Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles and radio frequency waves at the same time to rejuvenate facial skin.
The treatment is a form of controlled skin injury. It stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, bu creating new collagen fibres that can benefit common skin issues, like acne, skin texture, scars and wrinkles, enlarged pores. The treatment is often compared to treatments with the use of a laser. However the radio frequency micro needling is minimally invasive in comparison to laser.
Benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling
First of all, radiofrequency is a type of energy from radio waves that creates a skin tightening effect. It delivers heat into the deep layers of the skin to makes it tighter overtime and to produce new collagen fibres. On the other hand, microneedling is the process of applying tiny needle type device into the skin to create plenty of mini holes in the epidermis to increase the efficiency of the skincare products.
Combining two procedures creates microneedling mini wound and transmits the heat into deeper layer of the skin. This in result creates healing response that helps to tackle your face skin and texture problems such as acne, scars, enlarged pores, wrinkles, or stretchmarks.
Skincare Effects of Radiofrequency Microneedling
The secret is ultrafine needles that puncture the skin to make very tiny holes as your skin heals from these little wounds. Your own body collagen production increase which results in tighter skin. Moreover, we can help the skin with the surface scarring and finenlines to be softened. It also helps to shrink the pores. Simply put, it’s the treatment that tightens your skin, but also reduce the wrinkles at the same time so it’s twofold affect.
The RF energy heats the underlying skin layers, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, and the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered deeply, it can produce faster, more dramatic results. This method works well for removing wrinkles around the eyes, as well as for lifting the skin and improving its elasticity.
What to expect ?
To make you more comfortable before the procedure we apply the topical numbing cream . Then RF micro needling device is used on the areas of the skin. We usually use the few different depths (between 1-3) in one area together with the insulated needles and the heat.
One session takes about an hour or less depending on the on the problem of the skin that is being treated.
Usually at least three to six sessions are recommended for optimal results, and then usually once every six months to maintain the effect.
Although the microneedling with RF procedure is extremely safe some mild some affects are expected.
These can include redness and swelling around the treated side. Also the feeling warm similar to sunburn.
