It is a form of microneedling treatment that also uses radiofrequency. Microneedling on its own is known to be a highly effective treatment for jumpstarting collagen in the skin. Adding radiofrequency technology only increases the efficacy of the treatment.
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin, to create tiny “micro-injuries” that then heal. This healing process involves the production of collagen and elastin, which are the two components that make the skin look youthful.
In other words, microneedling jumpstarts collagen and elastin production by triggering the skin’s natural healing process through artificial “injuries” that do not actually harm the surface of the skin.
This process helps lift the skin, helping to smooth and tighten the tissue, which tends to become loose overtime as our skin ages.
Now that we understand microneedling, how does radio-frequency enhance the results of this treatment?
Radio-frequency is delivered through the micro needling needles, heating the deeper layers of the skin that cannot be reached with traditional microneedling.
