Microneedling treatments have gained popularity over the recent years to achieve both facial rejuvenation and boost your natural production of collagen. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we believe you can measure the popularity of skin health treatments when DIY alternatives hit the stores. The appearance of microneedle derma rollers that can be bought by the public is a testimony of the demand for microneedling.
However, radiofrequency microneedling is not just simple microneedling of the skin. RF microneedling combines radiofrequency wavelength to microneedling techniques to enhance results. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we recommend the treatment to patients who wish to maximize rejuvenation effects and make the most of the non-invasive collagen stimulation therapy. If you are unsure about which procedure is better suited to your needs, here is a brief overview of what you can achieve with RF microneedling.
Microneedling with Radiofrequency
Microneedling is a useful skin treatment to renew your skin for improved health and appearance. The micro-holes caused by the penetration of tiny needles into the outer skin layers are part of an effective collagen induction therapy. Our patients can notice a boost in elasticity and firmness once the healing process is over. Many are pleased to see significant differences in the smoothness of the skin and its texture. Pores are minimized. Your complexion becomes clearer and more vibrant. The collagen serves multiple functions. It is part of maintaining a youthful appearance. It is also an indispensable actor in the healing process, which is why your skin feels healthier after the treatment.
Combined with RF technology, radiofrequency microneedling optimizes the positive results you would obtain with microneedling only. Indeed, the radiofrequency wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin. This uses the thermal energy to encourage repair and restoration of the skin cells deep underneath the surface. Think of it as a deep collagen induction therapy that activates the wound healing response beyond the micro-tears.
Benefits of RF Microneedling
Just like microneedling, RF microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that requires minimal downtime. It is a quick procedure so that you can walk in and out of our practice on the same day.
The addition of thermal energy to the micro-tears in the skin can help deliver greater rejuvenating and healing results. Most patients experience some redness and mild swelling after the application of professional microneedle derma rollers. This resolves within a few days as the healing process responds to the tears. However, radiofrequency energy can speed up collagen production and wound repair response. Patients can expect long-lasting, healthy-looking skin results. Because the collagen is boosted into the deeper layers, the skin becomes visibly tighter, smoother, and firmer.
