Radio Frequency Microneedling
Microneedling is a rather popular procedure that safely and effectively addresses various skin concerns. The innovative approach of Radio Frequency microneedling combines traditional microneedling with radiofrequency energy, to take skin rejuvenation to the next level. There are several reasons why Radio Frequency Microneedling deserves to be your new go-to option for complete skin rejuvenation today.
What is Traditional Microneedling?
The traditional microneedling uses a unique device to create micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body’s healing response. Collagen and elastin production are then initiated, which effectively tightens the skin and reduces the appearance of acne scarring and fine lines. At Holistic Aesthetics, our microneedling treatment includes the infusion of platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) into the skin, allowing for a deeper concentrated penetration of nutrients and growth factors for more lasting results.
Radio Frequency Microneedling
RF microneedling includes the element of RF energy to the traditional microneedling procedure. The Radio Frequency energy is delivered via tiny needles. RF microneedling delivers RF energy deep into the dermis, further reducing scars and enhancing skin tightening. The Radio Frequency energy heats the underlying layers, thereby causing constriction and tightening of the skin and stimulating collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so profoundly, it can produce a faster, and more dramatic result.
Who is it for?
Radio Frequency microneedling is an appropriate treatment method for nearly any skin type and tone. The procedure addresses the following issues:
Most of our patients achieve full results with only 2-3 treatment sessions spaced out for about 4 weeks apart. However, the number of treatments depends on how the patient responds and the severity of the various skin issues to be treated.
Benefits of RF Microneedling
Radio Frequency microneedling can offer a similar result to that of ablative laser procedures but significantly less discomfort and downtime. A topical anesthetic is applied before treatment to ensure your comfort throughout the process. Treatment usually takes less than 1 hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Skin is typically red for the first 1 – 2 days after the treatment, but the redness is generally mild and less than is often seen with other laser treatments. There is very little, or no discomfort after the procedure, most patients typically can return to regular activities within a day. You can apply your Makeup 24 hours after the process to mask any residual redness.
RF Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)
In addition to offering this revolutionary procedure, our specialists can further enhance the results for some patients by adding platelet-rich fibrin to the mix. Platelets are found in the blood and contain crucial growth factors that promote cell regeneration and repair in the body. When platelets are injected into the skin immediately following an RF microneedling procedure, the two work synergistically to improve the appearance of the skin significantly. When PRF is added to the treatment, the effects of stretch marks, wrinkle reduction, and acne scars are enhanced. In addition, microneedling and PRF effectively treat mild hair loss for men and women.
