Microneedling Q & A

How does microneedling work?

Microneedling involves gliding a dermaroller over your skin to create hundreds of micro-wounds with ultra-fine needles. The purpose of creating these tiny wounds is to stimulate your body’s ability to heal itself.

Once your brain receives the signal that you’re injured, cells start communicating with one another to make repairs. Cells quickly start regenerating and developing new tissues and collagen from deep within your skin tissue.

What makes microneedling with the Vivace™ RF platform so unique is that you receive the benefits of microneedling while your skin tissues are exposed to radiofrequency (RF) energy. This RF energy heats up your deep dermal layers so collagen contracts and tightens while soft tissues coagulate, for superior anti-aging benefits.

You can even add platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to your microneedling session. PRP, which comes from your own blood, is a high concentration of platelets and tissue-building growth-factor elements. Not only does PRP microneedling stimulate new collagen production, it even repairs damaged tissues and helps you look years younger.

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling services from Forever Young Medical Spa are some of the most in-demand services for both men and women, simply because they resolve so many different types of imperfections with one treatment. Your microneedling session, Vivace RF microneedling with radiofrequency treatment, or PRP facial can minimize the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Acne, injury, or surgical scars
  • Age spots, brown spots, and sun damage

While microneedling services from Forever Young Medical Spa are most commonly requested for the face, you can certainly have microneedling on other areas of your body, including your décolletage.

Is there any recovery time after microneedling?

Yes. You may experience redness, swelling, and inflammation for a couple of days after your microneedling service, depending on your specific treatment. Once any initial side effects subside, your skin starts appearing more revitalized and refreshed with each passing day.

For optimal results, the aesthetic experts at Forever Young Medical Spa recommend about 3-4 microneedling sessions, each spaced 4-6 weeks apart. It can take up to three months after your first treatment for you to experience optimal benefits because collagen production gradually increases over time.
