When trying to improve the complexion of your skin, and perhaps when trying to achieve a more youthful appearance, there are all kinds of treatment options available to you. Laser skin resurfacing has often been a popular choice, but it isn’t right for every situation. Going under the knife for a surgical procedure is another option, but this can be a hassle, and the prospect can be daunting for some. Thankfully, you have other options to consider, including RF microneedling.
We are proud to offer RF microneedling treatments at Spa In The City in Dallas, TX. This advanced treatment may be just what you’ve been looking for to achieve your goals for your complexion. To find out for sure, feel free to contact us today and schedule a consultation!
A Closer Look at RF Microneedling
As a clinically effective procedure, microneedling is a process wherein minuscule needles are placed directly into your skin. By causing minor skin damage, your skin thinks it is under attack and reacts by producing greater amounts of collagen and elastin. As a result of this procedure, you could benefit from plumper, smoother, and more luminous skin. This has obvious anti-aging benefits and can correct various lingering skin issues, too.
The relatively new procedure of RF microneedling takes this one step further, as it combines the revolutionary microneedling treatment with radiofrequency technologies to amplify the process. As you can imagine, this stands to provide many benefits to the patient.
What are the Benefits?
It can quickly reduce visible signs of aging
All facial rejuvenation methods are designed to reduce signs of aging, but the effects aren’t always noticeable immediately. However, after just one session with the RF microneedling method, you could notice signs of healthier-looking skin. Further treatments might be needed to achieve an optimal outcome, but within weeks, you could see and feel a very clear difference.
With RF microneedling, you could reduce the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Surgical and acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Skin pigmentation issues
- Sun spots
- Much more!
So, if you have been worried about those telltale signs of aging, or if you are embarrassed about certain aspects of your skin, with a series of RF microneedling treatments, you could quickly reduce these issues that are causing you concern.
It is more effective than other microneedling methods
All microneedling methods use fine, sterile needles to penetrate the skin and induce collagen production. As a result, the skin can be tightened and smoothened, and the patient can benefit from a glowing, younger-looking appearance in many cases.
RF microneedling combines traditional methods with radiofrequency heat energy to amplify the amount of time it takes for collagen and elastin to be produced. The added RF energy can also penetrate deeper into the skin, and this can further encourage skin tightening. It is particularly effective on those patients who have rough and damaged skin, and where long-term acne scars are present. The RF energy breaks up scar matter more effectively than needle punctures, so this is one area where it can be deemed superior to traditional microneedling methods.
So, when choosing a microneedling procedure, you might consider RF microneedling for faster and more effective results, especially if you have any problematic areas of skin that can’t be treated effectively in any other way. However, it’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
It involves significantly less discomfort and downtime
During treatment, a numbing gel may be applied to your face to reduce feelings of discomfort during the procedure. After the treatment has been completed, a cold compress or other soothing agents may be applied to your face, and this should reduce any swelling that may have occurred. Any discomfort you feel after treatment should be minimal, if there’s any at all, despite a slight redness to your skin. The same is not true for other methods of facial rejuvenation, such as surgical facelifts and harsh laser procedures. And unlike those other methods, you could experience less downtime after your treatment, too. You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after your procedure has been completed.
RF microneedling is suitable for most skin types and tones
RF microneedling is a great option for practically any patient wishing to refresh and revitalize their appearance, no matter what skin type or tone they possess. The microneedles can deliver energy at various depths, so treatments can be personalized to suit the unique needs of each patient, regardless of the quality and pigment type of the skin and their individual concern. So, if you have been guided away from other treatment options, or if they have been less effective than you had hoped, you might find that RF microneedling is perfect for you.
There are minimal side effects
With RF microneedling, the only side effects you should expect are minor and may include redness, swelling, and the occasional bruised skin. All of these are temporary, so you won’t have to put up with them for long. Of course, you will need to care for your skin during this time, such as avoiding sun exposure and keeping up with your usual skincare routine. Our professional may recommend other aftercare treatments. Still, unlike certain surgical procedures, there will be less noticeable effects of treatment on your face.
