Radiofrequency Microneedling Is the Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial: Here’s Why

Radiofrequency Microneedling Is the Ultimate Anti-Aging Facial: Here’s Why

Are you trying everything to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, but not finding success? These natural effects of aging spare no one, but with modern technology, there are new ways to stay young. 

At Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada, our experienced care team is here to help you look and feel young again. One of our  favorite procedures is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, a minimally invasive treatment that helps minimize the effects of aging.

Here’s a look at the top reasons we think RF microneedling is the ultimate anti-aging facial and the many benefits it brings.

Two powerful treatments in one

Radiofrequency microneedling is part of our suite of minimally invasive services. The treatment combines the power radiofrequency energy and microneedling treatments. 

While radiofrequency treatments harness heat to boost your body’s collagen production and smooth skin, microneedling stimulates skin repair at the smallest level by using tiny needles to trigger the natural healing process. 

RF microneedling saves you time and resources by giving you both treatments at once. This power combo results in younger, evenly-toned, and firmer skin — with no incisions needed!

At Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery, we use two different FDA-cleared RF microneedling solutions: AGNES RF® offers nine different microneedles with various sizes and shapes. Scarlet RF®, the first fractional RF microneedling treatment, uses alternating bipolar signal energy in short pulses to achieve amazing results.

Firmer and smoother skin

Collagen and other proteins (like elastin) get to work in the middle layers of your skin. Their jobs include making new skin cells and fibers and repairing damage to your skin. But in your 20s, collagen production slows and continues to decline as you age.

The new collagen fibers that generate after your RF microneedling treatment are tighter and denser, which helps target sagging skin. This leaves your skin firmer, tighter, and more radiant than before.

Results that last and last

At Carl N. Williams, Jr. M.D. Hand and Plastic Surgery, one of the things we and our patients love most about the RF microneedling treatment is that results last for a longer time. The reason this 2-in-1 therapy has a lasting effect lies well below the surface of your skin.  

Collagen operates similar to the domino effect — the more collagen in your body, the more it continues to make. The collagen-triggering processes of RF microneedling set off that domino effect; your body continues to produce collagen even after the treatment.

If you’re still worried about results lasting, you can use SPF products and moisturizers regularly to help seal your results. Plus, a booster treatment session can give your skin a little refresher if needed.  

More even, balanced skin tone

Photoaging, or premature aging of your skin, is caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. While sun damage includes wrinkling, it also can create brown spots and other pigmentation problems. 

RF microneedling triggers skin turnover, helping to minimize these sun-damaged spots. This leaves you with a more balanced and even skin tone, diminishing the signs of time on your complexion.

Acne and acne scars disappear 

Another great benefit of RF microneedling is that it boosts your skin’s health. As it triggers your natural healing processes, you notice many positive changes to your skin. If you struggle with acne, you’ll see significant improvement over time. 

Plus, acne scars you had before treatment become less noticeable as new layers of stronger, healthier skin replace the old. 

The procedure is fast and easy

RF microneedling is a quick procedure that doesn’t require any surgery. While you may need more than one session depending on your goals and current skin condition, each treatment lasts about 30 minutes. No downtime is required after your treatment session, so you can go back to your daily activities.
