Effect of Microneedling on Wrinkles


In my years of experience in the aesthetics industry, I’ve been asked about microneedling countless times. It’s a popular treatment that has gained significant traction in recent years, and for good reason. Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that can address a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and uneven skin tone.

As an aesthetic director, I’ve had the opportunity to work with industry experts and stay up-to-date with the latest research and techniques. One expert whose opinion I highly value is Dr. Anthony Youn, a renowned plastic surgeon and holistic beauty advocate. Dr. Youn has included microneedling on his list of approved holistic beauty treatments, citing its safety, effectiveness, and holistic attributes.

In the rest of the article, I will delve deeper into why microneedling is considered one of Dr. Youn’s best aesthetic treatments and explore its numerous benefits.

In the vibrant city of Singapore, a woman is experiencing the cutting-edge Gold RF Microneedling treatment at Wellaholic. This advanced treatment is designed to help individuals achieve their skincare goals by using a combination of radio frequency (RF) and microneedling technologies to rejuvenate and firm the skin. The Gold RF Microneedling treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process and stimulates collagen production. The RF energy is then delivered through these channels, further enhancing the skin’s firmness and texture. This dual-action process results in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin, enhancing the individual’s overall appearance. The effectiveness of the Gold RF Microneedling treatment is widely recognized. Many customers have reported visible improvements in their skin texture, tone, and firmness after just a few sessions, making it a popular choice for those seeking a safe and effective skincare treatment. The woman undergoing the treatment is in the capable hands of Wellaholic’s professional staff. Their expertise and dedication to customer satisfaction ensure a positive and comfortable experience throughout the treatment process.

Microneedling with Radiofrequency: The Morpheus Technique

As someone who’s been in the aesthetics industry for over a decade, I’ve seen my fair share of innovative treatments. One that’s been making waves lately is Morpheus8.

It’s an advanced microneedling technique that combines the traditional method with radiofrequency energy. During the treatment, tiny punctures are created in the skin while delivering that RF energy deep into the dermis. This powerful combo stimulates collagen production and tissue remodeling way more effectively than regular microneedling.

But that’s not all – the RF energy also provides an immediate skin tightening effect by contracting those collagen fibres. Talk about a two-for-one deal! Morpheus8 can tackle a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to skin laxity, acne scarring, and even stretch marks. It’s suitable for all skin types and requires minimal downtime, with visible results popping up within a few days to weeks after the treatment.

So if you’re looking for a comprehensive solution to rejuvenate your skin, Morpheus8 might just be the game-changer you’ve been waiting for. Feel free to book a consultation with me, and we can discuss if this treatment is right for your specific needs.

Wellaholic's Matrixyl-Infused Microneedling Treatment is a game-changer. This innovative treatment combines the power of Matrixyl peptides and microneedling to deliver impressive results.

Microneedling vs Laser Treatments

As someone with over a decade of experience in the aesthetics industry, I’ve seen firsthand the amazing results that both microneedling and laser treatments can deliver. But which one is right for you? Let me break it down.

Microneedling is like a little workout for your skin. It uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries, which might sound scary, but it’s actually a great way to kickstart your body’s natural healing process. This stimulates collagen production, giving you a fresher, more youthful glow. The best part? Minimal downtime and fewer side effects compared to lasers.

Laser treatments, on the other hand, are like a targeted strike against specific skin concerns. Whether it’s pigmentation, broken blood vessels, or something else, lasers use light energy to zap those issues without damaging the surrounding area. The results can be pretty dramatic and long-lasting, but you might need to plan for some recovery time and potential side effects.

So, which one should you choose? It really depends on your individual skin goals. Sometimes, we even combine the two for a one-two punch! But don’t worry, I’m here to guide you through the process and find the perfect treatment plan for your unique needs.

Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its firmness and elasticity

The Science Behind Microneedling and Collagen Production

As an aesthetic director, I often get asked about microneedling. It’s a popular treatment that uses tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which boosts collagen production.

Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its firmness and elasticity. As we age, collagen levels decrease, leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling helps reverse this by stimulating new collagen growth. The micro-channels created by the needles also allow skincare products to penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing their effects. I’ve seen amazing results with microneedling, from improved texture and tone to a more youthful, radiant complexion.

