RF Microneedling For Your Scars

Today we explore how RF Microneedling can help treat your scars.

What are scars?

Scars are the body’s natural technique of mending and replacing skin that has been removed or injured. Fibrous tissue makes up the majority of scars. Scars can form for a variety of reasons, including infections, surgery, traumas, or inflammation of the tissue.

How do we get them? 

Scars grow when your skin’s deeper layers (particularly the dermis) are damaged. During the wound-healing process, the body produces new collagen fibres that are distinct from the collagen fibres seen in healthy skin. Because your body focuses on repairing and healing the wound when your skin is damaged, the quality and structure of the new collagen are different. After your body has healed completely, you will be left with a scar.

How can we treat scarring?

There are many London aesthetic treatments to help target scaring. However, the RF (Radio Frequency) Microneedling treatment stands out the most, purely for its efficacy and life-changing results. 

Frequency of radio (RF) Microneedling is a treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency into a single treatment. For numerous years, microneedling has been used successfully to repair scars. It entails making micro-punctures in the skin to aid in the breakdown of old scar tissue and the stimulation of new collagen and elastin. Microneedling also helps your skin produce more melanin, which is responsible for your natural skin tone.

Including radio frequency (RF) in your Microneedling treatments boosts collagen and elastin development in your skin, resulting in even better outcomes. Due to its ultra-fine (0.16mm) needles and vacuum technology, our Focus Dual provides a unique manner of delivering RF Microneedling treatments. This guarantees that radiofrequency is supplied to the exact depth of skin required.

Is RF Microneedling suitable for me? 

Before you may have an RF Microneedling therapy, your scars must have healed. Scars that are still healing naturally are not eligible for treatment. Keloid scars are irreversible. Scar tissue that grows outside of the incision site, known as keloid scarring, is frequently reddish-purple. Hypertrophic scars, which are white and elevated, are sometimes confused with this form of scarring.

Radio Frequency Microneedling is increasingly becoming the ‘go-to’ treatment for scars. It can be used to treat a wide range of scars on the face and body, including surgery scars, injury scars, self-harm scars, acne scars, hypertrophic scars (raised white scars), sunken scars and stretch marks. 

What do I need to know and expect? 

RF Microneedling procedures are virtually painless. The target region will be properly cleaned and prepped before treatment to ensure that it is ready for Microneedling. After that, a specialised handpiece is passed over your skin, and you should feel a gentle pressure as the needles create micro-channels to induce new collagen formation. Radiofrequency is distributed deep into the dermis layer as the needles penetrate your skin. In the treatment area, you will feel warm.

Your skin may seem red and feel heated after your treatment as if you’ve had a mild sunburn. While your skin is healing, your scars will remain red for a few days after your treatment. You should treat the wound like a small wound and follow the treatment instructions.

After RF Microneedling scar treatments, everyone will have a different experience. Although you may notice a benefit after just one treatment, a ‘normal’ course takes 3-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Microneedling outcomes are usually visible 3-6 months after your last session. Dermal remodelling and the production of healthy collagen, elastin, and melanin take time in the skin.

Focus Dual RF Microneedling scar treatments, unlike invasive procedures, require almost no downtime. You may notice redness and swelling at the treatment site following therapy, although this is usually minimal and goes away after a few days.

A ‘typical’ treatment schedule would consist of 3-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. You can, however, continue treatment until you are satisfied with the outcomes or your skin no longer responds to our RF Microneedling scar treatments.

The results are long-lasting. The Focus Dual gadget stimulates the synthesis of new collagen, elastin, and melanin, all of which are robust and durable. You will not require any more treatment for most scars once your RF Microneedling course is completed. The only exception is in cases where the skin is severely damaged. Stretch marks, for example, may require ongoing therapy.

Your scars will be evaluated during your initial visit, and your practitioner will give you an estimate of how much treatment will cost. The length of treatment and cost is determined by the type of scarring you have and the number of sessions required to attain desired results.

You can find RF Microneedling at any London beauty clinic. Your expert will devise a treatment strategy that is specific to you and your scars. Feel more confident with RF Microneedling.
