RF Microneedling is a single treatment that combines two minimally invasive procedures known as radiofrequency (RF) energy and microneedling.
How does it work?
Radiofrequency energy uses heat to constrict and tighten the skin, whilst also stimulating collagen and elastin production. The radiofrequency energy heats and tightens the tissue to give a lift and firm contours. The RF energy heat targets the underlying deeper layers of skin, so it does not trigger hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones.
Microneedling, also called Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulates collagen by creating microwounds in the skin. The fine microneedles make tiny pinpricks in the skin, and this triggers the skin’s natural response to produce collagen and elastin.
The combination of both these procedures in an RF Microneedling device gives the appearance of smooth, sculpted, and rejuvenated skin, after 1-3 sessions.
What does RF Microneedling treat and what are the benefits?
- Common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles
- Stimulates the growth of healthy new skin
- Can be used for all skin types
- Promotes collagen production
- Reduces skin irregularities and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Contours, lifts, and tightens loose skin
- Improves hyperpigmentation
- Improves and smooths uneven skin texture
RF Microneedling for acne scars
As one of the most common skin diseases, Acne affects around 650 million of the world’s population. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have witnessed first-hand how acne scarring can affect your confidence levels. This is why we recommend RF Microneedling to improve the appearance of acne scars.
The micro punctures made with the fine needles, help break down old scar tissue and encourage new collagen and elastin. It also improves hyperpigmentation or uneven skin texture which can be caused by acne scarring. Our trained practitioners will assess your acne scars and let you know the likely results for your type of scarring.
