This or That - Microneedling Edition

Microneedling is known as collagen induction therapy, and it uses the power of your own body to heal and improve the quality of the skin. There are two common modalities to this (although we have a 3rd!); traditional pen microneedling and radio frequency microneedling. But which one is ideal for you?

Let's explore both options to find out more!

Traditional Pen Microneedling with Rejuvapen NXT® allows us to make more surface injuries per second compared to our Legend Pro RF Microneedlig device. We are able to deliver hundreds of thousands of micro channels during 1 treatment. This means that more healing and collagen repair will be focused more superficially; so the texture and pores of the skin, fine lines will be addressed. The surface of the skin will be plumper, smoother, and happier and healthier than before your treatment.

This modality is ideal for:

·Visible scarring

·Acne scars

·Mild facial wrinkles and lines


·Visible texture or thick skin

At Essential, we use Rejuvapen NXT®, an FDA cleared microneedling device that treats facial wrinkles and can be used on just about any part of the body. We use an advanced microneedling technique to create optimal results with less trauma to surrounding tissue.

If you are looking for more heavy lifting and wrinkle improvement, you may be a better fit for RF Microneedling.

Radio Frequency Microneedling

This modality uses the microneedling science and benefits previously mentioned with the addition of radio frequency energy and heat to add firming and lifting benefits to the skin. This method is excellent for those looking for an aggressive, non-surgical way to firm and tighten the skin, reduce wrinkles, improve texture, and look more radiant.

This modality is ideal for:


·Firming loose, sagging skin

·Improving moderate facial wrinkles and lines

·Smoothing thick skin

·Correcting loss of volume

Our patients have been amazed by the changes in the their skin with this treatment, and the others mentioned above. If you are considering an injectable treatment like filler, we would highly recommend considering this treatment first to improve the overall quality of the skin - in many cases, patients have required less product to lift and restore volume after RF Microneedling!

In case you were wondering, our SmoothGlo treatment uses this incredible technology with Intense Pulsed Light to treat redness and pigmentation so you can benefit from improves in tone, texture, and tightness - all the aging symptoms all at once!

In either case, we do recommend 4 treatments for optimal results. This is so that the newly stimulated collagen can develop over time and with each treatment, more and more collagen and elastin is stimulated. When you are able to store and compound this progress, the result is much more visible and effective. We also offer a buy 3, get 1 free package so you can get the best results possible and be rewarded for committing to your skin!

We are able to support these treatments and amp their results up even more with our add-on options like PRP, Apriline Sterile Peptides, or BioCellulose Mask to create a more pampered and effective experience.

In either case, microneedling is a great option to stimulate collagen and get your skin looking and behaving more youthful. Set up a complimentary consultation so we can rule out any potential contraindications and risks, answer your questions, and come up with the best plan for you! Either way, we likely have an option that will leave you loving microneedling as much as we do!
