You may have heard people raving on social media about microneedling. After all, it has skyrocketed in popularity over the last few years because of its effectiveness.
But what if there was an even better version of microneedling that could do even more? Believe it or not, there is. It’s called radiofrequency microneedling, commonly referred to as RF microneedling.
Keep reading to learn how RF microneedling treatments at Medi-Slim Wellness can help you achieve enhanced skin rejuvenation.
Radiofrequency microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that can be used to address a variety of common cosmetic concerns. It works similarly to traditional microneedling in that many tiny, very thin needles arranged in a bundle repeatedly prick your skin.
The tiny pricks cause micro-injuries where the needles penetrate, and that action signals your body to begin its healing process. Once your skin is healed, you are left with a smoother, healthier, revitalized top layer of skin.
However, during RF microneedling, the microneedling device also sends out pulses of radiofrequency energy. These energy pulses stimulate your body’s collagen production and encourage the skin to tighten and contract. This creates more dramatic results than traditional microneedling.
RF microneedling can be used to:
Since RF microneedling can address so many concerns, it’s ideal for people who want to target multiple areas or concerns at once without paying for multiple procedures.
The radiofrequency microneedling procedure is extremely safe and is FDA-approved to help treat wrinkles and other cosmetic concerns.
But with so many different microneedling devices available today, it’s important that the individual device is also FDA-approved. Most inexpensive, at-home devices come with safety concerns and don’t offer the expert training necessary to properly use the device.
At Medi-Slim Wellness, we only use RF microneedling devices with FDA approval and comprehensive safety profiles that we feel confident in.
RF microneedling boasts some impressive benefits that other cosmetic treatments do not. Read on to learn about 3 of the top benefits of radiofrequency microneedling treatments.
We know that everyone has different cosmetic concerns. At Medi-Slim Wellness, it’s our job to listen to those concerns and help you address them.
For some people, their love handles are their biggest area of concern, while others want to target the extra skin around their stomach left over from pregnancy. No matter what areas give you the most concern, we can help you find a solution and some peace of mind.
RF microneedling can be used virtually anywhere on your body, including on your:
RF microneedling can even be used to address cosmetic concerns in delicate areas, such as crow’s feet around the eyes.
At Medi-Slim Wellness in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, we always tailor treatments to meet your needs. The device can be adjusted to different power levels to better treat specific areas and ensure your comfort. Additionally, we only target the areas that you tell us to.
The results you get from RF microneedling aren’t immediately noticeable, but they improve with time to create a flattering and natural-looking final result. This is because of the increased collagen production that the treatment spurs within your body.
RF microneedling typically takes less than 60 minutes to complete. However, it could take longer if you are treating multiple large areas. Still, this seems even quicker when you compare it with longer plastic surgery procedures that produce similar results.
Quick treatment time is especially helpful when scheduling follow-up appointments since you won’t have to clear your entire day. You can pop in and out for follow-up treatment in under two hours.
We require a consultation before any cosmetic procedure, not just RF microneedling. A consultation is the best way to make sure you’re a good candidate for treatment and that our practice is a good fit for you.
