Skin needling is a popular treatment to refresh your skin’s appearance. The newest skin needling technique combines radiofrequency (rf) with microneedling, boosting this treatment to a whole new level. Traditional skin needling uses a microneedling pen or dermaroller to stimulate collagen remodelling. It has been used for nearly two decades to reduce acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin woes.
RF or radiofrequency energy combined with skin needling takes this treatment to the next level. First, the microneedles are inserted into the skin (after substantial numbing). Secondly, radiofrequency energy is delivered into the dermis. The whole process is very controlled, so the rf energy is given to the skin at a level where it can have maximal therapeutic benefit—the result: more dramatic results.
Who Can Have RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling is appropriate for all skin types and can be combined with a CO2 laser. It is used to:
- Reduce fine lines & wrinkles
- Reduce acne and other scars
- Tighten skin
- Smooth and refresh irregular skin texture
However, rf microneedling is not suitable for pigmentation treatment (in fact, it can worsen if misused). Therefore, for pigmentation treatment, you will need IPL such as the Sciton BBL or lasers such as V laser or Picosure laser for skin of colour.
The Benefits of RF Microneedling
Throughout 3-4 treatments, you expect a significant improvement in skin quality.
- You can expect similar benefits to ablative, fractional CO2 laser treatment with less downtime.
- Needling can be used on darker skin types.
- Healing occurs quickly and can be used in combination with other advanced skin treatments.
RF Microneedling with Fraxis Duo
We chose Secret Rf as it came with a Fraxis CO2 laser. The first platform to combine RF microneedling with a fractional CO2 laser.
We still perform skin needling as a superficial skin refining treatment. Yet, for specific skin concerns, such as acne scars, stretch marks, self-harm scars, fine lines and wrinkles, the advantage of rf microneedling stands out. The first step is to come in for a free assessment with our laser therapists.
