Very tiny needles are used to penetrate the top layer of the skin vertically causing localized and controlled damage without substantially affecting the structure of the epidermis. The creation of controlled microchannels in the skin promotes the growth of skin cells via a natural process of healing. Awakening the fibroblast that lies within the deeper layers of the skin, healthy collagen is naturally produced. The gentle stimulus provided by medical microneedling is considered far more effective than many other more invasive and expensive skincare treatments. It is a quick & easy technique with little downtime. After a course of treatments, skin structure is visibly revitalized, rejuvenated, replenished, and regenerated.
RF micro-needling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the traditional micro-needling procedure. The RF energy is delivered via small needles into the dermis. In addition to the benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the traditional microneedles, RF micro-needling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic.
Aside from collagen production in the skin, which is thought to underlie one of the reasons it may be beneficial for acne scars, it’s thought that microneedling can also help induce stem cells Trusted Source in the hair follicles that may lead to hair growth.
Microneedling may also promote the absorption of products used to treat your hair loss, such as minoxidil (Rogaine), topical steroid, platelet-rich plasma
