Your body’s natural healing process plays an important role in anti-aging procedures. Microneedling takes advantage of the body’s natural healing processes to produce more flawless, younger-looking skin. At our med spa, patients can boost the benefits of microneedling by combining it with radiofrequency skin rejuvenation for more dramatic results.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling creates tiny perforations in the surface of the skin. The body begins repairing these micro injuries by producing collagen. The new collagen helps reduce pore size, diminish fine lines and scars, improve skin texture, and improve skin firmness.
Micro needling is most often used to:
- Tighten loose or sagging skin
- Treat sun damage
- Diminish fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Reduce scars, particularly those caused by acne
- Correct pigmentation, including melasma
Combining Radiofrequency + Microneedling
Microneedling combined with fractional radiofrequency (RF) produces a superior result in both skin quality and skin texture. Radiofrequency has been used in both medicine and aesthetic skin treatments for many years. In aesthetic treatments, radiofrequency stimulates the skin to restructure and regenerate collagen. When radiofrequency energy is emitted beneath the skin, it stimulates deep collagen regeneration to add volume.
After micro needles have penetrated the skin, a radiofrequency energy burst is discharged, causing thermolysis. Thermolysis is thermal damage that stimulates new collagen fibers to be produced. The skin subsurface heals, restoring age-related volume loss.
Numbing cream is used to reduce treatment discomfort, which is generally limited to feeling the pressure of the treatment head. Although pain tolerance is individual, most people have no pain during the micro needling with RF treatment.
