Will My Skin Look Silky Smooth After RF Microneedling?
Age, genetics, hormones, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices can wear on the skin, creating rough patches, wrinkles, and discoloration. Fortunately, radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is an excellent cosmetic intervention for rejuvenating the skin and stimulating collagen production to reveal a youthful, radiant complexion. At RejuvaMed Skin & Body, our team of body contouring specialists works with individuals throughout King City, OR and the surrounding areas to help them achieve beautiful, radiant skin.
What is RF microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate damaged or aging skin. RF energy gently heats the skin through microneedles that puncture the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Both of these proteins are essential for new skin cell development and maintaining tissue firmness and elasticity. At RejuvaMed Skin & Body, our team assesses the unique conditions of each patient’s skin to determine if RF microneedling is the appropriate cosmetic treatment path.
Will my skin look silky smooth after RF microneedling?
Since RF microneedling stimulates the body’s natural capacity to produce collagen and elastin, treatments result in new skin cell development, allowing for damaged or aging skin to heal. Once the skin recovers from RF microneedling treatment, the tissue becomes smoother, softer, and firmer.
Skin conditions that are treated with RF microneedling
RF microneedling can be an appropriate treatment for numerous skin conditions, including:
- Textured or uneven skin
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Sun damage and sun spots
- Sagging skin
- Stretch marks
Am I an ideal candidate for RF microneedling?
Both men and women may be excellent candidates for RF microneedling if they:
- Are in good general health
- Have signs of aging that can be appropriately addressed with RF microneedling treatments
- Have realistic cosmetic expectations
Our team of specialists will carefully assess your skin and review your medical history to determine if you can safely undergo RF microneedling treatments. Individuals with specific medical conditions may not qualify for RF microneedling or may be better suited for alternative cosmetic treatments.
How the treatment process works
Patients attend scheduled appointments at RejuvaMed Skin & Body near King City, OR to receive their RF microneedling treatments within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. One of our specialists will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin to numb the treatment area(s). The microneedling applicator is gently rolled across the skin to puncture the skin into the deep layers, leaving the superficial layers undamaged. Simultaneously, RF energy heats and tightens each treatment area. Once your treatment session is finished, you may return home and resume normal daily activities.
Is there any recovery time after RF microneedling?
Since RF microneedling is minimally invasive, there is no required downtime after treatment. Patients may experience temporary redness, tenderness, or swelling after treatment which typically resolves within a couple of days. Scabbing from the micro-injuries is a normal side effect, which becomes pronounced within 24 – 72 hours after treatment. As the skin heals, scabs and damaged skin will naturally peel or flake off to reveal smoother, radiant skin.
How many RF microneedling treatments will I need?
The number of RF microneedling treatments needed depends on the patient’s current skin condition and personal cosmetic goals, and our team’s professional recommendations. Generally, we recommend that patients participate in 3 – 4 RF microneedling treatment sessions spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
