Have you been struggling with sagging, hanging skin on your face and neck? Do you have other common skincare concerns, like acne scarring or sun damage? Serums and topical treatments may improve your skin’s health, but they do little to resolve these concerns.
If you have significant complexion issues, you may benefit from RF microneedling.
RF microneedling combines the benefits of traditional microneedling with the advanced effects of radiofrequency energy. Enriched Aesthetics provides RF microneedling treatment for clients throughout the Harding Township, NJ, area. Read on to learn more about how RF microneedling can improve the way your skin looks.
What Is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can address a wide variety of skincare concerns. It is similar to a traditional microneedling procedure, but it adds the benefits of radiofrequency technology. To better understand how this can benefit your skin, learn more about microneedling and radiofrequency energy below.
Microneedling is a popular aesthetic treatment that rejuvenates and revives the skin. During a microneedling procedure, a tiny needle makes microscopic punctures in the skin.
These punctures stimulate a healing response beneath the skin’s surface that can create new skin cells and boost collagen production. Increased collagen production can resolve many common complexion issues, including age-related changes and sun damage.
Radiofrequency (RF) technology is being incorporated into numerous cosmetic treatments, including RF microneedling. RF microneedling emits radiofrequency energy deep into the skin during the microneedling process.
This radiofrequency energy can make changes at the cellular level that produce a tightening effect. Due to these skin-tightening benefits, RF microneedling is a great treatment for clients with loose, sagging skin and wrinkles.
What Is RF Microneedling Used For?
RF microneedling is growing in popularity because it provides a variety of great aesthetic benefits. It is most often used to address age-related changes but can also resolve other common complexion issues.
The following are just some of the complexion concerns that radiofrequency microneedling can address:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Facial creasing
- Loss of volume
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
- Acne scarring
- Dark age spots
- Uneven tone and texture
While traditional microneedling is a great option for patients with mild skin concerns, RF microneedling is a better fit for those with more pronounced issues. We often recommend radiofrequency microneedling for clients who have deep wrinkles and sagging skin due to ongoing collagen loss.
Common Questions About RF Microneedling
Are you new to skin rejuvenation procedures like RF microneedling? It’s normal to have some questions or concerns when seeking any new cosmetic treatment. Below are some of our clients’ most frequently asked questions about radiofrequency microneedling.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
Since RF microneedling offers a wide range of benefits, many people can qualify for this procedure. Older clients experience great solutions to age-related changes, while younger clients can see a reduction in things like acne scarring and enlarged pores.
If you’re curious about RF microneedling or wondering whether you may be a candidate, you should schedule a consultation appointment with a cosmetic provider. We will assess your skin and evaluate any concerns to determine whether RF microneedling is the right fit for you.
What Does Radiofrequency Microneedling Feel Like?
Many clients are concerned about how the RF microneedling procedure feels. Before your treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream to the skin to provide optimal comfort.
You should not feel the tiny punctures being made in your skin from the microneedling device. While the radiofrequency energy is being emitted into the skin, you may feel a slight warmth.
During the procedure, you’ll be able to lie back comfortably while one of our providers administers your treatment. Many clients report that their RF microneedling session was comfortable and relaxing, feeling similar to a spa procedure.
Is There Anything I Should Avoid After My Treatment?
One of the biggest benefits of RF microneedling is that there is no major recovery or downtime after the treatment. The only recommendation is to avoid direct or prolonged sun exposure for several weeks, as this could irritate the skin. Other than this, you can resume most normal activities immediately after your RF microneedling session.
Will I Need More Than One Session?
To see optimal results, you will need to have three RF microneedling sessions. These sessions are spaced about four to six weeks apart, allowing time for your skin to fully heal between each treatment.
When Will I See the Results of My RF Microneedling?
It will take a few weeks to start seeing the results of your radiofrequency microneedling procedure. This is because your skin’s cells need time to respond to the changes made during treatment. New skin cells will begin to develop, and collagen production will increase.
As weeks go on, this collagen production can lead to a decrease in signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. New skin cell growth can replace damaged skin cells in clients with dark age spots or acne scarring. Most clients see their final outcome about one month after treatment.
