What is Radiofrequency (RF) with Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a fine needle to create microwounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy.
If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling.
The skin that grows back is thicker and smoother.
Who’s an ideal candidate for radiofrequency microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is considered safe, but it isn’t appropriate for everyone.
You may be an ideal candidate if you:
are in good health
have early signs of aging
have realistic expectations
Alternatively, you should avoid the treatment if you:
currently or recently used Accutane
have an active cold sore breakout
have a skin infection
have a moderate to severe skin disease (like psoriasis)
are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy
are taking anticoagulants
have a history of keloids, hypertrophic scarring, or poor wound healing
What’s the Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling procedure like?
Prior to the procedure
At your initial appointment, your provider will ask questions about your medical history and expectations. They’ll also take photos of your face to determine the best technique for your condition, as well as provide instructions on how to prepare for the procedure.
If you have active acne breakouts, you may be asked to take oral antibiotics. If you have a history of cold sores, you might need to take oral antiviral medication.
During the procedure
Your actual procedure will take place in your healthcare provider’s office. Generally, here’s what you can expect:
A healthcare provider cleans your skin with alcohol to prevent infection.
They apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area about 1 hour before the procedure. In some cases, they might inject a local anesthetic instead. The anesthetic numbs the area so you won’t feel pain.
The microneedling device makes tiny wounds in the skin. Simultaneously, the tip of the needle releases radiofrequency waves into the wounds.
The procedure takes 10 to 20 minutes. The exact duration depends on what you’re treating.
A healthcare provider applies a growth solution to support cell regeneration. They finish with a soothing solution to minimize any discomfort.
After the procedure
You can go home after the treatment and return to your normal activities.
What’s the best way to take care of your skin post-radiofrequency microneedling?
After your procedure, your doctor will explain how to care for your skin. This will include the following aftercare tips:
Apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort.
Wear SPF for several weeks after your treatment. Your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun during this time.
Use antibiotic creams or emollients if your doctor prescribed them.
Use a gentle cleanser after your treatment.
Avoid wearing makeup until the next day. After 24 hours, you can return to your normal makeup and skin care routine.
Is this treatment right for me?
Every woman or man who would like their face to look younger or smoother without surgery is a candidate for this treatment. A person of practically any age can receive the treatment. Some clients have obvious ageing from mid 30s others do better with deeper lines and laxity not evident till the fifties. There is an advantage to starting a little younger (the forties) and planning an annual budget for maintenance.
What happens during this treatment?
Before the treatment starts the treatment area is coated in a conductive gel to make the treatment more comfortable and to increase the hand pieces surface contact with the skin. There is little discomfort during or after RF with Microneedling Face Lift treatment. There is a definite feeling of warmth in the skin at the area being treated. The hand piece used in treatment has it's own cooling module to help keep the treatment comfortable..
How many treatments are required and how long are they?
We recommend a course of anywhere between 3 to 6 sessions (depending on the areas treated and your skins reaction to the treatment) for the most beneficial results. We also recommend a maintenance treatment approximately every 6 months after your initial treatment course to maintain the results.
How long before I see the results of the treatment?
You will notice a subtle difference in your skin during your first treatment; however the results get better and better with ever treatment. The treatment is an accumulative result, the more treatments you do the better your results will be. It is normally around the 3th treatment for the results to be more drastic.
Once we have started to stimulate your collagen it will continue to produce in between each treatment, once we get your skin to a level that both you and your therapist are happy with it is important to do a maintenance treatment every 6 months to top up your collagen production.
Results have been reported to last up to 2 years, but this also depends on how well the client is looking after their own skin. Your therapist will recommend range of homecare for you to use to maintain your skin in between treatments.
