Who is a good candidate for RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a very popular cosmetic treatment that helps stimulate collagen growth in the skin. However, there is another form of treatment that takes regular results to a whole new level.
Meet RF microneedling, which stands for radiofrequency microneedling – a form of treatment that adds in radiofrequency in order to achieve a more profound effect than the standard procedure.
RF microneedling still utilizes tiny needles that glide across the skin, but when they are in the skin for a fraction of a second, they emit radiofrequency that produces heat. The heat actually penetrates the skin deeper than needles and causes far more coagulation of the fluids beneath the skin, resulting in more intense collagen production and skin tightening.
The addition of radiofrequency to microneedling creates more drastic and noticeable results and is three to five times more powerful than standard microneedling. The device penetrates the skin more deeply and it has various settings in order to achieve better precision.
It takes time for a person’s body to produce enough collagen to make drastic changes in its appearance. There are a variety of factors that may affect the amount of time, which include diet, health, habits, genetics, and more. Therefore, the average amount of time for RF microneedling to produce noticeable results is about four to six weeks. But, when you see the results, it does not mean that RF microneedling has completed all its work. It takes the skin about six months to remodel itself and achieve the right results. The results of RF microneedling could last for years; however, this depends on a number of factors, such as diet, sun exposure, age, and smoking status.
The cost for RF microneedling averages around $500 to $1,000, depending on the treatment area, and clients rave about its results. The benefits of the treatment are endless: treating acne scars, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and also erasing stretch marks and scars. The treatment also minimizes and tightens pores, lessens hyperpigmentation, and tightens the skin so you will feel and look more youthful. Ask just about anyone, and they will tell you that the price is right for this treatment that can greatly improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
According to professionals in the industry, patients will see results lasting anywhere from three to six months, on average. It is recommended that follow-up treatments are done at least twice a year. Taking care of your skin through an at-home beauty and conscientious routine can help maximize results. Patients are highly advised to avoid excessive sun exposure with the use of protective clothing or sunscreen.
RF microneedling, which is also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is normally performed on the face. However, it is also used on other parts of the body, including the stomach, thighs, back, hands, and buttocks.
Most people experience swelling and redness following their RF microneedling session. The skin may also be a bit pink in appearance and in the days to follow. But while this may sound uncomfortable, it is actually quite common and is not a cause for concern. The results typically depend on your body’s natural healing process and the actual depth of the microneedling wounds.
There are a number of ways for patients to minimize any side effects following treatments: avoid sun exposure, and physical activities, like workouts that can make you sweat, avoid skin care products that use harsh ingredients, like alcohol, and avoid exfoliants as they may irritate your skin and might also delay healing. Other ways to reduce side effects include drinking plenty of water and using hydrating lotions so that your skin can heal as quickly and efficiently as possible. Also, be gentle with your skin and use light pressure when washing and drying your face or using products. And if your skin becomes itchy, don’t scratch it; use a cool compress if you have flaking or irritation.
It is important to know that while there are some minor side effects, RF microneedling does not require a recovery or downtime period since it is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t cause much harm to the skin. However, patients should avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours following the treatment, and they should use ice packs if there is any swelling.
RF microneedling is a popular, non-invasive skin treatment that is ideal for people with sagging skin, discoloration, sun damage, scarring, and uneven skin texture. And it is also perfect for those who simply want to give their skin a refresh or reboot without surgery. You may also be a good candidate if you have the early signs of aging, are in good health, and have realistic expectations.
You should avoid RF microneedling if you have a skin infection, have a moderate-to-severe skin disease, like psoriasis, are pregnant, are receiving radiation therapy or chemotherapy, or have a history of poor wound healing or hypertrophic scarring.
