Microneedling improves the texture, tone, and firmness of the skin by using microneedles to create channels in the skin. While you have many options for microneedling treatment, at Levy Dermatology, we offer three of the best: SkinPen®, Vivace™ and Morpheus8®. Both offer unique advantages that make your microneedling experience even more effective.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling works by creating tiny areas of damage in the skin that encourage it to become healthier and clearer. Microneedling treats many skin concerns, including:

 

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Lack of firmness
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture

 

Microneedling can trigger powerful and long-lasting changes to the skin, especially with the recommended series of treatments and proper skin care to follow. 

How Does Microneedling Work?

When the microneedling device runs over your skin, it creates tiny channels in the outer layers of the skin. This micro-damage signals the surrounding cells to flood the area with healing factors. This quickly starts healing the micro-damage, and it also initiates the production of collagen. 

 

Collagen protein gives skin resilience, firmness, and support. By triggering the production of new collagen, microneedling works over a series of sessions to firm, tighten, and rejuvenate the skin. Both of the microneedling devices used at Levy Dermatology use this essential technology with the latest FDA-cleared advancements. 

SkinPen® Microneedling

This pen-like handheld device allows the provider to work with tremendous precision, targeting specific areas of concern with one of the smallest and more focused microneedling devices on the market. 

Vivace™ RF Microneedling

This technology uses microneedles that emit radiofrequency (RF) energy. This energy works inside the skin to create even more collagen production. RF energy can reach deeper into the skin than microneedling alone, producing even better results. 

Morpheus8® Skin Remodeling

This treatment uses a powerful combination of deeply penetrating microneedles and RF energy to target deep, intensive collagen production in problem areas all over the body. 

Recovery and Results from Microneedling

You will receive numbing cream, so you don’t feel anything during treatment. Immediately after your treatment, protect your skin by avoiding any harsh products, washing with a gentle cleanser, and making sure to wear sunscreen every time you go outside.

 

Most people will need three to six microneedling sessions for the best results, but you will continue to see improvement between sessions. Skin looks younger and smoother right away, but your results improve over several weeks as the body responds to the microneedling by building new collagen. After your sessions have been completed, results can last up to six months. Many people schedule maintenance treatments to keep their results looking rejuvenated and youthful-looking.
