Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF) can reduce signs of aging, sun damage, scars, and wrinkles. By inducing collagen development, it can even make skin tighter and more resilient. Capital Laser & Skin Care uses the Genius™ RF microneedling device for maximum treatment results.
The Genius™ RF microneedling device gives better, faster results than previous RF microneedling equipment. The Genius™ RF microneedling device uses tiny needles that create micro-injuries to your skin. At the same time, the needles expose the area to RF energy, which triggers collagen development and faster healing. RF microneedling can be used on the face and neck, but also on the arms, legs, buttocks, and abdomen.
How RF Microneedling Works
RF microneedling works by penetrating the skin with tiny needles, causing micro-injuries. The body will immediately begin repairing these areas with new, healthy tissue. This healing process produces fresher, brighter-looking skin.
In addition, RF energy penetrates deeper layers of skin. There, it triggers an even stronger healing response, especially by stimulating collagen production. Collagen, the network of protein that keeps skin looking young and vibrant, can fall apart with age. The damage from microneedling with the RF energy signals your body to rebuild collagen.
You can expect to see the skin in the treated area to look tighter, firmer, and more resilient after you complete treatment. At Capital Laser & Skin Care we recommend a series of three to four treatments, spaced one month apart, to achieve your desired results, and then maintenance treatments to continue the anti-aging benefits.
Is There Any Downtime for RF Microneedling?
Your skin may look normal after treatment, or it may look red, resembling a sunburn. This will go away within two to three days, but you can resume normal activities after the procedure. Your provider will instruct you on sun protection to make sure your healing skin is not damaged. You will not need any downtime from your regular routine.
Am I a Good Candidate For RF Microneedling?
All skin types and tones can receive Genius™ RF microneedling. This technologically advanced device monitors your skin during the treatment and can be adjusted for your comfort, so even sensitive skin can tolerate this treatment.
