RF MICRONEEDLING FAQ
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face with an occasional warming sensation.
DOES IT HURT?
Typically, the numbing cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free.
WHAT KIND OF SKIN DOES IT WORK ON?
Most skin colors can be treated, including tanned skin and dark skin.
WHAT IS RF?
Radiofrequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles for younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Treatment protocols are determined by your provider. Many providers find three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatments are available depending on up the outcome desired.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The total treatment takes about 45 minutes on the face, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
WHEN CAN I WEAR MAKEUP?
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize RF microneedling treatment during the first four to six hours, use our Boost Serum. We recommend at least six hours before you apply makeup, and suggest you wait until the next morning.
HOW DO I GET THE MAXIMUM RESULT FROM MY TREATMENT?
Start with with the right treatment serum, with the right recovery system. Follow your providers recommended recovery protocols once you get home. We suggest the inclusion of the Boost Serum. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and twenty-four hours off from working out, and you are on your way to maximizing the experience for yourself. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULT LAST?
Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
WHAT IS MY RECOVERY TIME?
Providers may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. After that time period, our patients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment.
