Does Microneedling With RF Really Work?

If you want to tighten and lift your skin, RF microneedling is an excellent cosmetic option. It helps stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin, which, in turn, makes you look younger. However, it is essential to remember that hormone levels can affect the skin's response to this treatment, especially after menopause. If you are in peri or menopause, microneedling RF is the most effective treatment for collagen stimulation. Microneedling RF is a safe and efficient way to rejuvenate your skin and enhance natural beauty. RF microneedling works on young and older skin for all skin types. It is not too late for Microneedling RF after 70y.o.

 Microneedling RF is a solution for many age-related concerns, like

  • wrinkles
  • fine lines
  • acne pimple scars
  • big pores
  • sagging skin

What Does the RF Microneedling Do?

RF microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling in a single system. It creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin and delivers RF energy precisely and deeply into the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen and wound healing. RF microneedling is primarily used for skin rejuvenation, tightening, lifting, and scar treatment, making the skin look younger and better. Microneedling RF effectively reduces wrinkles, large pores, saggy skin, and acne scars, among other skin issues.

What Are the Risks of RF Microneedling?

Microneedling can cause skin damage, leading to redness, tightness, itching, and mild peeling, which can resolve independently in a few hours or days. However, unlike lasers, RF microneedling is not affected by absorption coefficients of melanin, making it a safer and more practical option for all skin types, including dark skin. RF microneedling Scarlet and Sylfirm X has no restrictions on skin types and tones.

What is RF Microneedling Best for?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance of the skin by using heat energy and tiny needles. The treatment targets various skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, cellulite, and hair loss. The procedure involves using a device emitting radiofrequency energy and creating tiny skin punctures. These punctures stimulate the skin's natural healing process and promote the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin.

The heat energy from the radiofrequency waves also provides a tightening effect on the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and sagging skin. Additionally, radiofrequency microneedling can improve blood flow and circulation to the scalp, promoting hair growth and reducing hair loss. Radiofrequency microneedling is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin and address various skin concerns. Consult a licensed professional to determine if this treatment is proper for you.

Who Is a Good Candidate for RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is an effective treatment for anyone who wishes to reverse aging and improve their skin's appearance. Skin rejuvenation options, including laser treatments, IPL, and lymphatic drainage facials, are more varied for younger individuals. However, as menopause approaches, their skin requires more advanced technology to address aging concerns such as wrinkles, sagging skin, enlarged pores, and scars. RF microneedling is the latest generation of radiofrequency skin tightening that caters to all age groups.

Who Is Not a Candidate for RF Microneedling?

Microneedling is safe for almost anyone except if you have a peacemaker. If you have inflamed acne pimples, skin infections, or allergy signs on your face, you must consult a medical esthetician first to build your treatment program.

Does RF Microneedling Work on Older Skin?

Our skin requires specialized care to maintain its youthful appearance as we age. RF microneedling is a promising treatment option for mature skin. The Scarlet RF microneedling device is designed to deliver radiofrequency heat deep into the skin, triggering collagen production and rejuvenating the skin's texture and tone. This treatment method is safe and effective for aging skin, helping to address common concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

 From the Expert: Using specific collagen and peptide Home Care products is strongly recommended to achieve optimal results from radiofrequency microneedling, a collagen stimulation treatment.

Is 70 too old for microneedling?

Yes, RF microneedling does work on older skin. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind. The response to the treatment will be slower, so it may take longer to see results. It is recommended to use collagen and peptides in home care products to help improve the skin's response to the treatment. For best results, it's recommended to have four treatments once per month, followed by maintenance RF microneedling every three months. It will help you to reverse aging and look younger by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastin while replacing the damaged old collagen.

Frequently Asked Questions


1.Is RF Microneedling Better than Microneedling?

Both of these treatments are designed to encourage collagen production by utilizing a process of controlled trauma and subsequent healing. While microneedling alone prompts collagen production through trauma, RF microneedling goes one step further by incorporating heat damage, recovery, and collagen rebuilding. It's important to note that microneedling should be done with care to avoid causing excessive pain, skin bleeding, post-traumatic infections, and hyperpigmentation. Therefore, microneedling is a superficial treatment that doesn't directly stimulate collagen production. For more dramatic results, deeper and more intense penetration is needed. Microneedling targets the superficial layer of the skin, while Microneedling RF targets the deeper collagen layers, where collagen is deposited and new collagen is stimulated to grow. This double stimulation is achieved by combining microneedling-related trauma with the application of radiofrequency heat. If you have younger skin, microneedling may be a more suitable option, while Microneedling RF is better suited for mature skin.

2.How Long Does RF Microneedling Take to Heal?

Recovery time for RF microneedling is minimal, as no downtime is required. However, you may experience redness and sensitivity for up to three days. We recommend using medical-grade skincare products and micellar water during this time and protecting your skin with sunscreen.

3.What Will My Face Look Like After RF Microneedling?

You may experience some common things: skin redness, mild swelling, and dryness. Skin redness – Immediately after your procedure, you may notice some redness in the treated area, which usually resolves within 24 hours.
