What Is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling is a skin treatment in which very small needles are used to create harmless micro-injuries on the surface of the skin. These micro-traumas stimulate the formation of new collagen protein in the tissues to heal these micro-injuries. In the process of healing, the skin’s appearance is rejuvenated.
When used in combination with radiofrequency energy waves, the service is called RF microneedling. While the microneedling is being performed, the radiofrequency waves are transmitted into the skin tissues through the needles. These waves stimulate collagen production to give the skin a smoother, tighter appearance.
The Benefits of Using RF Energy with Microneedling
Since both radio frequency and microneedling techniques impact the collagen-producing centers of the skin, you may be wondering why it helps to use them in combination with each other as a fractionated radio frequency resurfacing technique.
Put simply, while microneedling works on a surface level, radio frequency waves reach much deeper in the skin layers. Addressing deep layers and surface layers leads to more comprehensive results for a variety of skin issues.
Additionally, pairing these two innovative techniques together leads to an increased amount of collagen and elastin protein production as compared to either technique on its own. This results in more effective rejuvenation.
The Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Service
You will have to report to the med spa about an hour before your fractionated radio frequency resurfacing appointment. We may then apply numbing cream on the required areas in order to avoid any pain during the length of the process. Some degree of discomfort and minor pain might be felt by some patients initially during the service.
At the time of the session, the Morpheus8 laser equipment will be gently pressed against your skin. The needles in the equipment will penetrate your skin; we will be able to control the amount and depth of penetration to achieve the desired results. The radio frequency energy waves will be directed towards the skin tissues at this time.
What to Expect After the Treatment
The treatment may cause minor swelling in the target area, which generally disappears within an hour or two. Tiny scabs may develop in the area after the service. Dermatologists recommend not picking at them, as this can cause irritation. These scabs are nothing to worry about and will fall off on their own.
Improvement in the skin tissues occurs gradually as new collagen and elastin is produced.
Which Issues Can Microneedling Correct?
Microneedling can address a number of issues, including enalrged pores, dullness, age lines, acne scars, chickenpox scarring, roughness, and loose skin. Additionally, microneedling can create a more youthful and glowing complexion.
What Is a Treatment Session Like?
Microneedling only takes about an hour to perform. Once the skin is cleansed, a topical numbing cream may be applied. After this takes effect, the microneedling device is held against the skin of the treatment region and the RF energy is applied.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Because a numbing cream is applied to the area beforehand, any pain or discomfort felt during the Morpheus8 treatment is minimal.
Will I Need Recovery Time After Microneedling?
Social downtime of 1-3 days for redness, minor swelling, and crusting of skin will be needed following Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment. The service is only minimally invasive and requires no scalpels or incisions of any sort.
