Microneedling is an extremely popular treatment that stimulates collagen and elastic tissue remodeling. Skin becomes smoother, clearer, and tighter, as it heals itself from the tiny pricks of needles. An innovative procedure called “RF Microneedling”, which combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy, has become the latest anti- aging skin rejuvenation option.
RF microneedling includes radiofrequency energy to the traditional microneedling treatment. By delivering the RF energy under the skin, RF microneedling allows for safe targeting of the deep dermis, without the risk of damage to the skin surface. Allowing for effective tightening of the skin and remodeling of scar tissue, it works great for acne scars and stretch marks.
RF microneedling is beneficial for nearly all skin types. It is a minimally-invasive technique that is ideal for you if you wish to reduce the appearance of:
Acne or acne scars Poor skin texture Sun damage Lines and creases Enlarged pores Stretch marks
Most patients will benefit most from 2-3 treatments, spaced about 3-4 weeks apart. Results may vary from patient to patient depending upon a variety of factors including the severity of the underlying condition being treated. RF microneedling can be performed with significantly less discomfort, downtime and risk than other skin damage treatments.
What can I expect after the treatment?
Your skin is typically mildly red and slightly swollen for the first day or two following the treatment. There is little or no discomfort after the procedure, most patients can return to regular activity on the day after the treatment. Since the procedure involves the creation of small microchannels in the skin, avoid wearing makeup for at least 3 days after as best practice.
