Microneedling is a unique skin treatment that can address all of these concerns and more. This targeted treatment can help boost your collagen and elastin production, which decline as you age and are key factors in creating glowing skin, especially when performed with the highly advanced Potenza microneedling system.

What Is Microneedling?

The Potenza microneedling system offers a unique skin care treatment that can help reduce many common skin concerns. During the treatment, tiny needles are used to lightly prick the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing response. When the skin is injured, it sends signals to the body to begin the healing process and repair the damage that has been done.

This response stimulates collagen and elastin production, which are essential for skin health and lead to younger, more rejuvenated skin. Radiofrequency can also be used to further enhance the results of microneedling. Radiofrequency is used to gently heat the layers of skin to help boost collagen production. The Potenza microneedling system is safe for all skin types and tones and leaves the surrounding skin undamaged.

Who Is a Candidate for Microneedling?

Most patients are candidates for microneedling as it can address a number of common skin concerns. To determine if you are a candidate for microneedling, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee. During your consultation, he will examine your skin and discuss your goals for the treatment. He can then make recommendations on how to improve your skin by providing a customized treatment plan and discussing the number of microneedling treatments you may require. 

How Microneedling Is Performed

Before the treatment begins, a numbing cream will be applied to ensure you remain comfortable. Once this takes effect, the microneedling can begin. Microneedling is performed using a small device that has thin needles across it. This is rolled over the targeted areas and can be performed in less than 30 minutes. At the same time, the divide uses a radiofrequency tip to deliver waves into the layers of the skin. The needles may cause pinprick bleeding, which quickly resolves. Once the session is complete, serum or cream may be applied to the skin.

Microneedling Recovery and Results

After your treatment, you may notice some redness which will resolve on its own within a few days. You can resume most normal activities but may be asked to avoid the sun for the first few days. Once the treatment has been completed, the natural healing process will begin to stimulate collagen production and cell turnover.

Some results may be visible the following week after treatment, while others may take longer to appear. Collagen can help smooth and fill in wrinkles over time. Many patients will require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
