Radiofrequency Micro Needling The ‘In’ Buzz word…So what’s all the hype about?

Let’s talk about anti-aging skincare. Skincare has come a long way since the first days of Noxzema and Ponds cold cream.  It’s totally inevitable, that after age 30; your skin will show signs of aging. The symptoms: skin loosens up because it starts to lose proteins called collagen and elastin, the substances that make the skin firm. Over time, the result is wrinkles, sagging, and a crepey appearance on your neck, face, and hands.
Because of the advancements in science and technology, we have been given some of the best and most revolutionary anti-aging skincare treatments that bring incredible results to both men and women. One of those amazing treatments is Radio Frequency Micro-needling.
Other options include dermal fillers like Juvederm which is an injectable hyaluronic acid that can improve the appearance of wrinkles for several months by volumizing and supporting the creases of the face. Alternatively, plastic surgery is an option, but as expected, it is expensive and the downtime for recovery can be weeks to months.
If you’re looking to try something other than fillers that’s longer lasting and you don’t want to commit to any major surgery (just yet!), you may want to consider the Genius RF Micro Needling offered here at Defy Nature.  Upon entry into the skin, RF Micro-needling causes your body’s natural response to produce new collagen-rich tissue that tightens skin, reduces scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and fine lines. It will improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin. Faster cell turnover means quicker results than traditional microneedling. Recovery time is much shorter compared to traditional microneedling, laser resurfacing treatments, and chemical peels. While traditional microneedling has been utilized for more than 25 years, this latest innovative procedure incorporates radiofrequency energy to aid the rejuvenation process which creates a more powerful result. Patients will receive treatment in one of our comfortable treatment rooms by a skilled and experienced provider. Safety and patient comfort are two of our priorities with each microneedling treatment. Patients experiencing an RF microneedling session at Defy Nature will first have a topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area. Once the skin has been numbed, the tiny needles will penetrate the skin where RF energy is applied through the special gold-coated needles. One session can last up to 1 hour and for best results, most patients would opt for a series of three treatments spaced one month apart.       At  Defy Nature our Genius RF Microneedling is one of our patients’ favorite procedures. They are seeing significant, long-term results on their face and neck after their series of three. It takes time (and patience!)  for your skin to produce new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. You should see changes to your skin tone and appearance within two to six months. Depending on sun damage, age, and lifestyle some people need three to six treatments. Collagen rebuilding requires time to fully rebuild itself.
