Pro and Cons of RF microneedling in Toronto MedVSpa

Most people are bothered by such signs of aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatment is a fast and non-invasive way to treat these issues with 3 hours of downtime only. Creams, serums, and other home care products can treat minor problems, they do very little to combat mild to moderate signs of aging. Microneedling, combined with radiofrequency does.

What is microneedling, and how does radiofrequency energy change your complexion?

So, what is microneedling? This advanced treatment uses medical-grade needles to deliver radiofrequency heat deep into the tissue on the level of skin, fat, and ligaments. These needles create tiny, microscopic injuries that deliver mesotherapy solutions into the deep layers. Mesotherapy nourishes the skin with hyaluronic acid, peptides, and fat removal solutions to prompt your result. Micro injuries increase collagen and elastin leading to a smoother complexion and healthier skin.

Radiofrequency treatment explained.

Radiofrequency energy heats the deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen growth. Even though the body needs 2 months to respond with collagen production, the face lifting is visible during the treatment. The result is growing day by day. Patients experience tighter skin during the RF microneedling treatment. 

Pros of RF microneedling.

Toronto cosmetic clinic MedVSpa offers RF microneedling because it combines the best of microneedling and radiofrequency energy for face lifting and skin tightening. 

What are other results of fractional RF microneedling?

Besides sagging skin, droopy face, double chin, and jowls, the treatment addresses concerns like uneven texture, acne scars, and dark spots. MedVSpa personalizes your procedure based on your individual needs.
You see noticeable improvements immediately after the microneedling treatment: face lifting, and skin tightening. You see even skin tone, smaller pores, and not as deep as before acne scars in the next week.
Patients don’t have to turn to plastic surgery to treat their skin issues. The microneedling rf treatment does not require any incisions. The recovery after fractional RF microneedling is much shorter than after traditional facelift surgery: 3 hours instead of 3 weeks relatively.

Cons of RF microneedling.

While RF microneedling side effects are minimal, MedVSpa wants clients to understand what to expect. The needles go 3,5 mm deep into the skin. There is no bleeding. Some discomfort is predictable. However, numbing cream, we apply before the microneedling treatment decreases the unpleasant sensations. The majority of clients report them on the level of 1-2 on a scale of 10, where 10 is the highest pain possible and 0- no pain at all.

3 hours of temporary redness is the side effect, mentioned by the manufacturer of Scarlet RF microneedling. MedVSpa covers the redness with Skeyndoor BB cream and 100% of clients go to work right away after the Scarlet microneedling treatment.

Swelling after microneedling RF.

Swelling is a must-have consequence after any treatment that has a goal of collagen production. RF energy destroys damaged collagen. The first skin response to such a negative stimulation is tissue swelling. Microneedling delivers solutions like hyaluronic acid, peptides, lipolytic, and drainage solutions into the skin. The average amount of mesotherapy cocktails used during the one treatment is around 4 cc. The solutions work as nourishing components, helping skin to respond and restore faster to the radio frequency skin predictable damage. The volume of the solutions reinforces the swelling. The good news is that clients see the swelling was lifting and are happy with the skin hydration.

How to overcome skin dryness after Fractional RF micro needling treatment?

MedVSpa recommends increasing the amount of cream and serum you are using to increase twice.

It is very important to nourish the skin after the microneedling treatment. If your products are retail grade level, they barely contain the ingredients which go deep into your skin. The only new technology of cosmeceutical grade skin care allows your skin to respond to the treatment with their support. MedVSpa recommends using peptides, delivered deep into the ski with liposomes. The new products contain over 50 peptides in one product and have the “drone system, which scans the damaged cells. The peptides are forwarded to the cells which require SOS help, restore tissue and reinforce microneedling RF results.
