Dr. Anthony Farole and his team provide RF microneedling at his facial cosmetic surgery center in Bala Cynwyd, PA. RF microneedling offers a fast, effective treatment that tightens loose skin, removes hyperpigmentation, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Over the course of several treatments, patients see remarkable results.
What is RF Microneedling?
Microneedling uses a device with very tiny customizable needles that enter the skin and create micro-channels into the skin’s surface. When used with radiofrequency (RF) energy, this process works effectively to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins key to younger-looking skin.
How Does RF Microneedling Work?
Dr. Farole uses the INTRAcel PRO–RF microneedle (FRM™), an advanced RF microneedling system that customizes every aspect of your treatment to achieve the results you want. Only three practices in Pennsylvania offer this technology.
While the microneedles enter the skin, they emit RF energy. The skin cells in the area absorb this energy as heat. Both processes tell the skin to start producing healing factors, which close the tiny micro-channels and begin producing new collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin make up two of the main structural proteins in and under our skin, so when these decline with age, the results can include loss of firmness, sagging skin, uneven skin texture, and other signs of aging. By stimulating collagen production, RF microneedling helps restore skin to a more youthful state. New collagen and elastin make the skin firmer, fuller, and more resilient.
Rhinoplasty Consultations Available
Is There Any Downtime With RF Microneedling?
After RF microneedling, you should have no downtime. However, you may have some redness, sensitivity, and swelling for a few hours to a day, depending on the area treated. Dr. Farole’s team does have some recommendations for caring for your skin in the days after a treatment:
- Avoid sun exposure or wear at least 35 SPF sunscreen for two weeks
- Wait 24 hours before applying any makeup
- Use only mild cleansers and no exfoliating products
Your skin needs time to heal and build new collagen, so during this time, treat it gently and do not use irritating or harsh products.
How Long Does RF Microneedling Last?
The results of RF microneedling last an average of one to two years. As the skin ages and collagen continues to decline, another treatment can initiate the rejuvenation process again and help you keep your results looking good. Most people will need several treatments to see maximum results.
Am I a Candidate for RF Microneedling?
This minimally invasive treatment works well for almost anyone with signs of aging, especially loss of firmness, skin laxity, and sagging. RF microneedling can also treat a variety of other skin issues including acne scarring and melasma. Consult with Dr. Farole to find out which treatment will meet your needs most effectively.
