Why is Microneedling Radiofrequency (RF) Treatment done?

RF microneedling helps to improve skin tone and texture by improving wrinkles, texture irregularities, and other signs of aging. It can also help reduce the appearance of scarring caused due to acne or trauma. Additionally, this advanced aesthetic treatment can also enhance the collagen levels of the skin, as well as improve its rejuvenation and hydration. Besides, it can also promote smoother, firmer, even toned, brighter, and healthier-looking skin when done regularly and correctly.

It is a great alternative to cosmetic surgery for correct and long-lasting results but without the need for surgery, anesthesia, and lengthy recovery times associated with cosmetic surgical procedures.

What Skin Concerns Can Microneedling RF Address?

RF microneedling is a safe and effective option to treat various skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines, ageing skin, sagging skin, acne scars, and irregular pigmentation. It is also helpful in decreasing the size of enlarged pores and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers.

How Does Microneedling RF Work to Improve Skin?

The Microneedling RF treatment works by delivering radiofrequency energy to target areas. Due to the effects of heat generated from the electric frequency, the skin begins to repair itself naturally. This increases the production of collagen and elastin, which ultimately helps restore the skin’s youthfulness.

The Needle applicator used for this treatment first creates tiny punctures in the skin, which triggers an attempt by the body to heal. This stimulates collagen production, while the heat emitted from the radiofrequency energy helps reduce wrinkles and blemishes.

What Makes Microneedling RF Different from Traditional Microneedling?

Traditional microneedling procedure usually utilizes a handheld device that contains microscopic needles and are inserted into the skin to create tiny punctures. The skin then initiates its own natural healing process, which helps improve the tone and texture of such skin.

The microneedling radiofrequency (RF) treatment, however, is significantly different from traditional microneedling. This innovative technique uses radiofrequency current to further improve collagen production apart from the healing benefits of traditional microneedling. This makes it a safer and far more effective method to achieve greater skin regeneration and rejuvenation results.

Is Microneedling RF a Safe and Effective Skin Rejuvenation Method?

Yes, microneedling RF is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation method with minimal and short-lived side effects. It is a relatively pain-free procedure that uses controlled radiofrequency energy to help regenerate the collagen in the skin.

However, like all other treatments, this procedure also has some risks. The qualified plastic surgeons at Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics clinic in Kanhangad discuss all the possible risks and side effects with the patients before starting the treatment.

The side effects may include some redness, swelling, itching, and sunburn-like sensation on the treated area. To minimize the risks, proper post-treatment care is essential. Dr. Faizan Kalekhan and the team at Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics clinic are highly experienced in providing the best after-care advice to the patients to ensure safe and effective results.
