Microneedling uses a fine needle to create micro wounds, or channels, in the skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen. It’s also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy.
If the procedure also uses radiofrequency waves, it’s called radiofrequency microneedling. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, causing additional damage. This enhances the effects of standard microneedling. The skin that grows back is thicker and smoother.
*You can also get radiofrequency microneedling with platelet-rich fibrin (PRF).
In this procedure, your provider draws blood from your arm and uses a machine to separate the platelets.After a microneedling session, your provider injects or applies the platelets to the treated area. This may maximize the results of your treatment.
Radiofrequency microneedling is considered safe, but it isn’t appropriate for everyone.
At your initial appointment, your provider will ask questions about your medical history and expectations. They’ll also take photos of the areas you would like treatment for to determine the best technique for your condition, as well as provide instructions on how to prepare for the procedure.
Your actual procedure will take place in your healthcare provider’s office. Generally, here’s what you can expect:
After your treatment you will see some results around the 3-6 weeks. The exact time frame depends on your age, skin condition that is being treated and amount of treatments you have received. In most cases you will require at least three sessions. This also depends on what you’re treating. For example, if you have moderate acne scars, you’ll need about three or four treatments. Bigger scars might need five treatments. These sessions will be done every 4 to 6 weeks. This lets your skin heal between treatments. After the initial set of treatments, the results will last about 1 year. It’s recommended to have a touch-up session once a year to maintain your desired results.
