Radiofrequency Microneedling at Hessler Plastic Surgery

This advanced procedure combines two treatments to powerfully work together and achieve healthier, better-looking skin. 

What is RF microneedling?

Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that creates brand-new collagen, as well as tightening the skin. Radiofrequency energy is administered directly into the skin through micro-needles. Not only do these small pin-pricks trigger the body’s collagen production; they also deliver RF energy which causes constriction and tightening of the skin. The result is a much more rejuvenated appearance.

What causes stretch marks and scars?

The cause of stretch marks and scars is damaged collagen. This is why a collagen regenerating treatment such as RF microneedling is so effective.

Collagen fibers in the deepest layers of the skin is what gives the skin its youthful, healthy elasticity. When these become damaged, the skin doesn’t behave like it’s supposed to. Creating new, collagen-rich tissue will greatly improve the areas of damage. 

Radiofrequency microneedling treatment details

When you arrive for your RF microneedling appointment, you will be made comfortable on a medical chair. The area to be treated will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied. After this, Dr. Hessler will gently roll the microneedling device across the area. This process creates tiny micro-injuries to the skin, which releases growth factors and triggers the wound repair process. This results in new collagen-rich tissue. The RF heat also works to tighten the skin. Most patients need 3 to 5 radiofrequency microneedling treatments. With each session, the skin will appear healthier and better-looking. 

Recovery and results

Patients can typically return to work and regular activities the next day, although you should expect some redness, skin dryness, flaking, and shedding which may last for up to one week. The results can last for up to five years, although maintenance treatments may be needed.
