As your body’s first protection, your skin has to put up with a lot. And while every fine line and sun spot can tell the story of jokes you have laughed at and experiences you’ve had, it can sometimes be a frustrating experience to see your skin age. The good news is that there are treatments that can help boost your skin’s natural ability to heal and minimize some of these effects of aging.
RF microneedling is a treatment that can help with everything from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scarring. It combines two different types of technology that can help create results deeper in the skin. At Enriched Aesthetics, we look forward to finding solutions to your skin concerns.
What Is Microneedling?
With many different products available online and in beauty stores, microneedling can be a confusing topic. However, professional microneedling is much different than the products that you can find on the shelf at your local store. Professional microneedling platforms are devices that contain tiny needles. But unlike rollers which can tear the skin, precision technology allows these devices to penetrate the skin to precise depths, creating micro-channels without damaging the skin. At our clinic, we use the VirtueRF system which offers the most precision out of any other professional-grade RF microneedling device.
What Does Microneedling Do?
Microneedling platforms create tiny perforations, called micro-channels, in the skin of the treatment area. While this does not damage the skin, it causes your body to react as though your skin were injured. In response, your body will send fibroblasts to the skin. Fibroblasts are cells that specialize in the creation of collagen, elastin, and other fibers that are essential for giving skin its structure.
Since your body naturally stops producing as much collagen and elastin as it ages, this can be important for retaining the youthful texture of your skin, filling in fine lines, and helping with any existing stretch marks or scars.
What Makes RF Microneedling Different?
While microneedling itself can be incredibly effective, the benefits can be increased by using radiofrequency technology alongside microneedling. Since the needles only penetrate the surface of the skin, by themselves they can’t reach the deeper layers of your skin. However, radiofrequency microneedling can address both the top layers of your skin and the deep layers of your skin during one easy treatment.
When delivered to your skin using the VirtueRF system, radiofrequency energy translates as heat energy. This heat energy penetrates the dermis and stimulates collagen and elastin production as your body responds to the heat. If you have deeper damage to your skin, RF microneedling may be the ideal choice to help your body produce new tissue and rejuvenate the area.
When Can You Expect Results?
Results are often seen the most after several microneedling treatments. However, some people can see and feel a change in their skin with the first treatment. You can expect to look for the most results after a few months as your body continues producing new collagen in the area.
What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling Has Less Downtime
While other treatments may be perfect for patients who want to resurface their skin, some resurfacing treatments can come with more downtime. Your skin may appear a little pink in the days after your microneedling treatment session, but most patients find that this does not interfere with their daily schedule any more than a mild sunburn would.
RF Microneedling Can Treat Dark Spots
RF microneedling can help to reduce uneven skin tone for a smoother and more youthful look. It does this by creating new tissue in the treatment area. If you have dark spots from sun exposure or hyperpigmentation from acne or other causes, RF microneedling can help you to have a more even complexion.
RF Microneedling Can Treat Acne Scars
While some types of acne scarring may respond better to other treatments, RF microneedling can be extremely effective on some types of acne scarring. Over the course of several treatments, your skin may become much smoother as new collagen and elastin support the skin and help change the structure of acne scarring.
RF Microneedling Can Be Suitable for All Skin Colors
RF microneedling is considered to be a safe treatment for people of all skin colors, including darker skin tones. You should always check with your doctor to make sure any treatment is recommended in your situation.
While radiofrequency microneedling itself can be a very effective treatment, choosing the right device can make a big difference. We have chosen the VirtueRF because it is the only one of its kind. Robotic precision means that the skin is safely penetrated every time without tearing or scratching.
VirtueRF features different handpieces because not every area of your face is created equal. One handpiece is ideal for larger areas, while another has a single needle and is suitable for small or delicate areas. The DeepRF handpiece can also be used to treat areas from the neck down.
VirtueRF is also the only device that has a patented after-treatment protocol by FRANZ skincare. After your microneedling session, you will be treated to a wet mask with sodium hyaluronate, aloe vera extract, and caffeine to help soothe and nourish your skin. You’ll also get a dry mask with Tissue X ® technology that helps nourishing ingredients to penetrate much deeper into your skin.
