This treatment is also called collagen induction therapy.
It is a minimally invasive treatment that can reduce the appearance of:
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Sagging skin
– Stretch marks
– Large pores
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling follows the same process as regular Microneedling, but with the addition of radio frequency energy. This further encourages the stimulation of your body’s natural collagen production and healing processes, leading to firmer skin that feels rejuvenated.
How Does It Work?
RF Microneedling uses a rolling device to create tiny channels in the top layer of the skin. This, along with the RF energy which is delivered deep into your dermis, encourages your body to create new elastin and collagen. This leads to improved texture, increased firmness, and the healing of any old scars and imperfections.
In addition to improving the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles, RF Microneedling will leave your skin looking radiant, smooth and tight. The radio frequency energy assists by stimulating your body’s natural healing processes.
You can treat just about any part of your body with Microneedling and radiofrequency. See below for the list of treatments we offer.
When Will I See Results?
You can expect to see results within 3-6 months. The exact time frame will depend on the issue you are treating.
Is there any downtime?
There’s no downtime for this procedure, so you will be free to go back to your normal activities straight away.
However, you will need to wear SPF in the weeks following your treatment as your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun.
It’s not recommended to wear makeup in the 24 hours after your procedure.
A local anaesthetic will be applied to your skin prior to treatment, so the process itself is not overly painful. However, if you experience any discomfort afterwards, you can use an ice pack to reduce swelling.
How many sessions do I need?
Most people will need at least four sessions. The number of sessions you’ll need will also depend on what you are treating. For example, larger scars will require more treatments than smaller scars.
You should have sessions every 3-8 weeks, allowing time for your skin to heal between treatments.
We recommend that you have a touch-up session once per year to maintain your results.
No downtime, but SPF is mandatory while your skin is healing.
