RF microneedling is the latest trend in non-invasive cosmetic procedures. Relatively new to the anti-aging treatment options, RF microneedling combines radiofrequency (RF) with microneedling. But what exactly is RF microneedling and is it for me?
WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY?
Radiofrequency is “a type of energy, which is measured in “frequency,” or wavelengths per second.” All energy types emit waves. These can be in the form of sound waves, such as from music, to the sun’s rays. Scientists classify waves according to their frequency on the electromagnetic spectrum.
Radiofrequency (RF) is one type of wave. We find these waves in everyday processes: WiFi signals, radio and TV waves, and microwave ovens. The RF energy used in skin tightening is on the low end of the electromagnetic spectrum. It has been used in non-invasive skin tightening procedures since 2001, but has recently gained traction as celebrities have raved about its effects.
RF targets collagen and elastin production just like microneedling does. However, RF uses heat instead of micro injuries to reach the lower layers of your skin to produce a more youthful appearance. Like microneedling, RF improves skin tone and structure as well as improves the surface of the skin, which includes skin discolorations.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling has formally been around since the late 1990s. Microneedling harnesses the body’s ability to heal by creating micro injuries in the skin. These injuries trigger the skin to produce collagen and elastin, which creates a new layer of skin to boost the injured layer. The result of this extra skin per se is diminished lines and wrinkles, decreased appearance of acne scars and stretch marks, and a tightening of the skin, helping to relieve the sagging of skin.
WHAT IS RF MICRONEEDLING?
RF microneedling has added the power of radiofrequency treatments to microneedling. The idea for this new anti-aging treatment has been around for almost five decades, and now technology has finally caught up to make this idea a reality, akin to the story of the development of the airplane. Da Vinci had the idea (and probably since the dawn of man who first saw a bird fly), but it took up until the beginning of the twentieth century for technology to make this a reality.
When you use RF microneedling, you get the power of two treatments in one. RF waves are delivered through the needle pricks to the deepest layers of the skin, depending on the depth of the microneedles. You get twice the boost in collagen and elastin production and twice the power of tightened skin and diminished scars.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RF MICRONEEDLING?
RF microneedling is known for being a virtually pain-free non-ivasive cosmetic procedure. Results are similar to laser procedures, but with less discomfort and downtime.
HOW DOES RF MICRONEEDLING WORK?
A local, topical anesthetic will be applied to numb the treatment. Treatment itself usually lasts about an hour total, depending on the size of the treatment area. A device very similar to a microneedling pen transmits the radiofrequency at the same time the micro injuries are made. After an RF microneedling procedure, expect your skin to be red for a couple of days as well as more sensitive. There is really no downtime, and the patient can return to normal activities within one day.
IS RF MICRONEEDLING FOR ME?
RF microneedling, like traditional microneedling and radiofrequency treatments by themselves, is appropriate for nearly any skin type and tone. The procedure addresses many of the same issues as both microneedling and RF treatments do:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scarring from acne and/or the chicken pox
- Mild to moderate skin sagging
- Irregular skin texture and tone
Most patients will see accelerated results, with the number of treatments required to achieve your desired results between two and three about a month apart. With just traditional microneedling and radiofrequency treatments by themselves, it typically takes four to six treatments. However, everyone is unique and treatment sessions are determined by the severity of the skin issues to be addressed.
