At Cilento Facial Plastics, our services include not only plastic and cosmetic surgery, but nonsurgical options as well. If you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or enhance the look and feel of your skin, microneedling combined with radio frequency energy is for you.
How radio frequency microneedling works
Radio frequency (RF) microneedling is a popular noninvasive treatment in the United States. It is a type of collagen induction therapy for those who want to promote a more youthful look. By creating controlled injuries in the top skin layers, radio frequency microneedling pulls collagen and elastin into specific areas of the skin to improve elasticity and firmness. Radiofrequency combined with microneedling is far more effective than just microneedling alone.
Collagen and elastin are essential to maintaining a youthful and smooth skin appearance. Radiofrequency micro needling encourages efficient collage production. Collagen assists with healing scrapes or cuts to create more resilient and healthy tissue. Elastin is found in artery walls because it makes tissue more flexible and capable of optimal performance. Elastin makes the skin soft and supple while collagen makes it firm. It is the perfect combination of healthy and radiant skin. RF energy increases collagen production while creating an overall tightening effect on the skin.
Where Radio frequency Microneedling is used
RF microneedling treatment areas include the forehead, around the eyes, neck, chest, and stomach. Facial rejuvenation is a common goal of many patients. The treatment can be done on the neck and chest to help diminish wrinkling and pigmentation. The stomach and other areas are targeted to help reduce sagging skin and stretch marks.
What to expect from a radio frequency micro-needling treatment
RF micro needling is not painful. Skin redness is a common and natural side effect of the treatment and is no reason for worry. At Cilento Facial Plastics, we make your treatment as comfortable as possible by using a topical numbing ointment. Using this topical treatment, many patients do not feel the RF microneedling procedure at all.
