Microneedling with RF
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a handheld device to create thousands of micro-injuries in the skin. These wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response and increase the production of collagen in the treatment area, resulting in the reduced appearance of acne, acne scars, wrinkles, skin laxity, and irregular skin tone. Results are significantly enhanced when radiofrequency is combined with microneedling. Radiofrequency energy allows the treatment to penetrate further into the skin, thus creating more profound and more dramatic results. The RF energy heats the underlying layers, causing significant tightening of the tissues and increasing the production of collagen and elastin. Microneedling with RF is safe for all ethnicities and skin types and requires little to no downtime. Most patients undergo two to three treatments initially, and touch-up sessions can be safely performed as necessary.
