Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
When it comes to skin care, chances are you’ve already heard of microneedling, which has been around since the mid-1990s. Perhaps you’ve also heard of radiofrequency (RF) therapy. Both approaches aim to stimulate cellular turnover deep under the skin. When used together – in a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling – this aesthetic procedure can pack a powerful, anti-aging punch.
RF Microneedling: a Nonsurgical Face-Lift
Radiofrequency microneedling combines the best of two distinct procedures:
- Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin – controlled damage, essentially – that stimulates the natural healing process deep under your skin. Brand-new skin cells ultimately replace damaged, wrinkled, or unevenly textured skin.
- Radiofrequency skin care treatments send energy waves through the skin to heat the dermis, one of the deeper layers of your skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to tighten and smooth the skin.
RF microneedling is much more effective than either procedure alone. It’s also much more convenient, immediate, less costly, and doesn’t require a recovery period typical of a surgical face-lift.
What to Expect
During a RF microneedling treatment, your UniMed Center provider will gently and slowly move a hand-held device over the skin on your face. The device creates teeny tiny punctures in the skin and delivers radio waves into the area, enhancing the effects of the microneedling and triggering cellular turnover deep under the skin. In a way, RF microneedling harnesses your body’s natural healing abilities to rejuvenate your skin in a targeted, efficient manner. The entire procedure generally takes less than an hour to complete.
Radiofrequency microneedling is used to reduce wrinkles, scarring, saggy skin, large pores, and more.
