Is Radiofrequency Microneedling the Best Treatment for Scars?Is Radiofrequency Microneedling the Best Treatment for Scars?
Throughout our lives, it is very common to collect a few scars along the way as life does throw us a few curve balls sometimes! although some are more obvious than others they can also cause us to be very self-conscious about them, that is until now! It used to be that once you had scars little could be done but that is not the case any more thanks to the power of Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling.
This amazing treatment for Scar Removal is a revolutionary technique that has emerged more recently and it combines the forces of Microneedling and radio frequency into an exceptional powerhouse. Microneedling alone has been a solution for scars for some years however it undergoes a remarkable transformation when combined with RF technology. It produces results that seem to make them disappear (along with our magic touch of course!) Let’s delve a little deeper and answer a few of your questions and look at how this dynamic duo works wonders to bid farewell to scars but also leave your skin looking radiant! (a double whammy!)
How does it work?
Microneedling alone creates micro-punctures in the skin, targeting scar tissue and provoking the generation of fresh collagen and elastin. A lesser-known sidekick, melanin production, contributes to the restoration of your natural skin tone. Introducing RF then amplifies this process by stimulating collagen and elastin production at a deeper level, setting the stage for even more impressive outcomes. Our award-winning Focus Dual device by Lynton takes this innovation a step further, with ultra-fine needles and vacuum technology, ensuring precise delivery of RF to the desired skin depth. Voila… like Magic!
What causes scars?
Scars are basically when the deeper layers of your skin suffer damage. As your body rushes to heal, it generates collagen fibres distinct from those in healthy skin, leading to scar formation. That’s where RF Microneedling comes in, conquering a wide array of scars including:
So what can you expect?
Expect a nearly painless experience during RF Microneedling, with mild discomfort at most. As the specialised handpiece gently goes over your skin, needles create “micro-channels” that awaken collagen production, accompanied by the gentle embrace of radio frequency. A sensation of warmth in the treatment area adds to the comforting experience.
Post-treatment if you follow the provided aftercare instructions, treating the area like a minor wound, to ensure optimal results you will experience mild redness for a short while. The number of sessions varies based on individual factors, with 3-5 treatments typically recommended, each spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Ultimately, radiant results emerge 3-6 months after your final treatment as the skin undergoes transformative remodelling.
