Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that encourages collagen production by triggering the body’s natural healing response to stimulate the growth of healthy new skin. Compared with chemical peels and dermabrasion treatments, radiofrequency microneedling is minimally invasive. Microneedling in Denver at La Fontaine Aesthetics may be your solution to various skin concerns so you can experience a restored youthful appearance.

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Microneedling uses a fine needle to create micro-wounds, or channels, in the facial skin. This triggers the production of capillaries, elastin, and collagen to encourage your own natural healing response. Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses radiofrequency waves in addition to tiny needles. The needle releases radiofrequency into the channels, which enhances the effects of standard microneedling.

Radiofrequency microneedling can target the following skin concerns:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • The appearance of large pores
  • Acne scars
  • Scars from injury or surgery
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Loose, sagging skin
  • Cellulite
  • Hyperhidrosis

What are the benefits of radiofrequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling, or RF microneedling, produces new collagen and elastin, which are the main structural proteins found in your skin. Restoring collagen and elastin is vital to revitalizing your skin. A radiofrequency microneedling treatment is excellent for tightening and firming skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars. At La Fontaine Aesthetics in Denver, you experience all of the benefits without any downtime associated with laser resurfacing or surgical facelifts. Some examples of the many benefits of RF microneedling include:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • New collagen production
  • Improved acne scars
  • Improves skin's elasticity which tightens and smooths the skin
  • Improved appearance of enlarged pores

Who is a good candidate for radiofrequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a safe and effective procedure for a variety of candidates. If your aesthetic goal is smoother and more radiant skin, you may be an ideal candidate for microneedling in Denver if you:

  • Are in good health
  • Have early signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Have facial scarring
  • Have realistic expectations for your treatment results
  • Are you not pregnant, using Accutane, or have a skin infection or disease

What are the different types of microneedling devices?

Part of what makes microneedling a versatile option is how many different types of microneedling devices are available. Some of the most common modalities include:

  • SkinPen

    Using a small handheld device, Dr. Oleszek creates microchannels in your skin in 30 minutes to one hour. A topical anesthetic is applied to your face before your treatment. Because SkinPen does not use RF, it's a light treatment with significantly reduced recovery time.

  • INTRAcel

    INTRAcel RF Microneedling combines radio frequency technology, microneedling, and fractional treatments into one procedure. In addition to tiny needles penetrating deep into the skin, INTRAcel targets and heats the tissue. Because surrounding tissue will not be affected, recovery time is considerably shorter.

  • Scarlet

    Scarlet RF is a short-pulse radiofrequency with microneedling skin treatment that increases the density of your skin to improve firmness. There’s less downtime than other treatments, and Scarlet treatments are less painful than other devices.

  • Agnes

    The Agnes uses radiofrequency energy and a specialized needle system to contract skin and unwanted fatty tissue. This system can precisely deposit the energy safely and effectively into the skin or below the skin. Best of all, the Agnes device is used for facial contouring, which in the past has required surgery or more invasive procedures.

  • Morpheus8

    Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive and modular RF fractional solution. The difference between Morpheus8 and other RF devices is that Morpheus8 Body can be used for more extensive and deeper treatments. Additionally, it is safe for multiple skin types with a minimum risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

How long does recovery take for radiofrequency microneedling?

You can return home after the treatment and return to your normal activities. Results are almost immediate, as you’ll notice that your skin is smoother and tighter right after the first treatment. Post-treatment, you’ll see tiny pinpoint bleeding, which will resolve within a few minutes; for about an hour post-treatment, you may feel like you have been sunburned. Any redness will disappear within a few hours, and swelling should resolve within one to two days.

Your recovery will depend on how you care for your skin after your procedure. Some general aftercare tips for producing the best results from your recovery include:

  • Apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort
  • Wear SPF because your skin will be susceptible to the sun for a few weeks post-treatment
  • Use any prescribed antibiotic creams or emollients
  • Use a gentle cleanser
  • Avoid wearing makeup for 24 hours
