Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is an advanced medical aesthetics treatment that relies on your body’s innate healing powers. The treatment uses a handpiece covered in thin, sterile needles to create thousands of tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin.
Your body perceives each of those channels as a microinjury and launches a swift healing response. Blood flow to the treated area improves, and new collagen cells are formed that smooth and plump your skin. Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy.
What can microneedling treat?
Microneedling can improve the appearance of many different skin conditions at once, which is why it’s such a popular treatment option.
Some of the complexion issues microneedling can treat include:
- Enlarged pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Roughly textured skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Loose or sagging skin
It may take a series of microneedling sessions to achieve optimal results. Because you can take care of more than one skin issue at a time, microneedling is a cost-effective treatment option.
What is microneedling with RF?
Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is a next-generation form of microneedling. Indigo relies on the Vivace® treatment platform for microneedling with RF. This platform uses gold-tipped treatment needles and an advanced software algorithm to customize each session.
As the treatment needles penetrate your skin, the platform delivers radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers. That energy creates heat that stimulates new collagen production, further enhancing your microneedling results. The Vivace platform ensures that you always receive the precise amount of energy needed, no more, no less.
What happens during microneedling sessions?
A numbing cream reduces sensations to the treatment area. Depending upon the area treated, the entire process can take less than 30 minutes and is described as being comfortable and often painless.
You might notice a sensation of pressure as the treatment device moves across your hairline, forehead, or cheekbones. Once the treatment is complete, a hydrating mask and soothing serum pave the way for the healing process to begin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can also be incorporated into your microneedling treatment. This option can boost your healing response, leading to more collagen production and better outcomes.
