What is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment that works by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. During treatment, a rf microneedling device makes small injuries in the skin’s surface, by puncturing the skin with tiny needles. This triggers a healing response in the body, causing the body to produce unusually high amounts of collagen to restore the damage. Since these injuries are controlled and minor, the damage heals very quickly, leaving the skin with a surplus of collagen that is then used to strengthen and rejuvenate the skin. This unique treatment can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Acne scars
- Age spots and discoloration
- Lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Loose or sagging skin
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- And more
How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?
The cost of rf microneedling treatment can vary, as different patients will need varying levels of treatment to achieve their desired results. Typically, this cost comes down to the number of treatment sessions needed and the size of the treatment area. During your consultation, we will assess your goals in order to develop a personalized microneedling treatment plan that will deliver the best results possible. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of your microneedling treatment. We are proud to offer financing options in an effort to make this and other treatment services more affordable for our patients.
What is the RF Microneedling Treatment Like?
The microneedling treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic, numbing the skin to minimize any discomfort that might occur during the microneedling process. Then, the handheld microneedling tool will be applied to the desired treatment area, typically the entire face. You may feel some poking sensations during this process, but many patients find the treatment to be quite tolerable. Once the entire treatment area has been addressed, the treatment is complete - typically in about one hour.
What Can I Expect After the RF Microneedling Treatment?
After the RF microneedling treatment, you can expect some redness and perhaps some minor areas of pinpoint bleeding. However, there is no significant downtime required following the microneedling treatment. While you may choose to slightly adjust your skincare routine for the rest of the day, you will be able to resume all usual activities and skincare habits on the day following your treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from RF Microneedling?
Your skin will begin healing immediately following your rf microneedling treatment, and any side effects should fade within a week, revealing the initial benefits of your rf microneedling session. Most patients notice a significant improvement in skin radiance and texture within just a few weeks of treatment. However, the benefits of treatment are still developing at this point! The body will continue to produce and implement collagen into the skin for months to come. The full benefits of microneedling will be visible approximately three months after treatment, and may continue to improve over time with additional microneedling treatment sessions.
