Microneedling in Lincoln

What You Should Know About Microneedling In Lincoln

Skin Care / May 3, 2022

The pursuit of healthy, vibrant skin isn’t a new phenomenon. For centuries, people have tried countless treatments and techniques to improve the look of their skin. While many of these treatments produced little or no results, some stood the test of time and have only been improved. 

Microneedling is one such treatment. Its history can be traced back thousands of years to acupuncture in ancient Chinese medicine, and it was first used as an aesthetic treatment in Germany at the turn of the 20th Century. At Vesper Med Spa, we’ve taken microneedling in Lincoln and brought it into the 21st Century with Virtue RF Microneedling!

Read on to learn more about the benefits of microneedling, how Virtue RF Microneedling improves those benefits, and why you should trust Vesper for microneedling in Lincoln.

What exactly is microneedling? 

As the name suggests, microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that creates small punctures in your skin using tiny needles. These small wounds, or micro-wounds, encourage your body to create more collagen and elastin, which heals and improves your skin in a variety of ways. 

Microneedling in Lincoln can help with conditions such as: 

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough or crepey texture
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Skin laxity
  • Hyperhidrosis 
  • And more!

What is RF Microneedling?

Virtue RF Microneedling is essentially the enhanced version of traditional microneedling. With the old treatment, a handheld piece runs along your skin to create the micro-wounds. 

In RF microneedling, radiofrequency (RF) energy enhances the already great benefits of traditional microneedling by delivering energy through the needles. Our device is unique in that you can adjust how much energy is delivered and how long it is delivered for. This flexibility allows us to precisely target specific results like fine lines versus setting scars which would have different parameters. This thermal damage then stimulates neocollagenesis, otherwise known as the collagen-making process. 

Unlike traditional microneedling devices which are associated with bleeding and social downtime, the addition of RF energy means virtually no bleeding.

Virtue RF targets the problem areas with robotic precision delivery, and the ability to adjust the depth to optimize results depending on the thickness of the skin. Normally, microneedling should not be done in patients with active acne breakouts, but Virtue RF has built in blue LED light to kill the acne-causing bacteria and treat active acne breakouts.

Best treatment areas for microneedling in Lincoln

Microneedling is often used as a treatment on the face, and it’s incredibly effective getting rid of acne scarring and textural issues on the face. It’s much more than just a face treatment, however. 

Microneedling in Lincoln can be used all over your body to treat a variety of issues, particularly skin laxity. 

Skin laxity

Skin laxity is just a fancy way of saying sagging skin. This is a common problem that affects people of all ages for a variety of reasons, such as pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. 

Collagen keeps your skin firm and elastin helps give your skin flexibility and elasticity, but as we age we produce less of each. With reduced collagen and elastin, our skin struggles to stay firm and smooth, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Other factors, like poor diet, environmental factors (like sun exposure), and tobacco use also decrease collagen and elastin production. 

Virtue RF Microneedling specifically stimulates collagen and elastin production, which in turn helps improve skin laxity. 

The best way to determine where Virtue RF Microneedling treatment can benefit you most, is to schedule a consultation with Vesper Med Spa and talk with one of our experienced providers. 

Treatments that complement microneedling

Like many of our wonderful treatment options at Vesper Med Spa, microneedling is just one factor in a complete skincare plan. Here are a few of our favorite complementary treatments:

BBL

BBL is an advanced light therapy treatment that uses broadband light, or BBL, to treat many different skin conditions. 

We have the state-of-the-art Sciton Joule X platform that has both laser and BBL HERO capabilities, which allows us to perform a range of treatments that go hand-in-hand with microneedling in Lincoln. 

  • BBL Corrective: This treatment uses higher energy levels of IPL (intense pulsed light) energy to permeate into the top layers of skin and treat surface-level imperfections like hyperpigmentation, freckles, red spots, rosacea, visible facial blood vessels, and more. This treatment is often the foundational BBL treatment to correct your skin concerns..
  • Forever Young BBL: This treatment uses lower energy (but many more pulses) to send BBL light deep into the skin with decreased risk of negative side effects like striping or burns. This addresses deep hyperpigmentation and sun damage, and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to make your skin appear and function like that of a much younger you.
  • Forever Clear BBL: If you struggle with acne and the inflammation, hyperpigmentation, and the scars it causes, the Forever Clear BBL treatment can help you! Using this protocol, we kill acne-causing bacteria, address inflammation, and jumpstart the healing process to help you get the clear skin you deserve.
  • BBL HERO: A high-energy treatment that can treat large areas of the body in no time! Address vascular lesions, scars, sun damage, and other pigmentation issues on virtually any area of your skin.

All of these treatment options work together with microneedling to completely rejuvenate your skin. For example, we can use Forever Clear BBL and Virtue RF Microneedling to effectively treat acne scarring. Forever Clear BBL reduces the pigmentation caused by acne scarring, and Virtue RF Microneedling helps your skin improve the texture of the scarred area.

PHYSIQ

PHYSIQ is an amazing new body sculpting device that we’re proud to offer at Vesper Med Spa. It’s a revolutionary, FDA-Cleared treatment that employs STEP technology (Sequential Thermal & Electrical Pulse) to simultaneously reduce fat and tone muscle!

Results from PHYSIQ can appear as soon as six weeks after treatment, and our patients see significant tightening and toning in their abdomen, legs, arms, buttocks, hips, back, and flanks!

That muscle tightening unfortunately doesn’t apply to the skin as well. For this reason, we like to pair PHYSIQ with Virtue RF Microneedling to assist patients dealing with postpartum skin laxity or skin laxity after weight loss. RF microneedling will heat up the underlying layers of the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production, helping your skin bounce back and tighten around the area you had PHYSIQ treatment done.

Vesper is proud to be the premier medical spa in Lincoln. You can rest assured knowing you are in the most skilled and practiced hands in the region. Below are some of our answers to frequently asked questions about RF microneedling.

What happens during microneedling in Lincoln?

Your treatment can take anywhere from 15-60 minutes, depending on the treated area. To start, we will apply a numbing cream, then we prep the skin with an antimicrobial cleanser. 

When your skin is numb, your provider sets the individualized settings of the device and moves it over the skin at a consistent speed. There should be virtually no discomfort during treatment. 

Do I need any downtime after treatment?

Unlike other skin rejuvenation treatments like laser resurfacing or chemical peels, you can return to your daily schedule immediately after RF microneedling in Lincoln. There may be some pinpoint bleeding that clears up minutes after treatment, otherwise you can return to your daily activities. We do recommend, however, that you stay away from skincare products and makeup and avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours after treatment.

When will I see results? 

Because the technique behind RF microneedling harnesses your body’s natural ability to produce collagen, results vary from person to person. However, most patients see improvement in 3 to 6 months after their last treatment.  

As with other aesthetic treatments, results are greatly influenced by your lifestyle, sun exposure, diet, and use of effective skin care products. That said, your aesthetician can personalize an at-home skincare regimen for you to help maintain your results long term.
