Micro needling uses the body's natural healing processes to produce more flawless, younger looking skin. Now you can boost the benefits of micro needling by combining it with radio frequency skin rejuvenation for remarkably more profound results. Micro needling, also called collagen induction therapy, works by creating tiny perforations through the surface of the skin.
The body begins repairing these micro injuries by producing collagen. The new collagen helps reduce pore size, diminish fine lines and scars, improve skin texture, and improve skin firmness. Micro needling is most often used to:-
Micro needling combined with fractional radio frequency (RF) produces a superior result in both skin quality and skin texture.
Radio frequency is used to stimulate the skin to restructure and regenerate collagen. When radio frequency energy is emitted under the skin, it stimulates deep collagen regeneration that adds volume. Combining micro needling skin resurfacing with radio frequency skin volumizing gives remarkable results.
A topical anesthetic cream is applied.The micro needling with RF treatment itself is relatively painless. You will likely feel pressure from the treatment head, and may feel an occasional zing from the radio frequency. Depending on the area(s) being treated, the micro needling with RF treatment typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes.
You can expect tiny pin point scabs to appear 24-72 hours post-treatment that will naturally shed when the underlying micro injury has healed.
For the first few days after your micro needling with RF treatment, you do need to avoid overheating the skin. During the first 48 hours following treatment, you should avoid saunas, hot showers and baths, heavy workouts, direct sun exposure, and swimming (due to chlorine). You also need to refrain from shaving or using makeup (except healing Lycogel) for 48 hours post-treatment.
Results become visible as the skin heals over the 3 to 4 weeks following a micro needling with RF treatment.
