What is the difference between Microneedling and Microneedling RF?
Microneedling RF is a combination of Microneedling and radiofrequency heat energy to magnify the production of collagen and elastin. The radiofrequency is delivered to the skin via small needles. Microneedling RF delivers radiofrequency deep into the dermis, which further enhances skin tightening and scar reduction. Radiofrequency adds heat to the layers of the skin which results in tightening of the skin, and stimulates and enhances the production of collagen and elastin. Because the radiofrequency is delivered to the deep layers of the skin, it produces faster and more prominent results with each session.
Microneedling can significantly reduce and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks
