What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin therapy that uses a device equipped with dozens of tiny needles to create micro-wounds on the surface of your skin. Your body responds to these wounds by sending in more skin-strengthening collagen, elastin, and other healing compounds to completely revitalize your complexion.
Magnifique Med Spa takes basic microneedling to a whole new level, offering options like:
- Gold tip facials
- Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
- Microneedling with hyaluronic acid
You might also choose to enhance your skin’s look with chemical peels that are expertly applied in the days or weeks before or after your microneedling session.
What types of skin concerns can Microneedling address?
Microneedling gives your complexion a comprehensive refresh. It’s effective in reducing the signs of aging by stimulating collagen production. Collagen is a major protein in your skin.
Concerns that microneedling can address include:
- Sun damage
- Large pores
- Mild scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone or texture
Microneedling is incredibly effective in creating smooth, enviable skin!

What is VirtueRF Microneedling?
RF stands for radiofrequency. The VirtueRF microneedling device has super fine needles that create micro-wounds in your skin. The device also delivers radiofrequency energy to delve into the deeper layers of your skin. This RF boosts your body’s ability to create more collagen and improves healing time.
What is Microneedling with PRP or Hyaluronic Acid?
One of the benefits of microneedling is that it makes your skin especially receptive to topical applications like PRP or hyaluronic acid. The microholes mean these substances can sink deep into the layers of your skin to promote healing and offer a more youthful look.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a derivative of your blood. The team takes a conventional sample from one of your veins and spins the blood down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, one of your blood’s major components. Platelets are responsible for wound healing and contain numerous growth and healing factors that benefit skin after microneedling.
The team then applies the PRP to your skin during and following your microneedling session, when the substance can do good work in helping your skin achieve greater radiance and resiliency.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance your body produces to attract moisture to tissues. It is responsible for youthful-looking skin. As you get older, your supply of hyaluronic acid diminishes, so during microneedling, your technician adds it to your procedure to restore your levels and create a youthful dewiness as well as fade wrinkles and lines.
