Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling combines two proven technologies to stimulate collagen production. RF microneedling can treat conditions including lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. If you want to improve the appearance of your skin, consider this versatile and effective treatment.
How RF Microneedling Works
Microneedling works by creating many tiny channels into your skin. These stimulate the release of healing factors and the development of collagen, a key support protein that gives the skin firmness and smoothness. At the same time, RF energy from the needles enters the skin and triggers even more collagen production. The development of collagen improves the appearance and condition of the skin.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we use the advanced Lutronic Genius™ microneedling system. This system monitors the skin and the delivery of RF energy to ensure the ideal depth and amount of energy. This lets us maximize your collagen production for the best possible results.
Once the microneedling creates its tiny channels, you may choose to have another treatment applied while the skin can fully absorb it. Ask your provider at Capital Laser & Skin Care today about other treatments that can be added to microneedling.
What is RF Microneedling Like?
Your provider may apply a numbing cream or suggest nitrous oxide before the treatment to prevent discomfort. You may feel some tingling or light pressure. The Lutronic Genius™ microneedling system allows our providers the most precise control. This lets them adjust your treatment if you feel anything uncomfortable.
How Much Is RF Microneedling?
Fees can range from $500 and up. Most people will need several sessions to achieve full results. Prices may vary widely depending on your area, the number of sessions, and many other factors. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to schedule a consultation with us at Capital Laser & Skin Care.
What Conditions Can RF Microneedling Treat?
RF microneedling with the Lutronic Genius™ can treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Skin laxity or sagging
- Uneven tone or texture
If you experience any of these issues, you will be happy to know that we have an effective treatment to give you relief.
Is There Any Downtime for RF Microneedling?
You may see some redness and irritation for the first day or two. Other than this, you can resume all of your regular activities. Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen and by avoiding sun exposure while it heals.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
If you want to address any of the conditions listed above, you may be a good candidate for RF microneedling. If you have irritation or a rash on your skin, your provider may help you clear it up before proceeding with treatment.
