Unlock Radiant Skin: The Power of Radiofrequency Microneedling

Updated: Feb 11

Radiofrequency microneedling is an advanced treatment in facial aesthetics that combines two effective technologies: microneedling and radiofrequency energy.

This treatment has been gaining popularity due to its ability to address multiple skin concerns and provide excellent results. It is minimally invasive, requires little to no downtime, and provides noticeable results. 

Microneedling involves the use of a device with small, fine needles that create controlled micro-injuries on the skin's surface. These micro-injuries are not visible to the naked eye but are enough to stimulate the skin's healing response. These micro-injuries stimulate the skin's healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy and radiant skin.

In combination, radiofrequency energy is precisely delivered to the deeper layers of the skin through the same microneedles. This controlled energy application effectively heats the tissue, triggering collagen remodeling, skin tightening, and an overall improvement in skin texture and tone.

The combination of microneedling and radiofrequency enhances the treatment's effectiveness by targeting both superficial and deep layers of the skin simultaneously. It can address various concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and overall skin rejuvenation.

It is suitable for a range of skin types and can be customised to address specific skin concerns.

What to Expect

During a radiofrequency microneedling treatment, a medical device is used that combines microneedles and radiofrequency energy. Here's a step-by-step explanation of the treatment process:

1. Cleanse and prep: The treatment area is cleansed and prepared to ensure it is free of any oils, makeup, or dirt.

2. Numbing cream: Topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimise any discomfort.

3. Microneedling: The device used in radiofrequency microneedling has small, fine needles that are adjusted to a specific depth based on the individual's skin concerns.  

4. Radiofrequency energy delivery: The same microneedles used for creating micro-injuries also deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. The radiofrequency energy gently heats the tissue, triggering collagen remodeling and skin tightening. The energy stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, enhancing the overall texture and tone of the skin.

5. Customised settings: The depth of the microneedles and the intensity of the radiofrequency energy is adjusted based on your individual specific skin concerns and sensitivity. This customisation ensures that the treatment is tailored specifically to your needs.

6. Post-treatment care: You will be provided with instructions for post-treatment care, which includes avoiding excessive sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and applying sunscreen.

7. Results and recovery: Results from radiofrequency microneedling can typically be seen after a few weeks and continue over several months as the skin's natural healing process takes time. Some individuals may experience mild redness immediately after the treatment, but these effects usually subside within a few hours to a day. 

It's important to note that the number of sessions required may vary depending on the individual's skin condition and desired results. 

The Benefits

Radiofrequency microneedling offers a range of benefits for improving the skin's texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimising pore size, and overall skin rejuvenation. 

1. Improved skin texture: Radiofrequency microneedling can help to smooth out rough skin texture caused by acne scars, sun damage, or other skin conditions. The microneedles create controlled micro-injuries, stimulating the skin's natural healing process and encouraging the growth of new collagen and elastin. This leads to a smoother, more even skin texture.

2. Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles: The heat generated by radiofrequency energy promotes collagen remodeling, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By stimulating the production of new collagen, radiofrequency microneedling can improve the skin's elasticity and firmness, resulting in a more youthful complexion.

3. Minimisation of pore size: Enlarged pores can be a common concern, especially for those with oily or acne-prone skin. Radiofrequency microneedling can help to tighten the skin and reduce the size of pores, giving the skin a smoother, refined appearance.

4. Overall skin rejuvenation: One of the main benefits of radiofrequency microneedling is its ability to rejuvenate the skin. This treatment can address multiple concerns simultaneously, including sagging skin, dullness, and uneven complexion. By stimulating collagen production and improving cellular turnover, radiofrequency microneedling can give the skin a more renewed and refreshed appearance.

5. Suitable for various skin types: Radiofrequency microneedling can be used on most skin types, including sensitive skin types. The ability to adjust the depth of the micro-needles and the intensity of the radiofrequency energy means that every treatment is tailored to suit each individual's needs. . The versatility of radiofrequency microneedling makes this treatment a suitable option for a wide range of people seeking skin rejuvenation.

Radiofrequency microneedling is an innovative treatment in facial aesthetics that combines two effective technologies, and it is considered safe when performed by a trained professional like Lucy.

It's important to note that results may vary depending on each person's unique skin condition and desired outcomes.

A consultation with Lucy can help determine if radiofrequency microneedling is the right treatment for you.
