What if I told you that I could treat your fine lines, wrinkles, texture, acne, acne scars, and skin laxity with a simple 60-minute procedure, and you would only have one to two days of downtime? Would you even believe this magic exists?! It’s real, and we have it at The Skin Company.
RF microneedling (radiofrequency microneedling) is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that combines the collagen-inducing effects of microneedling with the delivery of radiofrequency energy. By repairing, remodeling, and resurfacing the skin deep below the surface, the treatment improves skin texture and tone to address fine lines and wrinkles, laxity, active acne, acne scars, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks, skin texture, and more!
But how does RF Microneedling work?
RF microneedling creates controlled microdamage that provokes a wound-healing response, stimulating the growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne, scars, and wrinkles. To enhance the wound healing response of regular microneedling, the needles deliver radiofrequency energy below the skin’s surface. This energy heats the tissue, stimulating even more collagen production than microneedling alone. This deep tissue stimulation tightens the skin and repairs deeper skin blemishes such as stretch marks, acne scars, and wrinkles.
The minimal downtime is the best thing about RF microneedling compared to other laser treatments. Immediately after your treatment, you might experience pinpoint bleeding, flushed skin, and minor swelling. These are all expected responses to the micro-injuries inflicted on your skin. These symptoms should subside in 24-48 hours. A consistent skincare routine and daily use of an SPF will support a quick healing process.
How long will RF microneedling results last?
Results last for one to two years or longer, depending on the intensity of the treatment, the number of treatments, and the concern you are treating. If you are treating acne scars, the improvements can last for many years. Treating skin laxity, acne scars, acne, or skin aging, results can last longer with consistent use of topical retinoids and sunscreen.
And what is needed for optimal results with RF microneedling?
Completing a treatment series of three to six RF microneedling sessions is recommended for optimal results. A consistent at-home skincare routine will maintain and enhance RF microneedling results. However, annual follow-up visits of one to three treatments are recommended to maintain and enhance results. Your provider at The Skin Company will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your skin needs and goals, including in-office visits and at-home care.
How do I book my first RF microneedling treatment?
Before your first treatment, we recommend a complimentary skincare consultation at The Skin Company. During your consultation, your provider will conduct an evaluation of your skin, discuss your at-home routine, and make recommendations to prep your skin for your treatment. From there, we will schedule your first appointment and series of treatments.
