Skincare routines are necessary to keep your skin healthy, but how can you achieve a more youthful-looking appearance? Lotions, creams, and other skincare products promise you the best results, but they might not take you where you want that fast.
For younger and glowing skin, you’ll need first to start looking for skincare options that will boost your collagen production. Experts recommend the in-office procedures that can really make a difference right after the first session.
One of the most popular methods is microneedling with radiofrequency (RF), a game-changing technique your skin may need.
Here is what you need to know.
Microneedling is a procedure that works by running a handheld tool that contains tiny needles against the skin. This method creates micro-injuries (nothing to worry about) that can trigger your body’s healing process so that collagen is generated and turned into elastin. How cool is this?
For best results and ways to boost the benefits of microneedling, experts recommend microneedling with RF. One of the most popular devices is dubbed Potenza.
“With this minimally-invasive treatment, RF energy is delivered via small needles to the dermis, the deepest layer of skin,” explains Dr Jason Litner, plastic surgeon.
Microneedling with RF is also great because bleeding will be minimum.
Microneedling with RF and the Potenza device has been proven to enhance the texture and complexion of the skin. People claimed their skin is firmer, healthier-looking, and younger after the treatment.
This procedure can even treat early-to-moderate signs of ageing, and is not only for the face!
So far, patients who used the microneedling technique with RF experienced some mild swelling and redness. However, these side effects lasted for about a day or two.
Dr Litner states: “[…] prone to post-procedure pigmentation tend to do better with Potenza than with other lasers and devices…”
Remember to discuss it with an expert first. There are many other procedures, including microneedling or not, that might work better for you.
