What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics is pleased to offer radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, an advanced aesthetic treatment that employs Cutera Secret™ RF technology to create fantastic results for men and women. RF microneedling works by delivering radiofrequency heat deep into the skin while puncturing tiny holes in the surface of the neck, face, or chest. Both of these techniques work together to boost collagen production and stimulate skin rejuvenation to give patients a smoother, tighter complexion. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be applied to the same region to further boost the growth of new skin cells for the reduction of fines lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars. To learn more about RF microneedling, schedule a consultation with triple board-certified physician Dr. Janice Alexander in Cedarburg, WI.
RF Microneedling Reviews
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Your RF microneedling treatment will be performed by rolling a handheld instrument with tiny needles over the surface of your skin to puncture micro-injuries that "disrupt" the cells and produce collagen. During this process, RF power is delivered through the needles to provide additional skin smoothing and tightening benefits. Patients who are adding PRP to their treatment will first have their blood drawn prior to the procedure. The blood will be spun through a centrifuge that separates the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells into a specialized PRP serum. When the microneedling portion is done, the PRP serum will be smoothed over the skin. Afterward, you may see redness on the treated areas for the next few days, but this will fade naturally. You should start to see your refreshed, luminous results as your skin heals over the next 2 – 3 days.
RF Microneedling FAQ
How much does RF microneedling cost?
Your cost for RF microneedling treatment will vary based on your needs and how many sessions are needed to deliver your optimal results. At your first visit, our team can go over all your concerns and estimate your total costs.
How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every patient is different, and some individuals might want more procedures compared to others. Our staff will take the time to perform a thorough assessment of your complexion and take into account your goals to help decide how many treatments you will need. Typically, many people receive 3 – 4 sessions done four weeks apart.
What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
The RF microneedling procedure is both safe and effective for most skin types and can be used on almost every area of your body and face. RF microneedling treatments deliver impressive results and minimal recovery time if you are not ready for a surgical facelift or body lift. RF microneedling is also a great option to update the appearance of your skin a few years after a surgical lift.
Does RF microneedling hurt?
Since a topical numbing cream is put on the target area, most patients have minimal discomfort during treatment. During your procedure, we will ask to ensure you are comfortable. When the anesthetic wears off, you may have some discomfort for a short time as your skin heals.
Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
Although RF microneedling delivers great outcomes by itself, you might consider getting it with a second treatment for even more impressive improvements. During your consult, we will ask about all your concerns and goals about your skin before suggesting RF microneedling as well as any complementary treatments.
