Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to get many of the benefits of cosmetic surgery, but without the surgery? Thanks to technology, there’s a way to do that, and it’s called Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling.
As we age, collagen production slows down and existing collagen breaks down. Approved by the FDA in 2016, Radio Frequency Microneedling can help promote collagen production in the skin being treated. Anyone hoping to reduce wrinkles and have smoother skin should consider (RF) Microneedling.
While traditional microneedling uses tiny needles to create channels in the skin, triggering the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen, RF Microneedling adds radio frequency waves to the microneedling procedure. The radio waves add heat energy, providing greater results.
RF Microneedling is a great solution for anyone who wants a non-surgical, non-invasive option for rejuvenating their appearance. After RF Microneedling, skin appears more radiant and looks younger and healthier. And, unlike many surgical procedures, there’s very minimal downtime or side effects. When you leave Dr. Lo’s office after receiving RF Microneedling, you can resume your normal daily activities soon after.
According to Healthline, RF Microneedling is effective in targeting fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, the appearance of large pores, scars from injury or surgery, loose, sagging skin, and more. Additionally, in an important study by the National Institutes of Health, it was found that radio frequency had a significant effect in reducing scarring from acne.
One innovative type of radio frequency microneedling was developed by Agnes Medical and is known as Agnes RF. Agnes RF uses a device with micro-insulated electrodes of varying lengths and configurations, which allows the doctor to customize treatment based on the patient’s specific individual needs.
Whatever type of RF microneedling you choose, the addition of radio frequency provides benefits beyond traditional microneedling. When radio frequency technology used in conjunction with microneedling, the effects have been shown to:
- Require fewer sessions
- Treat a wider range of cosmetic issues
- Require very minimal downtime
- Easily be customizable for specific cosmetic problems
- Produce greater amounts of collagen
