Micro Needling Vs RF Micro Needling

Many people confuse RF microneedling with just micro needling. The two share common things, but the two are vastly different and results are vastly different as well.

Micro Needling vs RF Micro Needling, What’s the Difference?

Many people confuse RF microneedling with just micro needling. The two share common things, but the two are vastly different and results are vastly different as well.

As we age, collagen and elastin production slow down. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks to your skin, skin texture, and skin firmness.  When we are young, our skin is plump, smooth, and glowing. As we age, our skin starts losing collagen and elastin, and the results are fine lines and wrinkles, loose sagging skin, uneven texture, pigmentation, hollows, and skin that is not glowing especially on your face, neck, and hands.

Other factors besides ageing can contribute to aging skin. There are environmental factors like sun damage and pollution. There are nutritional factors like eating too much junk food, or excessive drinking and smoking. There can be hormonal issues that causes acne and acne scarring. Stress is also a contributing factor on how your skin ages.  All these factors lead to skin that is not as healthy as it should be. 

What is microneedling?

Micro needling is a treatment where tiny needles penetrate your skin creating controlled cellular damage to the epidermis to the skin. When skill cells are damaged, they start to heal. It is the healing process that starts the production of collagen and elastin to form, creating renewed skin that is firmer, smoother, plumper and more glowing.

Traditional microneedling is good for slower and more subtle skin rejuvenation. If you are looking for better results, RF micro needling is recommended for enhancing the overall tone and texture of the skin. RF micro needling better facilitates the production of collagen and elastin than just micro needling alone.

What's Unique About Potenza RF Microneedling?

What is RF micro needling?

RF micro needling combines the best of two treatments, micro needling, and radio wave energy.  Radio wave energy uses controlled heat to help produce new collage fibres. When skin is heated to 50-75 degrees Celsius, it triggers the release of “heat-shock” proteins, which causes the production of collagen and elastin. RF micro needling also speeds up cellular turnover, so the skin gets thicker and firmer over time.

Radio wave energy helps your blood vessels get rid of toxins, plus the cells in your skin are enriched with hydrating volume and nutrients.  This creates cellular renewal that increases levels of collagen and elastin. After your RF micro needling treatment, your skin will feel noticeably soften from just the first session.

Is RF micro needling safe?

 

Unlike surgery or certain types of lasers like C02 fractional laser, radiofrequency treatment is a non-invasive procedure.  Radiofrequency converts to thermal energy and creates small “injuries” to the lower levels of the skin that prompt particular tissue repair and clotting. Unlike laser, it is safe for all skin types due to the minimal damage and melanin changes.  Research has found that RF treatment is safe and can be effective at treating mild or moderate signs of aging.  The FDA has approved RF for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

What are the benefits of RF microneedling?

There are many benefits of using RF micro needling. The main benefit is skin tightening. If you want to tighten your skin and looking for an alternative to surgery or ablative lasers, then RF micro needling is the way to go.

How long is the RF micro needling Treatment?

Each treatment takes approximately 30-90 minutes, depending on if you’re doing just your face, or face and neck, or other body parts like your abdomen. 

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes to your skin right away after the treatment. The most significant improvements to skin tightness will come months later. Because collagen and elastin takes time for your body to produce, your skin will keep getting tighter up to six months after the RF micro needling treatment.

RF micro needling vs Potenza RF micro needling, what’s the difference?

No, they are very, very different!   Potenza RF Micro Needling is a USA FDA-cleared, Health Canada approved, world’s first 4 mode (Monopolar 1MHz, Monopolar 2MHz, Bipolar 1MHz, Bipolar 2MHz) Micro Needle RF device.  Potenza has a patented Cushion Plus technology that allows the micro needles to push deep into the epidermis at the same time releasing radio wave energy at the precise depth to optimize collagen and elastin production.

How long does RF micro needling last post treatment?

Once you’ve had the initial 3 to 5 treatments done over 3 to 5 months, you do not need to repeat it for a year or two. Once collagen and elastin production increases, it will not decrease for a while, but maintenance is recommended to maintain the improved collagen and elastin levels.

Is there any downtime after the RF micro needling treatment?

There may be no downtime or little downtime, depending on your treatment. Because the Potenza RF micro needling procedure is highly customizable, you can get a mild treatment for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening that has no downtime at all, or get a more aggressive treatment for stretch marks and atrophic acne scars.

Is the RF micro needling treatment painful?

We apply a strong numbing cream prior to your treatment. So patients do not have much discomfort and say they don’t feel the RF energy at all.
