What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates the skin’s healing cascade and induces collagen production.
The middle layer of your skin, the dermal layer, is made up of structural proteins called collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin plump, resilient, and strong. Production of collagen and elastin decreases as you get older and contributes to the visible signs of aging.
During your microneedling treatments, your aesthetics expert at APMI Wellness Center uses a special device that creates microchannels in the surface layer of your skin. These tiny wounds heal quickly but activate your skin’s natural healing powers to regenerate and remodel your skin.
At APMI Wellness Center, the aesthetics experts use the innovative Secret RF microneedling system, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy.
Like microneedling, radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin, which provides more dramatic results.
What does microneedling treat?
APMI Wellness Center treats many common skin concerns with microneedling. With Secret RF, your provider customizes your treatment to meet your specific needs and beauty goals.
The aesthetics experts use microneedling to treat:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne scars and other small scars
Uneven skin texture and tone
What happens during microneedling?
APMI Wellness Center performs microneedling treatments at the office, which typically take no more than 20 minutes.
Your provider first applies a numbing cream to your skin. Then, they place the Secret RF handpiece on your skin and activate the device to initiate treatment. After your microneedling, the esthetician may apply a serum to your skin to ease any discomfort and redness.
There’s no downtime following your microneedling treatment, but it may take a few days for your skin to heal.
How many microneedling treatments do I need?
APMI Wellness Center recommends a series of three or four microneedling treatments to get the best results. Most patients start to notice improvements in their skin after their second session, but optimal results appear about three months after your last treatment.
Microneedling is a simple and effective cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates your look and minimizes the visible signs of aging.
