What is RF Microneedling?
When signs of aging creep in, many people run straight to the plastic surgeon. The loss of confidence that accompanies loose skin and wrinkles can often go double for acne scars. The unfortunate news is that after age 30, our bodies begin to produce less collagen, causing our facial skin to decline in quality.
Thankfully, RF microneedling treatments can combat the signs of aging by improving fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. This results in a firmer, smoother, and more consistent skin surface. Treatments use a combination of radiofrequency energy with traditional microneedling. The RF energy produced by this device is delivered using tiny micro-needles for maximum absorption into your skin. RF energy is harnessed to heat underlying skin layers, causing constriction and tightening through soft tissue coagulation. This radiofrequency causes the elastin cells to regenerate and collagen production to increase, which tightens and rejuvenates the skin.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
The treatment is pretty straightforward. During your session, the RF microneedling device will create micro-injuries on your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process and encouraging it to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike other similar treatments, this process can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body. The entire process can typically be done in under an hour, but treatment time may vary depending on your targeted area(s).
What Does RF Microneedling Address?
RF microneedling is an excellent choice for those struggling with mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks. Unlike certain questionable over-the-counter products, RF microneedling has been proven to deliver beauty benefits in the short and long term. Unlike surgery, this device is minimally invasive and causes little discomfort. No downtime is required after a session.
What Results Can I Expect?
You may notice some immediate skin rejuvenation results right after your visit. Your skin will feel refreshed and radiant. Over the course of the next 4-6 weeks, you should notice a full collagen-rebuilding effect take place, with the best results usually seen at 12 weeks. The number of sessions you have will play a big role in how soon you see results and how long these results will last.
Am I a candidate for Microneedling?
RF microneedling can be used on all skin types. It only uses radiofrequency energy, so there is no risk of thermal damage to the epidermis.
