Skin Tightening With The New RF Microneedling | Los Angeles | EncinoMicroneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is one of the innovative new technologies for cosmetic treatments through the combination of two methods, which were earlier used individually for skin rejuvenation.

This combination med spa therapy, called RF Microneedling, is effective for acne and acne scar improvement as well as wrinkles and fine lines both on and off the face. It is effective on all types of skin and is associated with minimal downtime and few side effects.

 

Innovative

RF technology is meant for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation. For many years, it has been in use to improve skin laxity, rhytids, and acne scarring. Unlike lasers, this technology uses tissue resistance within multiple skin layers to transform RF energy into thermal energy.

This leads to the constriction of collagen as well as the production of new collagen. The benefit of RF over laser is that it is safe for all types of skin as no light is delivered into the skin to stimulate melanin.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides RF Microneedling to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.

 

How it Works?

As the fine micro needles penetrate the skin, they cause direct trauma by stretching it. This starts a repair process that prompts fibroblasts to produce new collagen which can effectively mitigate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Furthermore, the micro needles create tiny channels that enable the direct delivery of topical meds applied to the skin. This procedure is safe for all types of skin with a negligible risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation.

A combination of RF and microneedling enhance the outcomes that could be attained with either treatment by itself. This combination technology causes dermal collagen coagulation resulting in instant skin contraction.

In addition, it promotes the natural healing reaction of the skin which causes the replacement of damaged connective tissue with new, radiant skin.

 

Advantages

Radio frequency based med spa anti-aging procedures have been proven to enhance collagen production, which mitigates wrinkling and promotes skin tightening.

In addition to this, RF also increases the density of elastin in the skin which can further tighten the skin further. There is visible skin firming, stretch marks reduction, and textural improvements following repeat treatments.

In comparison to ablative laser resurfacing, this technology allows the treatment provider to adjust the energy levels and needle depth. It can also be performed in areas than the face.

Fractionated microneedle RF treatments can improve the appearance of stretch marks, wrinkles, and fine lines on the face as well as other areas.

The technique allows precise energy delivery through controlled energy intensity, delivery depth, and pulse duration. On top of this, insulated needles spare the epidermis allowing for its use on all types of skin. It also has a minimal risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

In comparison to other energy-based skin rejuvenation treatments, this med spa procedure presents a significant reduction in downtime and side effects.

 

Number of Treatment Sessions

The treatment provider may recommend the patient to undergo at least three treatment sessions to experience dramatic improvements in the skin texture and smoothness. However, this can differ depending on the cosmetic goals of the patient.

RF Microneedling can be an important step in a comprehensive wrinkle reduction treatment regimen. Wrinkles may require other treatments before this procedure to attain the best outcomes for the skin.

At the time of the skin care consultation, a qualified RF Microneedling provider can assist patients and create the most appropriate treatment plan for them.

Wrinkle Reduction With The NEW RF Microneedling | Los Angeles | EncinoRF microneedling anti-aging treatment adds an element of radiofrequency (RF) energy to the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF energy is delivered to affected areas of the skin (such as stretch marks) using tiny needles.

Along with providing the basic benefits of micro-injury to the skin by microneedles, the RF microneedling med spa procedure delivers radio frequency energy deep within the dermis which further improves stretch mark appearance.

The RF energy delivers gentle, uniform heat to the underlying skin layers. This constricts and tightens the skin and promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibers. The deep delivery of the RF energy leads to quicker and more dramatic outcomes for stretch mark reduction.

Suitable Candidates 

RF Stretch Marks Reduction With The New RF Microneedling | Los Angelesmicroneedling is suitable for almost all skin types and tones. It is effective in improving the following conditions:

  • Post-pregnancy stretch marks
  • Scarring due to acne and chicken pox
  • Facial wrinkles and fine wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity

A majority of patients will attain their final desirable outcomes with two to three sessions spaced around four weeks apart. The number of sessions depends on the patient’s response to the treatment as well as the severity and extent of the stretch marks.

 

Advantages of RF Microneedling

RF microneedling provides results that are similar to ablative laser procedures. However, the associated downtime and discomfort is significantly lesser.

