A new, nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure, Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, deserves your attention. Praised as one of the most eﬀective methods to treat acne scares and prevent signs of aging, this popularity of this procedure is soaring.
How Does It Work?
So, what is RF Microneedling? Let’s break it down.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles, which then triggers your skin’s repair process and collagen production.
Radiofrequency is the use of high-intensity energy waves that penetrate deep into the dermis and deliver pulses of thermal energy to stimulate collagen and elastin growth.
When combined, RF microneedling uses tiny insulated needles to penetrate through the skin and deliver high-intensity radio frequency energy into the targeted, broken tissue. This has been clinically proven to stimulate collagen and elastic production to restore your complexion with new, healthy tissue.
The results? Tighter, firmer, smoother skin over a series of 3 - 4 sessions.
What Are the Benefits?
