RF/Microneedling is a wonderful treatment for your face, neck, and other parts of the body. By creating tiny, controlled injuries using microneedles, it stimulates your skin to produce more collagen naturally. You will notice improvements in the firmness, laxity, suppleness, and overall youthfulness of your skin in the weeks and months following the treatment. An added benefit is the immediate short-term plumpness of the skin that you can use as a pre-event glow-up.
Discontinue use of Retinol, tretinoin, alpha hydroxy acids, and any skin exfoliating products
Just prior to treatment, remove all makeup, lotions, deodorant or oil from the area to be treated.
Shave if necessary.
Apply a soothing serum or moisturizer. Avoid direct sun exposure.
Avoid makeup and harsh skincare products for a day.
While RF/microneedling can be used as a single treatment for brightening and tightening skin for a major event, we recommend a multiple treatment protocol of at least three treatments for best results.You should notice smoother, more glowing skin within about two weeks.
It can take between 3 to 6 months to see long-term results because it takes time for your body to start making collagen and elastin after a treatment.
Results are semi-permanent and do need maintenance. Maintenance timelines can very per the individual but most clients do maintenance once to twice a year.
If you desire to restore collagen and achieve firmer skin, you can typically see noticeable improvements with a series of three treatments. However, if you have acne scars, additional procedures may be necessary to attain a smoother look.
For optimal results, it is typically recommended to space out your series of treatments at intervals of four to six weeks. This allows your skin sufficient time to regenerate between each session.
