There are many types of skin procedures that aid in addressing skin tightening, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and collagen stimulation, but microneedling remains one of the most effective methods. Microneedling is a procedure that uses fine needles to make tiny holes in the surface of the skin, triggering the natural process of elastin and collagen production. This helps in the skin tightening, re-texturing, lifting, and brightening of your skin.
Often, microneedling can be paired with other methods to enhance the outcomes of the procedure. One example of this is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. This technique uses low radiation radiofrequency waves to heat the dermis and this heating effect causes new collagen production which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the sagging skin. Through RF the skin tightening is achieved without damaging the skin surface. When used together, RF+Microneedling significantly helps improve mild to moderate signs of aging.
RF microneedling is minimally-invasive and can be used to address skin issues such as:
