Many treatments can leave you with a more youthful appearance, but among them, microneedling always stands out. This quintessential all-natural glow-getter reveals tonal and textural improvements to the face, neck, décolletage and other areas of the body by using your body’s own healing process to reveal refreshed, younger-looking skin.
Here’s just a few ways the skin-renewing power of microneedling can benefit you:
1. Reveals dramatic skin improvements and stimulates new collagen growth
Did you know microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy? By gently penetrating the skin with thousands of tiny needles, microneedling creates tiny holes, or “controlled damage,” that trigger the skin’s natural healing response and promote new collagen and elastin growth. As your collagen grows, the skin reveals a wide range of improvements, including diminished acne scarring and wrinkles, more even skin tone and brightness and tighter skin around the eyelids, cheeks and neck. And the world of microneedling doesn’t stop there. Advancements in the technology include the tightening benefits of RF (radiofrequency) microneedling. At Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine, we proudly offer Secret™ RF and Vivace™ RF microneedling, which use RF energy to reveal smoother, tighter skin where you need it without downtime.
2. Can be combined with other skin-revitalizing treatments
For an intense boost of benefits, we can combine your microneedling, or RF microneedling, treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also known as a PRP Facial, or the Belle Transform PRX-T33® peel. During a PRP Facial, we will apply PRP, a concentrated portion of your own blood, to your skin during your microneedling session. The micro holes in your skin act as a perfect canvas for PRP, enabling its potent growth factors to deeply penetrate the skin for maximized age-defying benefits. If you are undergoing microneedling to erase stretch marks, we recommend applying PRX-T33 skin treatment before your session. The PRX-T33 solution helps raise lesions so that your stretch marks are easier to target and eliminate with repeated treatments.
3. Effectively treats all skin types and tones
If you’re considering a microneedling treatment, it’s very likely you’re a good candidate. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones, making it a highly sought-after treatment for rejuvenating skin and targeting common signs of aging. Plus, it’s considered quite comfortable by most. (We will apply a topical numbing cream prior to your microneedling session to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.) During your personal consultation with the Belle Marin team, we will help determine if microneedling is right for you and design a treatment plan that aligns with your exact needs and goals.
4. Delivers long-lasting results after a series of treatments
Thanks to the gradual production of new collagen and elastin, microneedling continues revealing impressive results for months following your initial treatment. To maintain your youthful glow and enhance your benefits even further, we recommend scheduling periodic treatments. All our microneedling treatments provide optimal benefits when performed as a series of three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
