Are you thinking about trying RF microneedling and curious about how it can benefit your skin? This beauty treatment combines the perks of microneedling with the power of radiofrequency energy to help rejuvenate your skin and reduce the appearance of age spots, sun damage, discoloration, and more. At Brissett Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony E. Brissett and our team are here to check out your skin's specific needs and help you pick the treatment that'll work best for you.

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Before understanding the diverse issues RF microneedling can tackle, it's important to understand the details of the procedure. RF microneedling, also known as radiofrequency microneedling, is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the body's natural collagen and elastin production. By creating micro-injuries in the skin, combined with the application of RF energy, the process promotes healing and rejuvenation from within. This dual action accelerates the skin's natural repair mechanisms, and tightens and enhances skin texture and tone without the need for extensive downtime.

How does RF microneedling enhance skin texture and tone?

RF microneedling with the Profound device at Brissett Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX enhances the skin's texture and tone by stimulating collagen production. The procedure's ability to stimulate collagen production means it can effectively treat a variety of skin texture issues, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Sun damage and age spots

Patients report a significant improvement in the smoothness and overall quality of their skin, attributed to the procedure's targeted approach and depth of penetration. Unlike traditional microneedling, the addition of RF energy allows for deeper layers of the skin to be reached and revitalized, ensuring more profound and lasting results.

Can RF microneedling address sagging skin and promote tightening?

One of the most common questions Dr. Brissett is asked is, "Does RF microneedling tighten skin?" The answer is a resounding yes. The procedure is highly effective at promoting skin tightening, making it an ideal solution for those looking to address the following:

  • Mild to moderate skin laxity
  • Loose skin around the jawline and neck
  • Sagging skin on the face

The RF energy boosts the tightening effects by heating the deeper layers of the skin, encouraging the production of new collagen fibers, which, in turn, results in firmer, more youthful-looking skin. This makes RF microneedling with Profound a highly sought-after treatment for those looking to achieve a more tightened and contoured appearance without surgical intervention.

What will my skin look like after RF microneedling?

After undergoing RF microneedling, patients experience a transformation of their skin. The initial phase, typically marked by slight redness and swelling, mirrors the aftermath of a mild sunburn. This is a temporary state, lasting anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days, depending on the individual's skin sensitivity and the intensity of the treatment.

Within the first week, you might notice:

  • A smoother texture
  • Reduced appearance of pores
  • A more uniform skin tone

Over the following weeks, as the skin continues to produce collagen, the full spectrum of RF microneedling results becomes evident. This includes:

  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter, more lifted skin
  • Diminished visibility of scars and imperfections
