RF Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy and percutaneous collagen injection, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure. Using precise needles, the device stimulates the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing young, glowing skin underneath.
RF Microneedling is done using a device that contains tiny, fine needles to puncture the skin. Radio Frequency Technology is then delivered deep into the dermis and with the plucking of these needle tips, the device creates a controlled area of damage at the surface-level of the skin. The body recognizes the damage, even though it is not enough to cause scabbing or scarring, so it activates the skin’s natural healing process. The body triggers the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in improved skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks. This is an especially effective treatment for those who want to reduce the appearance of scars, wrinkles and pores by rejuvenating the skin under and around them. With no or minimal down time RF Microneedling is one of the best received treatments in the beauty industry today.
