What can you do to slow down the aging process? You can exercise, eat the…
As winter approaches, our skin begins to show signs that it’s time for a pick-me-up. Whether your skin is dry from the cool air, sensitive from the heat at home, or dull from the lack of vitamin D, colder weather can be unforgiving when it comes to skin health. Radiofrequency microneedling, or RF microneedling, is the go-to treatment for bringing your skin back to life this winter. Sit back, light a fire, and learn more about how this treatment will change your skin game for the better.
What Is RF Microneedling?
It is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes a device packed with specially insulated needles and radiofrequency energy. During the treatment, tiny needles penetrate your skin, creating controlled injuries and allowing radiofrequency waves to deliver a warming effect to the targeted tissue. As a result, your skin increases collagen production. Being that collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, the more you have, the healthier your skin will look and feel.
Is RF Microneedling Painful?
We all know that pain is subjective. Therefore, the level of discomfort during procedures varies patient to patient. With RF microneedling, a topical anesthetic is applied to the desired area 30-60 minutes prior to treatment. The anesthetic numbs your skin, ensuring you feel little to no pain throughout the treatment process.
What Skin Concerns Does RF Microneedling Address?
RF microneedling is one of the most versatile cosmetic treatments on the market today and addresses a wide variety of cosmetic concerns including:
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sagging skin
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven texture
- Dull or gray skin
Is There Any Downtime After RF Microneedling?
With RF microneedling, most patients experience minimal downtime and are fully healed within a week. Immediately after the treatment, your skin might feel tight and appear red—similar to a sunburn. Over the next three to four days following treatment, you can expect some mild dryness and shedding. After seven days, your skin will be healed, and you will be all set to return to your normal routine.
Is RF Microneedling Right for Me?
Patients of all skin types, textures, and tones can receive RF microneedling. Advanced technology within the handheld device safely monitors your skin throughout the entire treatment and can be adjusted based on your unique needs. Whether you struggle with redness and scarring or wrinkles and sagging, RF microneedling can help heal your skin from the inside out.
