Laser therapy and microneedling can be used effectively together to produce optimal skin rejuvenation. Both procedures stimulate collagen production, and the results will be dramatic. Your dermatologist may recommend both treatments in the same appointment or staggering them. You will receive personalized recommendations based on your aesthetic goals and unique health history.
Regardless of whether you undergo laser skin treatments and microneedling at the same appointment or in two separate sessions, you can expect a remarkable transformation at Dallas Dermatology Partners.
How do laser therapy and microneedling work together?
By themselves, laser skin treatments and microneedling can help you enjoy younger-looking skin. You will notice improvements in texture, tone, and firmness.
For optimal results, many patients prefer to combine these treatments for skin rejuvenation. For example, if you combine the Moxi laser and the Genius RF Microneedling system, you will see a near-instantaneous improvement in the texture of your skin. These treatments work effectively together to stimulate new collagen production, tighten skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and a rapid reduction of areas of hyperpigmentation and skin damage. In contrast, having only a Genius treatment by itself may require a wait time of up to three months before you can see the full result.
In some cases, the dermatologist may recommend combining both treatments on the same day. Other patients may be best served by staggering the treatments. Discuss your goals and skin health history with the dermatologist to determine which treatment schedule works best for you.
First, however, your dermatologist will determine whether one or both treatments are appropriate for you. Microneedling and laser skin resurfacing complement each other effectively and safely.
How do laser skin treatments work?
Different laser skin resurfacing treatments include the Sciton Moxi laser, Halo laser, and BBL Hero laser. For example, the non-ablative Sciton Moxi laser is appropriate for patients with post-inflammatory pigmentation and works wonders for those interested in skin “prejuvenation.”
On the other hand, the BBL Hero laser is ideal for patients who desire minimal downtime. Your dermatologist will discuss your skin goals to determine which is right for you. Although each laser is a little different, they all work similarly; they deliver an intense beam of light energy to reveal the new skin underneath and stimulate collagen production.
Laser skin treatments can help you look younger and more vibrant by:
- Minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Addressing photo-damage areas, such as sunspots
- Reducing other blemishes, such as acne scars
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling creates areas of micro-damage to trigger the skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes. It uses very tiny, sterile needles to prick the skin gently. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin looks smoother and firmer. After a series of microneedling treatments, you can expect to see improvements in the following issues:
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose, crepe-like skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Minor scars and stretch marks
Some patients may opt to undergo RF microneedling, which introduces radiofrequency energy and further stimulates collagen and elastin production.
Dallas Dermatology Partners is pleased to offer Genius RF Microneedling, which combines microneedling with fractional radiofrequency energy to create younger-looking skin. The smart handpiece of this system enables our dermatologists to adjust the RF penetration depth to each individual’s skin thickness and texture, delivering a fully customized treatment.
While you will notice some results immediately after receiving Genius RF treatments, it can take up to three months to see the full result. This is because it takes time for the body to produce new collagen.
