Microneedling Radiofrequency

Microneedling radiofrequency (MNRF) is a new-age cosmetic procedure that combines tiny microneedles with radiofrequency waves to heat the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen from within, improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines, open pores, and give a more rejuvenated look overall.

The entire procedure causes minimal damage to the upper layers of skin; therefore, it involves marginal downtime and is safe for all skin types.

Candidates should be in good overall health without any underlying medical conditions that may hinder the healing process. It is generally recommended for those who are 20 years old or older.

You should avoid going in for MNRF in case:

  • You are pregnant.
  • Suffering from a skin rash or infection
  • Have a past history of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or keloid formation.
  • Acne scars or other scarring
  • Stretch Marks
  • Sun Damage
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Fine Lines and Wrinkle
  • Ageing Skin
  • Improving skin tone and texture  

The downtime of the RF microneedling procedure is minimal. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, it may take a day or two for your skin to recover. One can resume regular activities immediately after the treatment, with no downtime or special follow-up care.

Most people require 4-6 sessions of MNRF with a gap of 3–4 weeks to attain visible results. The number of sessions depends on the skin’s response to the treatment.

While pain tolerance varies in individuals, most people are comfortable during the MNRF treatment. Numbing cream can also be used to help reduce the discomfort.

  • Patients are advised to regularly use sunscreen, moisturizers, and other medications for areas of specific concern as directed.
  • Patients are advised to avoid using soaps, saunas, steam, and makeup for 3 days after the procedure.
  • Patients can resume their regular routine after a day post-surgery.

Some post-procedure effects that may be seen are:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Scaling
  • Mild acne flare-up

These are all manageable, and you just need to contact your dermatologist in case they do occur.
