What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as percutaneous collagen induction (PCI), is a non-surgical treatment that uses very fine, sterile needles to create tiny punctures in your skin, promoting a collagen-stimulating healing process that corrects flaws and improves skin quality. Microneedling effectively treats aging skin, scarring, facial wrinkles, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and other skin concerns.

What is the difference between traditional microneedling and RF microneedling?

RF microneedling adds the element of radiofrequency energy onto the traditional microneedling procedure. The energy is delivered through the small needles to further enhance skin tightening, scar, and wrinkle reduction. The amount of radiofrequency energy is adjusted to suit specific skin conditions or certain areas of the body, and the depth of its application can also be adjusted to reach deeper layers of the dermis. 

Both traditional microneedling and RF microneedling will deliver  positive results; adding radiofrequency energy reduces the time it takes to see results and increases the results seen. In RF microneedling, the results are produced faster, are more dramatic, and are longer lasting. Traditional microneedling is optimal for slower and more subtle rejuvenation. 

Is microneedling painful?

This treatment is considered to be painless by most. We will apply a topical numbing cream prior to your microneedling session to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your treatment.


There is no downtime with microneedling! Your skin may appear red for a few hours, but most clients notice a post-treatment tightening and glow. 


How many treatments will I need?

For traditional microneedling, we recommend a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced four to six weeks apart until your desired results are achieved. To maintain results, a treatment every 6 months is recommended.


For microneedling with RF, we recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. To maintain results, a treatment every six months is recommended. 

How much will microneedling cost?

It is understandable that cost is always a factor in your decision. 

Costs to consider include:

  • Areas being treated

  • Number of treatments required

  • Your ultimate goals

At Southern Beauty Aesthetics we also understand how patients are managing their budgets, which is why we offer financing through CareCredit®.
