Radio frequency micro needling

Radio Frequency Microneedling

Microneedling radiofrequency is a very simple, safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapeutic technique.

What is Microneedling Radiofrequency used for?

It is being used for a very wide range of indications including acne scar, acne, post-traumatic/burn scar, alopecia, skin rejuvenation, drug delivery, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks, and many more.

It is a simple clinic-based procedure lasting 10 to 20 minutes depending on the area to be treated.

To understand the mechanism of action of microneedling radiofrequency we should understand how scars are formed- scars are generally dermal depressions which are commonly caused by destruction of collagen after inflammation. This inflammation can be cause by acne, trauma etc. Most scar remodelling technologies are focused on stimulating collagen synthesis and rejuvenation.

Microneedling Radiofrequency Technology and mode of action

Microneedling Radiofrequency technology works by creating radiofrequency thermal zones without causing injury to the epidermis. After damage to the reticular dermis, long-term dermal remodelling, neoelastogenesis, and neocollagenogenesis results in dermal thickening. Which basically means that the collagen which is destroyed due to inflammation or trauma is stimulated and new production takes place.

Not all microneedling and radiofrequency equipment are created equal

While a lot of equipment claim to be based on Microneedling Radiofrequency technology but there are lot of things which determine how efficacious the procedure would be.

While evaluating where to get microneedling radiofrequency procedure done keep in the following points in mind:

  • Whether the procedure is performed by a qualified dermatologist?
  • What is the duration of energy pulse of the equipment to be used?
  • What is the needle tip technology- i.e. length of needle tip, the ability to set multiple needle depths per pass and type of needle (insulated vs non insulated)
  • Is the equipment FDA approved?

At Dr Divya’s skin and hair solutions we are proud to have the best technology - the first FDA cleared non-insulated motorized microneedle RF technology in the world. The device is powered by unique technology and it has an exclusive, smooth and fast operating mode. The energy delivery system consists of a disposable tip with non-insulated gold-plated needles which generate heat safely into the dermis for better collagen remodelling.

 

Advantages

FAQs

Although the number of sessions vary, most people need 3 to 6 sessions for optimal results.

Microneedling leads to overall decrease in scars and makes skin tight - it doesn’t make skin worse, whatsoever. However, it’s very important to maintain good post procedure care. Avoid direct sun exposure and rigorous exercise. The severity of microneedling side effects also depends on the preparation for the procedure.

The normal side effects expected are redness, itching, bruising and inflammation. However, these effects are rare as the procedure is performed by our expert skin specialist. Even if these effects appear it only takes a few hours to a couple of days for these effects to go away.

For 3 days post treatment, we recommend using a mild cleanser and daily moisturizer followed by strict sun protection through a sunscreen of SPF 30+.

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).

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.

On an average 3 to 5 sessions are required although optimum results are seen after completion of treatment upto 6 months.

Traditional microneedling uses a special device that creates micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the collagen and elastin production which leads to reduction in scars.

In microneedling RF technology of radiofrequency energy is added to the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF energy is delivered via small needles. This RF energy is delivered deep into the dermis this will further enhance skin tightening and scar reduction. Therefore, it comes with additional benefits in the form of a more comprehensive skin rejuvenation approach.

There’s a difference between laser treatments and microneedling radiofrequency. Lasers use light as energy and microneedling uses microneedles with radiofrequency to create multiple small channels of injury to stimulate collagen production. The biggest benefit of MNRF over laser is the quick recovery time and potential less side effects. MNRF is generally safe for all skin types. Lasers have quicker results but there are greater risks in terms of longer downtime and chances of darkening or bruising. So, it’s tough to say one is better than other. It depends on skin type, dermatologist’s opinion and results desired.

Yes, it leads to collagen remodelling and in the process apart from healing scars it makes the skin in the treated area firmer and tighter.

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.

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.
