As you age, your skin loses essential proteins like collagen and elastin. You may start to see skin laxity, lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Microneedling alone can firm and tighten the skin, but RF microneedling produces even more dramatic results. If you are interested in this treatment, read on to learn how much RF microneedling may cost.
What is RF Microneedling?
Standard microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels stimulate healing and the development of collagen. The Genius™ RF microneedling system adds radiofrequency energy to your treatment. Radiofrequency (RF) energy enhances the effects of microneedling for firmer, tighter skin.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
The Genius™ RF microneedling system uses needles that transmit RF energy into the skin. This energy acts on deeper layers of skin cells, reaching layers beyond the ones reached by microneedling alone. This creates areas of micro-damage and triggers the skin’s natural healing responses. Skin cells will increase collagen production, making skin firmer and smoothing away lines and wrinkles.
How Much is RF Microneedling?
Costs for RF microneedling can vary depending on factors including:
RF microneedling system used
Number of treatments required
According to Healthline, a microneedling session can cost between $100 and $700. Depending on their skin concerns, most people will need between three and six sessions. Your Winter Park Plastic Surgery skincare expert will assess your skin and estimate how many
Good candidates for RF microneedling may have increased skin laxity, uneven tone, and lines and wrinkles. Genius™ RF microneedling is safe for all skin tones and even improves acne-prone skin. If you have an active breakout or a flare of another skin condition, you may need to wait until it clears up.
What Results Will I See With RF Microneedling?
You will start to see results within a few months as your skin builds new collagen. A maintenance treatment once a year can keep you looking youthful and smooth-skinned. The increase in collagen provides results such as:
Tighter, firmer skin
Smooth, even skin tone
Diminished lines and wrinkles
A brighter, more youthful complexion
Decrease in acne scarring
Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?
The micro-channels created by the Genius™ RF microneedling system close almost immediately. You can resume your usual activities, although you may have some redness and sensitivity for a day or two. You can use makeup starting the day after treatment to cover any remaining redness. Avoiding sun exposure and sunscreen will protect your healing skin from damaging UV light.
