What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling

Wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks can make someone feel insecure about the uneven appearance of their skin. Microneedling is an effective, painless, and safe way to rejuvenate your skin. When this modern technology is combined with radio frequency, you get even better results. Read on to learn how Anne Arundel ENT can help improve your skin.

What Is Radio Frequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a popular skin rejuvenation procedure that combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency therapy. This procedure is facilitated by the use of sterile microneedles that pierce the skin, causing micro-injuries that promote natural healing, as a result, collagen is increased. The radiofrequency waves are then absorbed into the skin, stimulating the deeper layers of the tissue. This then heats the body’s collagen production. This combination of approaches results in smoother, stronger, more youthful-looking skin. RF microneedling can be used to address a variety of problems that were traditionally only treated with surgical procedures, such as:

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Stretch marks

  • The appearance of enlarged pores

  • Acne scars

  • Scars from injury or surgery

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Sagging skin

  • Cellulite

What Are The Benefits Of Radiofrequency Microneedling?

RF Microneedling provides both epidermal resurfacing and deep dermal remodeling. This enables you to achieve more dramatic results that last longer. RF Microneedling can tighten loose skin, reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and scarring, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, shrink pores, reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, and smooth wrinkles.

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure that is painless, comfortable, and quick. It does not require downtime. After treatment, your skin will appear reddish and pink for a while, similar to a severe sunburn without complications. What distinguishes microneedling from other methods is that the device has multiple configurations that can be customized to suit your specific concerns about skin texture and quality. This will activate the body’s healing response without damaging the skin cells. 

What Can I Expect From Treatment With Radio Microneedling?

Virtue’s RF microneedles are inserted into the skin using a proprietary RPD system. Unlike other RF micro-needling devices, this method of insertion is more accurate and does not cause trauma to the skin. Depending on the area treated, your doctor will usually apply a numbing cream before the procedure to provide additional comfort. The entire process typically takes around 20 minutes.

After the procedure is complete, the effects may take up to 4-6 weeks to become apparent. The downtime associated with micro-needling for RF therapy is expected to be minimal, but swelling, redness and a light degree of skin peeling are all natural responses to the healing process. Discuss the care that will be provided following the procedure and any suggested changes to daily life with your doctor. You are typically instructed not to expose yourself to direct sunlight for extended periods. You should also utilize a high-SPF sunscreen. Many providers recommend a series of three to five treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for areas like the face, neck, cleavage, and body.
