What Is RF Microneedling?
RF microneedling is named for the two components involved in its skin rejuvenation approach: the pixilation effect that appears in the skin from microneedles and the radiofrequency energy that it delivers to the skin. Through the small punctures and the introduction of radiofrequency energy deep into the tissues, vertical microchannels are formed in the skin. This creates a controlled injury using both heat energy and manual punctures. These microchannels then cause the body’s natural healing process to go into overdrive. By creating this minor damage, collagen production is boosted, and new, healthy tissue is created. Collagen plays a vital role in the skin’s health, creating the look of healthy, youthful skin. When the skin is damaged through UV rays, the natural aging process, disease, trauma, collagen loss, and skin irregularities or signs of aging occur. RF microneedling is a treatment that helps rejuvenate the skin through increased collagen production. Because the transformation begins at the deepest layer of skin, the dermis, cellular improvements will continue for 6-8 weeks after each treatment.
