What is Microneedling?
When home skin care products aren't proving effective, but you aren't ready for surgical procedures, consider minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, such as microneedling. Our team is pleased to perform two types of microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our Highlands Ranch, CO office to meet your personalized needs. The first type we offer is traditional microneedling using the SkinPen®. Traditional microneedling uses several fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that contribute to your skin's overall health and appearance. The second type of microneedling we proudly offer at Purity Skin Studio is microneedling with radiofrequency by Sylfirm X, which takes traditional microneedling one step further by incorporating advanced RF technology. Created by Dr. Na — the godfather of all microneedling devices — the Sylfirm X uses dual-wave technology to provide a truly customizable treatment. Contact our Highlands Ranch, CO office today to learn more about these advanced microneedling treatments and see which is right for you.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
At Purity Skin Studio, we encourage microneedling for our Highlands Ranch, CO paitents who would like to benefit from some of the following:
- Low-risk, minimally-invasive procedure option
- Minimization of scar tissue, hyperpigmentation, or stretch marks
- Better texture and tone of skin
- Reduced aesthetic of loose skin, fine lines, and age
Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
It's possible you may benefit from microneedling treatments if you have slight to mild skin problems, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling at Purity Skin Studio may also minimize the appearance of scars, pores, and stretch marks. Keep in mind, you will need to be willing to wait before seeing results from your microneedling treatment since the elastin and collagen require a month or longer to have an impact on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier overall skin.
What Can I Expect during Microneedling?
Microneedling is performed in a treatment room and can take 1 – 2 hours, depending on the area being treated and the device being used. A numbing cream or local anesthesia can be utilized during your treatment if requested; however, patients generally feel mild or no discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is complete, a treatment, like a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in, along with UV protection, since your skin will be more sensitive following the procedure. With Sylfirm X RF microneedling, your skin will be exposed to radiofrequency waves through the system’s advanced dual-wave technology. The Sylfirm X system utilizes both continuous waves and pulsed waves to help stimulate collagen production and assist in skin cell regeneration, leaving your skin rejuvenated.
What Can I Expect after Microneedling?
Following the procedure, you might have some swelling and redness for about one day; however, this should resolve on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase until you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should schedule about 4 – 6 maintenance sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin benefits.
I’ve been getting micro needling and chemical peels done regularly with Ashley the last few months to get my face wedding ready. I’m not exaggerating when I say she has literally changed my life! I’ve suffered from acne since I was a preteen and now you almost can’t tell I ever had it - my skin looks and feels SO good! She also gave me great product recommendations and education on what to do at home to maintain my results. She creates such a comforting and enjoyable experience - I always look forward to seeing her! If you’re looking for a great esthetician, look no further and go see Ashley!
As someone is there thirty’s with acne, I didn’t think I would ever have clear skin. Ashley changed that. She was incredibly respectful and created a skin care and facial routine for me that has left my skin clear and smooth. 5 out of 5 would recommend her for anyone looking to bring out the best in their skin.

Can other treatments be combined with microneedling?
In the microneedling process, channels are created that help other treatments to penetrate the deeper layers. This is why microneedling is often combined with other treatments, like special serums. Microneedling has become popular due to its regenerative potential. During your initial consultation at our Highlands Ranch, CO office, a team member will explain which treatments may be performed alongside microneedling and which best fit your skin goals.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients need 3 – 6 treatments to get their best results. However, the number of sessions you need will depend on your skin's condition and your goals. Microneedling can be performed safely every 4 – 6 weeks. During your initial consultation, our aesthetic team can estimate the number of treatments you want after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. When you have reached your goal, we may suggest scheduling maintenance treatments every six months.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
Mostly, microneedling is appropriate for all skin types and tones. The microinjuries created by microneedling are minor, so there are few side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be performed on most areas of skin, including the face, neck, arms, chest, thighs, and calves. Microneedling isn't recommended if you've been on Accutane in the last few months or if you have an active skin infection, herpes simplex, or and open wound. In addition, you might not be able to get microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or getting radiation treatments.
