What is Microneedling with Radio Frequency? How does it work? What are the benefits?
Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a non-invasive treatment that helps rejuvenate, clear and smooth out the skin. A machine with small, fine needles create tiny punctures on the top layer of the skin with a stamping motion. This helps stimulate the collage and sends signals to your skin to repair it self. This results in improved texture and elasticity.
Radio Frequency is the energy being delivered into the skin while the microneedling is happening. This allows the skin heal itself much faster and delivers quicker results.
Topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment to make treatment comfortable.
