What is RF Microneedling ?
If home skin treatments are no longer proving effective, but you don't want surgery, try minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, like microneedling. Kenneth Farr, M.D. is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at VIP Cosmetic Surgery in Bluffton and Hilton Head, SC. RF Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin. These injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that boost the health and appearance of the dermis. Easily combined with other skin treatments, like vitamin-rich serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling may help minimize wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, and mild skin laxity. Schedule a consultation at VIP Cosmetic Surgery today to learn more about microneedling.
"I really enjoyed my experience here, I went in requesting a microneedling session for acne and scarring (no idea what I needed) and was pleasently surprised to learn more than expected. I was encouraged to have a more affective facial and laser treatment to clear the acne first and then in time move forward with microneedling after my acne is addressed. I didn't feel pressured into buying more things or spending more money, I felt taken care of. I was with Jacqui from the moment she greated me at the door. She is absolutely lovely. I enjoyed her energy and overall professionalsm. I felt listened to and understood. I am excited to go on my skin journey with her!"- B.N. / Google / Oct 23, 2021
what does microneedling do?
RF Microneedling is performed in one of our private treatment rooms at VIP Cosmetic Surgery and takes about 30 – 60 minutes to complete. First, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to provide extra comfort. Then, the skin will be cleansed and the microneedling handpiece will be passed over the target area. Once complete, a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied to the skin. Lastly, an SPF moisturizer with SPF will be massaged into the treatment zone to nourish and protect the skin.
After your treatment, you can expect your skin to be red and slightly swollen. These side effects are normal and will dissipate over the next few days. It may take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases before you notice significant improvements in the appearance and health of your skin. Most patients receive 4 – 6 treatments spaced one month apart to achieve optimal outcomes.
