RF Microneedling at Harmony Facial Plastic Surgery

Harmony Facial Plastic Surgery in Nashville, TN, is proud to offer RF microneedling treatments. Our board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kate O’Connor specializes in minimally-invasive facial treatments to provide patients with natural-looking results.

RF Microneedling is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen and elastin production for improved skin tone, texture, and firmness. This process helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and scarring for a more youthful-looking complexion.

What is RF Microneedling?

RF microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create small channels in the skin. The needle tip has an electrode at its end, which produces heat and shockwaves that are passed into the deeper layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production for improved tone and texture, reduced wrinkles, and increased brightness and evenness. It can also be used to reduce fat and improve contours.

RF Microneedling vs. Laser Skin Resurfacing

RF microneedling and laser skin resurfacing are both treatments that can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, pigment issues, and scarring. While both provide effective results, RF microneedling has distinct advantages over lasers. RF microneedling only requires one treatment, while laser skin resurfacing often requires multiple treatments for optimal results. RF microneedling has little to no downtime, while laser treatments require several days for the skin to heal. Additionally, RF microneedling is less aggressive than lasers and can target deeper layers of the skin more effectively.

Benefits of RF Microneedling

RF microneedling has many benefits for patients looking to improve their skin tone, texture, and firmness. The treatment is minimally invasive with no downtime, so you can immediately return to your normal activities.

RF microneedling can:

  • Improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduce the appearance of large pores
  • Brighten and even out skin tone
  • Stimulate collagen production for improved firmness

RF Microneedling Consultation and Preparation

The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. O’Connor for a thorough assessment of your skin and individual needs. During the consultation, she will discuss any contraindications or disqualifications and recommend additional treatments that may be beneficial in achieving your desired results.

To prepare for RF microneedling, patients should stop using any exfoliating products or treatments and use moisturizers to keep the skin hydrated. Our Miami RF microneedling patients should also take care of themselves leading up to the treatment with plenty of rest, drinking lots of water, and avoiding alcohol and processed foods.

RF Microneedling Complementary Procedures

RF microneedling can be combined with other treatments to enhance the results. Depending on your individual needs, Dr. O’Connor may recommend adding a skin resurfacing treatment to maximize the results of your treatment and reduce overall downtime. Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF), nanofat, or exosomes can be used to improve the results of your treatment further. Dr. O’Connor specializes in curating the perfect state-of-the-art approach to help you rehabilitate and rejuvenate your skin.

Your RF Microneedling Procedure

During the RF microneedling procedure, a numbing agent is used to ensure maximum comfort for the patient. Once the skin has been properly anesthetized, Dr. O’Connor will use a handheld device with tiny needles that penetrate the skin and deliver radiofrequency energy. This energy stimulates collagen production and helps improve blood circulation in the treated area.

The entire procedure typically takes about an hour, depending on the size of the treated area.

RF Microneedling Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Most of our Miami RF microneedling patients see some results almost immediately, although the full effects of RF microneedling may take several weeks or months to be visible. The treated area may be red and slightly swollen for up to 24 hours after treatment; however, this resolves quickly with ice packs and over-the-counter medications.

To maintain results, we recommend avoiding excessive sun exposure and using a high-quality sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. We also recommend moisturizing and protecting your skin from environmental stressors like pollutants.

Follow-up visits are essential to ensure optimal results. During your follow-up visits, Dr. O’Connor will assess your progress and discuss any additional treatments that may be beneficial.
