Microneedle treatments may seem like an easy procedure to understand; however, there are different types of microneedling. Determining what the best option for you is can be a difficult process. It is even difficult to find out what all the options are. Continue reading to learn all about microneedling and the options available at PFRANKMD™.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling goes by many names. Some of those names are Dermapen, Rejuvapen, Infini, and Vivace™. It is typically used as an alternative to facials and other face rejuvenation treatments. Microneedling can seem intimidating, partially due to the inclusion of the word needle in its name, but the needle barely breaks the skin.
During the procedure, a pen with multiple fine needles is repeatedly poked into the outer layer of the skin. This causes minor damage to the skin, causing collagen to be produced in order to repair the skin. The result is smoother, fresher, younger looking skin.
The great thing about microneedling is that the results last much longer than a standard facial. You will have fresh, softer skin for months after a microneedling procedure; the effects of a standard facial will fade after just a week or two.
Types of Microneedling
There are about a half a dozen options for microneedling now. Competitors are rushing products to market to outperform one another. Without a doubt, Infini and Vivace are the industry leaders at the moment. Both products use insulated needles, so how do we measure which one is greater?
Infini microneedles have been considered the industry standard for a while now. The Infini microneedle uses substantially more energy than Vivace. This means that results are more apparent with less treatments. On the flip side, there is also more redness directly after the procedure, although this fades quickly.
Vivace is another option for those looking to get the best product you can buy. This treatment delivers microneedling with radiofrequency. Generally speaking, it will take a series of regular treatments until maximum results are seen.
Whether you decide to go with Vivace or Infini for your facial rejuvenation needs, you will be more than happy with your results at PFRANKMD™. Thousands have already experienced results.
