At Bergen Premier Aesthetics we use the Cutera Secret™ RF machine for the microneedling procedure. Using tiny needles and radiofrequency waves, radiofrequency microneedling rejuvenates facial skin. In this treatment, the skin is damaged in a controlled manner. In addition to treating acne scars and wrinkles, the damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin. In contrast to chemical peels and dermabrasion, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive.
According to research, many skin conditions can be treated with radiofrequency microneedling.
Radiofrequency microneedling moderately improved acne scars in 58 percent of participants in a 2014 study. Similar results were found in a small study published in 2017. Radiofrequency microneedling can also improve the appearance of your skin. The procedure was found to reduce wrinkles around the eyes as well.
This treatment was more effective than Botox injections in terms of duration. According to a 2020 case report, the treatment can also reduce loose facial skin. Radiofrequency microneedling also reduces skin pore size and texture. The procedure can permanently treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. Sweat glands have been found to be reduced in number and size by the treatment.
Microneedling involves rolling a specialized device over the skin to create controlled micro-injuries along the skin. The skin’s natural healing process is stimulated by these minor injuries, leading to the production of skin-firming proteins such as elastin and collagen. In addition to reducing wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and stretch marks, newly developed growth factors also thicken the skin. In addition to microneedling, hyaluronic acid can also be delivered through micropunctures.
In RF microneedling, radio frequency (RF) energy is added to traditional microneedling to promote growth factors. With RF microneedling, specialized “energized” needles are used to create micro-punctures along the skin while simultaneously delivering radiofrequency energy to the skin. When radiofrequency energy is added to traditional microneedling, it amplifies the production of skin-improving proteins and enzymes such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
The addition of RF energy also heats the underlayers of the skin, which further enhances skin tightening. RF microneedling boosts collagen levels more than traditional microneedling. Even the most severe wrinkles can be smoothed out with the added heat created by the RF energy.
Following microneedling with radiofrequency treatment, most patients experience minimal downtime and fully recover within seven days. A few days after healing, the redness, shedding, and dryness will disappear. For a few days, you should refrain from strenuous activities and use skincare products.
In 3 to 6 months, you’ll see results from RF microneedling. Depending on the type and severity of your condition, the timeframe may vary. A minimum of four sessions is usually required, depending on what you’re treating. This may also differ. As an example, if you have moderate acne scars, you may need three or four treatments. Five treatments may be needed for scars that are larger.
The sessions will take place every 3 to 8 weeks. As a result, your skin is able to heal between treatments. The results will last for about a year after the initial treatment. In order to maintain your desired results, a touch-up session is recommended once a year.
As a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime, microneedling with radio frequency has many benefits. Your skin won’t need to be injected with any substances or undergo any surgery. A wide variety of skin issues can be treated with microneedling with radio frequency. By making your skin firmer and smoother, you will improve its appearance, texture, and condition. Wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars can all benefit from this combined treatment.
