The RF micro-needling uses specially insulated needles that deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted tissue once the needles have broken through the skin. This gives a uniform warming effect to the deep tissue, which helps with fine lines, enlarged pores, wrinkles, acne scars, skin tightening and stretch marks. encourages collagen growth and tissue tightening precisely at predetermined depths in the skin. The result is a little to no downtime, and a nearly painless procedure that can greatly improve wrinkling, scars, and skin laxity.
The RF micro-needling device makes tiny wounds in the skin. Simultaneously, the tip of the needle releases radiofrequency waves into the wounds.
- RF uses radio frequency energy waves to heat the collagen under the skin. These waves flow between electrodes positioned on the surface of the skin. Heat flows through the layers of skin with less impedance and stimulates the synthesis of new collagen and elastin thereby tightening the skin.
- The laser uses a highly focused light beam, which converts into thermal energy (heat). It breaks down and remodels the scars, and over a period, they begin to heal.
The procedure normally takes 10 to 20 minutes. The exact duration depends on what you’re treating.
A numbing crème is applied before treatment to decrease any discomfort. Possible side effects include:
- mild acne flare-up
- cold sore breakout
After 24 hours, you can return to your normal makeup and skin care routine.
Most people require 3-5 sessions over six months to attain visible results. The number of sessions depends on your skin’s response to the treatment and are usually 4-6 weeks apart.
