Microneedling with Radio Frequency
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling enhanced with radio frequency is also called skin-needling, or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive and non-surgical procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a microneedling device to create controlled skin injury.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a micro-wound. This causes the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the skin. In addition, new capillaries are formed. Microneedling is effective for:
- Reducing scars caused by acne, surgery or burns
- Fading stretch marks
- Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Pigmentary changes (e.g. in melasma)
- Tightening sagging skin
