Microneedling combined with radiofrequency energy has been a new non-surgical method for enhancing skin rejuvenation. Through this, the skin has reportedly been lifted, lightened, and the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles have been reduced. Let us address some important facts about this treatment.
What is micro-needling?
Micro-needling or collagen induction therapy is a regenerative skincare treatment. It reduces the appearance of acne scars, improves skin tones, and reduces fine lines. Unique equipment is used to create the micro-sized holes on the skin, on the area that needs treatment and this stimulates the body to naturally respond to regeneration. Soft tissue cells and collagen production increase, and the skin become tighter and smoother. Other treatments are combined with this, namely PRP, vitamin-infused serums, and radiofrequency.
How does RF micro-needling work?
This is a better innovation to the previously old micro-needling. In this process, micro-channels are created in the area requiring the treatment and RF energy is directed to the skin layer under proper safety. This is a revolutionary method of delivering thermal energy effectively through needle tips, without even damaging the skin surface. Before the invention of the RF, therapeutic energy was used for the treatment. This caused burns and extensive skin damages.
What issues can RF address?
With RF being a go-to rejuvenation option, it is appropriate for almost every skin type. This minimally invasive procedure is highly effective for different issues and it can address:
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and creases
- Sun damage and tough dark spots
- Rough skin texture
- Stretch marks
- Mild skin sagging
- Skin laxity
What happens during the treatment?
This treatment helps to build the affected area and induces regrowth of firmer and rejuvenated skin. They also induce collagen production and here is what you can expect from the treatment:
- The target area is cleansed thoroughly before proceeding
- A topical numbing agent is then applied onto the skin
- Then micro-sized channels are created
- The RF energy is directly channelized underneath the skin through using the micro-needling devices
How long do the results take?
The initial pore reduction and skin tightening results are visible almost instantly after the treatment. But detailed results are visible after 4-6 weeks of the treatment. However, results also depend upon the number of treatments one is undertaking.
