Microneedling Skin Tightening in Westchester County, NY

Microneedling is one of the top minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedures at medi-spas across the country. Using dozens of tiny needles attached to a device, your aesthetician will rapidly pierce the skin of a targeted area. Over time, these microscopic wounds help reduce signs of aging on your skin while improving the skin’s texture and tightness. Microneedling is most commonly used on the face, though some patients will opt to have it touch up other parts of the body with damaged skin.

At CSNY Medi-Spa, our patients are thrilled at how effective the results are for such a simple procedure. The feedback has only gotten better since we have introduced the option of adding radiofrequency to microneedling. To learn more about how these treatments work, read on:

Traditional Microneedling

Microneedling in Westchester CountyDuring this procedure, your aesthetician gently rolls over your skin a device covered in tiny needles that slightly puncture the skin’s surface. While these minuscule pricks will not cause significant injury to your skin, they are sufficient to provoke your body to enact its natural healing response and produce more collagen and elastin. Thanks to an increase in these proteins, your skin will become tighter and signs of aging like wrinkles and sun damage should fade.

Patients experience some discomfort during the procedure, but there should be no significant pain following treatment. Patients are free to resume most normal activities as soon as they leave our office, but be aware that your skin will look red and irritated for roughly three days before clearing up. Please wear sunscreen to protect your skin.

Because the collagen will continue to improve your skin over time, you will see the best results appear a few months after treatment. Several treatments — spaced multiple weeks apart — are generally necessary to maximize the effects.

Microneedling with Radiofrequency

Skin tightening in Westchester County, NYMore recently, patients have sought ways to enhance the results of microneedling by adding radiofrequency to the procedure. At CSNY Medi-Spa, we use the celebrated Secret RF technology to send radiofrequency heat into the puncture wounds, which in turn remodels the amount of collagen the body produces.

Researchers and patients alike have found that combining radiofrequency with microneedling has the added benefits of producing more collagen, reaching deeper levels of the skin and better vanishing wrinkles and acne scars. Secret RF is also significantly more customizable that regular microneedling technology, allowing the aesthetician to reach specific depths to achieve optimal results.

Speaking of achieving optimal results, we typically recommend that our patients come in for multiple Secret RF treatments, each one spaced about a month apart. Your results will improve over time, since your body will continue to produce collagen in the months following these treatments. In the short term, your skin will be red following the treatment, but you should not experience any significant pain. Some patients do report some temporary discomfort from the pressure and heat during the procedure, however.

Try Microneedling for Yourself

If you want to see the transformative power of microneedling, with or without radiofrequency, on your own skin, you will first need to have a conversation with our aesthetician to confirm that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
