RF Microneedling: How It Works

Beauty & Style

Microneedling paired with RF energy is a modern, go-to non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy that does it all! It’s used all over the globe to help individuals lift, plump, and tighten their skin, shrink pores, decrease wrinkles, and eliminate acne scars and other imperfections on their faces and other regions of their bodies.

Another significant advantage of Radiofrequency Microneedling is that it requires less downtime. It’s a non-surgical technique that generates mild pain and minimal downtime for the client.

The fractional Radiofrequency method treats the target region by rapidly penetrating many insulated micro-needles into the surface of the skin, the epidermis.

When they reach the proper depth in the skin, the microneedles discharge laser energy under the surface of the skin.

For 1-2 days after the treatment, the skin may seem sunburned. Over the following 3 months, the skin responds by producing new elastin and collagen.

RF Microneedling is a real game changer in skin regeneration – big results with minimal downtime!

However, before deciding to use RF Microneedling to treat your skin issues, below are five things you should know:

1) How Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Work?

A cluster of thin tiny needles penetrates the skin at the optimal depth for collagen stimulation for that location. The rf radiation is subsequently discharged into the layer of the skin. RF  Microneedling works by providing direct deep stimulation into your skin. This stimulates collagen production.

A thermal injury is formed with small columns by the movement of the micro-needles. This insult makes the body respond and enter a healing state. This, in turn, causes collagen production.

Our laser expert would pick a suitable depth of microneedle penetration based on the client’s skin laxity and problems. Microneedle depths may range from 0.5mm-4.0mm.

Penetration of the skin using RF  Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural reaction to generate new collagen-rich tissue. The production of new collagen-rich tissue tightens your skin and minimizes wrinkles, scars, fine lines, and stretch marks. This enhances the overall look and texture of the skin.

If you have acne, RF Microneedling may decrease oil production in the skin by reducing the sebaceous gland. Pores, scars, and textures may all be improved. This is quite beneficial for aggressive acne and acne scars.

2) What Issues Can Be Treated Using Microneedling?

Radiofrequency Microneedling is most usually utilized to treat conditions that were previously reserved for surgical treatments. Most facial locations, along with body areas, may be treated to decrease the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

  • Forehead wrinkles – Frown lines, fine lines, skin creasing, and wrinkles in the forehead region
  • Wrinkles and droopy eyes – Creepy under-eye skin, loose eyelids, fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles
  • Tightening of Neck Skin – Lift and tighten skin laxity in the neck region
  • Tightening of Arm Skin – The iconic bat wings may be tightened
  • Acne scars are marks on your cheeks or any other part of the face produced by acne and other diseases
  • Sun Damaged Skin – Marks left by extreme dark spots or sunburn produced by frequent sun exposure
  • Uneven Skin Tone – brown tone caused by acne or sun damage
  • Stretch marks – may be addressed in almost any part of the body
  • Hyperhidrosis – Underarm sweating

3) Rf Microneedling Risks

Because RF Microneedling is a non-surgical technique, the downtime and risk are negligible. Not only that, but the pain associated with Radiofrequency Microneedling is almost non-existent.

Among the most frequent adverse effects seen by most individuals is mild skin redness and irritation. However, usual skin irritation lasts between 2 and 24 hours after the operation.

4) What Occurs Following The Treatment?

As previously stated, recuperation and downtime in a Radiofrequency Microneedling operation are low. Most people can resume their normal lifestyles shortly following the procedure. However, it’s normal to feel some irritation and redness in the treated region from a couple of hours to the following day.

We advocate the liberal use of sunscreen lotion since the skin is healing and is more sensitive to sunburn soon after the treatment.

5) When Would I See the Results?

A Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment may often generate effects within a few days, but additional results emerge as the body starts to create collagen.

The tightening impact and ultimate effects will occur gradually over 6 months, which is the period it takes for the skin to totally reconstruct itself.
