You may be familiar with microneedling tools – small devices in the shape of rollers with tiny needles that roll on your skin to stimulate the new collagen .
The trend for microneedling has been on and off the network for the past few years (and the results are questionable), but now it’s back.
“This time the microneedling is different because the technology has improved a lot,” says dermatologist Michael Gold. In addition to home appliances (such as Rodan + Fields Redefine Amp MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller ), the brand new treatment performed in doctors’ offices combines microphone pens – needles with radiofrequency energy. Recently, EndyMed introduced the Intensive procedure, fractionated radiofrequency treatment and microneedling (a typical session lasts around 45 minutes) that targets acne scars and depressed wrinkles.
“I think needling is here to stay – we will see more and more in the years to come. It’s a great treatment for reshaping skin tissue because it destroys the bad existing collagen and then replaces it with rejuvenated collagen to improve your skin, “says Dr. Gold.
