About RF Microneedling
Joseph P. Housel, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist, utilizes an exceptional technique that produces gorgeous outcomes for our Liverpool, NY area patients using a treatment from Secret RF called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. RF remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry due to their skin tightening effects. This specific sort of therapy utilizes heat to stimulate the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This technique may be used with microneedling or PRP (platelet-rich plasma therapy) to maximize the outcomes. At Housel Dermatology, P.C., we frequently incorporate this new process into our patients' skin care treatments to create healthier skin, a much smoother feel, and a luminous complexion.
If you're 40 years or older and are beginning to find discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems, RF microneedling might be the perfect treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you want to:
- Firm your skin to create a more refreshed look
- Enhance skin feel, pigment, and tone
- Treat skin imperfections, like discoloration and blood vessels
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
- Treat acne scars and other forms of discoloration
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look
Microneedling utilizes an instrument (with small needles at the end) that's rolled carefully over the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. Although this process is usually done on its own, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency microneedling technologies has enabled us to maximize the outcomes for our Liverpool, NY patients.
This process is quite straightforward. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently puncture your skin and return the electrodes on the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels that offer cumulative and continuing results to reduce common signs of aging and give you a glowing complexion.
What to Expect
Your microneedling treatments with Secret RF or PRP will be performed in Housel Dermatology, P.C.'s facility using a numbing solution to minimize any discomfort. During your procedure, the handpiece will roll over the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should anticipate minute pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours post-treatment. These scabs will naturally disappear as the skin heals. Outcomes become noticeable as the skin recovers over a month after having a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally require 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.