The med spa treatment provider will apply a topical anesthetic before the treatment to ensure that the patient remains comfortable. The time taken for the treatment is typically one hour and depends on the size of the treatment site.

The skin will usually appear red for the initial one or two days following the treatment. However, the redness is mild and much less than is usually seen with laser treatments.

In general, patients experience little or no discomfort after the treatment and are able to resume normal activities within a day. The patient can apply makeup 24 hours after the procedure to cover up any redness.

 

RF Microneedling Downtime and Recovery

A majority of individuals feel comfortable to resume routine activities between 24 to 48 hours post-procedure and can wear makeup a day after treatment. Fractional radio frequency minimizes the downtime and maximizes the speed at which the patient can accomplish results in two ways:

Fractionated Energy

“Fractional” RF procedures such as RF Microneedling deliver energy to the skin in a partial manner. During each treatment, the percentage of the skin treated with fractional radio frequency can be adjusted.

If the entire skin is treated at one time (as in the case ablative lasers) the recovery period may be longer and infection and complication risks are higher.  

The skin experiences faster recovery and minimal risks of complications when it is treated only partially. Fractional radio frequency uses a series of sessions to treat each cell at least once during the series.

In this manner, the patient can attain the effectiveness of an invasive treatment with significantly lesser risks and a shorter recovery period.

Minimal Damage to the Skin Surface

Fractional radio frequency with RF Microneedling delivers energy to the area where it is most needed, which is the lower dermis. It minimizes the damage to the top surface of the skin. Therefore, patients experience less downtime and achieve better stretch mark reduction results.

Micro RF MicroNeedling Before After PhotosFor the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, RF Microneedling is safe and innovative med spa treatment. The procedure is designed to improve mild to moderate signs of aging from the face, while enhancing the skin texture.

Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides RF Microneedling to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

 

How it Works?

RF Microneedling procedure involves the use of very small microneedles, less than the diameter of a hair, to deliver safe radio frequency (RF) energy into the skin’s deeper layers to promote the production of collagen and elastin.

The polarity of the RF energy emanated from the system develops arcs of energy between the microneedles. This delivers energy underneath the surface of the skin in a targeted and less aggressive manner.

RF Microneedling delivers most of the energy to the mid-level dermis targeting the underlying support system of the skin comprising collagen fibers. It rebuilds the sites that have sustained damage because of aging and other reasons leading to a smooth and supple epidermis (the superficial skin layer).

The med spa procedure helps in rebuilding the damaged foundation of the skin, while enabling upper skin layers to be more robust, stable, and in their correct, youthful position.

 

Results

Fractional RF causes the skin to restore old and damaged cells. Therefore, the outcomes are not instantly visible and depend on the body’s response speed.

In general, the improvements manifest six to eight weeks following a session. For significant results, three or more sessions are recommended. The provider will include the number of treatment sessions in the patient’s personalized treatment plan developed during the consultation.

 

RF Microneedling Safety

RF Microneedling is a safe treatment as the energy does not affect most of the topmost skin layer. The treatment minimizes or entirely avoids most of the risks of side effects associated with deep chemical peels or aggressive lasers.

This unique treatment insulates the tiny microneedles. This extra safety measure protects the superficial skin layer, which is the area that is most vulnerable to damage with traditional anti-wrinkle treatments specifically in patients with darker complexions.

 

RF Microneedling for Specific Skin Tones or Types

This procedure offers a range of treatment settings enabling providers to develop treatments that are safe for all types of skins such as darker skin or skin prone to hyperpigmentation.

Therefore, RF Microneedling is more suitable for people with darker complexions or those prone to pigmentation or scarring in comparison to laser skin resurfacing. People with lighter complexions do not need to postpone the treatment during summer as RF does not require tan to fade to be effective.

 

Anesthetic Requirements

Patients do not need general anesthesia for RF Microneedling. The physician will perform this procedure after the application of a topical cream or injecting lidocaine to numb the treatment site. While most patients do report some level of pain, they state that the treatment is bearable.

In case the patient is experiencing discomfort, the physician may use nitrous oxide (also commonly known as laughing gas) for a pain and stress-free experience. These options will not impact the patient’s ability to drive themselves back home after the procedure.
