Radiofrequency microneedling combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy in one treatment. Microneedling can help rejuvenate your appearance without surgery or extreme invasive procedures. Radiofrequency microneedling offers several benefits and greater results because it essentially delivers two treatments in one.
What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
The microneedling process uses tiny needles that penetrate the skin, stimulating elastin and collagen production. Radiofrequency microneedling uses radiofrequency, or RF, along with traditional microneedling. Simultaneously, the radiofrequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin. Radiofrequency waves penetrate deeper than traditional microneedling, which further increases collagen production far beyond the surface of the skin.
Benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling
Fewer Lines and Wrinkles
This is the benefit that brings most people to this treatment. As we age, the loss of collagen combined with years of sun exposure causes wrinkles. Radiofrequency microneedling increases collagen and elastin production, which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
As you age, your skin loses elasticity which causes your pores to appear larger. A series of radiofrequency microneedling treatments can improve skin texture and quality. Because of skin firming that occurs around the pores, you’ll notice smaller pore sizes and unclogged pores.
RF microneedling increases your skin texture as well. Collagen is a natural filler. For example, collagen is responsible for the fullness of your lips. Increased collagen lifts, tightens, and plumps up your skin.
Improved Product Absorption
Generally, you’ll have radiofrequency microneedling along with other treatments. If you choose topical treatments, you may find them to be more effective. Microneedling opens up the pores, and the tiny punctures from the treatment allow active serums and skin care products to be absorbed more readily into the skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment. You’ll come to the office the day of the treatment which should last anywhere from 45 mins to an hour. Some patients experience mild pinpoint bleeding and slight bruising after the procedure. More typically, the skin is mildly red for approximately 24 hours.
Little Recovery Time
RF microneedling requires little recovery time. After your procedure, you will be given instructions on how to care for your skin. You will need to avoid makeup for a few days. Sunscreen use is stressed during this post-treatment period.
Better Texture and Tone
RF microneedling can address issues like uneven skin tone and poor skin texture. Because the procedure triggers your body’s natural healing ability, your skin will appear younger and healthier in the weeks following the treatment.
It Leaves Natural Results
If you want results that look natural, RF microneedling is a great option. The results improve over time, as your body produces more collagen. No one will know you’ve had the procedure unless you tell them yourself!
It’s a Natural Option
RF microneedling uses modern technology, but the process of collagen induction therapy is completely natural. The treatment simply triggers your body’s ability to improve your skin, rather than changing your skin artificially.
Once you get the results that you want, which can take 3 to 6 treatments, you can expect your results to last for up to 6 to 12 months. As we age, and as results begin to fade, maintenance treatments may be needed.
More Effective Than Traditional Microneedling
Traditional microneedling offers good results, but radiofrequency microneedling offers better results than the traditional method. You’ll see faster results, and enjoy younger-looking skin.
