Victor Hugo once wrote, “When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age.” When he said these words, it probably never dawned on him that technology like microneedling would ever get invented.
Microneedling is a boon to many people wanting to effectively get rid of their fine lines and wrinkles the safe and natural way. The procedure involves gently pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles to stimulate collagen production.
Below, you’ll learn more about how this procedure can help you “turn back the clock” without having to go under the knife.
How Does RF Microneedling Smooth Your Wrinkles?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling involves an aesthetic specialist using ultra-fine microneedles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. As the microneedles penetrate the skin, radiofrequency energy gets delivered into its deep layers, where it generates heat. The heat is aimed at creating controlled microtrauma, which then boosts the production of collagen and elastin. The formation of new collagen, in turn, helps to fill in and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
Collagen is an important scaffold protein that provides your skin with elasticity, firmness, and smoothness. Like collagen, elastin is an essential protein that works to keep your skin flexible.
Can Microneedling Help with Other Skin Conditions?
RF microneedling— with its ability to promote tissue repair and regrowth as well as increase collagen and elastin production— has been found to effectively treat a wide variety of skin concerns, including:
- Dull or gray skin
- Dyspigmentation (hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation) and melasma
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Sagging/loose skin
- Scarring, caused by acne, burns, or other trauma
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage/sunspots
- Uneven tone or texture
While RF microneedling is most commonly used on the face, it can also be used to target other problems areas, such as on the neck, decolletage area, stomach, hips, thighs, upper arms, and the back of the hands.
