Microneedling with RF Epidermal Retexturing and S-Wave RF Dermal Skin Tightening
What is it?
The procedure involves penetration of insulated gold microneedles into the dermis to deliver high-tensioned radiofrequency pulses into the targeted tissue. This results in the body's own production of elastin and collagen fibres, making skin firmer and healther. Our machine combines RF with the microneedling so the RF heat is not on the outside layer of the skin. The energy penetrates much deeper leaving the top layer of the skin cool. Microneedling creates evenly distributed columns for healing in the skin and induces the growth factor to derive the mechanism of natural recovery. The S-wave RF dermal skin tightening has a direct R emission on the targeted tissue by fractional RF thermolysis (thermal damage by segmented RF emission).
When will I notice a difference?
After a few treatments, you will see a noticeable difference. We recommend 3-5 treatments for most patients, with full results present after 6 months. It helps with wrinkles, crepe skin, skin tightening, rejuvenation, reducing pore size and stretch marks.
Why would I choose this treatment versus others that are indicated for similar concerns?
The combination of microneedles and RF leads to a more substantial improvement in skin quality and texture. It is also effective in scar treatment such as acne scars, ice pick scars, atrophic scars, and burn and operation scars. Also, you can enjoy benefits like shorter procedure and downtime, it's non-invasive and a lower risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or scarring.
What to expect?
Mild redness and swelling may occur a few hours to up to 24 hours after treatment. Massage and excessive sun exposure should be avoided at this time. More aggressive treatments may result in skin flaking as the new skin layer regenerates. Non-comedogenic moisturizers and broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreens are highly recommended during this recovery phase.
