Rejuvenate Your Skin with RF Microneedling

RF microneedling, or radiofrequency microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at teaching your skin to heal itself. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin imperfections are caused in part due to low levels of collagen. As we age, our bodies produce less of it than in our youth. It’s possible to restore lost collagen with fillers and other treatments on the market, but radiofrequency microneedling stimulates your body to produce it!

What Is the Procedure?

When you undergo microneedling, your trained skincare expert will use tiny, fine needles to prick your skin and create small wounds in the top layer of your skin. Radiofrequency microneedling adds in radiofrequency waves. They’re generated by an LED light and produce thermal energy.

Essentially, the combination of tiny needles and radiofrequency waves prompt your body to respond as if it’s healing a wound. It ramps up the production of collagen, which can fill in fine lines and wrinkles, along with healing stubborn skin problems like old acne scars and large pores. Rather than add in something or cover up an issue, microneedling prompts your body to take care of it itself. It’s more like a helping hand (or many ultra-small helping hands) than anything.

What to Expect

Because the procedure creates many small wounds in the skin, expect a bit of discomfort. Usually, things are back to normal within 24 hours but prepare for a short amount of downtime just after your procedure. For the best procedure possible, there are a few things to avoid before microneedling.

  • Retin A
  • Retinol
  • Vitamin A Treatments
  • Other topical medications
  • Blood thinners (one week prior to treatment)

Following your treatment, it’s highly recommended that you do not use any active skincare for at least 24 hours and avoid direct sunlight, swimming, or activity that could cause sweating.

If you continue to experience discomfort after 24 hours or it feels more intense, reach out to your doctor or skincare expert with any questions. In general, people recover from radiofrequency microneedling quickly and without issue.

Is Radiofrequency Microneedling Right for You?

This type of microneedling procedure is safe and effective for nearly everyone. If you’re struggling with scarring, discoloration, or fine lines and wrinkles, set up your consultation with Beauty and Body by Mia to discuss a microneedling session. Help your skin to care for itself again.
