Surgery isn’t always necessary for signs of aging. At Cope Cosmetic Dermatology, we offer the best in non-surgical anti-aging treatments for tighter, more youthful skin.

What is RF Microneedling?

Microneedling is a process of generating micro-channels in the skin using a specialized handpiece with very tiny needles. This process stimulates your body’s natural wound-healing functions and creates new collagen. RF stands for radiofrequency and is the next generation in microneedling. It works by emitting radiofrequency energy from the microneedles to generate heat in the deep layers of the skin and further contract and stimulate collagen. Over time, this process can tighten the skin and achieve a more youthful look.

What Are the Benefits of RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is one of the best treatment options available for anti-aging without surgery. It can achieve a variety of benefits for the skin, including:

  • Even skin tone
  • Firmer skin
  • Reduced laxity
  • Reduced pore visibility
  • Improved skin texture
  • Reduced scarring
  • Brighter skin
  • Reduced aging signs

RF microneedling is also one of the best options available for preventing aging signs by stimulating collagen production. This can help maintain the quality of your skin as you age.

What Can I Expect From RF Microneedling Treatment?

RF microneedling can take as little as 20-30 minutes. To begin, you’ll meet with our team and discuss your goals for RF microneedling. Our team will create a customized treatment package for your unique needs. Then, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. Your skin will be cleansed and made ready for treatment and the handpiece will be carefully applied to your skin. Once complete, your skin will be soothed and made ready for the rest of your day.

RF Microneedling Maintenance

It’s normal to have some minor swelling, redness, and sensitivity after treatment. You can help ease symptoms by using a protected ice pack for 15 minutes at a time. Make sure to use a gentle, unscented moisturizer on your skin and avoid any active ingredients or makeup products for the first 1-2 days. It’s essential to wear SPF 30+ after your treatment since your skin will be especially sensitive to sun damage during this time.

It can take 6-8 weeks for your results to begin emerging as your body generates new collagen. You’ll see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s look and feel which will only improve with subsequent treatments. It’s recommended you space apart your sessions by at least one month and undergo yearly maintenance treatments once you complete your initial treatment package.
