Microneedling with Radiofrequency

ABOUT MICRONEEDLING with Radiofrequency

Combination microneedling and radiofrequency fractional treatment that smooths, tightens and contours skin while stimulating collagen production.

Microneedling with radiofrequency, like other microneedling procedures, creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Other methods of microneedling utilize PRP, stem cell growth factor, and other serums to penetrate deep into the skin and further enhance results.

After cleansing the skin surface and applying a topical anesthetic, the microneedling device is gently pressed against the treatment area to create numerous, tiny, micro-channels. Microneedling with radiofrequency uses the added technology of flow needles to deliver RF energy into the dermis. The RF energy heats the dermis which not only encourages collagen growth but tissue tightening as well.

Recovery Notes

Most patients experience minor redness after the procedure as well as skin dryness and shedding which are all expected. There is no downtime with microneedling with radiofrequency however if the procedure is being done in preparation for an event, it is advised to schedule treatment at least 1 week prior to ensure adequate time for redness to dissipate.

Ideal Candidate

Microneedling with radiofrequency is ideal for someone that wishes to improve the appearance of minor skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, scarring, and uneven skin tone and texture. This technique is also very safe for darker skin tones in contrast to many other skin rejuvenation techniques.

Not Recommended For

Microneedling with radiofrequency is not recommended for those who have used Accutane within six months, have open wounds or a skin infection, have had radiation treatment within the last year, are pregnant, or have a history of keloid scars.

Side Effects

Microneedling with radiofrequency is generally well tolerated but erythema may be seen after treatment, lasting for 2-3 days. Skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy but this will normally resolve in 12-48 hours. Treated skin may be more prone to hyperpigmentation so strict adherence to photoprotection is advised for a week after.
