Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure gaining popularity for its ability to rejuvenate the skin and address various skin care concerns. The Ageless Med Spa team offers this treatment, which can also be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and radiofrequency (RF) to enhance your results.

To perform microneedling, your practitioner uses a device with extremely thin needles to create micro-injuries on your skin's surface. These micro-injuries stimulate your body's natural healing process, producing collagen and elastin — two essential proteins that contribute to healthy and youthful skin.
Microneedling can help with various skin care concerns, including:
During your consultation, your Ageless Med Spa provider evaluates your skin and helps determine if you can benefit from microneedling.
Microneedling can be enhanced with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and radiofrequency (RF). Here’s how:
In this procedure, your provider draws a small sample of your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets, which are rich in growth factors. Next, they apply the solution to your skin during the microneedling treatment. The micro-injuries created by microneedling allow for better absorption of the PRP, enhancing its regenerative effects and promoting collagen production.
This combines microneedling with the application of radiofrequency energy. The microneedling device creates tiny channels in your skin, and the RF energy is delivered into the deeper layers. This dual-action approach stimulates collagen and tightens the skin, making it effective for skin tightening and lifting.
The longevity of microneedling results can vary depending on several factors, including your skincare routine, specific concerns, and how well you protect your skin from sun damage.
Typical results include:
After your first session, you may notice improvements in your skin's texture and tone.
For concerns like wrinkles and acne scars, your practitioner may recommend a series of treatments (usually three to six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart) for optimal results.
To maintain your results, periodic touch-up sessions are typically needed, often annually or semi-annually. Follow your practitioner’s post-treatment care instructions and maintain a good skincare routine to prolong the benefits of microneedling.
