What is RF Microneedling?
Radiofrequency microneedling is a skin rejuvenation technique to promote collagen and elastin production. As you age, your skin produces less collagen, which results in thinner and less vibrant skin. To remedy the effects of aging, microneedling uses the body’s healing abilities to resolve these conditions.
Microneedling encourages the skin to boost production by creating microchannels in the skin. The tiny needles cause microdamage, triggering the skin’s natural healing process. Radiofrequency technology digs deeper into the skin by heating the cells below the surface, prompting higher collagen rates than traditional microneedling.
Top 5 Reasons to Try Radiofrequency Microneedling
Chemical peels, traditional microneedling, and lasers are all options for addressing lighter skin conditions, but radiofrequency microneedling targets conditions on a deeper level through its RF energy and offers more than other options.
1.It Works on All Skin Tones
Chemical peels and lasers pose the risk of hyperpigmentation. As a result, these treatments may not work on darker skin. Radiofrequency microneedling works on all skin types and tones, making RF microneedling an excellent alternative treatment for darker skin types.
2.It’s a Customizable Treatment
In consultation, you can discuss your goals in the treatment. RF microneedling can treat larger or smaller areas depending on your needs. Our specialists at Luminesse will determine the customizations to benefit your skin.
3.It Rejuvenates the Skin
By creating microchannels in the skin, RF microneedling encourages the production of collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for keeping your skin bright and flexible. The radiofrequency energy heats the skin in lower layers to trigger higher collagen production than traditional microneedling, resulting in glowing skin.
4.There’s No Downtime
There is no downtime after an RF microneedling session. After your treatment, you may see some redness or swelling similar to a sunburn, but you may immediately return to your normal activities. Please use sunscreen on treated skin to protect from sun exposure.
5.There are Immediate Results
You will notice immediate visible results after your first session. As collagen production increases in the following weeks, the results only improve. You will need multiple treatment sessions for optimal results. Most people see the best skin condition after three treatments.
