Radiofrequency Microneedling- also known as RF microneedling- is a safe and minimally invasive procedure done by a trained medical professional. At Qazi Cosmetic Center we use the Morpheus8 device, which is widely considered to be the gold standard microneedling device on the market. This device punctures tiny holes directly into your skin to deliver radiofrequency energy beneath multiple layers of the dermis to directly stimulate your own natural collagen production. Our Morpheus8 device can be beneficial for patients of all skin types experiencing acne scars, visibly large pores, sun damage, dark spots, fine lines, and stretch marks with minimal to no downtime.
What is Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling?
Radio frequency (RF) creates heat which helps stimulate collagen production and subsequently leads to younger, tighter skin. When this is combined with an FDA approved microneedling device, patients have experienced optimal results over other more painful microneedling treatments.
Who is a good candidate for Radiofrequency Microneedling?
RF microneedling is safe for patients of any age and skin tone. The procedure has proven to be beneficial to those who are looking for scar treatment or are experiencing acne scars, visibly large pores, sun damage, dark spots, fine lines, and stretch marks. Those looking for a minimally invasive method of tackling these issues are encouraged to book an appointment to get started on their treatment today.
Is Radiofrequency Microneedling suitable for men?
Yes, Definitely! Men are encouraged to also book an appointment to receive the many benefits of RF microneedling.
How long will one treatment take?
The length of time depends on the area being treated, but typically expect the procedure to take approximately 45 minutes. Please allow for an additional 30 minutes prior to the procedure for the medical grade topical numbing to be applied as well.
Is Radiofrequency Microneedling painful?
We provide a topical medical grade numbing medication prior to the procedure and most patients describe a light pressure with an occasional spark feeling. It is typically quite comfortable. As your skin develops a tolerance for the procedure, we can often go deeper which will provide even better results.
How many treatments do I need to see my desired results?
We have found significant benefit with three treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart, however, long term maintenance is usually required for optimal results.
How soon will I see results from my treatment?
Results can be immediate for some people, however, new collagen usually takes about 3 months to build.
How long will my results last?
Much of this depends on how you take care of your diet and your skin but, for most people, these results should last approximately 3 to 6 months.
Should I take any precautions on the day of my treatment?
Avoid blood thinners and anticoagulants as well as alcohol.
Is there anything I should or should not do prior to my appointment?
We would not recommend going into a steam or sauna after the procedure, and would also recommend avoiding facials or waxing the treated area the same day.
Can I wear makeup after my procedure?
We recommend holding off on makeup for at least 3 to 6 hours after the procedure to help the skin heal more quickly and safely.
Can I get Radiofrequency Microneedling if I am pregnant or nursing?
The device safety has never been tested for women who are pregnant or nursing, therefore, we do not do not perform it for those patients.
Can I book a special event after my treatment?
Typically, you will have the appearance of a slight sunburn 3 to 4 hours after the procedure. There might be some minimal redness for another 2 to 3 days post procedure.
Is Radiofrequency Microneedling safe for all skin tones and types?
Radiofrequency microneedling is safe for all skin types including very tan or dark skin.
