The skin changes dramatically with aging, losing firmness, volume and youthful tone. What if you could turn back time and restore more youthful skin without surgery? Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling treatments are a revolutionary cosmetic treatment to improve the elasticity and appearance of your skin. At Back Bay Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer RF microneedling at our clinic in Boston, MA.
Loss of collagen and elastin are two of the main factors that impact aging skin. As you get older, your body produces less of these important skin-structure elements. Skin becomes thinner and loses its elasticity, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and slight sagging. Collagen induction therapies like microneedling and RF treatments can reverse these early skin aging traits.
Skin Tightening Treatments
Radiofrequency creates a thermal energy that can be directed into the deeper layers of the skin. The heat energy stimulates collagen production to repair aging skin. When combined with microneedling, the RF energy is delivered deeper and both treatments work synergistically to increase collagen and elastin in the skin. With a series of treatments, the skin can tighten and improve in tone, texture and overall appearance. Some of the benefits include:
- Reducing lines and wrinkles
- Diminishing age or brown spots
- Tighten sagging skin on the jowls, jawline, chest or neck
- Reduce acne and other minor scarring
- Refresh the skin tone and texture
RF microneedling treatments can be performed in about an hour, and there is minimal discomfort or downtime required. Most patients can benefit from 3-4 treatments to produce the desired results over several months. After each treatment, more collagen and elastin are produced to firm, tighten and heal the skin. This is a wonderful skin rejuvenation treatment to create more youthful skin for those with skin damage from scarring, aging, sun exposure and other factors. The results can last for years, especially with ongoing maintenance treatments.
