Imagine tiny needles pricking your skin all in a bid to achieve better-looking, radiant skin. Ouch? That’s how microneedling treatments work and they can be beneficial in treating a number of skin concerns such as wrinkles, large pores and acne scars, with minimal to zero pain. Despite how fearful it might sound, the trend of microneedling is picking up in popularity as more people turn to it as a way to press reset on their complexion.
How does it work?
By creating micro-injuries from those tiny needles, this process kickstarts the body’s natural repair mode and stimulate new collagen growth. As we all know, collagen is essential for that plump and glowy skin as well as play a role in reducing scars, fine lines and dullness. At the same time, it also promotes cell turnover and elastin production, which leaves the skin more radiant and slows down signs of ageing.
These tiny areas of injury also provide small channels to deliver active ingredients deeper into the skin. This allows you to reap the maximum benefits for any topical products as they are able to penetrate the skin more efficiently, thus improving skincare product absorption.
Now that you’ve learned about its wonderful benefits, keen to try? At Aesthetics Central Clinic, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments with the use of microneedling.
- Aquagold Fine Touch Treatment
This treatment utilizes a patented gold-plated microneedling system that penetrates your skin to deliver customized solutions painlessly into your skin. Doctors will begin stamping the device across treated areas and the tiny hair-like needles allow your skin to absorb the solutions more effectively. The procedure only takes 15 minutes and results can be seen with just a single administration, giving you a boost in your overall skin quality.
- Infini Fractional RF (FRF) Treatment
Microneedling can also be combined with another therapy to produce more effective results. In Infini, radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered through the microneedles and into the skin. The use of microneedling helps the heat energy to reach the dermis layer of the skin directly and reduce heat trauma to the epidermis layer. The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency stimulates cell regeneration, collagen growth and elastin production. This helps to improve skin texture and tighten scar tissues, making it effective to help get rid of acne scars. Aside from being an acne scar treatment, it also offers skin rejuvenation effects – improving sagging skin and wrinkles.
- Secret RF
If you’re suffering from cystic acne and are battling with deep, depressed scars, Secret RF is one of the latest acne scar treatments available today. It has a micro-needle fractional RF system to deliver controlled energy into various depths of the skin, up to 3.5mm deep. This makes a difference when compared to optical-based treatments, such as lasers, where there is a higher risk of skin burns and pigmentation as the energy is unable to go deep enough safely without damaging the epidermis. With Secret RF, energy is delivered through semi and non-insulated microneedles which helps kickstart collagen regeneration and elastin production. It is highly effective against fine lines, wrinkles, depressed acne scars and offers skin tightening and lifting benefits, particularly for double chin and jowls.
With so many benefits of microneedling, it can definitely transform your skin and improve its appearance! Whether you’re using it to get rid of acne scars or reduce signs of ageing, a microneedling treatment can help you achieve a more youthful, clearer complexion.
