Long-Lasting Facial Rejuvenation with RF Microneedling

Getting older is something we see on the outside, but it's caused at the cellular level of our skin. As we age, our bodies start to produce a fewer amount of proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are essential for the good health, structure, and texture of our skin. This is a major factor in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and other cosmetic issues. At Forman Plastic Surgery, our medical spa offers an innovative treatment called RF microneedling, which can rejuvenate your facial skin from within by boosting your supply of collagen and elastin.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF (radiofrequency) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin. This type of microneedling uses radiofrequency energy as an additional component to revitalization. The RF energy heats the skin, which deeply stimulates collagen and elastin production and improves skin texture. The treatment utilizes a device with tiny needles that puncture the skin, creating micro-injuries that trigger cellular renewal.

At the same time, the devices emit radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of tissue. RF Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin texture, and dull skin. It is also effective at tightening loose skin, reducing the size of pores, and enhancing overall skin quality for a more youthful appearance.

Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

If you’re an adult looking to achieve healthier skin and a more youthful complexion, you may be a good candidate for RF microneedling. Ideal candidates for the procedure should meet the following criteria:

  • Are generally in good physical health
  • Have no history of keloid scarring
  • Are not currently taking blood-thinners
  • Have the desire to rejuvenate their facial skin
  • Have reasonable expectations for the treatment

What is the RF Microneedling Procedure Like?

Before your RF microneedling treatment, you’ll need to have a consultation with Dr. Forman or one of our other qualified providers. They will evaluate your skin type, medical history, and current skin conditions to ensure that you're a good candidate for the treatment. They will then work with you to devise a personalized treatment plan that will allow you to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Before the treatment begins, we will take measures to ensure that you have a comfortable experience. This will include setting you up in a relaxed position and applying a topical numbing cream or gel to your skin in the targeted area. During the procedure, our Lutronic Genius handheld RF microneedling device will be applied to your skin, where its tiny, gold-plated needles will create micro-injuries and deliver radiofrequency energy.

What is the Recovery Like?

After undergoing RF microneedling, you should be able to return to work and your typical routine in approximately 24 hours. However, you should wait at least 48 hours before engaging in strenuous exercise. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience some redness, swelling, and a mild burning sensation, but these symptoms are normal and should subside within a few hours.
