Microneedling is the cosmetic rejuvenation of the skin by creating micro-wounds allowing the skin to use its natural healing process in specified areas to produce collagen, making the treated skin look tighter, smoother, and youthful. The innovative addition of radiofrequency waves has further enhanced this treatment by allowing the waves to reach deeper under the skin, providing much more dramatic results.
RF microneedling has become a popular option for skin rejuvenation due to the efficacy of providing incredible results, as well as allowing for zero downtime as it is minimally invasive. If you are looking for a skin rejuvenation option that guarantees results and does not require any downtime for recovery, microneedling with RF waves is the perfect option!
Microneedling with RF has proven to provide faster and more dramatic results than just microneedling, so depending on how dramatic of results you are looking for, yes microneedling with RF could be better for your desired results. If you are hoping for a more natural or gradual approach to skin rejuvenation, then microneedling might not be what you want. Many people find that RF microneedling works better for them as it goes beyond just smoothing and tightening the facial skin, and is able to also reduce the appearance of stretch marks, scarring, or any other imperfections that lay deeper in the skin.
Even though RF microneedling is able to provide incredible results that are long-lasting, most clients will need around 2-4 sessions before they are able to achieve their desired results. It is safe to receive the next treatment after healing from the previous one for at least 3 weeks, and after all of the sessions are complete, results can be fully realized after a couple of months. The results from these initial treatments will last for up to a year, so many clients will opt to have maintenance treatments done once a year to ensure that the results continue to persist.
There is not much-required recovery time for microneedling with RF, as most clients will be able to return home immediately after the treatment and continue about their days as normal, but there are some after-care tips to keep in mind to ensure that the skin heals properly.
It is common to experience some discomfort and swelling, so many doctors will recommend applying ice packs to the area that was treated to help, and using an antibiotic cream that your doctor may have prescribed. Clients should fully recover within a week of the treatment, with any redness, dryness, or shedding of skin fully disappearing within the first few days after the treatment. Strenuous activities and most facial skin products should be avoided at that time. Clients will be recommended to only use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer on the skin and should avoid the use of makeup at that time as well.
Microneedling with radiofrequency waves provides all of the benefits that normal microneedling does, as well as all of the added benefits that RF waves are able to offer. Normal microneedling is used for its benefits of smoothing the texture of the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. The production of collagen allows the skin to heal quicker from the treatment and helps the skin to become firm and tight, providing a beautiful youthful glow.
Other benefits of microneedling include reducing the appearance of scarring and stretch marks, evening out the tone of the skin and reducing the appearance of age spots caused by hyperpigmentation, and shrinking the overall size of pores.
The addition of radiofrequency waves enhances all of these benefits by penetrating deeper into the dermal layers than normal microneedling is capable of. More dramatic effects are experienced with the combination of microneedling and RF waves, which means that the results will become noticeable much faster, allowing for even more beautiful results than if only one type of treatment was used.
