RF MICRONEEDLING

What is RF Microneedling?

Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling is a treatment that punctures and rapidly heats the underlying dermis to ~67°C (153 °F).  This particular method of microinjury produces an improvement in the tissue stroma  by enhancing skin collagen, elastin and HA production histologically.  Visually, dramatic improvement in skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, and tone smoothing is routinely achieved with 1-3 treatments.  Perhaps one of the most appreciated benefits of Microneedling is scar reduction, and this is an excellent treatment for any type of scar, including acne scars.

For which skin types can RF Microneedling be used?

All skin types.

Microneedling vs RF Microneedling?

We offer both.   RF Microneedling provides more effective results (and more rapidly, too).

Face

The face is comprised of varying skin stroma types, from very thin skin under the eyes, to thicker skin in the cheeks.  We ensure that the needle depth and various energy settings are perfect for each area being treated.  We also provide several modalities to ensure complete comfort throughout the procedure.

Décolletage

The décolletage is particularly prone sun exposure and damage, resulting in thin skin with poor elastin.  RF Microneedling treatments can markedly enhance the skin in these areas providing thicker skin with improved qualities.

Neck

Too often aesthetic treatments stop at the chin.  RF Microneedling, however, is a supurb treatment for extension to the neck (and décolletage) creating a more boundless & seamless enhancement.  The neck RF Microneedling can be provided separately or as a package with face (and décolletage).

RF Face & Neck

Using highly effective comfort measures including topical numbing, ultra-chilled air, and Pro-Nox, this treatment extends the RF microneedling treatment to the neck, an area often fraught with crepey skin.  This treatment has demonstrated profound improvements in neck skin laxity.

RF Face, Neck & Décolletage

Using highly effective comfort measures, this treatment extends the RF microneedling treatment to the décolletage, an area often fraught thin sun damaged skin with vertical rhytids.  This treatment has demonstrated profound improvements in collagen enhancement and reduction of rhytids.

Other Areas

Abdomen: RF Microneedling can improve sagging abdominal skin and is an optimal modality for improving scars from surgical wounds.

Arms & Lower Thighs: RF Microneedling reduces the sagging skin often experienced in the arms and above the knees.  RF Microneedling is safe for all skin types.

RF Microneedling with PRP

The ultimate anti-aging skin treatment. It adds microneedling of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). A guest’s blood is drawn and spun to collect the PRP, also known as “Liquid Gold,” (for those in the know, the stuff of vampires!) which is rich in collagen-stimulating growth factors. PRP injected into the dermis creates a beautiful skin glow.

FAQ

An aesthetic technique employing needles and radio frequency (RF) energy to cause thousands of microinjuries, to stimulate collagen and elastin stimulation and resulting in enhanced skin characteristics.

No.  Optimally, the device should be able to accommodate an insulated and/or non-insulated needle type, a relatively wide range of energy and needle depths, and even allow for optimized timing (in milliseconds) for delivery of the energy.  Some of the most popular (and expensive) devices on the market do not provide for all of these attributes; our devices do!

You will probably see improvements in two weeks, but since the treatment is based on skin healing and production of collagen you will likely continue to see improvements for 4-6 weeks. 

3-4 treatments at approximately one month intervals provides optimal results

Results typically last a year or more.  Once yearly treatment after an initial series can provide excellent long term results.

Immediately after treatment you will have redness and small puncture wounds which should not bleed; this resolves very rapidly.  For several days you should avoid putting foreign products on the affected area (i.e. makeups).  Lighter skin might show redness for several days, like a mild sunburn.

Microneedling can reduce scars and induce collagen & elastin production.  RF Microneedling does it more effectively and with faster results.  Also, the professional RF Microneedling devices penetrate the skin more deeply with much thinner, disposable needles that have a single use, and have a range of settings to direct optimal therapy to each area of treatment.
