Microneedling Q & A

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling, also known as “collagen induction therapy,” is one of the most effective solutions for reversing the effects of aging and turning back the hands of time. This innovative aesthetic treatment can minimize the appearance of:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Scars, such as acne scars

Even though Secret RF microneedling is most commonly performed on your face, you can also get microneedling treatments on other problem areas, like your décolleté.

How does microneedling work?

Secret RF microneedling entirely rejuvenates your skin by creating tiny puncture wounds. With each pass of the Secret RF tool, tiny micro-fine needles penetrate your skin and create hundreds of tiny channels in the skin.  Radiofrequency heat is then introduced through these channels to the level of the collagen.  This stimulates a series of healing events, where cells start regenerating and tissues begin repairing. This process remodels the collagen creating smoother, younger, and healthier appearing skin. Over time, new skin tissue and collagen develop.

What makes microneedling with the Secret RF system so unique is that you get all of the benefits of microneedling, in addition to radiofrequency (RF) energy. This RF energy travels down to your deepest skin tissue layers, further stimulating collagen production for superior skin tightening and anti-aging benefits.

When will I have results after microneedling?

Dr. Lisko finds that it’s normal to have some slight swelling or redness for a couple of days after Secret RF microneedling as your skin works to heal itself. You should experience an improvement within about two to three weeks, with ongoing benefits day after day.

In some cases, Dr. Lisko suggests pairing your microneedling treatment plan with platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments.  PRP is created by drawing off some of your own blood and spinning the blood in a centrifuge.  This allows Dr. Lisko to isolate your platelet rich plasma. PRP has stem cells and numerous growth factors.  Your PRP can then be injected into the skin to correct fine lines and wrinkles or may be applied topically and introduced into the skin with the microneedling device.  Both topical and injected PRP optimize even further your treatment results with microneedling.

Dr. Lisko also recommends maintenance treatments with microneedling, Laser Genesis, or Clear + Brilliant for long-term duration of benefits.  In addition, Dr. Lisko and her team will recommend the right products for your specific skin goals..
