MicroNeedling is a popular skin rejuvenation technique in which tiny needles are used to puncture the skin creating superficial wounds that allow for increased production in collagen as a response. It is a great tool that allows the provider to address common skin concerns. The procedure is quick and immensely effective with minimal downtime. If used correctly, over time patients can see an increase in collagen and elastin production by over 400%, according to this study. Now, MicroNeedling has been taken to the next level with the use of RF, radio frequency, technology. Fountain of You, Melbourne, FL’s premier anti-aging and aesthetic office, is proud to offer Vivace MicroNeedling in Viera, FL. For those of you who are interested in the procedure, let’s take a closer look at what RF MicroNeedling is all about.
Physicians have utilized MicroNeedling technology for years, often referred to as “collagen induction therapy”, and it is a mainstay in the rejuvenation business because it is such an effective treatment. By creating a controlled injury to the skin using needles, the body creates additional elastin and collagen as a means to heal itself. This results in younger, firmer looking skin. As we age, our skin loses its fullness. Fine lines and wrinkles appear and damage from the sun makes its visible mark on our skin. Many of us have suffered from acne in the past and have residual scaring to show for it. MicroNeedling causes the body to harness its own healing powers and healthier more revitalized skin is what is left behind.
Technological advancements in the aesthetic realm have now allowed for the use of radio frequency as a means to incite additional benefits from MicroNeedling. So, how does it work? First and foremost, RF technology has been used in the medical industry for over 75 years. Electrical current is delivered to tissue allowing for the treatment of a variety of conditions. Now, in the arena of skin care, RF is considered a safe and effective complement to traditional MicroNeedling. The microneedles that puncture the skin also deliver RF energy allowing for deep penetration in the skin. The heat energy of the RF has immediate effects creating a tightening of the skin and an additional boost to collagen and elastin production. With RF MicroNeedling you get the benefits of mechanical injury caused by the needles themselves and the healing properties resulting from the light energy. It is the best of both worlds and with minimal downtime, this is a procedure that anyone can benefit from.
