Microneedling is one of the latest buzzwords that is taking the beauty and aesthetics world by storm. Microneedling is a procedure that uses a dermaroller with tiny needles to prick the skin. Treatment aims to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Time has shown that microneedling can effectively rejuvenate the skin, deal with acne and scarring, and help skincare products penetrate the epidermis better.

Just do a quick Google search, and you will find all kinds of dermarollers with different lengths of needles (from about 0.2 mm to 1 mm) in lots of price ranges. If this is something that you are interested in, it becomes even more confusing when you realize there are not only at-home treatments but professional aesthetic microneedling skin treatments as well! What’s your best option?

Going with a professional might cost more upfront. Still, estheticians can individualize the treatment, and some aesthetic practices offer microneedling combined with radio frequency energy, increasing the skin treatment’s efficacy.

The combination of radio frequency energy and microneedling is a cutting-edge technology clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging and regenerate the skin, including sensitive skin such as hands and décolleté. During treatment, fine micro-pins use radio frequency to penetrate the skin’s dermal layer. The micro-pins then stimulate the body to produce hyaluronic acid, new collagen, and elastin naturally. The result is significant with long-term dermal volumizing, wrinkle reduction, and skin resurfacing. Unlike other fractional laser treatments, the post-treatment epidermal response is mild, doesn’t affect the patient’s lifestyle, and is effective on all skin types.

Downtime for RF Microneedling is minimal, enabling patients to resume normal activity immediately. Discomfort is minimized via critical safety and technology innovations, with minimal side effects (light bruising, micro-needling exploiting). These reasons are persuasive when considering whether to go to a professional aesthetic practice or just trying at-home skin treatment.
