Radiofrequency Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles to puncture the top layer of skin. These tiny pinpricks stimulate the skin to produce new collagen, which is the building block of your skin. The increased collagen plumps up the skin, fills in acne scars, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves the texture of your skin, making it smoother and firmer.

The tiny pinholes also create “microchannels,” which allow topical skin products to penetrate the skin more deeply. Patients find that their usual regimen of facial serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products work much more effectively after a microneedling procedure.

What is RF microneedling?

RF microneedling adds the benefit of radiofrequency (RF) energy to the microneedling process. In addition to the tiny needles penetrating the top skin layer, a pulse of radiofrequency energy travels through the needle and even deeper into the skin’s lower layers, creating a warming effect. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin at an even deeper level than the needles alone. A typical RF Microneedling session takes about 20-60 minutes, and most patients find it to be painless. The professionals at Anderson Gynecology & Aesthetics will use a numbing cream on your skin to keep you comfortable during the treatment.

RF microneedling provides more intense skin rejuvenation. It treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks
  • Deep acne scars
  • Sunken scars, such as those from chickenpox
  • Skin discoloration

RF microneedling works on all skin types and colors. If you’re wondering if this treatment may be right for you, schedule a consultation at Anderson Gynecology & Aesthetics. 

 

When will I see results from RF microneedling?

Your skin will feel tighter, smoother, and plumper right after treatment, and your skincare products will absorb much more quickly starting the first night after treatment. However, while the collagen regrowth will begin immediately after treatment, as your body continues to rebuild collagen, gradual improvements occur over the next six months.

Depending on the depth of your scarring, lines, stretch marks, or wrinkles, you may need multiple RF microneedling treatments to reach your desired results.
