When it comes to revitalizing the skin and improving blemishes, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is the next level minimally invasive solution for patients. It’s a big name, but it earns it by offering unrivaled personalization and versatility. Radiofrequency microneedling isn’t a quick fix, but patience pays off in more ways than you ever imagined.
Next Level Microneedling
RF microneedling creates controlled micro-tears in the skin that trigger the body’s wound healing response. Simultaneously, RF energy enters into the skin, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. The procedure involves cleaning and applying a numbing cream to the treatment area first. A handheld device fitted with semi-insulated ultra-fine needles is pressed into your skin, stamping it across the area. As the needles enter the skin, they emit RF heat energy directly into the dermis.
It lasts between 30-45 minutes and will typically require multiple sessions. It’s normal after the procedure to experience some slight swelling, but it should dissipate in 24-48 hours. Downtime is minimal, and you can return to regular duties the next day or as soon as you feel comfortable.
Texas Dermatology uses Cynosure’s Potenza™ Radiofrequency Microneedling Device. The Potenza is the first FDA cleared four-mode RF microneedling device. The modes offer two different frequencies and the ability to treat more extensive or more concentrated areas at different depths. The procedure can be performed anywhere on the body and all skin types.
- It can cover larger areas, so sessions are quicker
- Improvements to the quality and texture of the skin
- Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Helps with skin laxity issues
- Minimizes the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
Collagen and elastin take time to produce, though surface improvements are noticeable within the first 1-2 weeks. Deeper, structural benefits reach maximal improvement in a few months after the final session. Depending on intensity and area treated, results last from 1 to 2 years on average.
