You can’t turn on the news or the internet about aesthetics without hearing about microneedling’s many advantages. This is a low-cost, low-risk approach to improving your appearance, and the results bear this out. Sure, why don’t we take it one step further? We proudly introduce radiofrequency microneedling, the new cutting-edge approach of the microneedling world that revolutionizes our approach to aesthetic treatments.
Radiofrequency microneedling, often known as RF microneedling, is the most recent development in this field. Combining established scientific methods with a fresh perspective takes it to a new level. Microneedling in its purest form, but with a little extra “oomph.”
However, how efficient is it in reality? First, let’s define RF microneedling and go over how it operates so that you understand its benefits and applications.
Microneedling With Radiofrequency: What Is It?
Microneedling with radio waves is called radiofrequency microneedling and is used to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin. Wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and general skin quality can all be improved with this method. It is commonly discussed as a cosmetic option for people with acne-prone or aging skin.
At Its Core, It’s Still A Microneedling Procedure
Microneedling is a technique where thousands of tiny puncture wounds are made over the skin using a handheld device. The skin is punctured with needles between 0.2 and 0.8 mm in diameter, resulting in tiny channels in the epidermis and dermis. Improved healing and less noticeable fine wrinkles are potential benefits of increased collagen formation and blood flow.
Radiofrequency microneedling differs little from conventional microneedling in that tiny needles are still used to puncture the skin, resulting in microscopic wounds.
What’s The Purpose of the Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency is an additional component of the standard microneedling procedure. Microneedling is a safe way for your doctor to puncture the skin, but it can’t go very deep. But radio frequency allows it to penetrate more deeply.
Your healthcare provider will utilize a pen-shaped device for RF microneedling; at the end of the pen are a few needles, and directly above the tool is the machinery that generates the radio waves. Radiowaves are emitted simultaneously as the needles puncture the skin, resulting in additional, superficial punctures without disrupting the deeper layers.
The more deeply we can inflict targeted micro-injuries, the more potent the results will be. It’s a step toward better skin in the future.
Benefits Of Microneedling
Suitable for use on all skin types and conditions, this therapy has many advantages. Since we at Evolution Health and Wellness provide this service, we have witnessed firsthand its life-changing effects on our clients.
As no two people are alike, neither are their skin types. Therefore, skincare should be the same. RF Microneedling can be tailored to your specifications as a bespoke service. Three layers of the skin may be reached, allowing it to treat and diminish even the deepest scars and wrinkles.
We can adjust the technology to maximize its effectiveness for your skin.
Reducing The Appearance of Acne Scars
Acne scars may be all that some people leave after a battle with acne. Scarring from acne can alter the look of your skin and make it appear less, even in tone and texture. The RF microneedling therapy can break the deep scarring, allowing the skin to recover independently and encouraging new collagen synthesis.
In connection with this topic, one of the advantages of RF Microneedling is its potential to increase collagen production. Making those tiny punctures in the skin actually helps the body mend itself. Collagen is responsible for the youthful glow of healthy skin.
Therefore, RF Microneedling is not only a therapeutic procedure but also an anti-aging procedure.
Smoothing Out Lines
The treatment’s focus on stimulating collagen formation means that wrinkles and fine lines will fade over time. The stimulation is amplified since the energy from the needles travels in all directions. Since it can reach all three layers of skin, deeper wrinkles can also be reduced (crepey, dermal, and adipose).
Exfoliating The Skin
Every skin type can benefit from this technology, even if you don’t have problems like acne scars or wrinkles. A treatment that sloughs off dead skin and restores youthful vitality to the skin! Its long-lasting effects include making your skin look and feel younger for an extended period.
After completing your RF Microneedling treatment plan, you can enjoy the advantages of healthy, youthful skin for up to a year until your next session!
Are You a Good Candidate?
While there is no need to worry about radiofrequency microneedling, the procedure isn’t suitable for everyone.
In such case, you might be a good fit if you:
- Enjoy excellent health.
- Showing the first signs of aging
- Having realistic expectations
You should also not have the treatment if you:
- Actively using Accutane
- Have a current outbreak of cold sores
- Having an active skin condition
- Currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy
- Having a baby
- Are using blood thinners
- History of keloid or hypertrophic scarring or difficulty healing wounds
Your doctor will inquire about your medical background and goals during your first visit. They will take pictures of your face to help them decide which method will work best for your specific case, and they will also give you advice on how to get ready for the surgery.
Acne that is currently active may require the use of oral antibiotics. Oral antiviral treatment may be necessary if you have a history of cold sores.
The medical procedure itself will be performed in the doctor’s office. The following is a general description of what to anticipate:
- Your medical professional will clean your skin with alcohol to prevent the spread of infection.
- One hour before the operation starts, a local anesthetic cream is administered to the afflicted area. The medication will make the area comfortable by numbing it.
- Very superficial skin punctures are made by the microneedling tool. Radiofrequency waves are simultaneously emitted at the needle’s tip and absorbed by the wounds.
- Typically, the procedure takes ten to twenty minutes. Depending on the ailment being treated, a specific length of time may be needed.
- A medical expert will employ a skincare product to boost the results when cell regeneration is required. In the end, a soothing treatment is suggested to deal with any soreness still present.
Dermatologists have employed radiofrequency microneedling to treat various skin conditions for years since it is a simple alternative to more invasive procedures like surgery or potentially irritating topical creams. In a nutshell, it’s the gold standard in microneedling therapy.