The microneedles used in Gold RF Microneedling are ultra-fine, where we can adjust the needle size between 0.5mm to 3.0mm

Gold RF vs Morpheus8

Let me break down the differences between two popular options – Secret RF and Morpheus8 – for you.

Both use radiofrequency energy combined with microneedling to boost collagen production and improve skin texture. But they have some key differences. Secret RF has adjustable gold-plated needles that can go from 0.5 to 3.5mm deep. It also offers non-insulated, semi-insulated, and two tip sizes (25 or 64 pins) for targeting specific areas.

Morpheus8, on the other hand, goes way deeper – up to 8mm! This makes it great for tackling things like acne scars and sagging skin. But that deeper penetration also means a slightly higher risk of hitting fat pads and causing minor volume loss.

So which one’s right for you? It really depends on your specific skin concerns, sensitivity levels, and the size of the area you want to treat. For example, if you’re dealing with deeper wrinkles or scarring, Morpheus8 might be the way to go. But if you just want a general collagen boost, Secret RF could be perfect.

The bottom line? There’s no one-size-fits-all solution.

The Cost of Gold RF Microneedling in Singapore

I understand the importance of finding the right treatment for your needs and budget. When it comes to Gold RF Microneedling, the cost can vary quite a bit depending on the clinic and the specific device used.

At SL Aesthetic Clinic, for instance, they use the Sylfirm X device, and their prices start at $399 per session. On the other hand, at Wellaholic, where I work, we offer Gold RF Microneedling treatments starting at just $199 per session, with package options available for those looking to save a bit more.

Bio Aesthetic Laser Clinic has a great first trial price of $168 for their Microneedling treatment, with regular single session prices at $298. And at Imago Aesthetic, their IMA SX Dual Wave RF Microneedling treatment starts at $499, with the total cost depending on factors like the treatment area, tools used, and the number of recommended sessions.

So, as you can see, the cost of Gold RF Microneedling in Singapore can range quite a bit, from around $200 to $500 per session. But most clinics do offer package deals for multiple treatments, which can help you save a bit and achieve those optimal results you’re after.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why is microneedling so great?

Microneedling is fantastic because it naturally boosts collagen production in your skin. The treatment uses fine needles to create micro-injuries, which triggers your body’s healing response. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Microneedling can effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and even stretch marks. It’s a minimally invasive treatment with little downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking to rejuvenate their skin. At Wellaholic, we’ve seen amazing results from microneedling and highly recommend it as part of a regular skincare routine.

Is microneedling the best treatment?

Microneedling is an effective treatment for many skin concerns, but it may not always be the best option. As an aesthetics expert, I consider each client’s unique needs and goals when recommending treatments. Factors like skin type, age, and the specific issues you want to address all play a role. While microneedling can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and boost collagen production, other treatments like chemical peels, laser resurfacing, or radiofrequency therapy might be more suitable in certain cases. The best approach is to have a consultation with a qualified professional who can assess your skin and develop a personalized treatment plan for optimal results.

Why is microneedling better than Botox?

I wouldn’t say microneedling is necessarily better than Botox. They are different treatments that address different concerns. Microneedling stimulates collagen production to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and fade scars and pigmentation. Botox temporarily relaxes muscles to smooth out wrinkles caused by facial expressions. The best treatment depends on your specific skin goals. I often recommend combining microneedling and Botox as part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation plan for optimal results. The key is to tailor treatments to your unique needs.

What serums can be used with Microneedling?

As an aesthetics expert, I recommend using hydrating serums with hyaluronic acid when microneedling. Hyaluronic acid helps plump and hydrate the skin, which is important after creating micro-injuries with the needles. Peptide serums are also great for boosting collagen and keeping skin firm. Ceramide serums help repair the skin barrier. For anti-ageing, look for serums with retinol or epidermal growth factors (EGF). Just avoid anything irritating like vitamin C, acids, or retinoids right after needling. Microneedling helps serums absorb better, so it’s the perfect time to nourish your skin.

Can I perform Microneedling for my neck?

Yes, you can definitely perform microneedling on your neck area. The skin on the neck is thinner and more delicate compared to the face, so I usually recommend using a shorter needle depth of 0.5mm to 0.75mm to minimize any discomfort or downtime. Microneedling helps to boost collagen production, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture on the neck. It’s a safe and effective treatment option for rejuvenating and tightening the neck skin.
