Microneedling is a popular skin tightening procedure that can safely and effectively treat: • Pores • Acne Scars Pigmentation • Stretchmarks • Wrinkles
How Standard Microneedling Works
When it comes to traditional microneedling, clinics like LA Skin Spa use a special device that creates micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates the body’s own healing response. Collagen and elastin production are initiated and this effectively tightens skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and acne scarring.
How RF Microneedling Works
RF microneedling is different in that it adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF energy is delivered by small needles. The benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the microneedles, RF microneedling surgeon also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction. The RF energy heats the underlying layers beneath the skin, causing constriction and tightening. By doing this, it stimulates collagen and elastin production begins. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster, more dramatic results.
RF microneedling surgeon is appropriate for almost any skin type and skin tone. The procedure is best suited for the following issues:
- Irregular skin texture and tone
- Fine lines and facial wrinkles
- Scarring from acne and chickenpox
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
Most patients will achieve full results with 2-3 treatment sessions. Treatment sessions are determined by consulting with our staff at LA Skin Spa. The treatments are generally spaced about four weeks apart. The number of treatments will depend on how well the patient responds to the treatment and the severity of the skin issues that are being addressed.
