Microneedling with RF uses a microneedling device that emits RF (radiofrequency) energy into the skin. This combination treatment stimulates the skin to heal and rejuvenate itself for skin that looks smoother and more even-toned with fewer lines and wrinkles. It will also look tighter and firmer as new collagen helps remodel it. We offer several types of microneedling to suit your skin type and needs, Scarlet RF Microneedling being the most popular one.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling stimulates collagen production in the skin, which helps to make the skin look firmer, younger, and smoother. Microneedling has been a popular treatment for years, but the addition of RF energy stimulates even more collagen development at deeper layers of tissue, enhancing the effects. We can also incorporate PRP with Scarlet and we usually recommend a package of 3 treatments. PRP is your own growth cells we get after drawing your blood and spinning it.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create channels in the skin. This triggers the cells around the area to immediately produce a cascade of healing factors that refresh and renew your skin. The RF energy enhances this effect by transferring its energy into the deeper layers of skin, where it triggers the healing process.
What is Microneedling Like?
This outpatient procedure takes anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour, depending on whether the type of microneedling requires a numbing treatment. With available numbing medication, we make sure you feel as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?
You may be a good candidate if you want to see tighter, firmer, more rejuvenated skin without intensive downtime. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult with their doctor, as should anyone else with a medical condition that might affect normal healing.
Is There Any Downtime with RF Microneedling?
You will not have any downtime, although you may experience a few hours of redness or sensitivity. The channels created by microneedling close as soon as the skin around them begins its repair processes.
What Results Can I Expect From RF Microneedling?
You can expect that RF Microneedling will lead to tighter, firmer skin with more sculpted features, as well as a brighter and more youthful appearance and skin tone. Lines and wrinkles fade or disappear, along with hyperpigmentation and signs of sun damage.
