Everyone will see some preliminary sign that youth has finally drawn to a close and age will begin to creep in around the edges now and then. There are of course a few different cosmetic treatments we can use to restore and rejuvenate the face, décolletage and many other areas of the body where the skin has withered, wrinkled and formed stretch marks from childbirth or weight gain. We at Main Street Cosmetic recommend radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to all of our patients looking to resurface their skin.
Microneedling is a skin care treatment using small microneedles that are applied to the skin to create microchannels where surface damage appears. Microneedling has become the new industry standard to help create fractional surface damage to the skin in specific areas that require regeneration of new skin cells so that healthy ones can then take their place. However, there have been many modifications in these last few years that make microneedling an even better option for all patients.
When microneedling was first released, a hand-rolling method was used. This method was completely manual and required delicately skilled hands to manoeuvre; the cosmetic therapist required in-depth knowledge of the depth to which these needles in this manual microneedling tool, needed to go in particular areas of the skin so as not to damage the surface but to allow proper healing.
The Addition of RF Microneedles
Since then, most cosmetologists and skin therapists use automatic hand-held tools that are set to treat these areas of the skin such as the forehead, cheeks and nose for proper application. These machines offer patients added comfort since they are pressure sensitive to depth and provide quick treatments. Now, in addition to pressure sensitive, automatic microneedling devices, we have microneedling with radiofrequency tipped needles.
These RF tipped microneedling devices not only work to create small microchannels within the skin to allow growth factors and new collagen growth to repair and replenish new cells, but radiofrequency cauterises the newly made channels, so no bleeding or scabbing occurs in the process. As the radiofrequency heat energy penetrates the skin, it helps to tighten the skin as well to reinforce young, taught skin. This RF method is a much more comfortable and effective microneedling treatment for patients all over the world, especially at Main Street Cosmetic.
Main Benefits of Microneedling with RF
For patients looking to overcome skin pigmentation from overexposure to sun, weather, and stress, microneedling will help to break up those colour inconsistencies and allow the skin to repair itself and reduce those differences in tone. Once these microchannels heal, the skin will appear tighter, smoother and more refined. We recommend this treatment to anyone looking to reduce the size of enlarged pores as well as reduce any signs of acne scarring or other preliminary signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. This RF microneedling treatment is even used on the neck where ageing starts for most patients.
