The Benefits of Using RF Energy with Microneedling
Since both techniques impact the collagen-producing centers of the skin, you may be wondering why it helps to use them in combination with each other.
Put simply, while microneedling works on a surface level, radiofrequency 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 techniques 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.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
With age, the natural production of collagen within our bodies will begin to degrade. Over the course of time, this causes our skin to lose elasticity, making wrinkles and fine lines appear more prominently. In addition, exposure to the sun and pollutants in the environment can severely degrade the look and feel of the skin.
SkinPen microneedling is a process that can help stimulate the body’s production of collagen to reverse the effects of aging on the skin. Some initial results can be seen immediately after the treatment with optimal results appearing with a series of treatments.
What to Expect After the Treatment
The treatment may cause minor swelling on the target area, which generally disappears within an hour or two. Tiny scabs may develop in the target area after the service. Dermatologists recommend not to irritate them by picking with your hands. These 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. The results look quite natural.
