What is RF Microneedling?
RF is the latest in microneedling techniques available at Carolina Age Management Institute. It uses a combination of radio frequency energy and gold plated microneedles to penetrate deep into the skin with each individual needle. The process stimulates the growth of collagen, elastin, and new cells in the skin without the use of harsh chemicals, injectable fillers, or surgery. The process works by kick-starting the body’s natural healing processes, effectively improving the overall quality of your skin.
What are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?
Unlike similar microneedling systems, the RF incorporates more advanced technology to minimize unnecessary discomfort and pain while maximizing the effectiveness of the results. Microneedling can be used to treat a number of skin blemishes and issues, such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose, sagging skin
- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- Rough, uneven skin
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
RF Microneedling utilizes radio frequencies to gently heat the target area underneath the skin. When combined with microneedling, the result is dramatically improved skin conditions. The device uses a robotically driven handpiece with gold guarded needles to get the most precise delivery to ensure an exceptional skin enhancement treatment. Like traditional microneedling treatments, the minor punctures made to the skin will trigger the body’s natural healing response, which involves flooding the affected area with new skin cells, collagen, and elastin to repair and tighten the damaged skin. As a result, you are left with smoother, tauter, and more youthful looking skin. The entire treatment takes around 30 – 60 minutes and patients have little to no downtime following the procedure.
There is no special requirements or preparations necessary before undergoing a RF Microneedling procedure. However, Dr. Giordano asks patients to avoid direct sun exposure in the days before coming in. Medications and supplements that thin the blood should also be ceased until after the procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Giordano will discuss all your medical history as well as your unique needs and expectations. Any special recommendations will be carefully explained to you before treatment.
With RF, the recovery following treatment is very minimal. Immediately after the procedure, the skin will be red, sensitive, and slightly inflamed – similar to a sunburn. This will go away in 24 – 48 hours, after which results will begin to reveal themselves. After a week or two, the results will be fully visible and will continue to improve as the healing process continues.
How Much Does RF Microneedling Cost?
The cost of RF treatments will depend on each patient’s unique needs and requirements. The extent of treatment desired, the area being treated, and other factors will contribute to the final cost. At Carolina Age Management Institute, we accept a number of convenient payment options, including cash, checks, and most major credit cards. We also offer financing options through CareCredit®.
