What You Need to Know About RF Microneedling
- Posted on: Dec 6 2022
If you struggle with imperfections like acne scars, wrinkles, or sun damage, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling can help. At North Dallas Dermatology Associates, we offer this rejuvenating skin procedure.
What Is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment. In recent years, we have added radiofrequency microneedling to our treatment menu to better suit your skin’s needs.
During a regular microneedling session, we use a handheld skin pen with tiny needles on the tip. These needles slightly puncture your skin in various areas to stimulate collagen production. Your skin responds to these small wounds by regenerating skin cells as well as collagen and elastin fibers.
RF microneedling is the same thing, except this treatment doubles as a skin-tightening procedure. The skin pen emits radiofrequency energy as the needles penetrate your skin, and in turn, the energy encourages your skin fibers to tighten. The result is a firmer skin surface.
What RF Microneedling Does for Your Skin
Radiofrequency microneedling creates controlled injuries within your skin cell matrix. This is the best way to stimulate your skin’s production of new fibers that renew your overall complexion.
Aging, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation are just a few of the concerns that this procedure can address. There are numerous additional positive outcomes associated with RF microneedling treatments, including the following.
Reduced Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Collagen production can start to decline as soon as your mid-20s. This leaves your skin with less elasticity, which makes wrinkles and fine lines appear over time.
Collagen and elastin both combat the formation of wrinkles because they give your skin the ability to “snap back” to its original shape. If you have expression lines and wrinkles, radiofrequency microneedling can treat them by increasing your skin’s elasticity.
Faded Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are common, especially in women. Your skin forms stretch marks when it has to expand quickly, causing the skin fibers to break and scar. This can happen due to pregnancy, weight gain, and aging.
Topical creams, lotions, and body butters do little to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. They can’t penetrate the deeper layers of your skin to correct the root of the problem.
Radiofrequency microneedling repairs the deep layers of your skin involved in the formation of stretch marks. With repeated treatments, stretch marks fade over time.
If you have enlarged pores, RF microneedling can provide long-lasting pore shrinkage. Enlarged pores can interfere with makeup and skin care application, which prevents you from achieving smooth, flawless skin.
RF microneedling makes your pores appear smaller by renewing the skin fibers around them. Your complexion will appear smoother and clearer once you have smaller pores.
Diminished Acne Scars
Acne breakouts can leave behind noticeable marks on your skin. Acne scars are typically pink, purple, or brown. They can get in the way of a clear complexion, even after you have resolved your breakouts.
The skin renewal process that occurs during RF microneedling treatments works to rejuvenate areas of your skin with acne scars. You can get rid of these reminders of past breakouts for good.
Sunspots, also known as age spots, are usually dark brown and spread across your complexion over time. There are also some skin conditions that trigger hyperpigmentation.
If you want an even-toned complexion, RF microneedling is the treatment for you. RF microneedling brings brand-new skin fibers to the surface, getting rid of any dark spots in the process.
The Benefits of RF Microneedling
Why should you choose RF microneedling over other skin care treatments?
While we offer additional skin services, we highly recommend adding RF microneedling to your treatment plan. Many patients benefit from these complexion-renewing benefits that come with the treatment.
RF microneedling appointments usually take no longer than one hour. This is the perfect skin care treatment for you if you are short on time and need quick sessions.
We will do our best to schedule your appointments during times that work for you. You can come in for some “me time” and renew your skin at the same time.
Unlike more intense procedures, RF microneedling does not require any downtime after we’re finished. This means that you can walk out the door as soon as your appointment is over.
This is known as a “lunch break procedure” because it’s so quick and doesn’t require downtime. If you have spare time in your day, you can stop in for a convenient microneedling session.
If you would like to correct your skin concerns without surgery or more intense treatments, RF microneedling may be your answer. It is a minimally invasive and well-tolerated procedure.
We don’t need to make any incisions, use general anesthesia, or make any major changes to your face. We simply apply the skin pen where it needs to go and let it get to work restoring your skin.
After a series of RF microneedling treatments, your results can last for a long time. Since microneedling renews the skin fibers themselves, your skin remains in good shape for months and years to come. As long as you take good care of your skin afterward, you can be free of many of your skin concerns.
