Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that creates controlled injuries in the skin to activate the body’s healing process. Also called collagen induction therapy, microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production. These two proteins provide the skin with structure and support.

As you age, collagen and elastin levels decline, causing your skin’s support system to break down. The skin starts to thin, wrinkle, and sag without its structural scaffolding. Restoring these lost quantities rebuilds the skin’s support for a more youthful appearance.

At Rejive Medical Aesthetics, Stacey-Jo uses the Rejuvapen microneedling device with adjustable needle depth capabilities to customize your treatment. 

How is RF microneedling unique?

While traditional microneedling can effectively target aging concerns, combining the treatment with radiofrequency (RF) energy enhances your results. RF energy penetrates deeper layers of skin to tighten and remodel your tissues at a cellular level. 

At Rejive Medical Aesthetics, your provider can use the PiXel8 RF microneedling device to boost collagen production and accelerate healing. 

What can microneedling do for my skin?

Microneedling is versatile enough to target multiple skin concerns, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown spots
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

At Rejive Medical Aesthetics, your provider can develop a personalized plan to address your concerns and help you achieve clearer, more radiant skin.

Will my skin peel after microneedling?

Increased cell turnover may cause your skin to peel within 3-5 days of the procedure. This means your skin is repairing itself to reveal the fresh layer underneath. Your skin may also be red and tender after treatment, but these effects typically subside within a few days.

Microneedling requires almost no downtime, and most people resume their normal activities within one day.

How long until I see results from microneedling?

Some people start to see results within two weeks of microneedling, but visible improvements usually appear after one month. About 4-6 treatments are necessary to deliver lasting results, but your provider can determine how many you may benefit from during your initial consultation.

Microneedling with Rejuvapen or PiXel8 RF can revitalize your skin without surgery. To learn more, call Rejive Medical Aesthetics or schedule an appointment online.
