What is the Difference Between Microneedling and RF Microneedling?
Microneedling—you’ve probably heard of the popular procedure that’s helped thousands of men and women achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation. Up until now, it was one of the easiest ways to safely and effectively stimulate collagen production to deeper layers of skin. But, there’s a new player in town that’s taking skincare treatments to the next level.
RF Microneedling is an advanced form of microneedling that uses powerful, yet gentle radiofrequency (RF) wavelengths for a 2-in-1 treatment. By pairing minimally-invasive microneedling procedures with the latest RF technology, we’re able to maximize the effects of your treatment with the least amount of downtime possible. Let’s look at some benefits you can expect after RF microneedling at Capital Laser & Skin Care.
Microneedling creates tiny micro-channels to the superficial layers of skin. These micro-channels trigger your body’s natural self-healing process while also allowing RF wavelengths to penetrate to deeper tissue. Together the two technologies work synergistically to produce the best possible outcome. Get enhanced initial results and long-term collagen production with a quick, in-office procedure.
#2: Combat A Variety of Aesthetic Concerns
Many patients really enjoy the fact that they’re able to tackle multiple concerns at one time. RF allows men and women to address their individual problems while also achieving total facial rejuvenation. Reverse visible signs of sun damage and aging including;
Fine lines & Wrinkles
Stretch Marks & Acne Scars
Age & Sun Spots
RF Microneedling treatments are adjusted prior to treatment to deliver thermal energy at custom depths according to your individual needs and goals.
Regular RF Microneedling treatments have been shown to improve overall skin health. Keep aging at bay with twice-annual treatments and enjoy a brighter, smoother, more vibrant complexion. You may need an initial series of 3-4 treatments spaced 1-month apart to get the results you want.
#4: Enjoy Little to No Downtime
Treatments are quick, easy, and virtually painless. RF Microneedling facilitates faster cellular turnover within the skin making for a speedy recovery. Depending on the depth of your treatment you may have absolutely no downtime. However, many patients feel comfortable returning to work or normal day-to-day activities within 24-48 hours. On average, treated skin is pink for up to 3-days.
