Collagen is key to youthful, smooth skin, but as you age, your body produces less of this protein, which begins to negatively impact your skin. At San Antonio Prime Wellness in San Antonio, TX, we can help reverse the aging process with RF microneedling. This anti-aging treatment delivers skin tightening and skin smoothing results. Microneedling with radiofrequency energy provides a way to maintain a youthful glow long-term and effectively fight the aging process.
RF microneedling is another term for microneedling with radiofrequency energy. This treatment doubles the collagen stimulation results of microneedling as a standalone treatment by adding radiofrequency energy to the mix.
Skin needling is the primary technique that takes place during a microneedling treatment. It creates tiny injuries on the skin’s surface that the body heals by increasing collagen and elastin production. When you add radiofrequency energy to the treatment process, you get twice the collagen-building benefits because, like skin needling, radiofrequency energy also stimulates collagen production in the body and delivers skin tightening and skin smoothing benefits.
Microneedling with radiofrequency energy is an anti-aging treatment that can target multiple skin conditions, including some of the most common signs of aging. The device contains tiny hair-thin sterile needles and emits radiofrequency energy during the treatment. This energy penetrates from the device beyond the skin’s surface into the dermal layers.
Radiofrequency energy heats existing collagen and causes a contraction in existing collagen while stimulating the body to produce more collagen over time. This treatment provides an effective way to combat lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and hollow areas resulting from volume loss. It can also improve the appearance of acne scars, improve skin texture, and promote overall skin health and a glowing complexion.
The body can take up to 12 weeks to make new collagen, so results take time. However, as your body makes new collagen, it will become visible on the skin. You must be patient post-treatment, but know that your results will appear, and you will see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections.
Some patients notice results immediately following the collagen contraction after the device delivers radio frequency energy to the skin. The best results appear within the week following the treatment process as the body responds and creates more collagen in the skin.
Aside from doubling the collagen stimulation benefits of a standalone microneedling treatment, there are many benefits to undergoing microneedling with radio frequency energy. Those looking for a powerful yet natural and effective way to reverse the aging process and treat some specific skin conditions can benefit from this process.
Since the treatment doesn’t require invasive measures or chemicals, most patients qualify for the treatment process. This versatile treatment is guaranteed to boost collagen production in the body and, in doing so, restore that useful healthy glow to the skin. We can use it to treat the face or different areas of the body to target skin concerns, and it only takes a few treatments to achieve optimal results.
This treatment process is simple and efficient. The first step after your consultation, which will determine whether this treatment is right for you, is to schedule your appointment. You don’t have to follow a lengthy list of pre-treatment instructions, but you should avoid anti-inflammatory medication pre-treatment and alcohol consumption. We will provide instructions on preparing your skin for the treatment process so you can achieve the best results.
The microneedling device contains tiny needles that we will stamp into your skin in a repetitive motion. We will adjust the needle depths as needed based on your skin concerns. More sensitive areas of the face require shorter needles than less sensitive areas. Your skin care expert will adjust the needle depths as necessary during the treatment to effectively target your skin concerns without causing irritation, scarring, or any skin damage.
As we stamp the microneedles into your skin, the device will simultaneously emit radiofrequency energy into your skin to heat the dermal layers and stimulate collagen production while tightening existing collagen.
Before treatment, we will apply a topical numbing solution so that you don’t feel the needles penetrate your skin. Radiofrequency energy does not cause any pain but simply a warming sensation in the skin. We have ultimate control of the device and can use different settings to ensure a comfortable temperature throughout the process.
Both men and women with skin concerns make good candidates for microneedling with radiofrequency energy. Almost everyone is a treatment candidate, except those with active acne or a skin infection in the planned treatment area. It’s important that you contact our office if you develop active acne or an infection in your desired treatment area so we can reschedule your appointment to a time when that skin condition has healed.
Pregnant and nursing women must receive clearance from their primary care physician before undergoing treatment to ensure safety. Patients who want to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, add volume to their skin, create a more skin even skin tone, improve skin texture, and experience the skin smoothing and skin tightening benefits of this treatment make good candidates.
Younger patients who want to target fine lines and use this treatment as a preventative measure against aging can schedule treatments as needed. Older patients who want to try to turn back the clock on the aging process and reverse how it has affected the skin on the face and body can also schedule this treatment to improve their skin.
Radiofrequency energy and microneedling are powerful collagen induction therapies that, when combined, can deliver some incredible anti-aging results. Our office values each patient and aims to provide a unique treatment experience to meet all your cosmetic and aging-related needs. We offer one-hour free parking and curbside services to make your life a little easier while simultaneously making your skin look better.
