Micro Needling with RF
WHAT DOES MICRO NEEDLING DO?
The body begins repairing these micro injuries by producing collagen. The new collagen helps reduce pore size, diminish fine lines and scars, improve skin texture, and improve skin firmness.
MICRO NEEDLING IS MOST OFTEN USED TO:
- Tighten loose or sagging skin
- Treat sun damage
- Diminish fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Reduce scars, particularly those caused by acne
- Correct pigmentation, including melasma.
MICRONEEDLING RF AS PART OF AN ACNE SCAR TREATMENT PLAN
Micro Needling RF works to smooth out the acne scars that plague so many people by stimulating new collagen and elastic in the deep layers of the skin while bypassing the most superficial layer which is most prone to side effects and prolonged downtime. Before Micro Needling RF, many treatments were provided with aggressive lasers or deep chemical peels that patients found difficult to fit into their busy lifestyle. Furthermore, many of these devices were not safe for patients with

layer downtime of previous technologies.
By delivering the majority of the energy to the mid-level dermis, MicroNeedling RF targets the skin’s underlying support system of collagen fibers and restructures any areas that have damage due to acne scarring. Rebuilding the skin’s support system allows the epidermis, the top-most layer of the skin, to be smooth and strong. This is this as similar to rebuilding a cracked foundation in a house, allowing all of the layers above that foundation to be stronger, stabilized, and in their proper place.
In the skin, this often means replacing the support “holes” in the dermis, which cause sunken-in scars, like an ice pick and box scars to form.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR TREATMENT
If you are wearing makeup, your face will be gently cleansed. A topical anesthetic cream will be applied, and you’ll relax while it takes effect. The micro needling with RF treatment itself is relatively painless. You will likely feel pressure from the treatment head, and may feel an occasional zing from the radio frequency. Depending on the area(s) being treated, the micro needling with RF treatment typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
For the first few days after your micro needling with RF treatment, you do need to avoid overheating the skin. During the first 48 hours following treatment, you should avoid saunas, hot showers and baths, heavy workouts, direct sun exposure, and swimming (due to chlorine). You also need to refrain from shaving or using makeup (except healing Lycogel) for 48 hours post-treatment.
Results become visible as the skin heals over the 3 to 4 weeks following a micro needling with RF treatment. Optimal results usually require a series of 3 to 4 treatments, each 3 to 4 weeks apart.
