Clear, smooth, bright, and beautiful skin is the dream of many people. It can boost self-esteem and make you feel more confident. However, the journey to perfect skin does not happen overnight, especially when thinking about reducing aging signs and scarring.
If you are looking for an anti-aging treatment to brighten your skin, microneedling is an excellent option. Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that improves the skin’s appearance, tone, and texture. At First State MedSpa, we offer Pixel RF Microneedling to help transform your skin. Here’s a quick guide to this excellent treatment.
A Guide to RF Microneedling
Microneedling involves multiple elements. Here are several things you should know that can help you make informed decisions about this procedure.
How Often You Can Do Microneedling
Understanding treatment frequency for RF microneedling is essential to getting the most out of your results. The recommended treatment frequency is four to six weeks apart for optimal skin rejuvenation. It depends on the severity of your symptoms, but it is essential to be consistent with your treatment for best results. Our team will recommend the number of treatments needed to fully treat your concerns.
How Radio Frequency Microneedling Works
RF (radiofrequency) microneedling combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling. This energy-based treatment reduces skin scarring, sagging, and wrinkles. During treatment, the handpiece emits radiofrequency waves to stimulate the body’s regenerative response and produce more collagen. Additionally, the process of microneedling creates tiny wounds in the skin that prompt it to repair itself with new collagen. The procedure can take 30 to 60 minutes total based on your treatment plan.
Why Radiofrequency Makes Microneedling Better
Compared to traditional microneedling, radiofrequency stimulates additional collagen production and contracts loose skin. When combined with microneedling, it doubles the effectiveness of the treatment because it can reach deeper into the skin than other radiofrequency treatments. This allows it to more effectively stimulate and contract the collagen matrix under the skin.
What Can RF Microneedling Treat?
Radiofrequency microneedling can treat different skin issues such as visible pores, fine lines, scars, skin laxity, uneven skin tone, thin and wrinkled skin, dryness, and more. Our skincare experts can help you determine whether RF microneedling is the best option for your goals.
Why Microneedling Is Ideal For Anti-Aging
This is an ideal treatment for anti-aging because it removes visible signs such as fine lines, wrinkles, rough skin, and other age-related skin conditions. Microneedling increases skin thickness and collagen levels, reversing some of the visible effects of aging.
Ideal Candidates for RF Microneedling
RF microneedling is an excellent option for many patients. This includes those concerned about visible signs of aging, skin tone, acne scars, and anyone wanting to refresh and rejuvenate their skin. It can also be used on other body parts such as the legs, back, neck, hands, arms, and abdomen.
Is RF Microneedling Painful
RF Microneedling is comfortable for most people but, for those that find the depth of the hair-thin needles too uncomfortable, we provide the option of using ProNox® a new Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen self-administered inhalant that is similar to what many dentists use, but due to the addition of oxygen, the client can return to feeling normal again within minutes. This has been shown to calm clients down and helps with any discomfort they may experience. There is a very small additional cost for the administration of it.
