About RF Microneedling

Ashburn, VA board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Brown utilizes an exceptional technique that produces excellent outcomes for our patients using a treatment called radiofrequency (RF) microneedling with Fractora technology. RF laser remedies have existed for a number of years and are popular in the aesthetics industry for its skin tightening effects. This specific sort of laser therapy utilizes heat to stimulate the creation of collagen deep within the skin to reveal a firmer, smoother surface. This technique could be used with microneedling to maximize the outcomes. At The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery in Ashburn, VA, we frequently incorporate this new process into our individual's skin care treatments to create healthier skin, a much smoother feel, and a luminous complexion.

Ideal Candidates

If you are 40 years old or older and are beginning to find discoloration, smile lines, age spots, and other skin problems (which include age and sunlight exposure), RF microneedling might be the ideal treatment for you. RF microneedling may be an excellent option if you want to:

  • Firm your skin, creating a more refreshed look
  • Enhance skin feel, pigment, and tone
  • Repair skin imperfections, like discoloration and blood vessels
  • Reduce the appearance of sun damage and age spots
  • Treat acne scars and other forms of discoloration
  • Rejuvenate skin for a younger, more luminous look

Procedure Technique

Microneedling utilizes an instrument (with small needles at the end) that is rolled carefully around the skin to puncture and make micro-injuries that "interrupt" the tissues and stimulate the production of collagen. Some even refer to this technique as collagen induction treatment. New skin grows as the skin begins to heal, leaving the surface looking and feeling brighter, smoother, and more refreshed. Although this process is usually done on its own, combining this innovative method with radiofrequency laser technologies has enabled us to maximize the outcomes for our Ashburn, VA patients.

This method is quite straightforward. The applicator that emits radiofrequency energy works by providing brief bursts of RF energy via a collection of 25 sterile, golden micro-needles. The power is delivered via the needles, which concurrently punctures your skin and returns the electrodes on the surface of the skin. The RF energy warms at levels, which offer cumulative and continuing results.

What to Expect

Your microneedling treatment will be performed in The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery facility with the use of a numbing solution to minimize any discomfort. During your procedure, the handpiece will roll over the desired treatment areas, repeating the technique until the desired outcome has been reached. Patients should anticipate minute pinpoint scabs to become pronounced 24 – 72 hours after treatment, which will naturally disappear when the inherent skin has healed. Outcomes become noticeable as skin heals over a month after receiving a microneedling with RF procedure. Optimal results generally call for 3 – 4 treatments one month apart.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does RF microneedling cost?
The cost for an RF microneedling session will vary, depending on your needs and the number of treatments scheduled to reveal your optimal improvements. During your consultation, our staff will answer your concerns and estimate your total costs.

How many RF microneedling treatments should I get?
Every person is different so some patients might require more procedures compared to other patients. Our aesthetic team will perform a complete evaluation of your complexion and take into account your needs and wants to decide how many treatments you will need. Usually, many people receive 3 – 4 sessions spaced about a month apart.

What are the benefits of RF microneedling?
An RF microneedling treatment is both safe and effective for most complexion tones and types, and it may be performed on almost every area of your body and face. RF microneedling delivers impressive improvements and very little time needed for recovery if you are not ready for a surgical facelift or body lift. However, RF microneedling can also help to update the appearance of your skin after a facelift or body lift surgery.

Does RF microneedling hurt?
After a local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area, you should experience minimal pain during the procedure. During the procedure, we will ask to ensure you are doing all right. When the local anesthesia wears off, you might feel a little discomfort briefly while your skin heals.

Can I combine RF microneedling with other treatments?
Even though RF microneedling delivers great outcomes by itself, you might think about getting it with a second procedure for more improvements. During your consultation, we will ask about your goals before suggesting RF microneedling along with any additional procedures.
