What Does Microneedling Do?

Microneedling Newport Beach

Microneedling is one of those treatments that doesn’t only rejuvenate your skin through healing; It’s a gateway to better skin by making your creams and serums work better after a microneedling session. At ZENA Medical, we back our treatments with research, so you know just what to put on your skin after microneedling to improve your skin’s texture, tone, firmness, and suppleness.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling creates channels in your skin at varying depths to stimulate the production of collagen, renewal of damaged or dull skin cells, and healing response that reboots your complexion at its surface and below. The depth at which the needles penetrate the skin is very important to the results you can achieve. Tiny needles create these micro-injuries, paving the way for your creams and serums to infuse more productively and renew your skin from the inside out. 

Hyaluronic acid serums can restore hydration while Vitamin C can brighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Your favorite products get a boost in effectiveness, reminding you why you fell in love with them in the first place. With 4-6 microneedling treatments, your complexion is smoother, your tone is more even, and its elasticity is more youthful and firm, leaving you looking young and beautiful. 

Microneedling with Genius RF adds radiofrequency energy to the microneedles. This treatment penetrates deeper into the dermis, where fibroblasts—collagen’s creators—live. RF energy at this precision depth urges robust growth of collagen fibers. Because the needles bypass the top layer before the RF energy is delivered, the risk of hyperpigmentation is very low. Your pores are minimized, scars are softened and new skin cells replace scarred ones, reducing their appearance. Texture and tone are evened out and overall, your skin tightens for a more youthful appearance. Genius RF added to microneedling only requires 2-3 sessions to dramatically improve your skin. With the deeper channels, your facial regimen can go deeper than ever before. 

Microneedling with PRP takes serum infusion to a whole new level by adding Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is extracted from your own blood supply, and it contains growth factors that can’t be found elsewhere. PRP brings your body’s stem cells into play. Stem cells are fundamentally “blanks” which can evolve into whatever cells your skin most needs. Renew your skin’s firmness, tightness, and youth with new collagen, elastin, and skin cells to improve tone, texture, and any number of other skin conditions. Few creams or serums can compete with that.

Why Microneedling Depths Matter

Having your microneedling with Dr. Zenovia and the ZENA Medical team is a wise decision because of the difference in depth they can achieve compared to a typical spa’s aesthetician. Nurse practitioners and physicians are licensed to perform a much deeper microneedling treatment, which leads to more dramatic results since the healing response is greater due to more layers of skin being affected. The deeper the micro-channels, the greater the depth your creams and serums can infuse, so more area of your skin is positively enhanced by your products’ active ingredients.

What Results Can I Expect?

In the immediate hours and days following your first microneedling treatment, your skin is luminous from the treatment. It’s often the first thing many patients notice, the glow to their skin that wasn’t there prior to their appointment. You’ll also note your skin improves after your normal skin care routine, because your products reach deeper into your skin for better coverage. With multiple treatments, your skin tightens and firms up due to more collagen growth. 

Enhance your results to the fullest extent with Dr. Zenovia Hormonal Skin Care. This is a science-backed line of skin care products designed by one of the industry leaders in dermatology. Revitalize your skin through its connection to natural hormones with therapies that achieve optimal skin health.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Almost anyone can have microneedling treatments without concern of hyperpigmentation patches or worries common to other skin resurfacing treatments. Microneedling candidates are typically looking to improve one or more of the following:

  • Overall skin texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin complexion and radiance
