Not many people enjoy noticing how time affects their appearance. The combination of age, sun damage, and gravity can result in not quite recognizing yourself. But there are safe, effective ways to address some of those changes and to help you feel better about who looks back at you from the mirror.
Dr. Deborah Viglione and her staff at Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center provide services to improve your overall health, as well as anti-aging and cosmetic services. We know that living your best life includes feeling great about how you look.
One of our most popular cosmetic procedures is radiofrequency microneedling. Here, we discuss what microneedling is and how radiofrequency enhances microneedling treatments.
Microneedling has been around for a long time. It involves using many very small needles to make tiny pricks in your skin. These microscopic wounds stimulate your body to heal.
As part of the healing process, your body produces more collagen and elastin than usual. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin. Microneedling can address a wide range of skin issues, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dark spots
- Sun damage
- Sagging or drooping
Microneedling is an especially good choice for people with darker skin tones, as it’s less likely to affect the pigmentation of your skin in the way some other treatments might.
Dr. Viglione has chosen the Potenza system, which adds radiofrequency (RF) energy to the microneedling process. The addition of RF boosts production of collagen and elastin even more.
Potenza is a highly customizable system, which means we can tailor the RF microneedling treatment for your skin, specifically. Dr. Viglione considers the issues you want to address, your skin tone, and other factors in order to deliver the most effective and safest possible treatment.
Is RF microneedling safe?
Yes! If you’re looking for a way to improve the texture, tone, and appearance of your skin, without a lengthy recovery, RF microneedling could be a good solution for you.
In addition to being safe and not requiring a lengthy recovery period, RF microneedling is versatile. We can use it anywhere on your body. We often focus on the face when it comes to cosmetic treatments, but perhaps you’re concerned about your hands, your neck, or even the skin on your thighs. RF microneedling can help.
It’s important to note that you may need multiple treatments to see the changes you want. Although the treatments don’t take very long, you may need a series of RF microneedling sessions spaced apart for optimal results.
