Perfectly smooth and flawless skin is everyone’s dream? But sadly there are a lot of common skin problems that stop us from having an unblemished skin. Acne scars, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, reduced skin elasticity, and uneven skin tone are among those common problems.
Won’t it be great if there was a way to get rid of these skin problems? This is where microneedling enters the picture.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that treats all common skin problems. To achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation, microneedling has become quite popular in the past few years. However, an advanced form of microneedling was introduced recently. It is called Radiofrequency Microneedling.
Is RF microneedling better than traditional microneedling? Read this article to find out.
In traditional microneedling, a special pen-like tool fitted with tiny needles is used. It is evenly moved over your skin to create controlled tiny punctures. They are so minute that you won’t even notice them.
These minor punctures stimulate the production of collagen in your skin. Due to this damage the natural healing process of the skin starts and results in the production of elastin and collagen. Consequently, you get firmer and smoother skin.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive but completely safe process. The damage is highly controlled to stimulate elastin and collagen production. It effectively treats most of the common skin problems. In addition to that, microneedling is also being used to reduce and remove stretch marks.
In Radiofrequency microneedling, the radio frequency (RF) energy is added to the traditional microneedling. It delivers even better results. The radiofrequency energy used in this procedure is gentle and doesn’t cause any serious damage.
The radiofrequency energy is used to target the deeper layers to the skin via a specialized device. This device is also fitted with tiny needles. But along with puncturing it also delivers radiofrequency energy. The heat produced due to radiofrequency energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. It results in in more effective and enhanced tightening of the skin. So, RF microneedling is better than the traditional microneedling.
The best thing about both traditional and RF microneedling is that the recovery time is very short. You can resume your daily activities or go back to work after a few hours. Redness might occur but it goes away in 24 to 48 hours.
WHAT MAKES RF MICRONEEDLING BETTER?
RF microneedling is better than the traditional microneedling due to the following reason:
The introduction of RF produces far better results than traditional microneedling. It is capable of treating much more skin problems than the traditional microneedling. Anyone can achieve total facial rejuvenation with RF microneedling. It treats fine lines and Wrinkles, hyperpigmentation stretch marks, acne scars, enlarged pores, sunspots, and skin laxity.
RF microneedling targets deeper layers of the skin without damaging the top layers of the skin. This is possible because the RF energy is delivered past the tip of the tiny needles to deep skin layers. It effectively stimulates collagen production and tightens the skin.
The device used in RF micro-needling treatments is customizable. The puncture depth and RF energy intensity can be easily adjusted for different patients. It depends on the needs of the patient. You can have a minor skin-enhancing treatment or even a deeper skin tightening procedure.
Traditional micro-needling stimulates collagen production but RF micro-needling amplifies the skin tightening process. Thus, it is more effective in reducing wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin problems.
