About microneedling with radiofrequency

Combination microneedling and radiofrequency fractional treatment that smooths, tightens and contours skin while stimulating collagen production.

Microneedling with radiofrequency, like other microneedling procedures, creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production. Other methods of microneedling utilize PRP, stem cell growth factor, and other serums to penetrate deep into the skin and further enhance results.

After cleansing the skin surface and applying a topical anesthetic, the microneedling device is gently pressed against the treatment area to create numerous, tiny, micro-channels. Microneedling with radiofrequency uses the added technology of flow needles to deliver RF energy into the dermis. The RF energy heats the dermis which not only encourages collagen growth but tissue tightening as well.

Side effects of microneedling with radiofrequency

Microneedling with radiofrequency is generally well tolerated but erythema may be seen after treatment, lasting for 2-3 days. Skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy but this will normally resolve in 12-48 hours. Treated skin may be more prone to hyperpigmentation so strict adherence to photoprotection is advised for a week after.
