Nothing beats the body’s innate healing processes and capabilities. Your body is a well-oiled machine capable of healing the deepest wounds and injuries. But as you grow older, your body’s ability to produce collagen is compromised, leading to skin laxity, persistent scars, stretch marks, and other issues. Phoenix Skin and Laser provides a highly personalized RF microneedling treatment to trigger your body’s collagen production capabilities and reverse skin damage, helping you achieve smooth and even-textured skin.
About RF Microneedling
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is an advanced form of the standard microneedling treatment, also known as collagen induction therapy. RF microneedling involves using an FDA-approved device to create thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface while delivering radiofrequency waves into the deep dermis. This procedure triggers your body’s innate healing properties, making it produce new collagen fibers to reverse the signs of aging and elevate skin texture. The results are completely natural because they’re based on the body’s natural healing activities.
What Does RF Microneedling Treat?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Facial scars
- Textural irregularities
- Age spots and sun spots
- Other pigmentation problems
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of elasticity and firmness
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
RF microneedling is a groundbreaking treatment that combines the unique benefits of radiofrequency therapy and microneedling. The procedure is fairly simple — the microneedling device creates thousands of micro-channels on the skin’s uppermost layers while delivering radiofrequency energy into the deep dermis. Whenever you’re injured, your body initiates collagen production and skin cell turnover to heal the wound. The micro-injuries trigger the body’s innate healing properties and collagen production without causing unnecessary skin damage, so the treatment is completely safe and painless.
Over time, your body produces new collagen fibers and skin cells to replace the old and damaged skin tissues. Collagen is a fibrous protein that binds your skin tissues together, making your skin look smooth, firm, and youthful. The loss of collagen because of age is the primary reason for the onset of facial wrinkles and skin laxity. Microneedling boosts collagen production, and radiofrequency energy catalyzes the process, essentially reversing the signs of aging. Over time, your facial skin looks smoother, softer, more even-textured, and more youthful.
Benefits of RF Microneedling:
- Minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment
- Stimulates natural collagen production and skin cell turnover
- Boosts the results of standard microneedling
- Concludes within 30 to 45 minutes
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Improves overall skin tone and texture
- Revitalizes your skin complexion
- No downtime or extended recovery period
Your RF Microneedling Experience
RF microneedling is a fairly simple procedure that concludes within 45 minutes. After a thorough facial assessment to adjust the microneedling device, the cosmetic provider applies a numbing gel on your skin to ensure comfort. The microneedling device is gradually moved across your skin to create thousands of micro-punctures on the skin’s surface, which stimulates collagen production. After covering all the treatment areas, the cosmetic provider applies a soothing gel and antibiotic to your face to ensure optimal safety and comfort.
What Happens After RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling doesn’t involve harsh side effects or downtime. You may experience mild redness, swelling, and tenderness after the treatment for a few days, but there are no complications. The side effects usually dissipate within 2 to 3 days. You can resume your daily activities and work, but avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for 2 to 3 days.
When Will I See the Results?
You will notice the results of RF microneedling after a few weeks. As your body produces new collagen fibers, your facial skin will look smoother, tighter, and more even-textured. The fine lines and wrinkles will dissipate, and the scars will start filling up, making your skin look smooth. Most patients need 3 to 6 sessions spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results.
