Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has grown in popularity in recent years. This is partly due to the fact that is a proven safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns. If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate and repair the skin, microneedling may be the right option for you.

The Benefits of Microneedling
All of the benefits from microneedling are possible due to the production of collagen and elastin. This production is stimulated by the device, which also causes the skin to thicken, which reduces an aged appearance. Scars are another type of blemish that can be treated with microneedling. A few days after treatment your skin will be smoother and more vibrant, and issues such as scars, large pores, and fine lines and wrinkles will be less noticeable.
Some patients are able to see smoother, blemish-free skin a few weeks after their first treatment. Other patients may need multiple treatments in order to see ideal results. We recommend undergoing two or three treatments if you are dealing with tone and texture problems.
Each treatment session will be customized to fit your needs, and our team is dedicated to helping you reach your goals. We will walk you through each step of the process so you know exactly what to expect. Most patients can visit us for a microneedling treatment every four to six weeks, and we will let you know your perfect treatment session plan at your consultation.
Texture irregularities is just one of the blemishes that can be treated with microneedling. Tone issues such as melasma can also be lessened after a session with us. The microneedling device actually breaks up the melanin in the skin, which allows discoloration to be absorbed and disappear.
Who is a Candidate?
This treatment is superficial enough that virtually all skin tones and types can benefit from it. However, you are not a good candidate for treatment if you:
- Have used certain medications in the past three months
- Have undergone radiation skin treatment in the past year
- Have active eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis
- Are pregnant
- Develop keloid or hypertrophic scars
- Have a cystic acne breakout
Topicals and Serums
In order to improve the results of microneedling, we can add serums during the treatment. The micro-channels that are created by the device enhance product absorption, which greatly increases the benefits of any serum. Here at RNA Medical Aesthetics, you can choose between PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) for ultimate facial rejuvenation.
Above are just a few of the benefits that you can receive with a microneedling treatment. Feel free to learn more about this non-surgical skin rejuvenation method by visiting RNA Medical Aesthetics. We are conveniently located in Johnson City, TN. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
