How much do you know about microneedling RF (alternatively called radiofrequency microneedling) and its many benefits?
Today, we here at Clear Skin Solutions detail what microneedling RF is, the myriad benefits of radiofrequency microneedling, and how our microneedling RF process works!
An Overview of Microneedling RF
Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on carefully-controlled skin injury: by combining skin-puncturing using tiny needles and radiofrequency waves that “reawaken” skin cells, this controlled damage prompts the growth of healthy new skin cells.
Unlike traditional microneedling, which works on its own to promote collagen and elastin production, the addition of radiofrequency helps to stimulate these results by delivering energy deep into the dermis which, in turn, heats underlying layers of skin to further enhance skin tightening and skin cell renewal.
In comparison to treatments such as chemical peels or dermabrasion, both microneedling RF and traditional microneedling are minimally invasive and require zero downtime. As such, both microneedling RF and traditional microneedling are popular treatments for acne scars, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Why Clear Skin Solutions Loves the Benefits of Microneedling
The Clear Skin Solutions team has found, through experience, that microneedling yields the best results when used in tandem with other procedures or products.
This ability to be paired with other treatments is one of the many reasons why we consider it our go-to for skin rejuvenation, scarring reduction, and pigmentation reversal.
What is key is to not only reverse inflammation, which is the first step in any and every treatment protocol, but also trigger the correct skin response to stimulate the cell-to-cell communication required for fibroblasts and collagen production without the scarring that more intense treatments can create.
When done correctly, microneedling RF promotes:
- Heightened skin elasticity
- Diminished fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduced acne scarring
- Significantly mitigated hyperpigmentation
As with any in-spa treatment, however, we cannot schedule the correct procedures for your skin without first delving into its history and current condition. While we perform microneedling RF as well as traditional microneedling, we insist on an initial consultation to guarantee that this procedure is what’s suitable for your skin’s needs and goals, as is the case for all of our treatments. (For example, we highly recommend avoiding microneedling when acne is active, as it can inadvertently promote further breakouts!)
How Frequently to Receive Microneedling RF for Optimal Results
As a slow and health-driven treatment with zero downtime, microneedling RF is considered by skin specialists to be a game-changer when it comes to skin rejuvenation because of its ability to quicken the rejuvenation process due to a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling.
We here at Clear Skin Solutions recommend a minimum of three treatments, with those who struggle with scarring or visible signs of aging requiring more. To keep your skin at its healthiest, yearly microneedling RF appointments are advised.
How to Maintain Your Radiofrequency Microneedling Results at Home
After every microneedling RF treatment, your skin therapist will go over what they recommend to keep your results long-lasting.
Here are our top two tips for at-home post-treatment care:
Forgo Your At-Home DIY Skin Care Gadgets
Let’s start this off with a little story: a while back, we had a client come in. Shortly into her appointment, she revealed that she had every possible DIY skin care gadget under the sun!
Clarisonics, microdermabrasion tools, facial steamers… this client had it all! However, while she claimed that her skin was in “tip-top” shape, she found that her skin was feeling tight and uncomfortable. Lo and behold, while her skin looked fine to the naked eye, our advanced skin analysis screening tools quickly uncovered that her skin was highly inflamed and riddled with under-the-skin breakouts.
While these gadgets are a hindrance to your skin at the best of times due to the ability to easily over-use them and damage your complexion in the process, it is especially important to avoid them while your skin is healing from microneedling RF to avoid being too harsh with your skin and damaging the newly-formed skin cells.
Focus On Quality At-Home Skin Care
Directly after your treatment concludes, your skin therapist will go over what you should be using on your skin at home.
Our top recommendations are:
- The Cascading Infusion – Potent C Serum: This fast-acting multi-C cocktail serum acts as a collagen biosynthesis regulator that helps to trigger long-lasting collagen production. Consistent usage also works to prevent the breakdown of cells due to environmental exposure and soothes damaged skin via its anti-inflammatory properties.
- The Youth-Restoring Elixir: This revitalizing formula utilizes triple plant stem cells to target age-related skin cell degradation and enhance the texture and elasticity of mature skin.
- Protection E & C Lightly Tinted SPF 40: This replenishing SPF 40 not only offers broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection but also aids in the repair of existing sun damage.
