Microneedling uses very tiny needles to cause controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This triggers your skin to produce collagen and elastin, the building blocks of new, fresh skin. Microneedling also allows topical treatments applied to the skin to be more effectively absorbed. Microneedling reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and produces younger-looking skin, minimizing acne scars and any other scarring, age spots, and stretch marks.
The overall effect is fresher, more glowing skin and a revitalized face. There’s no downtime required after microneedling, and you’ll see some of the positive effects within a couple of days. However, the most dramatic results will not be visible until four to six weeks after treatment, once your body produces fresh collagen and completes rebuilding the skin.
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a combination treatment for your skin. RF can have a strong skin tightening benefit. The microneedling technique creates many micro incisions; then, the RF delivers thermal energy deep within the skin tissue. This stimulates collagen but causes no damage to the surrounding tissue. RF is delivered in multiple passes at varying depths, providing a three-dimensional coverage over the face, lifting and tightening the skin from within.
RF microneedling is a cutting-edge advancement in tightening skin and reducing wrinkles. Like typical microneedling, there is no downtime. You’ll see results within a few days, but the real results come as your body begins to produce collagen. The tightening effect and final results appear gradually over six months, as your skin starts looking more and more youthful as time passes and wrinkles continue to diminish.
