Microneedling radiofrequency is one of the revolutionary treatment especially for darker skin types. Here the most frequently asked questions about this technology will be discussed.
Q- What is micro needling Radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency energy is ELECTRICAL energy which is delivered into the skin heating the targeted area which is collagen. Collagen needs to be heated to approximately 60 degrees Celsius to produce new collagen which results in tissue tightening and remodeling.
Microneedling is the process of using very small needles on the skin for collagen induction. Traditional micro needling utilizes a dermaroller and is not associated with a light or energy device. A combination of these two is known as micro needling radiofrequency(MNRF).
Q- Which technology is being used in DSHS?
EndyMeds 3DEEP is the most effective and focused RF technology Unlike Monopolar or Bipolar RF technologies, which are superficial and are often painful or risky to the epidermis, 3DEEP delivers controlled energy deep into the dermis, reaching 52C - 55C, with minimal epidermal heat for optimal, painless collagen remodeling.The Intensif handpiece has non-insulated gold needles . It uses Fractional Pulse Mode technology, to generate more heat safely into the dermis for better collagen remodeling. with significantly higher heating offered than insulated needles. The Intensifs unique needles require less passes for a single treatment, for shorter treatment times and greater patient comfort, and provide quick treatment recovery times, with no bleeding or bruising.
The high precision needle depth, adjustable and ranging from 0.5mm to 5mm strength of Intensif, provides a very effective treatment suitable to the particular treatment area. It is the perfect solution for treating acne, acne scars, stretchmarks, deep wrinkles and improving skin texture. Intensif treatments provide significant initial visible results, with continual skin improvement, well after the completion of treatments.
Q- What are the side effects of the treatment?
MNRF is one of the safest treatment for collagen induction as it does not utilize light based technology and is colour blind. The Intensif does not damage the top layer of skin hence reducing the chances of post inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
Q- What to expect during and after the procedure?
You may experience a pricking like pain but a topical anaesthesia really helps in numbing all sensations. There might be slight redness that lasts for 24 to 48 hours. Some patients may experience track marks of the needle which fade within a week.There are no major side effects seen with this procedure.
