What Is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an aesthetic treatment, which uses fractional radiofrequency energy and tiny needles to make incisions on the skin at a specific area while boosting elastin and collagen production. By enhancing collagen and elastin production, you can naturally achieve toned, tighter, and more rejuvenated skin with time.
What Is the Significance of Radiofrequency Microneedling?
At Marina Medispa, the team of expert aesthetic specialists uses RF microneedling for a variety of functions. These include reducing wrinkles and fine lines, enhancing skin texture, reduced stretch marks and large pores, and cellulite reduction. RF microneedling also helps with skin firming and tightening, enhanced hyaluronic acid production, diminished surgical and acne scars, and skin texture resurfacing. Another benefit of this procedure is that it’s nearly painless and doesn’t require downtime or surgery.
What to Expect With Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Before recommending or performing an RF microneedling procedure, Dr. Metelitsin conducts medical cross-checks and evaluates your skin to determine if you are the right candidate for treatment. Dr. Metelitsin may advise you to avoid certain medications, alcohol, or skincare products for a while before treatment.
To make the procedure feel comfortable, Dr. Metelitsin applies a topical numbing cream on the treatment area. She places the hand-operated microneedling device onto your skin to help create small microtears on it and gently dissipate radiofrequency energy to heat up the skin and boost collagen production. A treatment session will take around one hour, but varies according to the treatment area’s size.
What to Expect Following Treatment?
Following an RF microneedling procedure, you may experience swelling, redness, and mild bruising around the treatment area but calls for minimal downtime. Some patients will use ice to reduce the swelling. The redness should alleviate in about 24 hours so that you can immediately go back to your regular daily routine.
To help patients achieve optimal results, Dr. Metelitsin and her expert team recommend a series of 2-4 treatments, scheduled a few weeks apart. Improvements in your skin’s condition are realized within 3 to 6 months following your first RF microneedling procedure. More profound improvements will be realized with time.
In conclusion, you should not let the signs of aging or other skin flaws take a toll on your self-confidence. At Marina Medispa, Dr. Metelitsin leads a team of aesthetic specialists in offering personalized cosmetic care that meets and exceeds their patient’s unique needs.
