While beauty is much more than skin deep, our skin is always a part of how we present ourselves. As such, skin issues and concerns can sometimes take a toll on your confidence. If you find your skin could benefit from a high-quality skincare therapy, you may be interested in learning about radiofrequency (RF) microneedling! We have answered some questions about RF microneedling below to give you a broader understanding of what it is all about and how it may help you.
RF microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that combines radiofrequency skin tightening treatment with that of microneedling to provide a more bolstered approach to skincare. Both microneedling and radiofrequency energy improve the skin by inflicting minor controlled injuries to the treatment area. These controlled injuries help the skin by inducing a healing response that produces an influx of collagen, elastin, and other proteins that are crucial to the structural integrity of your skin (or any other connective tissue in your body, for that matter). In this way, RF microneedling works similarly to the tiny tears inflicted on your muscles when working out, which are replaced with stronger and healthier muscle tissue.
Collagen and elastin are the key players in the overall health of your skin. As we age, our bodies produce less of these two essential proteins, resulting in aging signs like skin laxity, wrinkles, and others. As a result, RF microneedling counteracts such aging signs by increasing your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area.
The radiofrequency aspect of RF microneedling enables the collagen induction process to affect deeper layers of the skin than microneedling can on its own. As such, RF microneedling can be a better option for individuals with more significant skin issues looking for a more robust alternative to microneedling. With that being said, traditional microneedling is still an excellent option for individuals with subtler skin concerns.
If you are in good health and dealing with early aging signs, you are likely a good candidate for RF microneedling! Individuals with moderate to severe scarring, skin laxity, wrinkles, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation are usually satisfied with the results they receive from RF microneedling. Since there are certain conditions that may contraindicate RF microneedling, your RF microneedling provider will make sure you can safely receive this procedure before going forward with it. Some conditions or treatments that may disqualify you from microneedling include:
– Active cold sore breakout
– Anticoagulant treatment
– Chemotherapy or radiation therapy
– History of wound healing complications
– Psoriasis, or other moderate to severe skin diseases
– Skin infection
RF microneedling is also not typically recommended if you are pregnant. So, in some cases, you may have to wait until a better time to receive RF microneedling, or other options may be recommended to you.
RF microneedling is an excellent skin tightening procedure! The deep action that RF microneedling provides to the dermis layers of your skin enables long-lasting skin tightening results that are typically only achieved with more aggressive skin resurfacing treatments. Most individuals find that the skin tightening results from RF microneedling last between one to two years.
