How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling uses small needles to systematically puncture the skin. At Keys Med Spa, we use a special RF microneedling device for treatments. This device delivers RF energy into the skin, improving the results you would experience with microneedling alone. By creating controlled skin damage, microneedling induces a healing response within the skin. Cells begin to create more collagen and elastin, two compounds that are essential for taut, youthful skin.

Our patients love microneedling treatments for its many significant benefits, including:

No Downtime

If you’re short on vacation time, you still deserve beautiful skin. Microneedling is an ideal option for patients that need to minimize downtime while maximizing skin improvement. Most patients will not need to miss work after their treatment.

Side effects are very minimal for most patients. Minor tenderness is common. Patients may also experience redness, swelling, and skin irritation for a few days after treatment.

Addresses a Variety of Skin Concerns

From wrinkles to acne scars, microneedling can address many skin concerns.

Microneedling can effectively treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone

Pairs Well with Other Treatments

Slowing and reversing the aging process without surgery often requires a multi-faceted approach. Microneedling pairs well with other cosmetic treatments, allowing us to target aging using multiple effective options.

Some of our favorite pairings for microneedling are cosmetic injectables. These treatments offer dramatic rejuvenation with a quick, injectable treatment. Could one of these injectables enhance your microneedling results?

  • Botox – Botox is a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles that cause facial expression lines and wrinkles. This treatment is ideal for smoothing crow’s feet, lines between the brows, and forehead creases.
  • Dermal Fillers – Fill in hollows and wrinkles with injectable dermal fillers. This treatment restores facial volume and can recreate youthful contours.
  • Kybella – Get rid of your double chin with Kybella. This injectable treatment uses deoxycholic acid to melt away fat cells under the chin, dramatically improving the contours of your profile and fading the appearance of jowls and a double chin.
