Radio Frequency with Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the bodyâ€™s natural healing process, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin. Microneedling can be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other types of skin damage. It can also be used to tighten loose or sagging skin.
There is scientific evidence to suggest that microneedling does indeed help to improve the appearance of the skin. A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that microneedling was effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. Another study published in the International Journal of Dermatology found that microneedling was an effective treatment for skin laxity. Skin laxity is a common skin concern that refers to the loss of skin elasticity. This can cause the skin to sag or droop, and it can make wrinkles and fine lines more pronounced. Skin laxity can be caused by a variety of factors, including aging, sun damage, weight loss, and pregnancy.
Microneedling is generally considered to be a safe procedure with minimal side effects. The most common side effect of microneedling is temporary redness and swelling of the treated area. Specifically, redness in the area after microneedling is common and temporary. It typically lasts for a few hours to a couple of days. The redness is caused by the body’s natural healing process, which is stimulated by the tiny punctures created by the needles. Other potential side effects include bruising, bleeding, infection, and scarring.Â
In relation, Morpheus8 is a new type of microneedling device that uses fractional radio frequency (RF) energy to heat the dermis below the skinâ€™s surface. This results in collagen production and tissue remodeling, which can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other types of skin damage. Morpheus8 is different from other microneedling devices because it can be used on all skin types, including dark or tanned skin. It is also less likely to cause bruising or bleeding than other devices
Microneedling with Morpheus8 has been shown to be effective in clinical studies. In one study, 70% of patients treated with Morpheus8 saw a significant improvement in their skinâ€™s appearance after just one treatment. And in another study, 100% of patients treated with Morpheus8 had an improvement in their skinâ€™s texture and tone.
