Microneedling with Radiofrequency: An Innovative, Minimally Invasive Skin Treatment
Microneedling is an advanced, nonsurgical treatment option which targets acne scarring and signs of aging. At Skin Care at 5th Ave in Peachtree, GA, we offer microneedling with radiofrequency, combining two advanced treatments to smooth out scars and rejuvenate your skin. Dr. Joseph Galitzin can perform this safe, minimally invasive procedure for virtually all skin types. Also known as RF microneedling, this treatment can target deeper layers of skin than microneedling alone with little to no downtime.
Is RF Microneedling Right for Me?
One of the major benefits of this type of treatment is that it is compatible with nearly any skin type and tone. Dr. Galitzin can use RF microneedling to address:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Irregular skin texture
This procedure can also help with a certain degree of skin sagging. The best way to find out if microneedling can help you is to schedule an appointment at our office. Dr. Galitzin can discuss your concerns with you and determine if this treatment can address them. He may recommend an alternative skin treatment or combining multiple procedures together to achieve the results you desire.
Benefits of Microneedling with Radiofrequency
This advanced treatment option offers a wide range of benefits. RF microneedling procedures:
- Are virtually painless
- Reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging
- Help scars fade
- Have significantly less downtime than other laser treatments
How It Works
Before beginning, we will apply a numbing agent to the areas being treated to ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment. Then, Dr. Galitzin will use the advanced microneedling device to treat your skin.
In general, patients see the best results after two to three treatment sessions.
During the procedure, the microneedling device creates several dozen pricks in your skin. At the same time, it produces radiofrequency energy which reaches deeper levels of your skin to address scars and wrinkles.
The needles and RF energy work together to encourage your skin to produce new collagen and hyaluronic acid. These natural substances help repair damaged tissue and hydrate your skin. A typical session takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete.
The Recovery Process
RF microneedling involves little to no downtime. However, you may experience some mild side effects for the first day or two after treatment, such as:
- Swelling around the treatment area
- Some minor bleeding
- A feeling of warmness, like a sunburn
After the first 24 hours, you can use makeup to mask any temporary redness. Most patients feel comfortable returning to their normal activities within 48 hours of treatment.
Your Final Results
In general, patients see the best results after two to three treatment sessions. We typically recommend waiting about four weeks between each session to allow your skin to fully heal. You may choose to refine the results of your RF microneedling procedure with one of our other skin treatments. Often, combining platelet-rich plasma with microneedling can significantly enhance your results.
