If you aren’t happy with the texture and quality of your skin, consider microneedling treatments with RF. This is a service that could give you a healthy, youthful glow and also change your life.
Microneedling is a type of cosmetic treatment where a series of tiny injections disturb your skin cells enough that the natural healing process is triggered. This encourages your skin cells to rejuvenate and revive older, damaged skin so that it has a tighter, more youthful appearance.
As skin ages and is exposed to harmful conditions such as direct sunlight as well as damage from acne, its healthy glow can deteriorate and dark spots and uneven tones can appear. Older skin also slows in producing powerful substances like collagen that keep it elastic and supple. Microneedling causes the skin to renew and produce those substances in larger amounts.
There are several different types of microneedling, and RF microneedling or radiofrequency microneedling is on the cutting edge of this treatment. This treatment uses special needles that can introduce intense energy into the skin. This addition to a regular microneedling treatment provides better benefits in all areas. Skin is tightened more efficiently and results are faster.
RF microneedling is a powerful treatment that can address even deep scarring and extreme loss of fatty deposits that cause the skin to sag. The heat from the RF energy just under the skin causes it to constrict and tighten while skin cells begin to rebuild themselves and revitalize.

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines across the top of your forehead that appear when you make certain facial expressions. You may also have worry lines. These are the two vertical lines that are seen between your eyebrows.
A lack of moisture and collagen can make the wrinkles on your forehead area grow deeper over time. Your sessions will tighten the skin in your forehead and release collagen to make it smoother.
There are different kinds of wrinkles and skin problems that aging can create around the eyes. The wrinkles that you see in this area tend to be more shallow and more delicate than wrinkles in other parts of your face. You may see crow’s feet, which are the wrinkles that form on the outside corners of your eyes. You may also have small lines around the rest of the eye.
Another issue with this area is sagging skin underneath the eyes that can cause you to look older or tired. This skin can be tightened with the heat from the microneedling device and the skin cells will work to create more supple skin.
The cheeks are another area where age, dryness, and a lack of collagen can lead to sunken areas on your face. This may also cause your cheekbones to stand out in a way that can make you look older than you are. The collagen created through rejuvenated skin cells will help plump the skin in your cheeks and provide you with a more youthful, softer appearance.
Small lines can form on and around the nose. Wrinkles commonly seen just beneath the nose are nasolabial folds or smile lines. These types of wrinkles are easily treated with microneedling therapy.
There are different types of wrinkles that form around the mouth. Two of these are smoker’s lines and marionette lines. Smokers’ lines are small creases around your lips that show up most easily when you make a motion used in smoking. Marionette lines are verticle wrinkles that run in verticle lines from your mouth to your chin.
Wrinkles may also form on and around the chin. This is commonly seen in horizontal lines in the center of the chin. You may also experience a double-chin. This is caused by a reduction in fatty deposits as well as gravity that pulls the skin down. RF Microneedling is a good way of tightening this area.
Skin around the jawline, or jowls, can become loose over time and can cause you to look older. Tightening these areas will give you a more youthful appearance.
The neck can also develop loose skin and creases over time and can be tightened and made more supple and elastic through this type of treatment.
Loose areas of skin on the chest will become smoother and tighter when the rejuvenation of skin cells is stimulated. Skin in that area may have dark spots or an uneven texture that can make you seem older.
Other areas of the body that can be treated with microneedling include loose upper arms. You may also have stretch marks in this area that you would like to eliminate.
Your knee joint is also a place where you can see wrinkles and creases form as your skin ages. This treatment will help your knees look young and tight.
The first step in the treatment is to come in for a consultation. We will ask you questions about your dissatisfaction with your skin, and we will assess the area to see the reasons for the problem. Then we will talk to you about your best treatment options and whether you are a good candidate for microneedling with RF.
We will ask you some questions about your lifestyle, including whether you smoke, wear sunscreen, or take any medication. We will also ask you about skincare therapies you have tried in the past.
When you come in for your first session we will carefully clean your skin so no bacteria can get in through the needles Then we will apply a topical anesthetic that will keep you comfortable throughout the treatment.
When your skin has been properly prepared, we will roll a device over your skin that will use 49 tiny needles to create very small punctures in the surface of your skin where RF energy will be directed. Depending on how much skin needs to be treated and how deep into the skin your issues are, you may need up to 3 applications during this session.
You will see the results of the treatment gradually over time. Within the first 2 weeks, you may notice changes in the texture of your skin, and your skin may seem brighter and healthier. Within about 2 months you should see a reduction in scarring and a decrease in wrinkles and lines.
Most patients require 2 to 3 sessions to get the optional results for the treatment. These are typically scheduled around 4 to 6 weeks apart. The number of sessions you will need depends on the sie of the area to be treated as well as the intensity of the issues you are hoping to correct. We will talk to you about how many sessions to plan for in addressing your specific needs.
