rf microneedling

Microneedling has been a very popular option for people looking to add a healthy glow to their skin.

At Skin Care by Alyce, we have upped the ante by offering Radiofrequency Microneedling for our clients’ skin care needs. RF Microneedling takes the microneedling process up a notch by promoting a greater degree of skin tightening and collagen generation. This can minimize the appearance of scars and wrinkles in the skin. The skin regenerates cells and collagen, providing you with a supple and glowing appearance. 

About

Radiofrequency microneedling is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure that targets a deeper layer of skin than traditional microneedling. It can address acne, scars, brown spots, wrinkles, large pores, and dull skin.1 Following a RF Microneedling treatment, your skin will become smoother and firmer. 

Tiny needles penetrate the skin, triggering enhanced collagen and elastin generation while radiofrequency heats the deeper layer, called the dermis. Heating the dermis contracts the skin, providing a tighter and more youthful appearance.

Consultation

Your skin is unique to you, so having a consultation to address your individual concerns is the first step on your Skin Care by Alyce journey. During a private, one-on-one consultation with Alyce, you will have an opportunity to discuss your skin care concerns and goals.

Alyce will be happy to answer any questions you may have about Radiofrequency Microneedling and how it will help you attain firm, glowing skin. 

The consultation will include an assessment of your skin and the creation of a customized treatment plan to address your needs. If Alyce determines that RF Microneedling would be a suitable solution for your skin, you will be scheduled for a session and a cost estimate will be provided.

Treatment

During your RF Microneedling appointment, Alyce will cleanse your skin. Afterwards, a numbing gel will be applied and left to sit on the treatment area(s) to make you comfortable during the procedure. Once the topical numbing gel has taken effect, the RF Microneedling treatment will begin. Alyce will gently guide the radiofrequency microneedling tool against your skin, adjusting the needles to the appropriate depths to treat specific imperfections.

The Radiofrequency Microneedling is equipped with disposable cartridges containing tiny needles, which penetrate the skin, to the appropriate depth. The needles create microchannels. Simultaneously, the heat from the radiofrequency waves penetrate deep into the dermis tightening your skin. Following RF Microneedling, Alyce will clean your skin and apply topical agents which will aid in the health, feel, and look of your skin. The application of the hydrating topical creams will readily be absorbed by the skin due to the creation of the microchannels from the microneedles. 

The topical solutions are carefully selected based on the qualities of your skin. These custom topicals will provide you with amazing results following your Radiofrequency Microneedling session!

After RF Microneedling

Following your Radiofrequency Microneedling session, your skin may be flushed and tender. Applying makeup or heavy topical agents should be avoided for a few days following RF Microneedling. Keeping your skin clean, hydrated, and protected will maximize your results. Sunscreen should be used regularly to ensure your skin maintains its healthy glow.

RF Microneedling provides long-lasting, visible results!

The treatment affects the skin at its deepest layers, enhancing the structure and quality of your skin. Directly after your RF Microneedling session, your skin will feel smoother. After a few weeks post-treatment, your skin’s collagen and elastin will increase, providing you with firmer, tighter, glowing skin.2 You will also enjoy improvement in skin texture and age spots for a clearer, healthier-looking complexion! 

Based on the specified treatment plan discussed with Alyce, multiple Radiofrequency Microneedling sessions may be scheduled over time to give you amazing results and achieve your individual skin care goals.

If you are looking to maximize your RF Microneedling results, Skin Care by Alyce offers products and services to maintain your amazing complexion.

Facial Treatments

Facial treatments can vary from skin brightening to chemical peels. Facial treatments can be used to correct the tone of the skin or for added moisture. 

Acne Treatments

Acne treatments target blemishes that interfere with the surface of the skin. These blemishes include blackheads, pimples, and cystic acne.

Dermal Fillers and Injectables

Dermal fillers are used to fill depressions and enhance volume and projection in the skin. Injectables such as BOTOX Cosmetic and Kybella work to smooth the skin in different ways. BOTOX is a neuromodulator that reduces muscles’ ability to contract, reducing the appearance of creasing and wrinkles in the face. Kybella is an injectable that diminishes unwanted submental fat under the chin. Kybella acts to destroy the fat cells and the fat is removed from the body naturally.

Skin Resurfacing

Making the skin an even tone and feel is the goal of skin resurfacing. By eliminating inconsistencies, the skin looks and feels younger and healthier.

PRP Therapy

Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) is a serum that utilizes growth-factors from the body to repair damage and maximizes treatment results. Clients who decide on this treatment give a blood sample prior to application. The blood contents are separated, leaving only the platelet rich plasma. Following your RF Microneedling procedure, Alyce will apply the plasma to your face where it will aid in boosting the collagen and elastin regeneration!3

What is the difference between Microneedling and Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Both traditional microneedling and RF Microneedling can address deeper issues in the skin: skin laxity, wrinkles and lines, and scarring. However, due to the heat of the radio-frequency the results for firming and tightening are often faster and require less treatments than traditional micro-needling. 

What are the risks of RF Microneedling?

Like with any other aesthetic procedure, Radiofrequency Microneedling risks should be taken into consideration when deciding if this treatment is right for you. RF Microneedling is safe for all skin types and is minimally invasive. Immediate effects of the treatment may include bleeding, soreness, and redness at the treatment site. Bleeding during RF Microneedling is usually minimal and resolves on its own without requiring additional action during the procedure. In your one-on-one consultation, Alyce will discuss the risks, benefits, and details of RF Microneedling based on your specific case. 

Is Radiofrequency Microneedling painful?

RF Microneedling is well-tolerated by clients when it comes to the interpretation of pain. Alyce will apply a topical anesthetic prior to treatment and ice to reduce discomfort during treatment. 

Can I do RF Microneedling at home?

Many different ecommerce websites sell at-home microneedling equipment. Due to the differences between the clinic and your home, the risk for complications with DIY microneedling tools significantly increases. Often, at home micro-needling devices contain needles that are too short to make a significant impact on the skin.

The clinic offers a sterile environment and equipment, ensuring your safety at all times during treatment. The needles in the cartridges are designed and manufactured with precision and the depth can go up to 2.5 mm. Also, having a trained skin care expert administering the treatment reduces the risk of excessive trauma to the skin that can result in pain, infection, tearing, and scarring. It is best to have a trained specialist administer this treatment to enhance your results and mitigate complications.
