Changes in the skin’s structure are what allow aging to occur. Lost collagen and elastin are responsible for looser, thinner skin that creates lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and sagging. While you cannot stop the aging process, there are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments to increase collagen and improve skin structure. At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, we offer radiofrequency (RF) microneedling for skin tightening and anti-aging facial treatments.
Both RF treatments and microneedling are helpful to increase collagen and improve skin appearance. RF treatments use thermal energy to stimulate collagen and remodel the skin from the inside out. Microneedling uses tiny needles to pierce the skin, stimulating a repair response without damaging the skin. When the two treatments are combined, they can significantly improve tone, texture, elasticity, and overall appearance.
Skin Tightening Treatments
RF microneedling treatments can offer beautiful results without extensive downtime or recovery. The treatments take less than an hour, and you will not feel any pain during the treatment. A handheld device penetrates the skin with the micro-needles and the RF energy. The microneedling aspect helps deliver the RF energy deep into the skin for incredible results.
After the treatment, you may have some redness and possible small pinpoint scabs on the skin for 2-3 days. There is minimal discomfort, and the skin will repair quickly after the procedure. The results are not immediate – the skin begins repairing as collagen is produced, which can take several weeks. Many patients require multiple treatments to achieve the desired skin tightening and skin repair.
RF microneedling is wonderful for anti-aging results. It can improve hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, lines and sagging. It can also reduce acne or other scarring on the skin. Patients experience overall skin improvement for tone and texture.
If you are interested in revitalizing your skin or reducing acne scarring, RF microneedling treatments may be right for you. Learn more by contacting us at London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring to schedule a virtual consultation or book your appointment at our London facility.
