RF Microneedling Explained


RF Microneedling is a highly effective revolutionary treatment to stimulate new collagen production and lift and tighten the skin without surgery and downtime. The treatment can be used at various areas of the face and body to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin, tighten and lift saggy skin, improve skin texture and treat common skin issues such as scarring and more.Loss of collagen is one of the hallmarks of the aging process in the skin. The result is crepey, saggy, and loose skin, wrinkles and folds, and loss of youthful glow and texture of the skin. Luckily, our skin has the inherent ability and potential to heal and rejuvenate itself but the cells responsible for this miraculous turn-over (the fibroblasts) are often dormant and inactive. Many treatments offered in cosmetic medicine seek to activate and stimulate fibroblasts and other cells in our skin to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin. Radiofrequency-Microneedling or RF Microneedling is one of the most effective treatments to achieve this goal.


How Does RF Microneedling Work?


RF Microneedling combines 2 highly effective treatment modalities in one non-surgical and non-invasive treatment and allows the patients to see the benefits of both treatments in one convenient session:
  • Microneedling works by creating thousands of small channels in the skin as the needling device is rolled and applied over the skin. Each of the micro-channels works to signal the body to activate the healing process and recruit the fibroblasts to start rebuilding and renewing the skin.
  • Radiofrequency treatments work by inducing high temperature in the treated area delivered by radiofrequency waves, which is also seen by the body as a signal to start the healing and rejuvenation process, leading to further synthesis and remodeling of collagen and other components of the extra-cellular matrix that are critical for healthy and youthful skin.
RF Microneedling combines these two treatments together: It has a specific single-use needle cartridge that punches tiny holes (micro-channels) into the skin to a specific depth (varying between 0.5 to 3.5 mm as set by your clinician depending on the area of the treatment and skin condition). Once the microneedles reach their target depth, radiofrequency energy is delivered to the skin through the tips of the needles (or throughout the body of the needles). This highly focused and localized energy is absorbed by the target layer of the skin (epidermis, dermis, and sub-dermal tissues) and triggers the healing and rejuvenation process of the skin which leads to collagen production and renewing skin.


How Does RF Microneedling Compare With Lasers?


RF Microneedling delivers localized thermal energy to the specific target layer of the treatment. The treatment can be safely done on all skin types with minimal risk of skin reaction and pigmentation. The specific depth of treatment is tightly controlled by your clinician by setting the penetration depth of the needles.

In contrast, lasers target specific pigments in the skin, and to reach their target, lasers should pass through other layers and tissues which can lead to their energy being scattered and absorbed by other tissues. This can result in a reduced level of energy reaching the specific target, and the energy absorbed by other tissues can given rise to complications such as pigmentation. Most often, the skin type must be determined and the energy level of the treatment should be carefully set to match the specific skin type of the patient to maximize treatment effectiveness while minimizing the risk of side effects.


RF Microneedling - What to Expect on Treatment Day?


During your consultation, we provide you with the information to get ready for your treatment as well as important precautions and post-treatment care instructions. Before doing the RF Microneedling, you should be off aggressive skincare treatments such as retinol and AHAs for at least 4 days and do not have any contraindication for the treatment.

Upon arrival to your appointment, we first apply medical-grade numbing cream for maximal comfort during the treatment. Approximately 30-45 minutes later, you will be asked to wash your face and we will start the treatment which might include multiple passes at various depths depending on the treatment area. The active treatment session may take 15-30 minutes depending on the areas being treated. Most patients will experience very mild or minimal pain and discomfort.


RF Microneedling - What to Expect Following the Treatment?


If present, redness, and swelling normally diminish within 3 days. Pin-point bleeding at sites of micro-channels made by the needles is transient and typically stops within minutes. Some patients might experience minor discomfort following the treatment which usually resolves within hours without the need of using pain killers. The treated areas might itch and have a burning sensation (like a sunburn) which is transient and expected to subside within 24 hours.

In some patients, crusting might develop within 1-2 days after the treatment which usually slough off over the next 3-5 days although it might take up to 2 weeks to fully clear.

 

RF Microneedling - How Many Sessions Are Needed and How Often?


Each patient is different and individual results may vary. If desired or recommended by your technician, treatment can be repeated as early as 1 month apart. Recommended total number of treatment sessions will be determined during the consultation and subsequent follow-up visits as needed. For treatment of hyperhidrosis, monthly sessions can be done until desired results are achieved.
