How does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling is a rather simple concept, though it may come off a bit scary at first. Rest-assured! Microneedling is a non-surgical and pain-free procedure. So, how does microneedling work so well?

Let’s explain the concept in a way most of us are already familiar with. When you exercise, your muscular tissues break down and tear. When someone gains muscle, these torn tissues have simply been rebuilt by the body’s natural process to become stronger and less-vulnerable than before. This is how microneedling works. By using an array of micro-needles, small punctures are applied to the dermis. This promotes the skin to kickstart its natural healing process, creating new and rejuvenated skin cells that have stimulated more collagen production— leaving you with fresh, healthier skin. This is a great process for reducing scars, skin imperfections, and tightening.

Difference between regular microneedling and vivace microneedling?

Regular microneedling is a group of needles that pierces in an out of the skin, creating micro-punctures. These punctures stimulate the natural healing process. This can be very beneficial to acne scars and facial rejuvenation. However, every process can be perfected, right? Vivace microneedling does just that, taking the benefits of regular microneedling to a new level.

The difference between the two lies in the combination of radio frequency energy with more precise proliferation of the dermis with the vivace needles. The vivace system delivers the radio frequency within the skin at the area in which collagen production can be best reached. The needles are equipped with the radio frequency ability, which promotes collagen stimulation and skin tightening, as well as the natural healing process to rejuvenate the skin.

Radio frequency energy, also known as RF, heats the dermis tissue when applied. This rise in temperature results in the contraction of collagen fibers, which is the cause for the skin tightening. Fibroblasts, cells responsible for tissue and protein molecule production, are also stimulated to produce more collagen over time.

This is much more advanced and effective than simply using regular microneedling.
