What Is Microneedling With Radiofrequency?
Microneedling with radio frequency (RF) delivers radio frequency energy through the miniature needles used for the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF is able to penetrate to the deeper layers of skin, further supporting scar reduction, skin tightening, and the production of collagen and elastin. Plus, because the RF is able to reach deeper layers of skin than typical microneedling, you’ll also notice faster and considerably more dramatic results.
Like traditional microneedling, the device creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin’s surface to help stimulate the body’s growth factors that produce collagen and elastin. As these wounds heal, the surrounding tissue becomes slightly inflamed, increasing blood flow to the area and encouraging new tissue development. During the second phase of recovery, new connective tissue is created, as well as blood vessels, and collagen and elastin. This sets the stage for tighter, smoother skin by the end of your recovery.
