

For healthier and younger-looking skin, Skin Med Spa recommends four microneedling treatments over a 12-week period.
