What is it?
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling is an advanced, collagen-inducing Aesthetic treatment that improves skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and sagging skin. It also aids in the appearance of acne scarring, stretch marks and surgical and traumatic scars.
We use a sterile, single-use device with adjustable fine surgical steel microneedles to create hundreds of tiny punctures in the skin. As these microneedles penetrate the upper (epidermis) and lower (dermis) layers of the skin at targeted and specific depths, they cause controlled microscopic wounds and pinpoint bleeding.
The process encourages the body’s own wound healing response, which results in an increase in activity of fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells) and improved skin texture. It also creates fine channels, which allow for greater delivery of nutrients deep into the skin. Our radiofrequency skin rejuvenation treatments are a popular choice for clients who are concerned about ageing.
Conditions we treat include:
- Skin texture (fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and pore size)
- Skin laxity
- Stretch marks
- Axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
This treatment is suitable for all skin types with low risk of side effects and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. An hour prior to the treatment, we’ll apply anaesthetic cream. Most people experience mild/moderate discomfort and heat during the treatment. You may experience up to 72 hours of mild swelling and 24 hours of redness. Some people’s skin forms micro-crusts, but these usually disappear within days.
Skin rejuvenating results are visible immediately. Lifting and tightening effects can be seen within 3-6 months. For best results series of treatments may be required (3-5 treatments every 4-6 weeks).
