Can RF Microneedling Improve the Texture of My Skin?
Many people want to achieve smooth and flawless skin. Though over-the-counter creams promise to deliver results, they aren't as effective or long-lasting as professional treatments. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling involves combining two cutting-edge techniques to boost collagen production and natural cell turnover.
If you have problems with rough skin texture, such as fine lines, acne scars, or enlarged pores, call The Med Spa of North Texas to book a consultation in Allen, TX. We can provide information about our Virtue RF microneedling system and explain the potential benefits.
What causes poor skin texture?
Many factors impact the health and appearance of our skin, including:
- Age: Fine lines and wrinkles become more common as we lose collagen production in our 30s, a protein responsible for tissue elasticity and firmness.
- Sun damage: Sunburns or prolonged exposure to UV rays cause our complexion to age prematurely.
- Acne scars: Acne breakouts sometimes leave behind raised or bumpy scars that are hard to treat through exfoliating products alone.
- Poor skincare routine: Neglecting proper skincare practices, such as not exfoliating the skin regularly, can lead to a buildup of dead skin cells.
- Unhealthy lifestyle habits: Factors such as smoking, poor diet, and inadequate hydration can contribute to skin damage and an unhealthy texture.
What is RF microneedling?
RF microneedling combines leading-edge radiofrequency energy and microneedling techniques to produce smoother, healthier skin. Treatment involves using tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin while RF energy penetrates deep into the dermis. This stimulates collagen production and regenerates skin cells.
What is an appointment like?
The Med Spa of North Texas provides Virtue RF microneedling in one of our procedure rooms for around 30 – 60 minutes. We provide a numbing cream or local anesthesia prior to the procedure for your comfort. During the appointment, a technician uses a handheld device to pass tiny needles over your skin. You may experience some warmth as this occurs, but this feeling is generally well-tolerated.
What can I expect after RF microneedling?
Almost immediately following RF microneedling, your skin may appear slightly red and inflamed. This should subside within a few hours. You may also experience minor swelling for up to 48 hours. Our team offers detailed instructions to minimize side effects and help you recover quickly. Results may not be immediately visible but should become more pronounced in the coming months.
Outcomes only improve over time as collagen production increases. You may see enhanced skin tone and texture, fewer wrinkles, reduced acne scars, smaller pores, and a smoother complexion overall.
How to keep your skin looking good after treatment
It’s essential to maintain a consistent skincare routine after RF microneedling. We recommend cleansing and moisturizing your skin daily and using gentle products to avoid harsh ingredients that may irritate your skin. Some people also consider sunscreen to protect against UV damage and further skin texture issues. Patients are welcome to book an appointment to discuss a personalized skincare routine.
