Young skin can handle nearly everything that life throws at it. But as we age, our skin loses some of its healing powers. Once collagen production slows, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin become more common. But with a little encouragement, we can remind our skin of its own healing properties, reducing the appearance of age-related issues. At Paragould Plastic Surgery, we offer RF Microneedling treatments capable of treating fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, psoriasis, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) by targeting numerous areas of the body.
The RF Microneedling process supplements production of the skin’s natural healing elements to rejuvenate your appearance, turning back the clock for firmer, smoother, and more uniform skin. RF Microneedling is a safe, quick, and effective method for stimulating the skin’s own healing abilities so that you get back to looking as young as you feel!
RF microneedling is safe and effective for both lighter and darker skin tones. The treatment is ideal for anyone looking to improve the texture, tightness, and uniformity of skin and those seeking to reduce acne scarring or excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). RF microneedling is also an excellent alternative to other treatments that may not be quite as effective on darker skin.
RF Microneedling works by causing perfectly safe, microscopic injuries to the skin. Through a combination of radiofrequency waves (RF) and micro-wounds from extremely fine needles, RF microneedling increases production of elastin and collagen. Reminding your skin of its own healing properties has numerous advantages, among them:
Benefits of RF Microneedling
RF Microneedling FAQ
RF Microneedling is mostly painless and comfortable. The tiny micro-wounds caused by the treatment generally produce an equally small amount of vague discomfort. In some instances, a topical anesthetic is used for those patients who exhibit difficulty with needles or who experience more significant pain than others.
RF Microneedling causes a thermal tissue reaction, which can slow or stop sweat glands from overproducing. Generally speaking, patients experience less sweating from the targeted areas with only three quick and simple procedures.
As with other scars, acne scars are caused by unhealed skin damage. The Microneedling procedure encourages the skin to heal wounds by increasing the production of elastin and collagen. Acne scars, whiteheads, and blackheads should diminish after the recommended number of treatments. This increased healing ability can persist for several weeks, healing any additional damage quicker and more completely.
