Thanks to Andy Murray’s mother, the lovely Judy Murray, lots more people have heard about Radio Frequency Microneedling and have seen the amazing effects it can have on our skin for smoothing lines and generally rejuvenating our faces.
But what is Microneedling and what can it do for you?
If you are looking for a way to improve lines and wrinkles, help sagging skin, scars or uneven skin texture, this could be just the treatment for you.
The Magic Word – COLLAGEN
Collagen is the main protein responsible for the skin’s firmness and elasticity. However, by the time we hit our mid-twenties, collagen production slows down by around 1% every year. I have a number of treatments within my clinic which focus on stimulating new collagen production. THe Focus Dual device is one of those which works to give your skin back its snap.
What Is Microneedling And How Is Radio Frequency Connected To It?
In Microneedling, tiny micro-needles are used to penetrate the skin, reaching deep into the dermis layer. These micro-injuries create a healing response in the skin which stimulates new supplies of collagen. Radio frequency is delivered directly into the skin, heating up the dermis layer and further speeding up the collagen induction process. The result – smooth, even, rejuvenated skin.
What Does RF Micro-needling Treat?
The simple answer is lines, wrinkles and scaring, giving the skin a smoother complexion.
RF Micro-needling is proven to reduce the appearance of surgical scars, acne scars and dark spots as well as stretch marks. Old scar tissue is broken down and the production of new collagen and elastin is stimulated. It definitely takes more than one treatment, generally a course of 3 sees some pretty amazing results.
Micro-needling triggers the wound-healing response in the skin, enlarged pores can also appear tighter after this treatment.
What Does The Treatment Feel Like?
This non-surgical skin tightening treatment delivers great results with minimal downtime. You may experience a tingling sensation and your skin can feel warm for a few hours after the procedure. It is possible to have some redness following treatment but this usually subsides reasonably quickly.
Our state-of-the-art Focus Dual device uses two technologies: ultra-fine needles which are much finer than any other methods i have come across and a unique vacuum-suction technology. These factors help to make the treatment as comfortable as possible by allowing for a safer, deeper and more precise delivery into the skin.
When Will I See Results?
Most clients start to see results 2-3 weeks after their first treatment session. The increase in collagen and elastin leads to better results over time, with the full effect of the procedure being seen around 12 weeks after the final treatment.
