What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
To create beautiful results for his patients, Dr. Arthur Schlyer utilizes a special treatment known as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with Accent Prime™. Accent Prime technology combines radiofrequency energy and microplasma for optimal results. For many years, the aesthetics industry has used popular RF treatments for skin tightening. RF microneedling uses heat to stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, which helps firm and smooth the surface. Dr. Schlyer can combine microneedling with other treatments to optimize your outcomes. At Renuvia Medical Center, we may suggest this treatment to generate healthier skin, a smoother texture, and a luminous complexion.
If you're 40 years old or older and are starting to notice smile lines, age spots, discoloration, or other skin problems (which include age and sun exposure), RF microneedling might be the right treatment for you. RF microneedling is an excellent option if you want to:
- Tighten your skin, producing a more refreshed look
- Enhance your skin's texture, pigment, or tone
- Treat skin imperfections such as discoloration or visible blood vessels
- Minimize the appearance of age spots and sun damage
- Treat acne scars and other forms of scarring
- Rejuvenate skin for a younger, glowing look
Our RF Microneedling Technique
Microneedling uses a tool with tiny needles on the end, which we carefully roll against the skin to puncture and create micro-injuries. This technique "interrupts" the tissues and stimulates the production of collagen. Some also refer to this method as collagen induction therapy. New skin forms as it begins to heal, leaving the top layer feeling and looking brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. While this process is often performed alone, combining this advanced method with radiofrequency technology has enabled us to maximize the results for our New Port Richey, FL patients.
This process is quite easy. The handheld device, which emits radiofrequency energy, works by delivering brief pulses of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden microneedles. The power is transmitted through the needles, which concurrently puncture the skin and return the electrodes to the surface of the skin. The RF energy heats at levels which offer cumulative and continuing results.
What to Expect
At Renuvia Medical Center, we perform RF microneedling in one of our spacious, private treatment rooms. Before the treatment, we will apply a numbing solution to help reduce discomfort. Once your skin is completely numb, we'll glide the handpiece over the treatment area, repeating the process until reaching the desired results. Patients should expect small pinpoint scabs 24 – 72 hours after the procedure, which will naturally shed when the treated area has healed. After a microneedling with RF treatment, outcomes become visible as the skin heals over the next 3 – 4 weeks. Optimal results usually take about 3 – 4 treatments at 3 – 4 weeks intervals.
If you're trying to lessen the appearance of sun-damage or aging skin or diminish acne scars, wrinkles, or laxity, RF microneedling is a wonderful treatment with proven results. Combining radiofrequency microneedling and skin tightening, this exceptional skin rejuvenation procedure has increased in popularity and continues to be a highly sought after, minimally invasive treatment for our New Port Richey, FL patients.
