Benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling
October 7, 2018
If you are looking for a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of your skin, you should check out the benefits of radiofrequency microneedling. You may find that it is your answer to eliminating scarring and getting rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Radiofrequency microneedling is done when a unit that contains a number of very tiny insulated needles is used on the skin. The penetrations are so small that the surface of the skin is left intact. The work is done when the energy from the treatment is emitted into the dermis, or the layer beneath the surface. As a result, the skin is basically stimulated to heal itself from the inside out.
Of all the reasons for which people seek skin treatments, lines and wrinkles are near the top of the list. They develop when the skin starts to become loose over time. This happens because the level of collagen in the lower layers of the skin starts to decline. It does so naturally because the body slows its production of it as the years go by. Since collagen is the substance that keeps the skin full and tight, less of it causes the skin to loosen. When this happens, lines and wrinkles will naturally form due to the slack that is now present in the skin.
There is another substance in the skin that contributes to a young appearance. It is called elastin. This is what gives the skin elasticity, allowing it to return to its former size and shape when it is pulled or stretched. The body produces less of it with age also.
When radiofrequency microneedling is done, the therapy will stimulate the production of additional collagen and elastin. The energy that is emitted into the lower skin layers through the insulated needles will produce heat. It is the heat that starts the collagen and elastin growth process. Over the following months, the levels will continue to increase until they reach levels that are similar to what they were before age caused them to decline. Higher collagen levels have a direct impact on the level of tightness in the skin. As a result, the lines and wrinkles will be reduced and you will enjoy a more youthful appearance.
You might also be interested in radiofrequency microneedling if you have scars from past cases of acne. These scars can sometimes look like pitted places on the skin. The collagen that is produced by the therapy will provide fullness and smooth out those uneven places.
There is little or no downtime associated with the procedure. Individuals can immediately return to their normal routines without having to schedule time off.
