What is microneedling?

Microneedling at Appiah's Signature MedSpa uses a penlike device. This device contains tiny needles that make microtears in treated tissues, stimulating new cell growth to reduce common signs of aging. Microneedling is an effective anti-aging solution for all skin types and colors. 

Microneedling technology works by generating vertical micro-channels in targeted tissues. This FDA-cleared, advanced microneedling system provides exceptional results quickly without pain, downtime, or invasive procedures. 

Which benefits does microneedling offer?

Microneedling treatments at Appiah's Signature MedSpa provide an array of benefits, including:

  • Tighter, smoother skin
  • Fewer imperfections 
  • Younger-looking tissues
  • Healthier skin
  • Increased collagen and elastin production 
  • Reduced acne scarring

Microneedling harnesses your body’s natural ability to generate new cells and achieve flawless beauty.

Am I a candidate for microneedling?

Your Appiah's Signature MedSpa specialist determines if microneedling is right for you after discussing your cosmetic goals and examining your skin. 

In addition to microneedling, the practice provides Botox®, dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments. A medical weight loss wellness clinic and intravenous (IV) therapy are available, too. 

What happens during microneedling?

Before you complete microneedling, a provider cleans your skin and may numb it to optimize comfort. They use a Microneedling device to make tiny punctures in treated tissues while you rest comfortably.

Your provider might apply a nourishing serum or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) sourced from your blood to treat tissues with microneedling to optimize healing and new cell growth. Each treatment typically lasts about 30 minutes, though treatment times vary from person to person. 

What can I expect afterward?

Common side effects after microneedling include redness, tenderness, and inflammation. You may develop some scabbing as treated tissues heal and new cells are generated. After healing is complete, you can expect smoother, less-wrinkled, healthier skin and a revitalized glow.

Ask your Appiah's Signature MedSpa provider if you’re a candidate for more than one type of aesthetic solution and when to schedule your next microneedling treatment to achieve long-lasting results and help prevent future signs of aging.
