Would you like to improve the look of your skin by resolving fine lines, large pores, acne scars, loose skin, and other cosmetic concerns? Microneedling and RF Microneedling, which involves radiofrequency, can beat back those early signs of aging and rejuvenate your skin. Best of all, this approach offers almost immediate results. Deja You Medical in Navarre, FL, is pleased to offer this amazing treatment.
What Is Microneedling/RF Microneedling?
This treatment stimulates collagen production by tricking the skin into thinking it’s been injured. Using a special instrument, a series of pricks are made in the skin, essentially creating a controlled injury. The pricks stimulate cell generation and encourage the production of collagen and elastin.
When RF microneedling is performed, radiofrequency is released into the pricks, causing additional controlled damage and enhancing the patient’s results.
What Cosmetic Issues Can This Help With?
This multi-purpose treatment leaves the skin thicker and smoother. Fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, stretch marks, cellulite, hyperpigmentation, and sagging skin can all be addressed with this treatment.
Where on the Body Is This Performed?
This treatment is usually performed on the face. Some patients also have it performed on the thighs, stomach, buttocks, or other parts of the body.
Can I Perform This on Myself at Home?
Although the concept of using a controlled injury of the skin to jumpstart collagen production may seem fairly simple, the technique that is behind this treatment is not. The pressure applied with the instrument, the sterilization of the tool, and even the serum applied afterward are all best left to a professional. If you try this at home, you run the risk of injuring yourself.
It’s also important to have an experienced provider first evaluate your skin and determine whether or not you’re a good candidate.
What Can I Expect From Treatment?
We’ll begin by cleansing your skin and applying a numbing cream. A special instrument will then be used to make tiny pricks in the skin, and if radiofrequency is being used, it will be released into the pricks. The entire treatment will take less than an hour, and we’ll apply a soothing solution at the end.
Your skin may seem tight and slightly pink afterward, but this will subside quickly. You’ll be able to immediately resume your regular activities.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the specific cosmetic concern you’re looking to have addressed. Although you’ll see improvement after just one session, some skin concerns, like stretch marks, may require as many as five of six appointments, each spaced at least four weeks apart.
How Quickly Will My Results Develop?
Patients usually notice an improvement in their skin within a week or two of their first treatment. And because this treatment jumpstarts collagen production, the skin will continue to rejuvenate itself during the 12 months after your treatment series.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Most patients enjoy their results for three to five months. Scheduling follow-up treatments every few months can preserve your results.
Who Is This Right For?
You Are in Good Health
Patients who undergo this treatment should be in good overall mental and physical health. They should not have recently taken the acne medication Accutane, they should not have recently undergone radiation therapy, and they should not have had keloid scars in the past.
You Have Healthy Skin
The skin in the area being treated must be healthy and free of inflammation and infection. If the skin is already irritated, this treatment won’t function as a controlled injury and generate the collagen needed to renew the skin.
You Want a Non-Surgical Option
This treatment is an excellent option for patients who want to improve the look of their skin without undergoing surgery or another invasive treatment involving anesthesia.
You Want Natural Results
Because microneedling and RF microneedling work by boosting the body’s production of collagen, most patients see their full results develop gradually. That means you won’t suddenly appear as though you went and had a cosmetic treatment performed. Instead, your skin will renew itself over time, and you’ll look as though you’re healthy and taking great care of yourself.
You’re Concerned About Scars
This treatment is more than a wrinkle-buster. It’s effective at minimizing stubborn scars tied to acne or previous injuries.
Why Should I Consider This Treatment?
It’s a Multi-Faceted Treatment
Some cosmetic treatments on the market do an excellent job of fighting wrinkles or tightening sagging skin. A benefit of microneedling is that it broadly renews the skin, tackling everything from stubborn dark spots, scars, and stretch marks to fine lines and loose skin. This treatment improves the overall tone and texture of the skin in the target area, leaving you with a healthy and glowing complexion.
It Can Help You Look Younger
If you’re bothered by the early signs of aging, this treatment can help by boosting collagen in a way that fills in fine lines and tightens the skin. It’s an easy and effective way of turning back the clock and refreshing your appearance.
It Can Bolster Your Daily Skincare Routine
An important side benefit of this treatment is that in addition to rejuvenating your skin, it can also bolster the effectiveness of your at-home skincare routine. The pricks the instrument makes in the skin serve as tiny channels that allow your moisturizers and other products to penetrate more deeply. This means the products you use at home will be even more effective.
It’s an Easy Treatment
This treatment is an easy way of improving the appearance of your skin. Thanks to the numbing cream we’ll apply at the start of your appointment, you won’t experience any discomfort, and you’ll start to see results within just a few days.
Fresh, Healthy-Looking Skin Is Just a Phone Call Away
If you’re looking for a convenient way of broadly rejuvenating your skin, microneedling or RF microneedling may be an ideal solution. At Deja You Medical in Navarre, FL, we want you to be sure that you look and feel your best.
