Microneedling: A Proven Treatment For Firmer, Tighter Skin
When you look your best, you'll likely feel more confident in your skin. One effective way to achieve this is by reducing signs of aging through skin treatments like Microneedling. Commonly referred to as collagen induction therapy, Microneedling is a rejuvenation procedure that can revitalize aging skin and minimize the appearance of acne scars.
This treatment works by stimulating your body's natural healing process, which triggers the creation of new tissues and enhances skin texture. If you're seeking a safe and effective way to achieve younger-looking skin, consider scheduling a Microneedling treatment at YMD Medspa in Atlanta. We invite you to book a consultation with us today.
What Are The Different Types Of Microneedling?
What is Microneedling? If you are looking for a serious skin glow-up without the significant downtime of more invasive lasers, consider Microneedling. A favorite skin rejuvenator, this collagen-stimulating needle-based treatment corrects almost every skin concern possible, from smoothing out lines and wrinkles to reducing the look of acne scars and everything in between. There are a few different types of Microneedling available, and depending on your skin, this determines what kind of Microneedling will best benefit you.
Mechanical Microneedling with SkinPen is more intense than at-home Microneedling rollers, but it’s the least robust option. This version of Microneedling is strictly Microneedling itself; no add-on treatments or infusions are used. Instead, it uses a motorized pen to create hundreds of microscopically controlled skin wounds at about a depth of 2.5 millimeters. Creating safe micro-injuries on the skin’s surface prompts the skin to heal and stimulates collagen production to improve skin.
Often called the “Vampire Facial,” combining Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) works well for those whose skin requires even more collagen production. It also enhances skin tone, diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sunspots, and works better to improve acne scars better than Microneedling alone. They impart the same SkinPen Microneedling component as a standard treatment. However, once the Microneedling portion is complete, a matrix containing plasma extracted from your blood is applied directly to the skin. The skin’s open channels allow the growth factors’ anti-aging effects to better absorb into the skin for more dramatic results.
Consider Vivace Microneedling with RF for more skin-tightening benefits. This version of Microneedling ranges in strength depending on the machine used. The needles used during the treatment are thicker than others, which allows them to deliver a dose of heat deep within the skin. The energy helps stimulate collagen production at a deeper level for a tightening effect. Vivace Microneedling with RF also helps improve deeper acne scars, enlarged pores, and the expected effects of aging.
Who Can Benefit From The Treatment?
Microneedling offers a variety of benefits which is why it’s used to improve everything from hair loss to acne scars and stretch marks, to name a few of its benefits.

How Does It Work?
Quickly inserting needles into the skin at appropriate depths (anywhere from .5 millimeters to 2.5 millimeters or deeper, depending on the Microneedling device used) creates tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. These open channels allow specific serums and ingredients used during the treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin for optimal results. As these wounds heal over the coming days and weeks, the skin becomes smoother, plumper, and more youthful.
More Than Worth It!
Following Microneedling Atlanta patients may see immediate results in their skin, such as a brighter complexion or less redness. It often takes several weeks for the full effects of microneedling to become noticeable, as the process of collagen production and remodeling takes time. Depending on the client and what kind of treatment they are looking for, the benefits of Microneedling can last for several months, even up to more than a year.
What Is The Downtime For A Microneedling Treatment?
The more basic the Microneedling treatment is, the shorter and less intense the recovery is. For example, more intense Microneedling RF treatments can leave the skin red and swollen for a few days, if not longer, depending on the device used.
Generally, there are no risks associated with Microneedling as long as it is performed safely and by a professional. However, if it is not performed correctly by an experienced professional, there is more risk of infections, bruising, and hyperpigmentation.
Patients with any skin type are eligible for therapy as long as they have no current infections or lesions. While safe and efficient, Microneedling is not advised for pregnant clients.
