What Does Microneedling Do? Exploring the Benefits for Your Skin

Your skin deserves the best attention to not only enhance its appearance but also to support its health. At AMG Aesthetics in Tucson, AZ, maintaining your skin health is important to us, which is why we offer treatments like RF microneedling. This treatment can provide many benefits to help your skin look and feel healthier.

What Is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a dermatological technique that revitalizes skin by creating fine punctures across its surface. These punctures act as tiny channels, prompting the body to naturally boost collagen and elastin production. This process smooths away wrinkles and firms up the skin, which can enhance its texture and tone without invasive procedures.

What Is Morpheus8 and How Is It Different?

Morpheus8 is a type of microneedling treatment that combines the basic principles of microneedling with fractional radiofrequency energy. This combination allows Morpheus8 to affect the deeper layers of the skin and to optimize tissue remodeling. Morpheus8 can contour as well as resurface, and it can treat more significant skin concerns with longer-lasting results. 

What Does Microneedling Do to Your Skin? 

Creation of Microchannels

Microneedling begins with the use of little needles that penetrate precisely into the skin’s surface to create the microchannels that are the basis of this treatment’s benefits. These microchannels initiate a natural healing process without causing substantial damage to the epidermis. As it strategically disrupts the skin, microneedling promotes a revitalized appearance and also paves the way for improved absorption of topical products.

Contraction of Protein Fibers

The addition of radiofrequency energy provides the instant contraction of protein fibers within the skin. By making existing fibers shorter and thicker, radiofrequency energy can help your skin to feel firmer right after treatment.

Stimulation of Collagen Production

The benefits from collagen don’t end with the initial treatment. In response to microneedling, the skin begins a robust process of collagen synthesis over the next few weeks and months, which gradually reduces fine lines and scars while enhancing skin texture and reducing sagging. Over time, the increase in collagen leads to a more youthful and resilient skin structure and visibly improves its overall health and appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Microneedling for Your Skin? 

  • Reverse Certain Signs of Aging: As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and firmness, which is why we develop wrinkles and fine lines. Microneedling with RF directly addresses these concerns by encouraging the regeneration of skin cells and enhancing skin tightness.
  • Make Your Skin Look and Feel Healthier: Regular microneedling benefits include a brighter complexion and a smoother skin texture. The treatment boosts blood flow and promotes a healthy cell turnover rate, which not only enhances your skin’s natural glow but also improves its overall health.
  • Contour Your Face and Body: By targeting deeper layers of the skin, RF microneedling can refine and sculpt the contours of the face and body. This technique is effective at tightening loose skin and defining areas.
  • Heal Skin Damage: Microneedling treatments are effective at repairing various types of skin damage, including acne scars, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation. The process promotes the skin’s self-healing abilities, leading to clearer and more uniform skin.
  • Tighten Stretched or Sagging Skin: Using radiofrequency microneedling, the skin can regain much of its youthful tightness. This method excels in energizing skin’s foundational layers, encouraging them to tighten and reducing the sagging that comes with age or weight changes.

RF Microneedling Results

What to Expect From RF Microneedling

Early microneedling results after the first session may be mild to moderate improvements in skin texture and tone. Common initial responses include redness and a feeling of tightness, signs that the skin is actively responding to the treatment and repairing itself.

Long-Term Results

Often, the most significant microneedling results can be seen after several treatments with Morpheus8. The results of each treatment build on each other and collagen and elastin production, boosted by the radiofrequency energy, continues to improve over time. After your last session, you can still see improvements over several months as your body continues to produce more collagen than usual in the treatment area. You can also schedule maintenance treatments each year to keep your skin looking fresh. 

A Closer Look at Microneedling for Acne Scars

How RF Microneedling Helps With Scar Tissue

Radiofrequency microneedling targets scar tissue by encouraging the skin to regenerate at a cellular level. The treatment’s ability to heat the deeper layers of the skin can break down old scar tissue while simultaneously promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

Types of Acne Scars Treated

Microneedling with RF can treat different types of acne scars, including ice pick, boxcar, and rolling scars. The precision and depth of penetration achieved with this treatment allow for personalized approaches depending on the scar type and severity. By remodeling the skin’s surface and underlying structures, it effectively minimizes the depth and appearance of indentations and uneven textures.

Number of Sessions Needed to See Results

The number of sessions that you’ll need to see significant improvements in acne scars can vary based on the severity of the scarring and the individual’s skin response. We may recommend between three and five sessions but will always customize your plan based on your skin concerns. Each treatment will be spaced at least four to six weeks apart to give your skin time to heal and respond.

Trying the stem wave today. Have had issues with my back over 25yrs. I have actually been thru surgery in 2014. It did help me not to end up an involed, but I still suffer with pain. I'm hoping this helps with pain, so I can hopefully get off medication. I'm hoping for less downtime in my life and a more enjoyable life! 😉

Dr. B and Dr. G are constantly exploring new technologies and therapies to provide their patients with state-of-the-art procedures to address everything from aesthetic treatments to pain management. The staff is wonderful and welcoming and it’s evident that they care deeply about their patients’ wellbeing. I underwent StemWave therapy in the office and felt an immediate improvement in my shoulder and knee pain. What I love about AMG and am most impressed with is that they are constantly ahead of the curve in regenerative medicine as an alternative to traditional invasive procedures. At AMG you are treated as part of the family.
