Microneedling Q&A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is an aesthetics treatment available at Artem Med Spa that uses tiny needles, and sometimes radiofrequency energy, to make tiny tears in treated tissues. It stimulates increased collagen and elastin production without invasive procedures or downtime. 

What is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling?

(RF) microneedling uses painless radio waves in addition to traditional microneedling to further stimulate new cell growth and promote skin restoration. RF waves gently heat targeted tissues for patients seeking more dramatic results with less healing time. Healing is faster using RF microneedling compared to traditional microneedling because of the added heat energy.

Artem Med Spa uses innovative Potenza technology, a cutting-edge RF microneedling machine that combines bipolar with monopolar radiofrequency energies, and Scarlet RF, which uses short-pulse RF with microneedling to maximize skin density and firmness. 

What are the advantages of microneedling?

Microneedling available at Artem Med Spa offers numerous anti-aging benefits, including:

  • Firmer, tighter, smoother skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Fewer lines and wrinkles
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Diminished acne scarring and surgical scars
  • Smaller pores
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Younger-looking appearance

Microneedling is a simple treatment that offers phenomenal, long-lasting results without pain or downtime.

What happens during microneedling?

During microneedling treatment at Artem Med Spa, you rest comfortably while your provider cleans the treatment area and applies numbing cream to optimize comfort. They use a handheld device to puncture your skin with tiny needles to stimulate cell regrowth and sometimes emit radiofrequency energy to targeted tissues.

The time microneedling lasts depends on the size of the surface areas treated. It usually takes less than an hour. 

What should I expect afterward?

Treated skin is often red or swollen after microneedling treatment, but you can resume a typical daily routine immediately. Protect your skin from the sun and keep it clean. You might experience some scabbing or flaking during the healing process. 

Results often appear soon afterward, with continued improvements appearing during the next few weeks. A series of microneedling sessions and periodic maintenance treatments typically provide the most effective outcome, which could last several months up to a year.
