The micro-needling treatment is based on the natural rejuvenating power of the skin along with the regulated and gentle needling method fostering an organic self- repair mechanism.
In Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment; small needles cause tiny punctures in the skin, and radiofrequency delivers a current through the dermis. Both these modalities stimulate the body to create a wound healing response thereby helping renew the skin cells. Combination of these two modalities offers the best result of acne scarring. As the skin restores, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.
Radio Frequency micro-needling is used for:
- Acne scarring – treats superficial, medium and deep scars.
- Pore size reduction
- Skin tightening
- Skin rejuvenation
- Stretch marks
In this procedure epidermis remains intact; eliminating the risks of LASER resurfacing.
We often use Micro needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) since it creates clear channels for absorption of PRP to increase skin rejuvenation.
Treatment might require 3-6 sittings depending upon the type and depth of scars.
Downtime of the procedure: Minimal; mild erythema and swelling can be noticed for a day. Most patients can resume work immediately post session.
Post-procedure: We advise the use of a sunscreen above 40 SPF.
These features and benefits make this procedure of micro-needling an effective method. It gives efficient results involving significantly less epidermal damage than other alternative treatment.
