Taking Microneedling to the Next Level

Microneedling Treatment - Microneedling NYC

We like to think of ourselves as skin transformation experts, which is why we love recommending treatments like microneedling to our clients. However, unlike many service providers, we believe that phenomenal skin starts with results-oriented, highly-customizable treatment plans designed with our clients’ best and optimal skin transformations in mind.

While it’s tempting to get caught up in the hype of a specific treatment or new technology, we know that there’s more to great skin than a single treatment. Microneedling is phenomenal and delivers wonderful results, but—if you’re like us—we believe that your skin deserves more than just “average.”

Translation? If you want to take microneedling to the next level—and achieve the extraordinary skin transformation you deserve—it’s time to go beyond the basics.

What Is a Microneedling Treatment? 

Microneedling is a fairly simple procedure. The treatment involves using a pen-like device with tiny, sterile needles over the skin. Depth of penetration varies on the area being treated, but—in general—the needles range between 0.5 to 2.0 millimeters in depth.

Because of the size of the needles penetrating the skin, microneedling treatments allow for controlled, microscopic injuries that stimulate collagen (also known as collagen induction) and open micro-channels into the skin which can be used to apply a topical microneedling solution into the skin to enhance treatment.

As a result? The skin tightens, wrinkles and fine lines are diminished, scarring and hyperpigmentation are reduced, pores become finer, and the overall health, circulation, and appearance of the skin is improved. 

“What we love about microneedling is that almost anyone is a candidate for this treatment,” explains Dr. Ginsberg, Director of Clinical Operations & Development at Tribeca Medspa. “It’s non-invasive, has very low downtime, can be performed fairly quickly, and is well-tolerated overall.” 

The precise application of the microneedling device allows for increased flexibility when targeting hard-to-treat areas around the eyes and lips, and—when compared to other treatments involving heat or lasers—post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is lower overall, making it a safe and effective treatment for dark skin types as well.

Are All Microneedling Treatments The Same? 

When it comes to phenomenal skincare—and results you can trust—not all treatments are created equal, and the same is true for microneedling. Although it’s a very simple and safe procedure overall, results vary based on the speed of the microneedling device, the amount of needles, the type of microneedling solution used, and the level of experience your provider has.

“We use an advanced medical-grade, automated, cordless, high-speed micro-needling device which meets FDA’s regulatory compliance,” Dr. Ginsberg says. “To amplify results, we use a growth factor and cytokine solution formulated with a Hyaluronic Acid base, and—unlike other microneedling solutions—ours contains no harmful ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, and dyes.”

Not only does this pro-healing, anti-inflammatory serum enhance the regeneration of fresh, new cells and tissues—improving the skin’s overall health at a deeper, cellular level—it also elevates the results of any microneedling treatment to the next level.

What Treatments Work Best When Combined With Microneedling? 

While microneedling is wonderful as a standalone option, this treatment works best when combined with other services. Especially if you’re interested in addressing multiple indications and concerns, combining microneedling treatments with another treatment is an easy way to dramatically improve your overall results. 

Microneedling with Radio Frequency (RF) 

If you’re looking for the cutting edge of microneedling treatments, Vivace Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling device is it. This is the newest generation of microneedling devices, and it’s designed specifically for an incomparable, comfortable treatment.

“The 36 gold-tipped insulated needles deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the deep needles have penetrated through the skin,” Dr. Ginsberg says. “This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps to stimulate new collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths of 0.5mm – 3.5mm in the skin.” 

Clients who opt for microneedling with radio frequency can expect immediate and significant improvement in wrinkles, scar reduction, and skin laxity that will continue to improve over time. 

Microneedling with PRF

Most people recognize Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) under another name, the Vampire Facial, which was popularized by celebrities like Kim Kardashian-West and known for its remarkable, skin rejuvenating results.

“At Tribeca, we actually use PRF—or Platelet-Rich Fibrin—with microneedling,” says Dr. Ginsberg. “PRF is the newest generation of platelet concentrate that contains platelets and growth factors in the form of fibrin membranes which acts as a scaffolding under the skin.” 

And, because PRF is FDA-cleared, it’s considered the gold standard for natural skin rejuvenation, especially since the platelets are derived from blood taken from the client themselves. Once the blood sample is spun in a centrifuge to isolate the nutrient-rich platelets that contain powerful growth factors, the PRF concentrate is applied topically during the microneedling process to speed up healing, regenerate new skin cells, and lift and volumize the face.  

Microneedling with Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a safe exfoliating treatment which involves using a surgical blade to remove dead skin and vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. Plus, dermaplaning helps unclog dirt and oil from skin follicles, which means—when it’s combined with microneedling—the skin is left smoother and healthier overall.

Thanks to the rise in high-definition digital technology and selfie culture, this treatment combination is popular with celebrity clients, millennials, and brides as it eases makeup application and eliminates fine, baby hairs that are often visible on HD images and videos.

Microneedling with Chemical Peel

While both microneedling and chemical peels are powerful stand-alone treatments that address multiple skin problems, when combined they can achieve optimal results to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, large pores, and atrophic acne scars.

Microneedling rebuilds collagen while the customized chemical peel will peel away the dead skin cells, making way for the new ones,” Dr. Ginsberg explains. “This advanced treatment is a winning combination for enhancing the overall tone and texture of the skin.”

Microneedling with Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL)

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy (IPL), also known as a photofacial, is a laser treatment which involves pulses of broad spectrum light that specifically target hemoglobin (red blood cells) and melanin (pigmentation) in the skin. The light causes intentional damage to these areas of the skin, which helps diminish redness, telangiectasia (tiny veins), or brown spots.

If you’re looking to reverse the signs of aging, this combination is known as a “dynamic duo” that is one of Tribeca’s favorite innovative treatments. 

Microneedling with Radio Frequency (RF) 

If you’re looking for the cutting edge of microneedling treatments, Vivace Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling device is it. This is the newest generation of microneedling devices, and it’s designed specifically for an incomparable, comfortable treatment.

“The 36 gold-tipped insulated needles deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the deep needles have penetrated through the skin,” Suen says. “This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps to stimulate new collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths of 0.5mm – 3.5mm in the skin.” 

Clients who opt for microneedling with radio frequency can expect immediate and significant improvement in wrinkles, scar reduction, and skin laxity that will continue to improve over time. 

Microneedling with LED

Light Emitting Diode (LED) therapy is a popular therapeutic treatment that was actually developed by NASA. Originally created as a way to improve plant growth in space, researchers discovered that cells exposed to this specially-designed LED light grow 150- to 200 percent faster than those not being stimulated by the light, which can be used to increase wound healing rates by up to 50%. 

The process itself is fairly simple. LED light therapy uses a variety of different wavelengths) or colors to emit UV-free light rays that can help with our bodies’ own repair process. Red LED light, in particular, aids in the production of new collagen and elastin, making it a fantastic therapeutic treatment that can be performed after microneedling.

Clients who relax for twenty minutes in a Lightstim LED light therapy treatment will also experience a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, improve scarring, clear blemishes, improve skin tone, and repair sun damage.
