Chances are that you’ve heard of microneedling in the past, and have a general idea about how tiny needles can help increase collagen to improve the skin. RF microneedling is essentially the next step up, and will give you major differences when compared to take-home microneedling kits you can buy online.
Starting at about age 20, our bodies gradually slow down the rate at which they create collagen and elastin. The combination of collagen and elastin gives skin its firmness and elasticity, which contributes to its young appearance, making them the building blocks for healthy skin. Fine lines and wrinkles develop and deepen when our collagen and elastin levels decline.
Microneedling is a treatment that helps to stimulate a natural increase in the production of collagen and elastin as well as their synthesis. This results in firmer skin, a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance to the face.
How does RF Microneedling work?
At Lavish Laser Med Spa, we use Secret RF Microneedling to help our patients reach their goals of more youthful skin and a more aesthetic appearance. RF microneedling can be adjusted to meet your requirements. A few treatments will reveal your skin’s full potential, whether you wish to tighten and firm it, lessen the visible indications of age, or get rid of blemishes.
In order to regenerate new collagen and elastin, RF microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and heat to penetrate the outer layer of skin and boost the body’s natural healing process. These treatments are unique in that they can be performed on any skin type and on any part of the body.
A local anesthetic ointment is first applied before the microneedling treatment begins. Following the application of the numbing cream, a hyaluronic acid ointment is used to make the device glide more easily over the skin. Each patient’s microneedling treatment plan is created specifically for their skin type and trouble spots. Patients with deeper fine lines or acne scars, for example, may need more time and depth penetration.
For Lavish Laser Med Spa patients, we find that the optimal number of procedures to get desired results often ranges from three to five. Each treatment takes less than an hour, after which you’ll need to take care of your skin by keeping it hydrated and soothed for a few days.
