RF Microneedling: It’s like going to the gym, but for your skin
Cincinnati Plastic Surgery now offers RF microneedling!
Radio-Frequency Microneedling (RF) is a time tested and proven treatment for skin laxity, acne scarring, and scar revision.
RF microneedling works by using radio waves in conjunction with small needles to encourage the growth of new collagen within the skin. Collagen fibers keep the skin anchored to the tissue below. As we age, these ropes weaken and tear, allowing the skin to separate from the underlying tissue. This creates crepey, lax skin and wrinkles.
The RF waves gently heat the skin, which damages the existing collagen fibers. Just like muscles responding to a hard workout, the collagen fibers heal themselves stronger than before. The new collagen fibers anchor the skin to the subdermal tissue, reducing the laxity of the skin and increasing its strength and resilience.
Popular areas of treatment for skin laxity include the face, neck, stomach, and thighs. The procedure also helps with acne scarring, especially when combined with Bellafill injectable. Additionally, the procedure aids in improving the texture and appearance of scar tissues including large scars from surgery or accidents.
