Can I Obtain Glowing Skin with RF Microneedling Treatments?
Microneedling is a fantastic option for rejuvenating the skin and restoring a more youthful look. At Nadomi Medspa in Wareham, MA, board-certified physician and aesthetic expert Dr. Nada Zaknoun takes the power of microneedling a step further by adding radiofrequency (RF) energy to the procedure with the revolutionary Opus® RF microneedling system. Keep reading to gain a better understanding of how RF microneedling works, what it can do for your skin, and how soon you may be able to see noticeable improvements in your complexion.
What does RF microneedling do?
The collagen-boosting and regenerative effects of RF microneedling can help to improve – or even reverse – many common skin concerns associated with aging, sun damage, and other factors. In fact, RF microneedling is often considered a nonsurgical alternative to facelift surgery for patients hoping to tighten loose skin and refresh droopy features. Some of the most common issues that can be addressed with RF microneedling near Marion and Mattapoisett, MA include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild to moderate skin laxity (loose skin)
- Enlarged pores
- Drooping jowls
- Sagging facial skin
- Sun damage
- Dark spots
- Age spots
- Scaly skin
- Dull skin
- Acne scarring
What to expect during RF microneedling
Prior to your RF microneedling treatment at Nadomi Medspa, the skin will be cleansed, and a topical numbing agent may be applied to minimize discomfort. The treatment itself takes about 30 – 60 minutes to complete and involves passing the Opus RF microneedling handpiece over the skin’s surface to create tiny punctures, or micro-injuries, to the skin. As the micro-injuries are created, the Opus system also delivers radiofrequency energy to heat deeper tissues. This combination of techniques works to stimulate the body’s healing process, cell regeneration, and collagen production.
How long does it take the skin to heal after RF microneedling?
Almost immediately after an RF microneedling session, patients can expect some level of redness, inflammation, and irritation. The skin may itch, tingle, or feel more sensitive than normal. These side effects of RF microneedling are typically mild and resolve within about 24 – 48 hours. After this time, the micro-injuries will scab over and begin to flake away. During the recovery period after RF microneedling, it is critical for patients to keep the skin moisturized and protected from the sun, as well as to avoid using harsh cleansers, exfoliants, and certain skin care products.
How soon will my skin look tighter after RF microneedling?
On average, it takes about 4 – 6 weeks for the effects of microneedling to become apparent, though many patients report smoother, clearer, healthier-looking skin after just 1 – 2 weeks. Most men and women can expect to require a series of about 3 – 4 RF microneedling sessions to achieve their desired outcome. During your initial consultation for RF microneedling in the Marion, MA area, Dr. Zaknoun will assess your skin concerns, discuss your goals, and recommend the most appropriate RF microneedling treatment schedule for you. With consistent treatments over time, a stunning complexion and a more youthful look can last for years to come.
