At Araya Beauty, patient comfort is our priority. Before a radiofrequency micro-needling procedure we will discuss the process, making sure that your expectations are set and you’re ready for the steps ahead. At this stage, we’ll talk a little about your treatment history and identify any potential risks before proceeding.
Luckily, RF microneedling is suitable for most skin types and we will apply a topical anesthetic to avoid any discomfort or pain.
You are the ideal candidate for RF microneedling if you:
– have early signs of aging, like wrinkles and sagging skin
– have scars or pigmentation issues
– are committed to doing a series of 3-5 sessions with a long-term goal in mind
You are not suitable for this procedure if you:
– are pregnant
– are taking Accutane or have recently finished it
– have a skin infection, cold sore, or a disease like psoriasis
– are taking anticoagulant medication
In the 48 hours before your appointment, please avoid using retinoids (retinol) and anti-inflammatory medications (ibuprofen).
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that combines microneedling with radio frequency waves to improve the overall quality of your skin. RF microneedling is an effective treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, skin laxity, enlarged pores, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation. It can also be used on the body to help with problems like cellulite, stretch marks, or excessive sweating.
Traditional microneedling is a facial that uses tiny needles to create pinprick wounds in the skin. This gentle damage triggers the production of collagen and elastin, a healing response which results in smoother and thicker skin. This is also known as collagen induction therapy.
Adding radiofrequency to a microneedling treatment sends waves into the pinprick wounds that microneedling has created, deepening the damage and enhancing the natural healing response your skin has. Radiofrequency microneedling triggers tissue tightening and skin healing at a very deep level, offering long-term rejuvenation with a series of treatment sessions.
