Microneedling is a treatment that works with the body’s natural healing and regenerative abilities to correct aesthetic imperfections, promote overall skin health, and correct some of the most common signs of aging. We offer this collagen induction therapy at True Radiance Medispa located in Raleigh, NC, and design customized treatment plans for patients looking for a natural way to improve their skin and achieve noticeable results.
At True Radiance Medispa, we offer microneedling treatments with Rejuvapen NXT® to perform treatments because of its ability to deliver a customizable and effective skin care treatment. Rejuvapen NXT® is a medical-grade, state-of-the-art skin needling device that delivers a uniform treatment, creating thousands of microchannels on the skin’s surface during the treatment.
The body responds to these microchannels with a healing reaction that results in increased collagen and elastin production following treatment, correcting some of the most common facial imperfections. These microchannels also increase the skin’s absorption rate, so anything applied topically during and after the treatment will better absorb into the deeper layers to promote youthful skin.
Microneedling treatments with Rejuvapen NXT® create injuries within the skin that forces an immediate and long-term healing response from the body that results in increased collagen and elastin production. The skin immediately begins to repair itself, and this healing process will continue in the weeks following treatment. Old or damaged skin cells are replaced with new healthy cells, making the skin look and feel younger.
Patients with early signs of aging, advanced signs of aging, an uneven skin texture or tone, and other complexion concerns can benefit from a microneedling treatment plan. This treatment is an effective solution for those looking to treat the different types of skin discoloration like hyperpigmentation, melasma, sunspots, age spots, and brown spots.
It can also improve skin tone and texture, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, and the signs of aging, and promote healthier skin. While the face is one of the most common treatment areas, we can also use it to perfect the skin on the neck, arms, décolleté, hands, abdomen, legs, and back.
Microneedling treatments take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes. Your total treatment length will depend on the number of areas you want to treat, the size of those areas, and the concerns you want to address. We can apply a topical numbing solution to your skin before your treatment to ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort during the needling process.
The Rejuvapen NXT® uses sterile and single-use cartridges that contain a total of nine 33-gauge microneedles. Using a topical serum, we will glide the device across your skin to create microchannels, forcing the body to respond with a healing reaction.
Once the treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities. You may notice some redness, tightness, and peeling, which are normal responses and will subside in a day of treatment. We will give you detailed aftercare instructions so you know how to care for your skin the days following treatment.
Most patients benefit from a series of treatments with four weeks between each. While you will see results after one treatment, the best results come from a series to promote increased collagen production over time. Patients with more advanced signs of aging or skin concerns may need anywhere from three to eight or more sessions for the best results.
After achieving your desired results, monthly maintenance treatments can help you maintain beautiful, healthy skin long term. When we meet with you during your initial consultation, we will give you more information about the treatment and evaluate your skin to determine your treatment plan.
One of the many benefits of Rejuvapen NXT® is its customizable nature that enables us to address some of the more sensitive, harder-to-reach areas of the face using the correct needle depth. We can adjust the device’s needle depth to target broader areas of the face and smaller areas. We can also perform the PRP facial and customize your treatment using PRP from your blood to promote enhanced results.
The PRP facial is a treatment that combines microneedling techniques and their associated benefits with growth factors derived from the patient’s blood. Using growth factors during microneedling enhances the treatment results. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma and is the portion of your blood that contains healing and regenerative qualities and growth factors.
We obtain PRP with a standard blood draw and then process the sample in a centrifuge that separates the PRP from the plasma. Once we prepare the sample, we’ll apply it to your skin during your treatment so that it can absorb into the microchannels created by the Rejuvapen NXT®. As your skin absorbs the PRP into the microchannels, the growth factors in the PRP will promote cellular regeneration and skin health.
Most patients are good candidates for this treatment. Since the treatment is completely customizable, we can design a treatment plan that meets your needs. If you develop an acne breakout or skin infection in the planned treatment area before your scheduled treatment, it’s important that you contact our office so that we can determine whether you can proceed with the treatment or if we should reschedule for safety reasons.
If you’re looking for a minimally-invasive treatment that relies on your body’s natural healing properties and abilities to perfect your skin, microneedling is the perfect place to start. We can customize your treatment with PRP to enhance your results and noticeably improve some of your most bothersome skin imperfections.
I love Dr Yap! She is great and the botox I get there is incredible. I can go 8 months without needing to go back. Staff is great. Always will tell me about specials they are having. Thank you for taking care of me.
Dr. Yap recommended micro needling since I had significant scarring on my cheeks as a result of having cystic acne as a teenager as well as sun damage. I am now on my 4th micro needling session and the results have been amazing. My scarring has significantly been reduced and my skin is glowing.
I bought my wife a botox and filler package and they did a fantastic job. Erica really knows her stuff. We will be back for sure. My wife has never been so happy.
Very happy with Dr. Antony and True Radiance. I bought a groupon botox treatment. Dr. Antony did a great job administering it and he's really likeable. I will be back!
