Microneedling RF Q & A

What is microneedling and what can it treat?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that works by creating hundreds of tiny injuries in the layers of your skin. Your body responds to those injuries by producing new collagen and elastin, which plumps your skin and gives you a more rested, youthful appearance.

Microneedling can improve the appearance of the following:

  • Wrinkles
  • Loose or sagging skin
  • Acne or other scarring
  • Large pores
  • Dull skin
  • Stretch marks
  • General texture issues

Many men and women consider microneedling to be a great option that delivers more impressive results than peels or facials, but without the risks associated with cosmetic surgery.

How is radiofrequency (RF) integrated into microneedling?

RF skin treatments use carefully controlled energy to heat your skin cells just enough to trigger your body’s natural healing processes. One of the biggest advantages of RF treatments is the fact that the process doesn’t target the melanin in your skin the way that many lasers do. That makes this treatment a good option for men and women with darker skin tones.

At Elation MedSpa & Laser Center, microneedling RF is performed using the Fraxis™ DUO platform. This system combines a high-power CO2 laser and fractional RF microneedling. It can be used on multiple areas of your body and has several different modes to customize your sessions.

How does microneedling radiofrequency (RF) work?

First, your aesthetic professional applies a numbing cream to keep your skin comfortable. Then he or she performs the procedure with a handpiece with a tip that is covered with incredibly thin sterile needles. As he or she glides the handpiece across the surface of your skin, those needles are stamped into the deeper layers of your skin, creating microenergy.

What makes this treatment unique is that the RF heats each of those tiny needles, increasing stimulation. Your body responds by creating new collagen, smoothing your skin’s surface and erasing fine lines, scar tissue, and textural abnormalities.

How many microneedling radiofrequency (RF) treatments will I need?

You’ll likely notice a huge improvement after just one session, but additional may be needed to achieve the best results. The number of sessions depends on the extent of your skin concerns and how your body responds to the treatments.

During your initial free consultation, Dr. Rastamloo evaluates your aesthetic needs and goals and advises you on how many treatments it should take to maximize your individual results.
