RF microneedling reduces wrinkles, scarring, and sagging skin with a minimally invasive technique. While traditional microneedling has been used for over 25 years, this latest procedure utilizes radiofrequency energy to promote collagen production.
The RF microneedling method uses ultrafine needles in conjunction with radiofrequency waves from LED lights to produce thermal energy. During the procedure, the skin is irritated, stimulating its repair response and promoting the body’s ability to create collagen naturally.
The procedure works by selectively applying heat to underlying layers of skin to reduce wrinkles, improve texture and firmness, and reduce scars. The depth of needle penetration and the amount of energy applied can also be adjusted.
Treatment times vary, but generally, the procedure takes 30 to 40 minutes. Prepare for three to four treatments spaced three- to eight weeks apart, allowing your skin to heal between treatments.
The RF microneedle treatment can be performed on almost any body area with wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring and is safe for all ages, genders, skin types, and tones. Candidates for treatment are young, in relatively good health, and show early signs of aging.
Results should be evident after three to six months, and they should last about a year. A touch-up session is recommended at least once a year to maintain desired results.
