Who is a good candidate for Radio Frequency Microneedling?
This treatment is safe for all patients. Those who are looking for a minimally invasive method of addressing the issues listed above are encouraged to book a consult.
What is the difference between Regular Microneedling and Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Traditional microneedling uses a device to create micro-injuries to the skin which stimulates your body’s natural healing process. This process initiates collagen and elastin production which help tighten skin, reduce fine lines, and reduces acne scarring. Radio Frequency Microneedling adds radio frequency into the mix. Radio frequency is delivered through the small needles. This enhances skin tightening and scar reduction. The radiofrequency energy is delivered to the underlying layers causing constriction and tightening of the skin, while also stimulating collagen and elastin production. With the deep delivery of radio frequency energy, results are produced faster and are more dramatic.
How long does a Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment last?
Prior to the treatment, medical grade topical numbing is applied for 40-60 minutes. The treatment itself will take roughly 45 minutes to an hour depending on the area(s) being treated. Overall, expect to spend an hour and a half to 2 hours getting this treatment.
How soon will I see results from Radio Frequency Microneedling?
Some people may see results immediately post treatment, but it depend on the speed at which your body responds. Generally, improvements can be seen at 6-8 weeks. We recommend having 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
Can I wear makeup after having a Radio Frequency Microneedling treatment?
Makeup typically contains chemicals and infection-causing agents. For that reason, we advise against wearing makeup for the next 2 to 3 days.
Is Radio Frequency Microneedling painful?
We use a medical grade topical numbing agent. Many clients report a slightly uncomfortable, yet tolerable experience. As your skin becomes more tolerable of the treatment, we can increase the needle depth delivering even better results.
Can I get Radio Frequency Microneedling while pregnant or nursing?
This treatment has not been tested on people who are pregnant or nursing. We will not perform this procedure in those circumstances.
Should I take precautions the day of my Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment?
We reccomend avoiding alcohol, blood thinners, and anticoagulants.
Is Radio Frequency Microneedling safe for all skin tones and types?
Yes! Radio Frequency Microneedling is safe for all skin tones and types.
How does Radio Frequency Microneedling treat excessive underarm sweat?
The thermal tissue reaction caused by Radio Frequency Microneedling destroys the sweat glands. This is a no-recovery treatment involving local anesthesia being injected into the armpit area, followed by the 20 minute procedure that puts an end to sweat glands.
