What Is Microneedling?

Jun 24, 2022 | Beauty, Medical

As new-to-you as it may be, skin treatments such as microneedling are gaining more and more popularity among men and women everywhere. A microneedling treatment uses small needles that lightly puncture the top layer of skin. Not only is it effective, but also nearly painless!

While it may sound a bit invasive with “needling” in the name, there’s nothing to fear. In fact, the emphasis is really on the word “micro” which, as the name implies, temporarily causes micro damage to the skin. This is controlled however and intentionally designed to prompt your skin to generate new cells. When a wound is created on your skin it puts your body into “working mode” to repair it, leaving your skin more radiant and healthier after microneedling treatments.

What is Microneedling with Radio Frequency?

Radiofrequency microneedling is an enhanced cosmetic procedure that not only introduces the use of tiny needles, but also radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate facial skin. The use of RF allows for a much deeper penetration, causing additional and deeper micro tears in the skin that prompt even more significant effects. At Resplendent, we couple microneedling with RF to stimulate maximum growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles, while also increasing collagen production!

How does Microneedling with RF work to tighten the skin?

Microneedling with RF has all of the benefits of traditional microneedling, plus skin tightening and additional collagen production. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of skin, causing constriction and tightening of the skin, as well as the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster results that are more dramatic. Naturally, because The RF energy is able to be delivered deep into the skin, each treatment produces faster, more dramatic results over traditional microneedling. It is the absolute best bang for your buck.

What is RF microneedling usually used for?

Some of the most common target areas for RF microneedling include jowls, jawline, and submental area of the neck (the space below the chin). Since it is known for reducing the appearance of acne and acne scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and wrinkles, the face is the most requested area. However, this treatment can actually be used to tighten loose skin on the inner and outer thighs, above the knees, and abdomen as well!
Morpheus8 can effectively correct the following problem areas:

  • Acne Scarring
  • Crepey Skin on Arms, Knees and Abdominal
  • Discolorations
  • Sagging skin of face, jawline, neck, and body
  • Stretch marks
  • Under eyes sagging skin and wrinkles
  • Wrinkles and fine lines on face, neck, and décolletage

Are all RF microneedling options equal?

Ask any esthetician or medical professional and they’ll likely tell you that one of their greatest passions beyond aesthetics is also research. We want the latest and greatest in options that are both safe and effective for our beloved clients. That said, you can rest assured that Resplendent uses only top-of-the-line and proven tools and techniques. This includes the Morpheus8 solution.

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive modular radiofrequency (RF Microneedling) fractional solution for full-body subdermal adipose remodeling. It delivers the deepest fractional treatments available, penetrating subdermal tissue up to 8mm (7mm + 1mm thermal profile). It is designed with four fractional tips with different micro-needling configurations, allowing our trained medical staff to select the appropriate tips and pins for customized treatment for maximum results on each patient.

When can I see results from my Morpheus8 RF microneedling treatment?

Fortunately, RF microneedling with Morpheus8 isn’t just more effective than other treatments, but it is also convenient! In fact, patients usually experience minimal to no downtime and have very few restrictions, if any, following a RF microneedling treatment. The treated area may be red for up to 24 hours. You also may experience some slight redness, bruising or swelling with small scabs that form in the area treated. However, again, because it is minimally invasive, you can expect any side effects to subside in a couple of days or less post-session.
