Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment aimed at stimulating the production of collagen, which is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s elasticity and strength. 

During your microneedling treatment, the team at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center uses a special tool that creates microtears in the surface of your skin. The microtears simulate a wound, which triggers your body’s natural healing system to repair the damage, including the production of new collagen.

The team offers microneedling to fix many common skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Large pores

You may also consider the cosmetic treatment to restore your skin’s youthful glow and vitality.

Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center is equipped with two microneedling tools, including the SkinPen and Secret RF. 

What is SkinPen microneedling?

Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center is dedicated to providing the best cosmetic treatments available and uses the SkinPen to perform your microneedling. SkinPen was the world’s first FDA-cleared microneedling device. 

The state-of-the-art microneedling tool is designed to flexibly treat numerous areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. The tool allows for controlled induction of your skin’s natural repair process to trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation.

Your SkinPen microneedling at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center may take about 30 minutes. To minimize discomfort during your SkinPen microneedling, the team applies a numbing cream to your skin prior to treatment.

You may experience some skin redness following your session, similar to a sunburn, but these side effects should disappear quickly with little to no downtime. 

For optimal results, the team may recommend a series of treatments. 

What is Secret RF microneedling?

Secret RF microneedling is a more advanced tool that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy. The advanced cosmetic device uses microneedles to deliver fractional radiofrequency energy into varying levels of your skin, including the deeper layers where treatment is more beneficial. 

Secret RF microneedling at Woodlands Wellness and Cosmetic Center takes only 20 minutes of your time and requires little to no downtime. To minimize discomfort, the team applies a numbing agent to your skin prior to treatment. 

To achieve optimal results, the team recommends three to four Secret RF microneedling treatments set at four- to six-week intervals. To keep your skin looking fresh and youthful, the team recommends maintenance treatments every 12-18 months.
