Everything You Need to Know About Radiofrequency With Microneedling

If you’re keeping abreast of the latest nonsurgical anti-aging solutions for more beautiful skin, you’ve heard about microneedling treatments and their amazing benefits. You’ve probably also heard about the power of radiofrequency energy to improve your skin from the inside out. But did you know there are many benefits of combining the two treatments into one safe, effective approach for the ultimate in skin rejuvenation?

Here at the plastic surgery practice of Dr. Mrudangi S. Thakur, with convenient locations in Jefferson Valley and Middletown, New York, we offer a comprehensive list of nonsurgical treatments to improve the appearance of your skin. Among these is the revolutionary Secret™ RF microneedling approach to aging skin. Here’s everything you need to know about radiofrequency with microneedling — a treatment that’s safe and effective for all skin types. 

Fractional radiofrequency with microneedling

The Secret RF system uses fractional radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling, so it stimulates all layers of your skin. Dr. Thakur customizes your treatment based on your needs for the best outcome, adjusting the fractional RF energy to various depths of your skin tissue to address fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and the effects of photoaging. 

The Secret RF device gives Dr. Thakur control over the depth of the microneedles and where she delivers the RF energy. As a result, the treatment stimulates and remodels collagen safely and effectively, with minimal downtime and discomfort. 

Secret RF treatments go deeper than other energy-based treatments but are gentle on your skin, so you get the maximum benefit without the maximum downtime or skin damage. In most cases, any redness or swelling you experience with treatment usually resolves itself within the first 24 hours after your appointment. 

Combined procedure is quick and effective

Because the Secret RF system combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling — typically two separate procedures — you get the benefits of both treatments in a single, 20-minute session. Most men and women notice a big improvement in their skin after about three Secret RF appointments, spaced about a month apart.

After your initial RF with microneedling treatments and depending on your needs, you can schedule touch-up treatments every 12-18 months to keep your skin looking its best year after year. 

Why RF with microneedling delivers optimal results

Radiofrequency treatments alone send thermal energy into your skin to improve its appearance. And microneedles create tiny, microscopic wounds below the surface of your skin, which prompts your body to repair these wounds by producing new collagen cells. Combining RF energy with microneedling means the RF energy can go deeper into your skin than either treatment by itself.

When you pair microneedling with RF energy, your body responds even faster, producing new collagen and thicker dermal layers for more supple skin. The treatment also helps repair acne scars so they’re less noticeable, smoothes out wrinkles, and improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin. 

If you’re one of the millions of men and women bothered by the appearance of aging skin, and you’re looking for a treatment that’s highly effective with minimal discomfort and downtime, Secret RF microneedling treatments may be right for you. You can explore this skin rejuvenation treatment any time of the year.
