Do you find your skin beginning to sag and lose its youthful luster? An RF Microneedling treatment may be just what your skin needs to get back to its original state.
Scheduling an appointment with a board-certified doctor such as a plastic surgeon can help determine if RF micro-needling or another cosmetic procedure is suitable for your and your desired skin care needs.
What is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses 14 extremely fine-tipped needles to puncture the epidermis or top layer of your skin. As a result, your body's innate healing mechanisms are activated, promoting the production of collagen and elastin, proteins required to keep your skin youthful and supple.
How does RF Microneedling Work?
RF Microneedling utilizes this same technique, except that it makes use of radiofrequency technology to drive heat into the middle layer of your skin.
The resulting outcome is the following:
- tightening of your skin by the contraction of what's known as the fibroseptal network that's responsible for your skin's tautness
- reduction of deepest wrinkles
- reduce acne scarring
Is RF Microneedling Right For You?
RF Microneedling may be the right form of treatment for you if you're looking for a non-surgical method of cosmetic enhancement for your skin. This minimally invasive treatment is ideal for treating the following symptoms of aging:
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
RF microneedling is also suitable for patients with:
- Fine lines
- Damage due to sun and UV radiation
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
Treatment for RF Microneedling is Safe When Performed by a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Depending on your desired cosmetic outcomes and severity of symptoms, a board-certified doctor can help develop an individualized treatment plan that's right for you.
Your overall health and current symptoms will be evaluated before starting the procedure—patients who are pregnant, have chronic skin conditions like psoriasis, or are immunosuppressed may not be good candidates for RF microneedling.
RF microneedling does not produce instant results. In order for the cosmetic treatment to be effective, your doctor may prescribe a series of procedures with a six-week interval between each session. This is done so there's enough time for your skin and body to re-produce lost collagen and other proteins required to rejuvenate your skin.
