Have you noticed that your skin looks uneven or sagging? RF microneedling can tighten and smooth your skin by enhancing collagen production. This procedure combines the benefits of microneedling with RF energy to achieve maximum collagen development and skin improvements.
What is RF Microneedling?
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we use the Genius™ RF microneedling system. This system uses tiny needles that create microchannels in the skin. It also uses radiofrequency (RF) energy that targets collagen-producing cells deeper in the dermis. Together, these two treatments give you intensive collagen renewal and brighter, smoother skin.
How Does RF Microneedling Work For Skin Rejuvenation?
The handheld Genius™ device penetrates the skin to create tiny areas of micro-damage. Your skin responds to this damage by recruiting healing and growth factors to the site. Cells also respond by increasing their production of collagen. The microneedles also send RF energy deep into the dermis, stimulating even more new collagen. Skin becomes firmer, tighter, and smoother.
How Many RF Microneedling Treatments Do I Need?
Most people benefit from a series of RF microneedling treatments to achieve maximum collagen production and skin rejuvenation. We recommend three to six sessions, depending on the skin conditions you want to treat. RF microneedling is safe to have every four to six weeks. You will see your full results three to six months after treatment. Many people have maintenance treatments yearly to keep their skin firm and glowing.
What Results Will I See With RF Microneedling?
You can expect your RF microneedling results to last about one year, and you can restore them with an annual touch-up. This procedure provides effective skin rejuvenation. It can treat skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
- Texture issues
- Acne scars
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
RF microneedling is a popular facial treatment, but it can be used almost anywhere on your body. It can address stretch marks and loose skin on areas like the arms, buttocks, abdomen, and thighs.
Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?
Your skin may look red and sensitive for a day or two after your procedure. You can return to work or other activities immediately. Your skin will need sun protection as it heals since UV rays can damage your new collagen. Avoid harsh products or scrubs on your skin for the first few days.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
Unlike many lasers, RF microneedling is safe for all skin tones and types. Good candidates want to see firmer, younger-looking skin. You may not be a good candidate if you have an active skin condition or a history of abnormal scarring (keloids).
