Microneedling combined with RF energy is a new non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure. It is used all over the world to help people tighten and lift the skin, reduce pores and wrinkles, and get rid of acne scars and other blemishes on the face or body.
RF microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that causes minimal discomfort to the patient during the procedure.
RF technology treats the targeted area with the rapid penetration of isolated microneedles through the skin without leaving major damage on its surface. The aforementioned microneedles then release laser energy under the surface of the skin, which after the procedure results in the creation of new collagen and skin tissue.
How does RF microneedling work?
RF microneedling works by causing deep stimulation in the skin, thereby increasing collagen production. Depending on the condition of the patient's skin, it is possible to choose the appropriate penetration depth of the microneedles. The penetration depth can vary from 0.5 mm to 3.5 mm deep.
In turn, the skin naturally responds by creating new collagen-rich tissue.
As a result of the production of a larger amount of collagen, the skin becomes tighter, there is a visible reduction in pores, wrinkles, scars and stretch marks, and thus the overall structure and appearance of your skin improves.
What can be treated with RF microneedling?
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Excess skin on the eyelids and wrinkles around the eyes
- Loose neck skin
- Loose skin of the hands
- Hyperpigmentation spots
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Hyperhidrosis - excessive sweating
What are the contraindications and possible complications after the procedure?
Since RF microneedling is considered a non-invasive treatment, risks and complications are minimal. The most common and harmless complication after the procedure is redness, i.e. skin irritation, which usually lasts 2-24 hours after the procedure.
Contraindications for the procedure are:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Metal implants
- Skin diseases
When can we expect results?
A change in the treated area can be seen after just a few days, but further results develop when your body begins to produce collagen. The tightening effect and the final results will appear gradually over six months – which is the time it takes for the skin to completely renew itself.
