What is Secret Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling?


Most everyone knows about a micro-needling treatment and how it generates new collagen and elastin to create smooth, toned, and youthful appearing skin.

So what is so special about Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling?

Micro-needling with radiofrequency creates micro-injuries in the skin, causing the release of growth factors and triggers the wound healing process, which produces collagen, creating younger, tighter-looking skin.  Micro-needling with RF works by using tiny needles placed at various depths, creating deep tissue stimulation into the skin, producing more collagen and elastin with heat energy. The micro-needles create tiny columns facilitating the delivery to heat energy into the area treated, promoting healing and collagen stimulation.  The generation of new collagen-rich tissue tightens skin, reduces scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and fine lines in the skin, and improves your skin’s overall texture and appearance.

Where can RF micro-needling be used?

The real answer is almost anywhere on the body you see the need for skin revitalization.  The face, neck, and decollete are the most common areas treated.  This technology can be used on stretch marks and scars that are present anywhere on the body.  It can be used on the knees to prove the skin’s crepiness and the back of the hands.  RF micro-needling improves fine lines and wrinkles, tightens the skin around the eyes, neck, and jawline.  It improves the lines around the mouth.

What are the side effects?

RF Microneedling is considered a non-invasive procedure, so the risks and downtime are minimal.  The discomfort involved in RF Micro-needling is minimal since the procedure requires the application of numbing cream. The most common side-effect is a little skin irritation and redness of the skin, lasting up to 24 hours.

When will I see results?

The results of the RF Micro-needling procedure evolve as your body begins to produce collagen and elastin where the treatment occurs. The tightening effect and final results appear gradually over six months which is the time taken by the skin to rebuild fully. To get a full face restoration, I suggest a customized treatment plan with a minimum of two RF Microneedling sessions, but the best results are seen after 3- 4 treatments.
