Microneeding Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment in which tiny sterile needles create hundreds of microscopic punctures in your skin to trigger your body’s innate healing process. Collagen and elastin fiber growth is a key part of this healing process. Collagen improves your skin thickness and underlying support, and that means fewer lines and wrinkles. Elastin keeps your skin tight. 

Microneedling is particularly popular for the face, but can also help with skin problems practically anywhere on your body.

How does microneedling combine with radiofrequency?

Although microneedling has great benefits on its own, radiofrequency microneedling takes it to the next level. With radiofrequency microneedling, the tiny needles are hollow rather than solid. The hollow needles allow for simultaneous skin puncture and radiofrequency energy delivery. 

Radiofrequency energy gently heats your dermal skin layer to promote additional collagen and elastin growth. It essentially speeds up the microneedling process to give you faster and more dramatic changes in your skin. 

What problems does microneedling treat?

Microneedling can treat many different types of skin issues, such as: 

  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose skin
  • Sun damage
  • Rough skin

Radiofrequency microneedling is more powerful than microneedling on its own, so it’s usually better-suited for deeper wrinkles, scars, and other more pronounced skin problems. Talk to the Dolce Aesthetics medspa team about your specific skin issues so they can personalize a microneedling treatment approach for your needs.

Does microneedling hurt?

The Dolce Aesthetics medspa team applies a topical anesthetic cream to keep you comfortable during your microneedling treatment. You might feel some heat with radiofrequency microneedling, but the heat is in short bursts that don't last long enough to cause any significant discomfort. If needed, the team can also apply a cool pack to your skin to enhance your comfort. 

How often do I need microneedling treatment?

It depends on your skin and your individual response to treatment, but you typically attain your optimal outcome with a series of microneedling sessions. Usually, you’ll have at least a month between sessions. You’ll see steady improvement in skin texture, tightness, and thickness as you synthesize new collagen and elastin.
