What is RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy for the non-invasive treatment of lines, wrinkles, skin laxity and depressed scars. It is one of the leading medical systems for lifting, skin tightening and skin rejuvenation. The radiofrequency energy combines heat with microneedling penetrating the deeper layers of the skin and dermis to create the skin’s own healing response by stimulating collagen production and induce skin rejuvenation, making it a more effective treatment than microneedling alone. This unique delivery of energy allows for optimal results on all skin types. RF Microneedling is FDA approved and is trusted by clinics worldwide. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin declines, resulting in loose, sagging skin, creating particular concerns around the cheek, jawline, neck and eye area. Suitable for all skin types and tone, this treatment can be used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands as a series of 3-6 treatments, each 4 weeks apart.
RF Microneedling can be used to treat:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Reduced skin laxity
- Uneven skin texture
- Scarring from condition such as chickenpox
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
It is important to note for optimal effectiveness it is suggested to have 3 to 6 treatments, spaced four weeks apart for best results. The number of treatments will ultimately depend upon how well you respond to the treatment and the severity of the skin issues.
