As our bodies age, the skin takes on more and more signs of wear and tear. Not only does this mean wrinkles and fine lines, but it can also mean loose, hanging skin that has lost its elasticity. Through RF microneedling, it’s possible to undo some of this wear and tear, restoring your skin to a tighter, smoother, and more youthful appearance. We are pleased to provide microneedling services to our patients here at Point Lumineux MedSpa in Sarasota, FL.
The RF Microneedling Process
Microneedling is all about making “micro injuries” to the skin, using tiny needles. This stimulates the body’s innate healing properties, including the production of collagen and elastin. This effect can be heightened with the addition of radio frequency energy—that's where the RF comes from. RF energy waves have a warming effect on the deep tissue, expediting your body’s ability to remake its own skin.
RF microneedling doesn’t require any downtime, but you may have some redness for a few hours after the procedure; after that, the redness should subside all on its own.
Scarlet Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling Device
At Point Lumineux MedSpa, we provide RF microneedling for scars and other imperfections, all with a device called Scarlet RF Microneedling. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to remove acne scars and stimulate collagen production, all of which can result in smoother and more youthful skin. The Scarlet device works for all skin types, and most patients are fine to resume their normal activities as soon as the treatment is over.
