Using RF microneedling to enhance your skin

Dr. Steven Clark of Bluewater Plastic Surgery in Niceville and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical options to improve the face and body. One treatment he may recommend for patients with imperfections on the skin is radiofrequency microneedling, a reliable way of addressing skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles.

What is radio frequency microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling is a treatment that uses specialized equipment to create thousands of tiny punctures in the skin. The punctures are made using insulated needles that deliver radio frequency energy to stimulate collagen production in the dermal layer of the skin. The resulting thicker and more elastic skin can reduce or eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and other noticeable signs of aging.

What can RF treatment help with?

Radiofrequency microneedling is most effective for patients with mild to moderate signs of aging, such as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Still, it can be used on those with severe problems as well if combined with other treatments like laser resurfacing or chemical peels. Patients will find that with RF treatment, before and after photos show dramatic changes in the skin’s appearance and health with time and a proper skin care regimen.

Is RF microneedling safe?

Treatments are safe and effective when administered by a trained and experienced professional such as Dr. Steven Clark. Some mild complications or side effects that may present after treatment might include dryness, redness, itching, and skin scaling. This will resolve as the skin heals from the treatment process.
