Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other facial blemishes. It helps restore collagen production for a tighter and more youthful appearance.

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is an increasingly popular, non-invasive skin treatment performed by a medical professional.
In just 30 minutes to an hour (depending on the size of the area treated), you can get results that are sure to make a difference in your appearance and confidence.
Step 1: Your skin is thoroughly cleaned to avoid potential infections or irritations.
Step 2: A topical product such as serum or acid is applied to the area being micro-needled.
Step 3: Your medical professional will use a pen-like device with tiny microscopic needles to penetrate the layers of skin with precision.
These tiny punctures on the surface layer of your skin trigger the natural healing process, producing new collagen fibers and elastin.
As these macromolecules are spun together over time due to bodily healing mechanisms, you can expect improvements in overall clarity, texture, and uniformity caused by hyperpigmentation, giving you smoother, healthier-looking skin.
CosMedic LaserMD offers Rejuvapen, a micro-needling device for skin rejuvenation and repair.
It works by creating tiny perforations in the top layers of the skin, which are precisely spaced to redefine and refresh the skin, stimulating natural collagen and elastin production.
The adjustable needle length allows for customized treatments, from skin freshening to deep scar repair, on any area of the body.
After just one treatment, you’ll notice a healthy pink glow and diminishing of fine lines.
As your skin continues to produce collagen over the next four weeks, you’ll see an even greater result – including less wrinkles and firmer pores.
Rejuvapen is proven to offer brighter, younger-looking skin with long lasting results – usually 4 months after the initial treatment.
To achieve optimal outcomes, it’s suggested that clients book four treatments spaced at least two weeks apart.
Benefits of Microneedling
There are plenty of benefits to microneedling, including:
- Improved skin texture and tone
- Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improved hyperpigmentation
- Reduced appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
- Improved skin elasticity
- Increased absorption of topical products, such as serums and acids
What to Expect During and After the Procedure
You may experience some discomfort during the treatment, but this can be easily managed with a topical numbing cream.
You may have some redness or swelling, which should resolve within a few hours.
To ensure optimal results, it’s important to keep the treated area clean and avoid using any irritating topical products.
Mild peeling or flaking is also common following microneedling and should resolve within a few days.
When planning a microneedling session, keep in mind that it can take several weeks—or even up to several months—to experience the full effects of treatment.
However, with proper care for your skin post-treatment, you can look and feel your best in no time.
RF Microneedling: Next-Level Collagen Stimulation
Combining microneedling with radio frequency (RF) technology provides a more powerful form of collagen stimulation for younger-looking skin. During RF Microneedling, tiny needles create tiny disruptions in the skin while delivering radio frequency energy.
This heats skin tissue to a point that further stimulates collagen production and elastin remodeling. The result is tighter, firmer skin with improved texture, tone and clarity.
RF Microneedling treatments are ideal for:
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimizing the appearance of pores
- Reducing acne scars and hyperpigmentation
- Tightening and lifting sagging skin
- Improving the texture and tone of aging skin for a more youthful appearance
RF Microneedling provides all the benefits of traditional microneedling to rejuvenate the skin, but the addition of radio frequency energy takes collagen stimulation and skin tightening to the next level. Studies show RF Microneedling can increase collagen production for results that last significantly longer.
