Science Behind Microneedling: Microneedling Before and After
So now you may be wondering how Microneedling NYC works. It is a minimally-invasive and completely safe procedure that requires no downtime. When you come in, a numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated so that you will not experience any discomfort during the procedure. Depending on what area is being treated, our professionals may use a serum containing hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, or skin lightener for better results. Then, a small device with tiny needles will be used to pierce your skin. This causes tiny punctures that your skin will work to repair. The serum that was applied will absorb into your skin and boost the production of collagen. These small wounds will force your skin to heal itself so that you can have rejuvenated and replenished skin in no time. When the procedure is complete, a serum will be applied to help your skin heal faster. Although you might notice that your face is red and peeling afterward, within a few days, you’ll already start to notice smooth and firm skin.
There are also several different types of professional Microneedling, including Microneedling RF and Microneedling with PRP, which both have different purposes and work to target different areas of the body.
While microneedling was the original technology that was developed to stimulate skin’s own collagen and elastin production it has now evolved to a better technology. Specifically, Microneedling with radiofrequency, also known as RF microneedling is an advanced and improved process that takes advantage of radiofrequency waves causing the subcutaneous tissues to selectively undergo thermogenic process and resulting in intense and exuberant collagen stimulation. Clinical studies have shown it to be 90-110% superior to regular microneedling treatment.
