Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
As part of the natural aging process, our bodies produce less of those key elements that keep us looking younger. Our once youthful skin begins to change its texture and tightness, loosening and becoming less defined.
As much as we like to embrace these natural changes that come with each decade, we are also firm believers in restoring, enhancing, and maintaining your natural beauty through all stages of life. And the earlier you take care of your skin, the better your complexion will be down the road.
At Revivology, we offer the most up-to-date skin rejuvenation treatments to help restore your skin and bring back your youthful appearance. Among these services is a non-invasive treatment called radiofrequency microneedling, or RF microneedling.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is an FDA-approved treatment that combines the collagen-boosting techniques of traditional microneedling with the powerful skin-tightening of radio frequency energy. The result? A dramatic toning, tightening, and lifting of your skin.
In traditional microneedling (something we also provide!), a small device is passed over the skin, delicately puncturing the area with tiny needles to stimulate a natural skin-improving response. With the addition of radiofrequency, we can deliver an even more effective healing process, as the RF energy gently heats the skin, stimulating even more collagen production on a deeper level than with microneedling alone. This deep tissue stimulation tightens the skin and allows deeper repair, making it an ideal treatment for stretch marks and acne scars.
Why RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling restores the deep layers of your skin — combating wrinkles, improving collagen, and even reducing unwanted fat cells. The radiofrequency energy gently heats the skin and amplifies your overall results.
We recommend RF microneedling to improve problem areas in the face, neck, and chest. Our technicians can tailor your treatment towards your skin type and target specific areas of concern. By rejuvenating the skin at the cellular level, this treatment is ideal for individuals with these common skin concerns:
- Acne and scarring
- Irregular texture
- Cystic acne
- Spider veins
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Sagging skin
- Enlarged pores or unevenness
- Stretch marks
- Lines or creases
Is RF Microneedling safe for all skin types?
RF Microneedling is safe and effective on all skin colors, textures, and types, including sensitive skin. However, we do not recommend RF microneedling on anyone who’s pregnant or breastfeeding. For your safety and health, we provide a medical screening prior to your treatments to ensure RF microneedling is the right fit for you.
Is a RF Microneedling treatment painful?
If you’re new to microneedling, you may be wondering what the experience will feel like. Most of our patients who come in for treatment would describe microneedling as a mild and virtually painless sensation. At most, you might feel a warm heat and small “zaps” from the microneedles penetrating the skin.
To start, we apply a topical numbing cream before your treatment to help reduce any discomfort. We’ll also follow-up your treatment with a soothing cream to calm and cool the skin as it begins to recover.
What does the healing/down-time look like?
After each treatment, your skin will most likely be a sunburn-like red and will also be tender to the touch. You may notice tiny marks in the skin that will eventually turn into crust and flake away. Any redness you experience should typically go away within a day or two, depending on the intensity of your treatment. You’ll be able to resume most of your daily activities after your session is over, but you’ll want to avoid these activities for at least three days:
- Being outdoors or standing in direct sun exposure
- Heavy exercising or manual labor
- Wearing makeup or using serums unrelated to your aftercare treatment
How long do the results of RF Microneedling last?
When you finish your first treatment, you may notice some skin tightening right away, while most of our patients begin to see results within a few days. It takes about six weeks for the skin to create new collagen, so you should really start to see a noticeable improvement at around six weeks. And the best part? Your results are permanent. Welcome to your new skin.
And while we won’t be able to stop the natural aging process from there, we can definitely create a plan to continue to maintain and rejuvenate your appearance long-term.
How many Rf microneedling treatments do I need?
If your problem areas are more mild in severity, you may get the results you want after one treatment. Lucky you! For best results, we recommend scheduling three treatments total, spacing each visit out every 3 or 4 weeks. This will ensure that your skin is being treated at the deepest level to give you the most productive healing process.
Before we begin treatment, we will provide you with an in-depth treatment plan catered to your skin care needs, so you’ll know what to expect. During your initial consultation, we’ll be able to get a snapshot of the current condition of your skin and be able to determine if a combination of other procedures or products could speed up your results.
