Radiofrequency has the ability to produce heat and works by warming the deeper layers of the skin, thereby encouraging and enhancing the production of collagen and elastin. This leads to the production of new cells and further contributes to firmer, thicker skin that looks increasingly youthful.

What is Radiofrequency Micro Needling?

Radiofrequency Microneedling is approved by the FDA and is one of the latest technologies developed for anti-aging. It is proven to be safe and effectively make your skin look younger and more radiant. Radiofrequency Microneedling tightens the skin and helps in eliminating wrinkles and fine lines as well as acne scars, stretch marks, and big pores.

How Does Radiofrequency Micro Needling Work?

It heats tissues at a deep level and improves the tone and structure of your skin. During radiofrequency micro-needling, the microneedles hurt the skin and create minuscule injuries which force the body to heal naturally and produce new collagen.

What Happens During Radiofrequency Microneedling

Before the treatment begins, a topical numbing agent is administered around the area to be treated in order to make you feel more comfortable. The microneedling device, which is outfitted with a number of needles, delivers dozens of pricks that penetrate three millimeters into your skin.

Together, the needles and the high temperature stimulates your skin to an extent that it produces more collagen that repairs tissue and hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin. The device also expels radiofrequency energy into your skin to fade out scars and wrinkles, resulting in a supple and more complete youthful appearance.

The duration of one session is about 20 minutes, and you may require a minimum of three sessions in all to get optimal results. Touch-up procedures are also a common practice to maintain your healthy look.

RF Micro Needling and Skin Healing

Radiofrequency technology is an innovative treatment method that utilizes rapid penetration of insulated microneedles into the targeted area without causing any sort of extensive damage to the epidermis of your skin.

Through the insertion of microneedles, a tiny column is created which facilitates healing in the skin and brings about a factor of growth that drives the mechanism of natural recovery. This effect is similar to that of peeling, but with a minimal impact on the epidermis. At the same time, the device emits a high-tension RF pulse onto the area that requires treatment.

There is a method for invasive radiofrequency microneedling where dermal heating and microneedling are combined to induce micro-wounds that provide ablation. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, increasing fibroblast activity and the overall health of the skin.

A non-invasive radiofrequency is also used and involves superficial fractional RF waves that consists of blunt electrodes that generally rest on the skin to deliver treatments such as skin resurfacing. These treatments are safe and highly effective in producing youthful, vibrant skin. It provides excellent benefits without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
