How Microneedling Combined with a Peel Works to Stimulate Skin and Make You Look Younger

The skin on your face is one of the first places to show signs of aging for several reasons. It’s exposed to harmful UV light more than almost everywhere else on your body, accelerating cellular breakdown. Your facial skin is also thinner and more delicate than elsewhere on your body. 

As a result, you’re more likely to develop fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots on your face before the rest of your body has signs of aging. 

Fortunately, you can protect your skin, and here at SculptMD, in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, our team offers personalized aesthetic treatments to revitalize your skin. After a thorough skin consultation, we might recommend combining microneedling and a chemical peel to slough away dry, dead skin cells and stimulate fresh collagen production to enhance the appearance of your skin.

Microneedling: what is it, and how does it work?

Microneedling is an innovative regenerative treatment that stimulates new collagen production in your skin. During the procedure, we use a sterile Cutera® radiofrequency microneedling device to make tiny punctures in your skin. 

Microneedling isn’t painful, but we can provide a topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort and help you stay relaxed during your treatment. 

These punctures are so microscopic that they heal almost instantaneously. However, together with the radiofrequency energy, they trigger your body’s natural healing response. Your body sends a flood of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your treated skin to create new cells and repair your skin. The new cells plump your skin from within, reducing the appearance of fine lines, loose skin, and scars. 

Chemical peel: what is it, and how does it work?

Chemical peels are powerful exfoliating treatments that remove old, dry, dull cells from your skin's surface. As your dead skin cells peel away, it reveals the new healthy skin underneath. 

We offer peels of varying strengths to accommodate your needs and reduce the appearance of:

During a chemical peel, your aesthetician applies a chemical agent to the skin on your face, chest, or neck. You might feel a tingling sensation while the peel works on your skin. After your peel, your skin will be a little pink or red, and depending on the strength of your peel, you could need 4-14 days for your skin to recover fully. Your aesthetician provides personalized aftercare instructions to help you take care of your skin following a chemical peel. 

Benefits of combining microneedling with a peel

Combining chemical peels and microneedling enhances your skin inside and out. We recommend that you have a chemical peel first to exfoliate the top layers of your skin. Then, 4-6 weeks later, you start your microneedling treatments to boost collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. 

Microneedling is more effective and provides deeper penetration after the older layers of your skin are gone. We might recommend that you have a series of microneedling treatments to achieve your desired results. 

Now that we can start to get back out into the world, we want to help you look and feel your best. Give us a call or schedule a consultation online today to find out if microneedling and chemical peels are the right treatments for you.
