Microneedling is a popular and effective treatment for improving the texture and appearance of the skin. It utilizes tiny needles to create microchannels in tissue, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin – two essential proteins that help our skin maintain its youthful look.
The procedure is minimally-invasive, and patients can typically resume their normal activities immediately afterward. What’s more, one of the key benefits of microneedling is that it is safe for all skin types and tones. So if you’re looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and scars, as well as address uneven texture and tone, microneedling may be the right choice for you.

Microneedling is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It involves the use of a device containing tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin at a uniform depth, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response and promotes collagen and elastin production.

What Can Microneedling Treat?
- Acne Scars
- Fine Lines
- Large Pores
- Loose Skin
- Stretch Marks
- Surgical Scars
- Uneven Skin Tone
More Collagen, More Youthful Skin
Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. Collagen is a vital element of the extracellular matrix, the scaffold system that maintains the skin’s structure. (2) The tiny micro-injuries caused by the treatment trigger the body’s natural healing response which enables patients to see real differences in their skin’s texture and tone a matter of weeks after treatment.
Are you tired of having dull, lifeless skin that lacks vibrancy and elasticity? Do you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars? If yes, then microneedling may be the right treatment for you.
Benefits of Microneedling
- Improved Texture, Minimized Scarring
Microneedling helps to improve the texture of your skin by reducing the appearance of acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and other imperfections.
- Reduced Fine Lines & Wrinkles
By stimulating collagen production, microneedling can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
- Safe and Effective
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment that can be customized to meet the unique needs of each patient, making it a great option for individuals with all skin types.
- Increased Collagen Production
Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps to improve its texture, tone, and elasticity.
- Minimal Downtime
Unlike more invasive procedures, such as laser resurfacing or chemical peels, microneedling requires little to no downtime, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after the treatment.
The SkinPen is an aesthetic device that automates the microneedling process. It’s the only microneedling device that’s FDA-approved, and only available in physician-led clinics. The depth of the needles can be controlled so that treatments can be tailored to individual patients’ needs. And, because the handpiece controls the insertion and retraction of the disposable needles, patients can count on clean, precise treatments, stimulating collagen production, and tightening skin. This can help reduce the appearance of sagging jowls, neck bands, and other signs of aging. The treatment is minimally invasive and requires little-to-no downtime.
SkinPen has evolved from the design of the dermal roller which accomplishes the same objective, however, the needles are on a large rolling barrel attached to a self-operated handle, much like a small paint roller. Rollers have more room for user error since there is no guarantee of consistency since it is manually handled, whereas SkinPen’s vertical motions are automated and deliver even motions.
Dermal rolling can cause tear-like wounds as it is dragged along the face. This motion plus the considerable amount of needles on the barrel makes dermal rolling a very painful treatment. With SkinPen, small groups of needles are used in vertical motions on one independent section at a time, which makes it more comfortable. SkinPen allows your microneedling specialist to precisely cover the entirety of the treatment area flawlessly. With a treatment where fluctuation of just tenths of a millimeter makes a large difference, precision is key. SkinPen ensures this precision, while dermal rolling leaves the outcome of the treatment’s accuracy in the hands of the operator. SkinPen uses single-use sterile needles that are replaced for each patient, but a dermal roller needs to be sanitized after each use since the barrel is meant to be used on numerous patients. Another appeal of SkinPen over dermal rolling is the absence of downtime needed; there is no physical need to steer away from your normal day-to-day activities after SkinPen.

Lutronic Genius is an advanced microneedling device that also uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. It can be used to address a range of concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The treatment is safe, effective, and requires little to no downtime. This combination system can be used on various areas of the face and body, including the neck, chest, arms, abdomen, and thighs.
How Does RF Help Skin?
RF is a form of electromagnetic energy that produces a thermal effect when applied to the skin. (3) The tiny needles of the Lutronic Genius device emit controlled pulses of radiofrequency energy so that it’s delivered in the deep layers of skin, which is where it counts! The heat generated causes existing collagen to contract, tightening skin and promoting the remodeling of the underlying skin layers. RF microneedling is an extremely popular minimally invasive anti-aging treatment, and the results speak for themselves.

The results of microneedling are gradual and will continue to improve over time as collagen production increases. Many patients notice an improvement in their skin’s texture and tone within the first week or two after treatment. However, optimal results typically occur after a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart. Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation, leading to smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.
