What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Wareham, MA board-certified physician Dr. Nada Zaknoun uses a unique approach that creates fantastic outcomes for our patients with a treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF treatments have been around for many years and are well-known in the cosmetic industry for skin tightening. This particular sort of treatment uses heat to promote the creation of collagen deep within the skin to create a tighter, smoother surface. This therapy can be used with microneedling to optimize the outcomes. At Nadomi Medspa, we frequently incorporate this new advancement to our Wareham, MA patients' skin treatments to produce healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
"I have read the reviews. Dr Zaknoun and her office manager go above and beyond for the patients. I have seen them both interact with patients. The office is small and friendly when you go in they make you feel wanted. Dr Zaknoun made a diagnosis on me and the office had me into to see a specialist that week. I am beyond pleased."- K. / Healthgrades / Jul 17, 2018
"Great experience at Nadomi Medspa!! The atmosphere was spa-like and inviting and the service was exceptional. I had the microneedling and cold facial combo and it was amazing!!! My skin was so smooth afterwards and the topical numbing cream applied before the procedure made it virtually painless. I would highly recommend Nadomi Medspa and this "next level" facial treatment to anyone wanting to take years off their skin!!"- K.H. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2018
"Love the chemical peels! Makes my acne look so much better!"- K.G. / Facebook / Jan 07, 2018
"Having read the reviews of Dr. Zaknoun I am truly surprised at some of the negative statements. For example, how do you give 36 unauthorized blood tests??? This one must have also be seeing a psychiatrist.Some of the things that Dr. Zaknoun "Always" does with me are, listen to my complaint, asks qualifying questions to clarify my complaint, responds to my complaint / problem by either sending me to a specialist for my problem, prescribing appropriate medications, and scheduling appropriate test"- R.B. / Healthgrades / Oct 30, 2016

Am I A Candidate for RF Microneedling?
If you are 40 years of age or older and are beginning to notice discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin irregularities (which include age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling could be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling may be a great choice if you want to:
- Tighten your skin, creating a more refreshed appearance
- Boost skin feel, tone, and pigment
- Heal skin irregularities, such as blood vessels and discoloration
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Improve acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses a tool (with small needles on the end) that is rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries that "interrupt" the cells and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this as collagen induction therapy. New skin forms as the skin begins to heal, leaving the top layer looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated. While this process is commonly done by itself, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency microneedling technology has allowed us to optimize the results for our patients.
The practice is quite simple. The handheld device that emits radiofrequency heat works by delivering short bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterilized, gold-plated microneedles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and circles back the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy heats at levels that offer cumulative and continuing benefits.
What to Expect After RF Microneedling
Your microneedling sessions will take place in the Nadomi Medspa office with the use of numbing cream to help reduce discomfort. During your procedure, the handpiece will roll over the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. You should anticipate tiny, pinpoint scabs to appear 24 – 72 hours post-procedure, which will naturally shed when the inherent skin has healed. Results become visible as the skin heals over the 3 – 4 weeks after having a microneedling with RF session. Optimal results generally require 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
