Lakes Area IV Wellness Clinic is excited to announce starting January 2024, we will be scheduling for RF Microneedling.
What is RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling, or Radiofrequency Microneedling, is an advanced cosmetic procedure that combines traditional microneedling with the added benefits of radiofrequency (RF) energy. This minimally invasive treatment aims to enhance skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production for a more youthful appearance.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
During an RF Microneedling session:
Microneedling: Tiny needles create controlled micro-injuries in the skin's surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural healing response, promoting the production of collagen and elastin.
Radiofrequency Energy: Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin through the microneedles. This RF energy further stimulates collagen production, tightens existing collagen fibers, and enhances overall skin rejuvenation.
Benefits of RF Microneedling:
Collagen Stimulation: RF Microneedling promotes collagen and elastin production, leading to improved skin firmness and elasticity.
Fine Lines and Wrinkle Reduction: The treatment targets fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, mouth, and forehead, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
Scar Improvement: RF Microneedling can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of scars by promoting tissue regeneration.
Skin Texture Enhancement: The procedure contributes to improved skin texture, minimizing the appearance of pores and refining the skin's overall surface.
Tightening and Lifting: RF energy assists in skin tightening and lifting, providing a subtle but noticeable improvement in sagging or lax skin.
Common areas that can be treated with RF microneedling include:
Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
Around the eyes (periorbital area)
Around the mouth (perioral area)
Fine lines and wrinkles
Skin texture improvement
Aging skin on the back of the hands
Fine lines and wrinkles
Facial acne scars
Scarring on other areas of the body
Other body areas with stretch marks
Other types of scars
Loose skin on the abdomen
Sagging skin on the arms
Sagging skin on the thighs
Other areas with skin laxity
Treatment Duration and Downtime:
Treatment Time: The duration of an RF Microneedling session can vary but typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the areas being treated and the specific device used.
Downtime: Downtime is generally minimal compared to more invasive procedures. Patients may experience redness, mild swelling, and pinpoint bleeding immediately after the treatment. These effects typically subside within a few days.
Recovery: Most individuals can resume normal activities within a day or two. It's advisable to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen during the healing process.
Results and Follow-up: Noticeable improvements in skin texture and tone may become apparent within a few weeks, with continued enhancement over several months as collagen production increases. Multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results, depending on the individual's goals and the severity of the skin concerns.
