Microneedling Q & A
What is microneedling?
Regular microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a beauty treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural healing powers to improve tone, texture, and appearance.
During your regular microneedling session, Sarah uses a special tool that creates microtears in the surface layer of your skin. These microtears simulate a wound and activate your skin’s natural healing cascade.
Though the tiny wounds heal quickly, they trigger the production of new skin cells and collagen. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s strength and resilience. Production of this supportive protein decreases with age and is one of the main contributors to facial aging.
What can microneedling help with?
Microneedling helps address many bothersome skin and beauty concerns. At Aesthetica Houston Med Spa, Sarah uses regular microneedling to:
- Smooth out fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten loose skin
- Improve tone and texture
- Shrink large pores
- Lighten brown spots and pigmentation
Sarah also uses the beauty treatment for acne scar removal and reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
What is radiofrequency microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is one of the many innovative treatments offered at Aesthetica Houston Med Spa. It combines radiofrequency energy with microneedling to enhance the end results of your beauty treatment.
During radiofrequency microneedling, Sarah uses a special tool that delivers radiofrequency energy through fine needles into the deep layers of your skin. Like regular microneedling, the needles create tiny tears in your skin to activate the healing process.
The radiofrequency energy stimulates healing and collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin to significantly improve the tone, texture, and quality of your skin.
What is microneedling with PRP?
PRP is a form of regenerative medicine that uses the power of your blood’s platelets to support your skin’s natural healing process.
When combined with microneedling, PRP rejuvenates your skin and reinvigorates cellular turnover. The platelets in the PRP rev up collagen and elastin production, which helps repair and restore your skin.
During your microneedling with PRP session, Sarah first draws a sample of blood from your arm to create the PRP. Then, she uses the microneedling tool to create tiny wounds and coat your skin with the PRP to enhance the healing process.
