This month, we’re delving into a breakthrough procedure that combines two powerhouse techniques: Microneedling and Radiofrequency. If you’ve been on the hunt for a minimally invasive treatment that addresses a wide range of skin issues while offering lasting results, this blog is for you. Read on to find out what makes Exion Microneedling + Radiofrequency a game-changer in the world of dermatology.
What is Exion Microneedling + Radiofrequency?
Exion Microneedling + Radiofrequency is a next-generation skincare treatment that combines the collagen-inducing benefits of microneedling with the tissue-tightening advantages of radiofrequency energy. This synergistic approach enhances the effectiveness of each individual treatment, delivering faster and more remarkable results.
The Science Behind the Technique
Here’s how it works:
Microneedling involves the use of a device with fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. When the skin sustains an injury, it goes into a natural repair process that includes the production of new collagen—a protein that’s crucial for skin strength and elasticity. Microneedling strategically uses this natural reaction to improve skin texture and appearance. It’s a form of ‘controlled injury’ that prompts your body to heal itself, thereby improving various skin conditions.
Radiofrequency utilizes low-energy radiation to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat encourages tightened collagen structures and stimulates additional collagen production, which firms and tightens the skin over time.
Exion Microneedling + RF allows the microneedles to deliver the radiofrequency energy directly into the dermis. This allows for a more targeted approach, ensuring the radiofrequency energy penetrates deeper layers, maximizing collagen and elastin production while minimizing surface-level skin damage.
What Can It Treat?
The combined effect of Exion Microneedling + RF is impressive and versatile, offering solutions for ALL SKIN TYPES! It can also help target:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Experience a dramatic reduction in the appearance of facial lines.
- Skin Tightening: Sagging skin can be noticeably lifted and tightened.
- Acne Scars: The combination therapy significantly reduces the depth and appearance of acne scars.
- Enlarged Pores: Minimize the size of enlarged pores more effectively than with either treatment alone.
- Stretch Marks: Though more challenging to treat, a noticeable improvement in stretch marks can be achieved.
The Procedure: What to Expect
- Consultation: As always, a preliminary consultation is crucial to determine your eligibility for the procedure.
- Preparation: Your skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied if requested, but is not necessary with the Exion device.
- Treatment: The Exion device is used to simultaneously perform microneedling while delivering RF energy.
- Post-Treatment: A calming serum will be applied, and you’ll be briefed on aftercare procedures.
Aftercare and Downtime
Expect some redness and slight swelling for 24-48 hours after the treatment. However, most patients can resume normal activities within this timeframe. Sun protection and gentle skincare are essential for facilitating the healing process and optimizing results.
