Micro-Needling and Advanced Micro-Needling RF

The aging process is something none of us can escape from! Our skin gradually begins to lose volume and the building blocks of our skin, collagen, and elastin begins to break down, loosen up and become weaker. As a result, we develop skin laxity, wrinkles, large pores, skin blemishes, and rosacea. Having flawless and gorgeous skin as we age is NOT a myth!

Here at Women’s choice Aesthetics, we are delighted to offer you state-of-the-art Microneedling  Radio-frequency, and Microneedling Collagen Induction therapy. We offer PRP therapy with any of our microneedling devices.

FAQs: 
Micro-Needling & Micro-Needling RF 

What is the difference between these treatments?

MCN Collagen Induction Therapy utilizes fine needles that create hundreds of tiny puncture wounds into the upper layer of your skin. These wounds are micro-injuries that are created to stimulate the body’s innate wound healing process. As the skin starts to heal it promotes collagen and elastin production. This new collagen fills in the wounded tissue, thereby thickening the skin removing fine lines and wrinkles and improving acne scarring.

MCN RF is an FDA approved treatment that combines two proven nonsurgical procedures that can tighten skin, improve skin tone and texture, treat acne scarring, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. As with MCN Collagen Induction Therapy, this also utilizes fine needles which penetrate the upper layer of skin as well as the deeper dermis. Radiofrequency is delivered into the tissue via the needles,  which heats the dermis and facilitates natural wound healing. A multitude of platelets and growth factors are released to help remodel collagen and elastin which tightens the skin. Over a series of treatments, skin becomes smoother and firmer and because you are forming your own collagen it will last longer. Because this treatment targets deep skin layers, the surface of the skin is not harmed, making this a safe treatment for patients of all skin colors.

 

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

PRP comes from our own blood. It is highly concentrated platelets that are obtained from spinning down our own blood. As platelets are organized in the clot, they release several different growth factors and other cytokines to promote healing. They can also attract stem cells to repair the damaged or injured tissue which aids in remodeling the skin to a healthier younger state.

The addition of PRP to any of our microneedling treatments helps accelerate healing and helps rejuvenate your skin. PRP is our own “Fountain of Youth” which when applied to any area of our body will accelerate healing, improve inflammation, produce collagen and elastin, form new blood vessels, turning back the hands of time!

 

What is microneedling used for?

To firm and tighten the skin of the face, neck, chest, loose skin above your knees, and the upper arms;
To decrease crepeness and diffuse wrinkling common on the de’collete
To minimize pore size
To reduce the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
To reduce sun damage
To improve hyperpigmentation and melasma
To improve skin tone and texture
To restore a youthful glow

 

Does microneedling hurt?

Before your treatment we will apply a topical numbing agent – BLT Benzocaine Lidocaine Tetracaine in concentrations only used in a medical office. You will numb for about 40-50 minutes. Once the numbing cream has been thoroughly washed then your treatment will begin. Our goal at Women’s Choice Aesthetics is to make this fabulous treatment as pain free as possible!

 

How long does the treatment take?

Once you are adequately numbed the treatment takes about 40-50 minutes.
Immediately after the treatment there maybe some pinpoint bleeding and swelling. Bruising may also occur but this is uncommon. You should go home after the treatment as you will not be able to apply sunblock right after treatment.

 

How many treatments will I need? How long do the results last?

The number of treatments will vary depending on what kind of results you would like to achieve and how well your skin responds to treatment. After the first treatment you will see a difference in your skin texture and tone. We recommend at LEAST three treatments, and depending on severity of wrinkles or scarring about 4-6. An assessment of your skin and progress is made at every visit. Treatments are done every 4 weeks for optimal results.

 

Can microneedling be done in conjunction with other treatments?

Absolutely! Here at Women’s Choice Aesthetics we use procedures such as dermal fillers, Dysport/Botox or laser skin resurfacing to compliment the results of your microneedling. If you develop your own collagen and elastin then you may need less filler; if your skin looks radiant and healthy then using Dysport or Botox can improve your skin’s appearance. For some patients, the results of microneedling are all they need!!

 

Who does these treatments?

Microneedling at Women’s Choice Aesthetics are ALWAYS performed by a physician. As a physicians we can go into the deeper dermal tissues allowing higher energy parameters to achieve better results. It is in the dermal tissues where your skin’s building blocks, collagen and elastin are formed. We believe that this is why our results are amazing!
