If you're looking for a treatment that can tighten skin on the face and body while also stimulating collagen production, then radiofrequency (RF) microneedling may be the perfect treatment for you. This innovative procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of your skin, while microneedles help to deliver the RF more deeply than traditional topical RF tightening treatments. This combination of technologies in a single treatment leads to tighter, firmer skin with a youthful appearance. Read on to learn more about RF microneedling and how we use it at New Jersey Plastic Surgery to help you achieve beautiful, healthy skin.
Our Potenza RF microneedling treatment by Cynosure is an ideal treatment for those who are looking to improve the appearance of their skin. This minimally-invasive treatment can help to improve a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, uneven skin texture, and more. RF microneedling can also be used to treat areas of the body that are often difficult to tighten with topical treatments, such as the neck and décolletage.
One of the major benefits of RF microneedling is that it triggers your skin's collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep your skin firm and elastic. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. By stimulating collagen production with RF microneedling, we can help you achieve firmer, smoother skin with a more youthful appearance.
Skin concerns addressed by RF microneedling include:
RF microneedling can be used virtually anywhere. Treatments may be applied to the face, neck, and body, and your treatment plan will be customized to meet your needs. Treatment areas include the face, neck, and chest, as well as the arms, abdomen, and more.
Some of the more popular applications include:
When you come in for your consultation, we will take a look at the areas of your skin that you would like to target with RF microneedling. We will also discuss your medical history and any medications you are currently taking. This is important information to help us determine if RF microneedling is the right treatment for you.
If you are a good candidate for RF microneedling, we will create a treatment plan catered specifically for you. This plan can increase the number of sessions you will need, as well as the specific areas of your skin that we will focus on. We will also provide you with an estimate of the results you can expect to see from this treatment.
During your RF microneedling session, we will apply a topical numbing cream to help keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. Then, we will use the microneedles to deliver the RF energy to your skin. The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes, and you can resume your normal activities immediately afterward.
Following your treatment, you can expect your skin to be red. Most people compare the sensation to a mild sunburn. Your skin may peel and flake away as your body generates fresh skin cells to replace damaged skin. This will last for a few days and then subside.
You must wear sunscreen and avoid direct sunlight while healing from your treatment. This is because your fresh skin cells will be more prone to sun damage. This is essential to see the best results and avoid further skin damage. We will also provide you with other instructions to care for your skin and improve your results with a customized at-home skincare routine.
Results from RF microneedling can be seen gradually over time, as new collagen is produced. Most patients see a significant improvement in their skin's appearance after 3-5 sessions.
RF microneedling can also be combined with other treatments to enhance results even further. For example, New Jersey Plastic Surgery founder and Medical Director Dr. Barry DiBernardo recently performed a MyEllevate neck lift with beautiful results. By adding RF microneedling to the neck area, he was able to further tighten and tone his patient's skin. You can watch that video on our Instagram here.
There's no one-size-fits-all treatment. If you think RF microneedling is right for you, we recommend you visit us for a consultation. We will examine your skin, discuss your concerns and goals, and propose a treatment plan that will address your needs and help you see the results that match your expectations. We may recommend RF microneedling alone or in combination with other treatments like lasers, or we may find that a different treatment protocol would work best for you.
At New Jersey Plastic Surgery, our goal is to help you reach your desired outcome with the right combination of procedures.
There are a few different RF microneedling devices out there, but we hand-selected Potenza from Cynosure, and for good reason.
Potenza takes RF microneedling to the next level.
The system is versatile and can be customized to meet your needs and maximize results with greater precision, regardless of skin type or location on the body.
