Microneedling at Vitahl Medical Aesthetics

The quest for ageless, glowing skin is an evergreen one.

Factors such as age, sun damage, and environmental pollutants gradually take their toll, manifesting as wrinkles, scars, and a loss of vitality. Microneedling, a revolutionary procedure, promises to reverse some of these adverse effects, giving you a refreshed complexion and revitalized skin.

Why do we need Microneedling?

Microneeeding is a minimally invasive way to rejuvenate the skin and has become a popular treatment for patients looking to improve their appearance. The secret lies in collagen. Think of collagen as the skin's scaffolding—it keeps our skin firm and youthful in our early years. As we age, our bodies produce less of this vital protein, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging.

Microneedling works by making tiny punctures in the skin. These minor "injuries" kickstart the body's natural healing process, boosting collagen production and many other healing factors in the process. So, instead of just masking aging signs, microneedling tackles the root cause, prompting the skin to renew itself from within.

How does Microneedling work?

Microneedling, or "collagen induction therapy," involves using minuscule needles that create precise micro-injuries to the skin. This controlled damage spurs the body's natural response to produce more collagen, the primary protein that maintains our skin's elasticity and facilitates its repair.

Radio Frequency Microneedling combines microneeding with RF (Radio Frequency) energy, to reach new dimensions.  The RF energy is delivered through the tiny needles to heat the deeper layers of skin, promoting tighter and smoother skin. This dual action of microneedling, alongside RF, not only enhances collagen production but also tightens underlying skin structures, leading to comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

What does Microneedling treat?

Microneedling and Radio Frequency Microneedling are versatile procedures that addresses a multitude of skin concerns. From facial blemishes to body scars, the restorative properties hold great promise.

  • Acne Scars: Microneedling can reduce the appearance of deep acne scars by promoting new collagen formation.

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: By boosting collagen and elastin production, microneedling can diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Stretch Marks: While more challenging to treat than other skin issues, Radio Frequency microneedling can reduce the appearance of stretch marks, especially when combined with other therapies.

  • Large Pores: The treatment can tighten the skin and reduce the appearance size of enlarged pores.

  • Reduced Skin Elasticity: By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can improve the skin's elasticity.

  • Uneven Skin Tone: By promoting skin regeneration, microneedling can even out areas of uneven pigmentation.

  • Scars: Beyond just acne scars, microneedling can also improve the appearance of scars caused by injuries or surgeries.

  • Hair Loss: When used with appropriate serums or medications, microneedling can stimulate hair growth for conditions like alopecia.

  • Sun Damage: The procedure can aid in reversing the texture and discoloration associated with sun damage.

  • Texture Improvement: For those looking to enhance their skin's surface and achieve a more radiant appearance, microneedling offers an effective solution.

How to prepare for Microneedling

Embarking on a microneedling journey requires some preparatory steps. Protect your skin with a broad-spectrum SPF and minimize direct sun exposure. A week before the procedure, avoiding direct sun exposure is recommended, however, encountering sun does not mean a treatment cannot be performed. We will assess the skin prior to treatment and may adjust treatment settings if needed. It is ok to remain on all skincare products, including Retinols, as long as the skin is not overly irritated from them. And on the day of the procedure, it's best to present a canvas free of makeup. This careful preparation ensures the treatment is both practical and devoid of complications.

What to expect during your Microneedling procedure

The transformative journey towards radiant skin comprises several steps. Initially, a clinician will meticulously cleanse your skin to remove impurities. A topical anesthetic is then applied to ensure you're comfortable throughout. With the stage set, the microneedling device, be it SkinPen or SecretRF, is meticulously maneuvered across the targeted areas. Following the procedure, a soothing serum may be applied to calm and hydrate the skin, sealing the benefits.

What to expect from Microneedling results

While initial results, such as a brighter complexion, manifest within a week, the real magic unfolds over the next 3 to 6 months. As collagen production gets a boost, unwanted texture and wrinkles fade, replaced by smooth, vibrant skin. However, results can vary based on individual skin types, the severity of concerns, and the specific technology used. Multiple sessions enhance skin texture and tone, providing a more lasting transformation.
