Revitalize Your Skin

MG Plastic Surgery offers microneedling and RF microneedling for patients in Scottsdale, Arizona. If you want to revitalize your skin and dramatically improve the texture, tone, and radiance of your complexion, microneedling and radiofrequency microneedling can give you the desired results. 

Why Does My Skin Look Dull, Tired, and Wrinkled?

As we age, the production of collagen and elastin in our bodies slows. These proteins keep our skin firm, plump, and youthful-looking. Without them, the skin becomes thinner and saggier, folding in on itself to create lines and wrinkles that generally make it look dull and coarse. While time is a significant factor, this process can be sped up by genetics, sun damage, excessive smoking and drinking, air pollution, weight fluctuation, or a poor diet. To combat these effects and keep your skin looking its best, microneedling and RF microneedling can improve the appearance of your skin. Additionally, it’s essential to follow a quality skincare routine, using ingredients such as retinol, which can help increase collagen production, or hyaluronic acid to hydrate your skin and prevent dryness. Wearing sunscreen daily will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Microneedling & RF Microneedling: Everything You Need to Know

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which results in the production of new collagen, elastin, and skin cells. It is a versatile treatment that can be customized to address many different concerns, including improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, burst blood vessels, rosacea, large pores, sun damage, and other textural irregularities on the skin.

What Is RF Microneedling?

This treatment works similarly but combines the elements of radiofrequency energy and traditional microneedling. The radiofrequency energy is delivered via the needles to the skin, which helps to stimulate collagen production and offers skin tightening, scar reduction, and wrinkle reduction. The amount of radiofrequency energy used can be adjusted to suit specific skin conditions or areas of the body, and the depth of its application can also be adjusted. The treatment involves a series spaced four to six weeks apart.

Which Treatment Is Preferred?

Many patients prefer radiofrequency microneedling because it stimulates extra collagen production, which may make the treatment more effective. Some patients find that the results from this kind of treatment are more dramatic and last longer.

You also may need fewer sessions to see results. Ultimately, both treatments can offer brighter, smoother skin with fewer blemishes and lines, so choosing between the two will come down to factors like cost and time.

What Happens Before a Treatment?

The process generally starts with a consultation with your dermatologist or esthetician at MG Plastic Surgery. During this initial meeting, we will discuss your skin concerns and any questions or concerns you may have about the treatment. We will also look over your medical history to ensure you are a healthy candidate. We then work together to decide what treatment will work best for you and your lifestyle – RF or standard microneedling.

Your Appointment

After identifying the treatment areas, we cleanse and numb the area to minimize your discomfort. We then pass the small microneedling device containing tiny needles over your skin’s surface. The needles puncture the skin and create minor, invisible wounds that stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

If you’re receiving RF microneedling, these needles deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin. The entire procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. After both treatments, we apply a soothing ointment or cream to the treated area.

Microneedling Scar Treatment

Scars from acne, surgery, or other trauma can have a dramatic effect on your appearance. When combined with special serums, microneedling offers an effective solution to minimize the appearance of scars. The tiny needles penetrate the skin, creating micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s healing process and encourage the production of collagen. Over the treatment course, the natural skin revitalization process softens scars for a smoother texture and more even tone.
