What to Know About RF Microneedling

Rf Microneedling In Richmond HillHave you heard about radiofrequency microneedling and the benefits it provides? If not, all is good because our team here at Ava Laser Clinic would like to talk about this treatment in detail! This way, you can better understand the procedure before booking an appointment for it, or just learn more to find out whether this treatment is right for you. 

How it Works 

For many years, microneedling has been used to renew skin cells and offer amazing results on darkened spots of the skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is also commonly named “collagen induction therapy”, as it helps the skin become stronger and healthier. In simplest terms, this procedure works to engage your skin’s amazing ability to heal itself. With the small, shallow needles of this device, microneedling makes microscopic punctures into your skin to kick your body’s production of elastin and collagen into high gear. The result? A beautiful, smooth layer of skin that provides youthfulness to any part of the body that it is used on. 

How Does the Radiofrequency Aspect Work? 

Although microneedling by itself can wield amazing results, using microneedling in conjunction with radiofrequency can often provide much better, long-term results. This is because the radiofrequency ends up delivering specifically controlled heat energy directly into the skin, which is highly concentrated in collagen. This type of microneedling is practically painless and helps improve a number of different skin complexities such as scars, sagging skin, and wrinkles. 

The Advantages of RF Microneedling 

There are several great, proven benefits to RF microneedling. Some of these positives include: 

  • Minimizes pore size, wrinkles and fine lines overall 
  • Fades hyperpigmentation 
  • Evens out skin tone and dark spots 
  • Smooths out scars 
  • Tightens the skin  
  • Opens the skin to topical skincare products 

What to Expect Post-Treatment 

When you come out of this treatment, there are a few things to expect. One of them is slightly reddened skin; it will almost look as though you have a sunburn. Depending on how sensitive your skin is, this may end up being paired with some swelling. All these things will usually subside within two to three days after the treatment. 

Within the week after having this procedure done, you will want to be sure to use sunscreen generously, as well as use a gentle cleanser/moisturizer duo. This will ensure the skin stays as protected as possible during this time of fragility. You may also notice some light shedding and tightening of the skin- this is completely normal.
