As we age, our skin naturally loses elasticity and volume. With less collagen and elastin, the skin becomes thinner and looser. This results in unsightly sagging and wrinkles through the cheeks, jawline, and neck.
While facelift or neck lift surgery can improve this concern, patients can also choose microneedling as a proven non-surgical alternative that can not only lift the skin but also improve skin quality.
Using microneedling with radio frequency technology, we can improve the appearance and texture of your skin in the most natural way – without the use of surgery, neurotoxins, or fillers.
The procedure works by using a combination of microneedling and radio frequency (RF) energy. Tiny perforations are made in the skin to deliver heat energy to a specific depth. As the body responds to repair the skin, collagen and elastin production are triggered.
Over time, the facial and/or neck skin becomes tighter and more youthful. Not only does this decrease lines and wrinkles, but facial features (such as the chin, jawline, and cheeks) can regain definition and contour.
One of the reasons RF Microneedling is so effective for acne treatment is its ability to target the underlying support structures in your skin. Once your mid-level dermis heals and the support holes build up once more, the effects on the outer layer of your skin become more obvious.
Our clinic uses RF microneedling to address signs of aging and improve cosmetic imperfections in the skin, including the following:
The procedure involves minimal discomfort, and any swelling, redness or bruising typically resolves in less than a week. Microneedling is generally safe for any skin type.
RF microneedling does not require general anesthesia. Numbing is typically done with a topical cream and applied to the areas receiving treatment. This means you don’t have to worry about the effects inhibiting your drive home or to work if you get the treatment done in the middle of the day.
Results are often noticeable within two weeks, but optimal results are revealed between six and nine months. This gives time for your skin to rebuild damaged cells. Talk to your doctor about how many RF Microneedling treatments you need to schedule to see the results you’re looking for
