Microneedling is a popular cosmetic procedure that has been gaining traction in recent years. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. But what exactly does microneedling do? In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how microneedling works and what it can do for your skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The needles used at Contour Aesthetics + Wellness are gold coated and range from 0.5mm to 3.5mm in length. The needles are applied to the skin in a stamping motion, creating tiny punctures that stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This process triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which help to plump up the skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

At Contour Aesthetics + Wellness, we are proud to offer Virtue RF Microneedling. Virtue RF, Radiofrequency Microneedling, is a skin-rejuvenating treatment with virtually no pain and no social downtime. It applies energy, both LED and radiofrequency, on the needles which are stamped into the skin, therefore our treatment has no downtime because it doesn’t traumatize the top layer of skin. The Virtue RF treats skin laxity (loose skin), uneven skin tone, pigment and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne. The results from Virtue RF are impressive; patients find their skin looking brighter and tighter after treatment.

Microneedling radiofrequency allows us to penetrate the skin at a personalized specification to effectively treat your area of concerns. The robotic precision delivery and subpulse technology ensures high levels of energy are delivered at the correct depth into the skin while the sub pulse breaks up how the energy is delivered. This radiofrequency technology can better heat the deeper tissues under your skin, leading to improved collagen production and more visible results. Furthermore, as an upgrade PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) and exosomes can be applied as a booster to your treatment.

What Are The Benefits Of Microneedling?

-Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines: Microneedling can help diminish those wrinkles and lines by stimulating collagen production. This helps to fill in wrinkles and smooth out the skin’s surface for a more youthful look.

-Improves laxity: Microneedling can strengthen skin and elasticity.

-Improved texture: Microneedling can also help improve the texture of your skin by encouraging new cell growth. This helps to reduce the appearance of acne scars and other blemishes for a smoother complexion.

-Reduced pore size: The tiny punctures created by microneedling can help decrease pore size for a more even-looking complexion.

-Reduced discoloration: The increased circulation caused by microneedling can also help reduce discoloration from sun damage or age spots for a brighter complexion.

-Increased absorption: The tiny punctures created by microneedling can also help boost absorption of topical products like serums or moisturizers for better results.

Are There Any Side Effects Of Microneedling?

Although microneedling is generally safe, there are some potential side effects that you should be aware of before undergoing treatment. These include redness and swelling but are usually mild and will resolve within a few days after treatment. However, the best way to ensure positive results is to work with a qualified medical professional like the team at Contour.
