Benefits of Microneedling

Microneedling has many benefits, the most obvious being that it is a non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime. Patients are often surprised at how comfortable and quick each microneedling session is.This procedure entails your AVA MD treatment provider using a specialized tool to create micro-wounds into the skin. These fine needles will promote a healing process within your skin stimulating cell activity that works to rejuvenate the area.Microneedling can be used to target the following conditions:
  • Acne
  • Acne Scarring
  • Hair Loss
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Sagging Skin
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
In addition to fantastic results, one of the best attributes of microneedling is that it does not require downtime. Some patients may experience mild swelling or bruising after their procedure, but overall, microneedling is a non-invasive way to treat many cosmetic concerns without causing significant time constraints.

Types of Microneedling Treatments

With the increase in interest in microneedling, multiple techniques have become available. During your consultation, your AVA MD treatment provider will identify which method will suit your skin best. Details on the state of the art methods we offer are found below:

Traditional Microneedling

Traditional microneedling is a simple procedure. With this method, your skincare professional uses a hand-held device containing ultra-fine sterile needles, which create tiny holes in your skin. It is the healing process of these micro-wounds which ultimately results in the improvement of your skin concerns.. The dynamic self-healing capability of your body has the power to correct issues such as sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. Collagen production is also a benefit of traditional microneedling.


Intracel is a branded microneedling device that uses the added technology of radio-frequency to improve your skin’s appearance. The Intracel addresses the same conditions as the traditional technique, however, radiofrequency helps stimulate collagen production which reduces the signs of aging. The most common areas treated with Intracel are the face and neck, however, it can be administered to other areas of the body as well. 

Microneedling with PRP

This treatment is most commonly known as the “vampire facial.” This controversial procedure isn’t so controversial after all. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is used to enhance the benefits of microneedling to promote healthier skin. For this treatment, patients will have their blood drawn before it is placed into a centrifuge to isolate the plasma. During the procedure, your AVA MD provider will use microneedling to create micro-wounds in your skin. These are then filled with your own plasma to promote skin rejuvenation.
