Microneedling with Radio Frequency
How does Microneedling work?
The secret to microneedling’s success are the ultrafine needles that puncture your skin to make very tiny wounds. As your skin heals from these wounds, your body’s collagen production soars, resulting in taut skin. Surface scarring is eliminated and fine wrinkles are softened, if not erased. Simply put, it’s the only treatment that tightens your skin while also reducing your wrinkles at the same time.
What are the benefits to Microneedling?
The majority of patients seek microneedling RF treatment for its anti-aging benefits like smooth, taut skin and a less wrinkled appearance, but it also corrects scarring due to acne. The collagen that the procedure creates helps fade your scarring. The result is the restoration of your flawless skin!
How long will my Microneedling results last?
Our nurses typically recommend a a series of three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments every six months for long-lasting results.
What should I expect during a Microneedling treatment?
About an hour before treatment, your provider will apply a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort. Then they’ll use a handheld device to make pinpricks in your skin, promoting collagen production. The entire treatment typically takes a 30-45 minutes.
What should I expect after treatment?
After treatment, the skin has the appearance of a sunburn and may be minimally swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post treatment. We recommend that you do not wear makeup the same day of your treatment to allow the skin to ‘breathe’ and to expedite the healing process.
