Everything You Should Know About Secret RF and Morpheus 8
Looking for an effective way to get rid of the signs of aging and other skin defects? Most of these problems can be traced to declining collagen production. Unfortunately, consuming or applying collagen topically cannot prompt collagen production in the skin. This is where radiofrequency micro-needling comes in. It is among the most effective solutions out there for skin rejuvenation in as few as 3-4 sessions.
What is Radiofrequency micro-needling?
Radiofrequency micro-needling is a cosmetic procedure that combines two of the most advanced aesthetic technologies – micro-needling, also known as collagen induction technology and radiofrequency a powerful mode of skin tightening. Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that delivers the collagen-boosting effects of micro-needling while silmutaneously adding the skin tightening effects of radiofrequency technology.
In essence, this procedure harnesses radiofrequency waves to produce heat that penetrates targeted layers of your skin to encourage natural collagen and elastin production. This treatment has proven to be effective in improving the appearance of the skin and restoring a youthful glow. The multilayered treatment is typically customized to address the skin type and specific concerns of every patient.
How does radiofrequency micro needling work?
Radiofrequency micro-needling is similar to conventional micro needling in that it involves the use of small needles to create punctures on the top layer of the skin. The only difference is that in RF micro-needling, the needles deliver RF energy deep into the dermis to add to the impact of micro-needling. It is a safe and highly effective.
During the procedure, your doctor will cleanse your face to get rid of impurities and apply a topical anesthetic cream to the target area. The micro-needling device with fine needles is inserted into the skin, and the tip of the needle introduces radiofrequency waves into the targeted areas of the skin.
The entire procedure takes just about 45 minutes, and you can resume your daily activities immediately. You might experience redness or swelling after the procedure, but it should subside in approximately 48 hours. Many people see some results immediately, but the results from the induction or reorganized collagen and elastin take a minimum of 4-6 weeks to develop and results will continue to improve. Best results are from a series of treatments.
Keep in mind that you might be asked to avoid alcohol, certain medications, or skincare products before the treatment to minimize the risk of complications. Many patients need 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results. Treatments can last 12-18 months.
