What is microneedling?

Microneedling uses the tiniest needles imaginable to create small channels into your dermis, the middle skin layer that lies beneath your surface skin (epidermis). The dermis is where you produce collagen, a protein that promotes excellent skin texture, thickness, tightness, and firmness.

Essentially, a good collagen supply is what keeps your skin looking youthful — sadly, collagen depletion happens as you age. Some major signs of collagen depletion are fine lines and wrinkles and increased skin looseness.

Microneedling awakens the cells that make collagen, signaling them to return to work. Then, as a result, you’ll notice significant skin improvements.

Can microneedling treat acne scars? 

Microneedling has many uses, including acne scar treatment. Just as it can help fill in lines and wrinkles over time, microneedling can help you make new collagen to smooth out indentations from acne scars. At the same time, it increases cellular turnover so you can grow new skin to replace the discolored and scarred skin.

Along with acne scars and wrinkles, microneedling can help with:

  • Large pores
  • Rough skin texture
  • Skin discoloration, like hyperpigmentation
  • Crepey or loose skin
  • Stretch marks

Microneedling can treat nearly any part of the face, the abdomen, and other parts of your body where you have skin concerns.

What are the newest microneedling treatments?

The newest microneedling treatments combine microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Microneedling already offers remarkable skin improvement, but adding radiofrequency energy to the treatment enables more dramatic results.

AK Beautiful You LLC has two state-of-the-art systems, Potenza™ and Morpheus8, to maximize microneedling results. Both systems use radiofrequency energy that is delivered into the skin through the needles. This heats the dermal skin layer and stimulates additional collagen remodeling.

Potenza can treat nearly any area where you have skin concerns because it has a variety of special tips and four unique radiofrequency modes. Morpheus8 can target subdermal fat to essentially destroy unwanted fat and streamline your facial contours as it improves your collagen production in the dermis.

Both Potenza and Morpheus8 can give you impressive microneedling results, but one or the other may be best suited for your specific goals. The AK Beautiful You LLC team offers customized advice to help you get the results you’d like.

Discounted packages are available for a series of three treatments with either system, so to learn more, call AK Beautiful You LLC or click the online scheduling link now.
