Stimulating your body’s natural healing response is one of the most effective ways to repair damaged skin. At Medical Aesthetics & Laser in The Woodlands, Texas, the team provides microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to tighten aging skin, smooth wrinkles, and minimize the appearance of sun damage. Call Medical Aesthetics & Laser today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that causes micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing response. Once this response activates, the body creates new collagen and elastin, which tightens and rejuvenates the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that builds the body’s connective tissues. It keeps your skin supple, youthful, and hydrated.
At Medical Aesthetics & Laser, the team also performs radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF microneedling delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin to enhance the treatment’s effects.
Medical Aesthetics & Lasers offers three microneedling devices at their medical spa:
The SkinPen is a device that creates controlled micro-wounds to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and pigment abnormalities.
Scarlet SRF is a gentle short-pulse radiofrequency microneedling device that tightens mild skin laxity, minimizes enlarged pores, and enhances the skin’s tone and texture.
AGNES RF is another RF microneedling device that tones and tightens the skin. Treatments work well for individuals with puffy bags underneath their eyes.
After a comprehensive skin analysis, the team can make the best recommendation for your unique skin concerns.
Microneedling is effective at treating many common signs of aging, including:
Depending on your skin concerns, the Medical Aesthetics & Laser team may recommend 2-3 treatments, spaced about 2-6 weeks apart, to help you achieve your desired results.
Once collagen production begins, you may start to see noticeable improvements in the tone and texture of your skin. Most individuals see visible results within 4-6 weeks* of treatment, though your maximum results may not appear until after your final treatment.
While traditional microneedling results last for about 3-5 months*, combining the treatment with RF energy can extend your results for up to 12-18 months*. Microneedling is also safe to combine with other nonsurgical treatments, like laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels.
