Who Can Benefit from Microneedling?

Microneedling is a fascinating way to kickstart your body’s natural healing abilities. If you have skin issues and wish you could turn back the clock or somehow repair the damage, you’re in luck. Microneedling could be just the therapy you need to help make your skin look and feel years younger.

At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, Dr. Surinder Sandhu uses microneedling combined with radiofrequency energy or PRP/PRF treatment to give you the results you crave without the need for cosmetic surgery.

Microneedling basics

When your skin is broken, even if the break is so small you can’t even see it, your body goes into recovery mode. The injury prompts growth factors to gather in the area of the wound, and protein production goes into overdrive to create collagen and elastin, the building blocks that form the foundation under your skin.

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like: tiny needles pricking the skin to make “micro-injuries.” You can barely feel them, but they kickstart that regenerative process to renew and replenish skin cells.

At New Image Medical Spa, we make sure your microneedling experience is as comfortable as possible by applying a topical numbing cream, so you won’t feel the pricking. It’s over quickly, and you’ll be able to return to your daily activities with at worst a little redness around the treated areas, which will quickly dissipate.

Who can benefit?

Both men and women can benefit from microneedling treatment. It’s the ideal form of therapy if you have any of the following conditions:

Loose facial skin

As you age, collagen and elastin production slows down. Microneedling signals your body to restart production, making skin tighter and smoother.

Fine lines and wrinkles

The same issue of collagen loss causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear. New protein production fills in those marks, giving your face a plumper, more youthful look.

Acne scars

Acne can leave dimples and roughness. Microneedling helps smooth away these imperfections and erase those memories of high school or pregnancy.

Sun damage

Photoaging can leave your skin wrinkled and weathered. A series of microneedling treatments can turn back time and take years off of your appearance.

Hyperpigmentation

If you have variations in skin tone, sun spots, melasma, or dark patches, microneedling can minimize these changes and smooth your skin coloration so it blends more naturally. 

Large pores

A clogged complexion combined with collagen loss can leave your pores looking large and attractive. Microneedling helps rejuvenate your skin and fill out gaps in collagen under the surface, helping to tighten up the skin and reduce the size of pores.

Microneedling +

At New Image Medical Spa, we utilize the Potenza™ RF microneedling system, combining microneedling and radiofrequency technology to deliver RF energy deep into the skin. This helps boost the effectiveness of the microneedling process. 

We can also take a sample of your blood and centrifuge it to separate the platelets and white blood cells from your own blood. We apply this PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) or PRP (platelet-rich plasma) directly after microneedling to attract extra growth factors and speed the regenerative process.
