All About Microneedling

Did you know the fastest growing in demand treatment is micro‑needling? What is it and why is there so much buzz about it?

Microneedling is a non‑surgical treatment that uses tiny stainless steel needles to stimulate your body’s own collagen‑producing capabilities to speed up cellular turnover, resurface your texture, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm up skin, and even fade old acne scars and hyperpigmentation, leaving you with stunning results. Part of the hype is that it’s safe for all ethnicities, and there is really no downtime, which gives all of us something to brag about! 

Now, not all in‑office microneedling is the same. 

There are two main types: pen‑based and Radiofrequency, or RF based micro‑needling. RF is more advanced in its results, using heat to cause collagen contraction, leading to better remodeled collagen and skin. Also noteworthy is that fewer treatments are needed and you aren’t going to be a bloody mess. That said, there is only one pen‑based micro‑needling treatment that is unique and worthy of your attention, which we will show you below, so keep reading.

In this guide we’ll be looking at the different micro‑needling treatments available that can leave you with a more uniform, radiant, and younger‑looking complexion!


*Individual Results May Vary


Morpheus 8 is the first ever head to toe microneedling solution. In fact, it is known as the gold standard of RF microneedling! The combination of Radio‑frequency and microneedling, plus its unique ability to go to 7mm deep in the tissue (all others on the market only go to 3mm), make this the Olympics of skin rejuvenation, you can’t live without!

The microneedles send RF energy deep into the skin. Small lesions are made in the skin, causing the skin’s natural healing response of collagen production to start up, leaving your skin fresh, supple and tightened WITHOUT the downtime of lasers! Don’t worry, topical numbing is applied for your comfort, and the treatment takes just 30 minutes!

For the face, Morpheus8 can help treat sagging skin, uneven skin tone & texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and even sun damage. For the body, Morpheus8 can create full body tightening, smooth cellulite, and improve texture. You can expect to see subtle effects within weeks after your first treatment, with further improvement through a series of three treatments over three months.

Your skin will be left tightened, smoothed, fuller, AND it’s safe to use on all skin types and skin tones. See why we love Morpheus8 so much? 


Exceed is the FIRST dual‑indicated, FDA‑cleared microneedling system for the treatment of both facial wrinkles and facial acne scar reduction.  Because of its credentials, it’s making other tools such as dermal rollers and other microneedling pens irrelevant, and is the only pen‑based microneedling treatment endorsed by @theskinsaintofficial.

The goal of Exceed is to minimize epidermal trauma. It uses 6 of the sharpest medical grade stainless steel needles to reduce surface tension and uses a flexible needle plate that allows the needles to release from the skin easier, resulting in less trauma. It’s also HIGHLY customizable with micro‑depth adjustments, ultra‑low vibration and eleven speed settings.

If you suffer from wrinkles or acne, Exceed will show you amazing results with minimal downtime. You may experience pink to red skin for 24‑48 hours after a treatment, but this can easily be soothed with moisturizer. This is currently our FAVORITE  microneedling pen on the market, so you’ll definitely want to give it a try!

Glass Skin Facial

The Glass Skin Facial was exclusively created by @theskinsaintoffical and is a super unique treatment that will leave you with glowing, smooth skin that lasts! It’s basically a real life selfie filter that reduces pores and redness while increasing hydration in just one hour long treatment.

This facial uses resurfacing modalities combined with nutrients and your own PRFM (platelet‑rich fibrin matrix) from your blood. Using a mini injector and very fine micro‑needles, this solution is used to stimulate collagen, help fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and improve texture and tone. Using PRFM  can also repair scarring, and give you a beautiful anti‑aging glow.

There’s no social downtime and results can be seen immediately and last four weeks or even longer! This is definitely the treatment for you if you’re wanting flawless, glowly glass‑like skin! 


Micro‑Tox or skin botox, creates glowing, glasslike skin within days. Painless microneedles smaller than a human hair are tapped into the skin, infusing a cocktail of neuromodulators, filler, vitamins or PRP. Sounds like the kind of cocktail we want! 

This is a super fast procedure that can be done all over the face in just a few minutes, improving the appearance of skin immediately. You’ll find improved complexion, reduced pores, oil, fine lines and redness and increased hydration. Results are shown 24‑48 hour post‑treatment and it lasts about 4‑8 weeks. 

If you are allergic to metals including gold, this treatment isn’t recommended for you as the needles are stainless steel with gold. Otherwise, this is one of our favorite treatments right now! 

Secret™ RF

Secret RF is an amazing RF fractional microneedling system that delivers tailored energy to improve fine lines, wrinkles and scars from the inside out. By using gold plated micro‑needles, precisely controlled RF energy is sent into deep layers of the dermis to avoid damage to the skin surface. The result is new collagen and elastin production with less damage than a fractionated laser.

With minimal to no downtime, Secret RF is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. This system can stimulate collagen, tighten skin, minimize pores, reduce scarring & acne scarring, lighten pigmentation and reduce scars and stretch marks.

Collagen production and remodeling are seen after 4‑6 weeks and it is recommended to have at least three treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart.
