What Does Microneedling Do?

There’s no denying that microneedling is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today. That’s because it’s minimally invasive and produces results that improve a variety of facial skin concerns.

Dr. Anthony Farole, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and his expert team provide microneedling treatments from his state-of-the-art art cosmetic treatment center in Bala Cynwyd, PA.

Microneedling Basics

You may have heard of microneedling in the past. But, you are unsure about what it’s all about and how it works. Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production via controlled micro-injuries on the skin.

The process involves using a derma roller pen with tiny needles attached to it that puncture the skin. Each microneedle is 0.5 to 2.5mm in diameter and feels more like a pinprick than a needle inserted into the skin.

It mainly gets used on the face and treats various cosmetic concerns like scars, wrinkles, and large pores.

Microneedling is a safe cosmetic procedure that doesn’t involve surgery, anesthesia and boasts little to no downtime. Most people achieve optimal results after a few microneedling treatment sessions with Dr. Farole.

What Is Fractional RF Microneedling?

Fractional RF microneedling or fractional radiofrequency microneedling pairs conventional microneedling treatments with focused radiofrequency technology.

The concept involves using RF energy to heat subdermal tissue and further stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. Dr. Farole uses the INTRAcel Pro™ RF microneedle device to provide three-layer therapy to treatment areas.

RF microneedling is a form of skin rejuvenation that offers enhanced results compared with conventional microneedling treatments. Dr. Farole’s practice is only one of three PA cosmetic centers that use the INTRAcel Pro™ RF system.

Benefits Of Fractional RF Microneedling

One of the leading benefits of fractional RF microneedling is how the combined treatment effectively supercharges the skin’s healing and repair processes.

Microneedling creates tiny micro-injuries at precise depths in the skin to kick-start its natural healing processes. At the same time, the RF energy gently heats the skin to stimulate repair processes further and enhance results.

The combined RF microneedling treatment helps the skin grow back thicker, smoother, and with diminished signs of damage caused by acne, the aging process, and injuries.

Another benefit of fractional RF microneedling is how each treatment session requires little to no downtime. There’s no surgery involved, and the treatment’s side effects typically subside in just a few hours.

Lastly, each radiofrequency microneedling treatment session typically takes around 40 minutes to complete.

Am I A Candidate For Fractional RF Microneedling?

You might be an ideal candidate for fractional RF microneedling if you’re an adult experiencing one or more cosmetic skin concerns, such as:

  • Acne scarring, or scarring caused by surgery;
  • The effects of aging (wrinkles, fine lines);
  • Skin laxity;
  • Melasma.

Fractional RF microneedling is suitable for all skin types. However, the treatment isn’t ideal for you if you’re pregnant or have certain skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis, or are receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
