Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure which uses very fine needles to puncture the epidermis. These needle micropunctures alone have proven very beneficial to the skin by increasing blood flow, collagen production, and even wound healing. Microneedling can be successfully used to treat acnea, scars, pigmentation of the face, and improve fine wrinkles and tighten the skin.
IT JUST GOT BETTER... now introducing Radiofrequency Microneedling! Radiofrequency energy can be used in combination with microneedling, essentially heating up the needles to a precise temperature as they pierce the skin layers. As energy is delivered to skin layers, the effects of microneedling are amplified. Results of studies have shown an increase in collagen and fibrillin, some of the components of the skin that give fullness and reduce wrinkles. Further studies with this cutting-edge technology show significant improvement in wrinkles of the lower face and neck, as well as wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. RF Microneedling has become an important nonsurgical option for the treatment of skin laxity and for facial rejuvenation, in addition to treatment of acne and scars.
Contact our office to learn more about this minimally invasive option to surgery which typically has in most cases 24-48 hours until full recovery and very minimal discomfort. Dr. Wenzel performs this procedure in office with a trained esthetician on staff who assists.
