Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a treatment that combines two incredibly effective therapies. It’s a great option for men and women who want to improve multiple skin conditions at once, without having to come in for multiple treatments.
Microneedling involves using a powered handpiece covered in sterile needles to create hundreds of tiny channels in the deeper layers of your skin. Your body responds to those microinjuries with a powerful healing reaction.
New collagen cells are created and as they build up, they smooth and tighten your skin from within. Adding radiofrequency to the treatment boosts the healing response even further by creating heat in the deeper layers of your skin.
The team at Revital-AZ Medical Spa & Laser Center uses the Scarlet SRF treatment platform for RF microneedling.
Patients and practitioners love the Scarlet SRF system because it can improve the appearance of many different conditions at once. Some of the skin complaints addressed with the system include:
The ability to improve multiple conditions with one series of treatments makes Scarlet SRF a great value.
The team at Revital-AZ Medical Spa & Laser Center first applies a thin layer of topical anesthetic to numb your skin. Then, your practitioner glides the Scarlet SRF treatment handpiece over the surface of your skin.
The handpiece projects short-pulse radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of your skin through the treatment needles. The energy is delivered in a teardrop shape that enhances the effectiveness of each session.
This creates tissue coagulation at the base of each microneedle electrode, a phenomenon known as the “Na effect.”
Your practitioner can select the level of power, depth, and treatment mode, ensuring that your sessions are shaped to suit your specific set of needs.
You are unlikely to experience any discomfort during your 30-45-minute session, but if you have treatments on your scalp you might feel a tugging or pulling sensation.
For the first day or two after your RF microneedling treatment, you may notice some mild redness and swelling. There is no significant discomfort and no risk of bleeding. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication is all that’s needed to address any tenderness.
