RADIO-FREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING

Radio-Frequency Microneedling is a treatment that stimulates the body’s healing processes by using tiny needles to penetrate the upper layers of the skin. Radio-frequency energy is transmitted into the skin via the needles, thereby producing tiny injuries that stimulate the healing process and promote the formation of certain growth factors. This process encourages the production of collagen and elastin, which promote a fresh and youthful appearance.

The transmission of radio-frequency energy via the needles into the collagen layer of the skin helps treat skin impurities, wrinkles and scars.

Information

What skin problems can be improved by Radio-Frequency Microneedling and on which parts of the body can it be applied?

Radio-Frequency Microneedling has a variety of applications. It can remove wrinkles and improve enlarged pores, pigment disorders, scars and stretch marks—with repeated treatment, even remove them. It has the additional benefit of being applicable to any area of the body. Radio-Frequency Microneedling also allows treatment of sensitive areas of the body such as the eyelids, the lower face (mouth area), the neck, and the décolleté, which can be difficult to treat with other methods.

Furthermore, the method is suitable for the treatment of the upper arms and the buttocks.

What is the treatment process?

The treatment proceeds as follows: First, a local anaesthetic in the form of an ointment is applied to the skin to numb pain that can occur through the use of the needles. After applying the anaesthetic, the aesthetician moves the RF apparatus around the skin so that the needles stimulate the body’s healing process. The length of the treatment depends on the size of the treatment area. Finally, a collagen mask is applied. Within a few hours, the microscopic wounds close.

What are the advantages of a Radio-Frequency Microneedling treatment?

Radio-Frequency Microneedling can be effectively combined with other treatments such as fillers, plasma facial treatment, or mesotherapy.

How long is the course of treatment?

Two to three treatments are advisable and are carried out at intervals of at least 3 to 4 weeks. The results can be visible for up to three years, and in the case of scars, the results can be permanent. A concrete result from the treatment cannot be guaranteed. However, repeated treatment at the recommended intervals increases the likelihood of success.

What should be considered after the treatment?

Please avoid sauna, sports and sunlight on the first day after the treatment. During the week following the treatment, please also avoid thermal laser treatments.

Are there any risks and side effects?

Radio-Frequency Microneedling functions through the stimulation of the body’s own healing process, which regenerates the treated skin areas. Negative side effects have not been observed. Risk of infection does exist if the treated areas of the skin are not kept clean. Special attention should be paid to keeping the skin area hygienic immediately after treatment.
