Radio Frequency Microneedling is the latest option that we are excited to offer here at Advanced Life Clinic. This technology, offered by Emvera, is available on their dual platform product called Fraxis. Fraxis offers both fractional CO2 therapy as well as RF microneedling. This exciting option allows us to treat patients of all skin types for scars, stretch marks, skin laxity and much more.
This latest technology gives us several options in treating the issues that most people are concerned with, safely and effectively, and without surgery. Some of the options for RF Microneedling include:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Both for the face and the body
What is RF Microneedling?
RF Microneedling combines the use of 24, 30 gauge needles to penetrate the skin, along with radio frequency pulses to penetrate and deliver heat to the dermis. This procedure is done using numbing cream on the treated area, and then the application of the RF microneedling.
How does it work?
The needles cause initial “damage” to the tissue which by itself will lead to new collagen formation. The addition of the radio frequency to the needles causes heating, which will provide for a more effective stimulation of collagen formation. This new collagen can smooth scars, tighten skin, and provide an overall more youthful look to the skin.
The patient in this picture saw noticeable reduction in color and texture of her scar, with minimal downtime, and only after a few treatments. It is normal to experience some redness for a few hours after the procedure, but it fades and normal color returns quickly.
