Microneedling Q & A

What is micro-needling?

Micro-needling, also called collagen induction therapy, is an innovative aesthetic treatment that stimulates your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. These two proteins make up the dermal layer of your skin and provide strength and elasticity.

During the cosmetic treatment, the skin care specialists at Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center use a special micro-needling tool that creates thousands of micro-channels in the surface layer of your skin. These wounds stimulate your skin’s natural healing process, which includes activating your skin to add new collagen and elastin.

By increasing production of collagen and elastin, micro-needling tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates your skin, as well as reduces the appearance of:

Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Crepey skin
  • Scarring (surgical and acne scars)

When it comes to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals, few plastic surgeons can match Dr. Sasaki’s combination of expertise, compassion, and experience. He’s a distinguished educator, and a renowned innovator whose work and research have influenced a generation of plastic surgeons.

What treatments are combined with micro-needling?

To improve your aesthetic results, the nationally and internationally known cosmetic plastic surgeon combines micro-needling with other treatments. 

In fact, Dr. Sasaki is the lead investigator and consultant for both platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and micro-needling procedures. He has published his findings and shared his techniques and results as a visiting professor throughout the country and around the world. 

By creating thousands of micro-channels in the skin, Dr. Sasaki finds micro-needling serves as the perfect delivery system for:

  • Cosmeceuticals
  • Bioactive peptides
  • Growth factors
  • PRP

Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center also offers AquaGold® micro-needling treatment, which delivers hyaluronic acid — the same substance in dermal fillers — into the micro-channels created by the micro-needling tool. 

Combining micro-needling with other treatments and therapies enhances the effects and your end results.  

What is radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling?

Dedicated to providing patients with the most innovative aesthetic treatments available, Sasaki Advanced Aesthetic Medical Center also offers RF micro-needling with INTRAcel™. 

The state-of-the-art therapy penetrates deep into the skin to revive and rejuvenate the natural production of collagen and elastin for smoother, firmer skin. RF micro-needling enhances tissue lifting and tightening. 

Dr. Sasaki is the lead investigator and consultant for MNRF (micro-needling RF) with platelets and barrier integrity and has created manuscripts and taught courses to physicians throughout the world.
