Wrinkles, sagging skin and blemishes are common skin concerns that nearly everyone will want to address at some point in their lives. Thanks to advanced medical technology, treating these concerns is much easier and faster than ever before. One of the most advanced non-surgical skin rejuvenation options is microneedling with radiofrequency, combining the unique benefits of two distinct treatments into one.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Also called collagen induction therapy, a microneedling treatment uses tiny needles to create microchannels within the skin. This process stimulates the skin’s natural repair process, resulting in increased collagen and a younger-looking complexion. While many people have a fear of needles, there’s nothing to fear about microneedling – the needles on the device are extremely fine and the treatment is very comfortable.
How Does Radiofrequency Work?
Radiofrequency skin rejuvenation devices emit low-frequency electromagnetic waves that are converted to heat. This heat reaches the deeper layers of skin, where it can trigger collagen production and cell renewal for an improved appearance on the surface. The cool thing about radiofrequency is that it does not negatively impact the surface of the skin, but triggers lasting remodeling within.
How to Combine Microneedling and Radiofrequency
While microneedling and radiofrequency devices can work well on their own, results are only enhanced when these two skin-rejuvenating powerhouses are combined. Devices like Morpheus8 combine microneedling with radiofrequency to deliver enhanced, longer-lasting results.
During a Morpheus8 treatment, the treatment device first opens up the skin with microneedling, then administers radiofrequency energy. Morpheus8 can effectively treat a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and uneven skin tones. Results typically begin to develop within just a few weeks, with your final outcome becoming visible in the coming months.
Even better still, Morpheus8 is gentler on the skin than many other facial rejuvenation treatments such as chemical peels and deep laser resurfacing, minimizing downtime and side effects.
