What Areas Can Radiofrequency Microneedling Treat?

  • Neck Skin Tightening – Tighten and lift laxity in the neck area.
  • Forehead wrinkles – Fine lines, frown lines, wrinkles, and creasing of the skin in the forehead area.
  • Acne Scars – Facial scarring caused by excessive acne and other ailments.
  • Sun Damaged Skin – Marks left by excessive sunburn or dark spots caused by repeated sun exposure.
  • Uneven Skin Tone – Brown tone from sun damage or acne issues.

What Does The RF Skin Tightening Process Look Like?

When you come into Malone Facial Plastic Surgery for your San Diego RF Microneedling treatment, the procedure will consist of using ultra-fine, micro needles that puncture your skin, in effect causing extremely tiny ‘wounds’.

Your skin would then naturally heal from these microscopic wounds, causing your body’s collagen production to increase exponentially, which is what allows your skin to become taut and firm, yet soft. This helps to eliminate surface scarring, and practically erase fine wrinkles and lines.

What To Expect During RF Microneedling Treatment?

Prior to the procedure, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the areas targeted for RF Microneedling. After this takes effect, we will use the Microneedling device to deliver several dozen pricks about 3 millimeters deep into your skin, which sends radiofrequency energy into the skin to help treat scars and wrinkles, resulting in a fuller, youthful look.

What To Expect After RF Skin Tigtening?

You may experience some redness and swelling around the treated areas after RF Skin Tightening. – this is to be expected, and typically only causes mild discomfort. Your skin may feel as if you have a sunburn in the areas where the procedure was active on.

How Does Rf Microneedling Work?

The microneedles and the heat energy provided by the radio frequencies stimulate your skin, helping to spur the creation of new collagen and hyaluronic acid. These are naturally occurring substances that help repair tissue and hydrate your skin.
