Keep reading to find out what kind of results you can expect when it comes to smoothing out your skin with RF microneedling.
How does RF microneedling improve skin texture?
RF microneedling combines two types of skin treatment – radiofrequency waves and microneedling tools. In basic microneedling, a device with tiny, thin needles is rolled over the skin, creating tiny punctures or "micro-injuries" that will boost your skin's natural regenerative properties as they heal.
Adding the power of radiofrequency technology to microneedling helps deliver short bursts of heat to your skin at the same time. This helps increase the restorative benefits of the procedure and stimulate collagen production.
While these micro-injuries are visible at first and may also cause some redness and swelling, the procedure is relatively quick. And as your skin heals, you'll notice your skin becoming brighter, smoother, and more even.
At Nadomi Medspa, Dr. Zaknoun uses a state-of-the-art handheld device to release short bursts of RF energy via 25 sterilized, gold-plated microneedles.
What kinds of skin issues can be addressed with RF microneedling?
Since RF microneedling can be used all over the face, the regenerative effects can address a variety of skin issues, including:
Redness and other discoloration and pigmentation issues
Smile lines and other fine lines
Acne and other scars
Irregularities in skin texture
Visible blood vessels
Ultimately, RF microneedling can improve skin texture and smooth skin to give your skin a younger look and rejuvenated glow that can make you eager to show off your face. You can expect a refreshed appearance in the weeks and months following your treatment.
Dr. Zaknoun will tailor your treatment to your specific skin texture concerns and assess your unique issues to deliver results that give you more youthful-looking, vibrant, and smooth skin.
What can I expect from the healing process after RF microneedling?
Seeing optimal results after RF microneedling requires some patience since your skin needs to generate new skin cells and rebuild collagen.
The micro-injuries will likely cause tiny, pinpoint scabs to appear in the 24 – 72 hours after your radiofrequency microneedling treatment. These scabs will shed naturally as your skin heals.
Your new, smooth skin becomes visible in the 3 – 4 weeks following treatment. However, there is minimal downtime, especially compared to other, more invasive aesthetic procedures. Depending on the severity of your skin texture issues, it may take 3 – 4 treatments spaced at least one month apart to see optimal results.
