Radiofrequency Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate your facial skin. The treatment is a form of controlled injury where the damage stimulates the growth of healthy new skin, which can benefit common skin issues like acne scars and wrinkles.
What is radiofrequency?
Radiofrequency, or RF for short, is an energy that when delivered beneath the skin, causes an increased collagen stimulation and has a skin tightening effect.
What is the procedure like?
We begin by numbing the area (face and neck). Once numb, the microneedling handpiece is used to treat each area of the face. The device has tiny gold-plated needles that are inserted into the skin. We make three passes on each area of the face and neck, varying the depth of the needles based on each area. We recommend a series of 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart for best results. You will notice an immediate affect from the treatment but your body will continue with its “supercharged” collagen production for the next 8-12 weeks following the procedure.
What can i expect after the treatment?
After the treatment, you will be red and the area will feel like you have a sunburn. Good news though! At Boss Gal, we offer a complimentary post-treatment cooling mask. The Microcurrent Dual Face Mask system by Franz Skincare is the most innovative sheet mask available today. Patented Tissue X™ technology in a dry mask is placed over a wet mask rich in antioxidants, vitamins and moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. The ion induced current delivers the skin soothing ingredients deeper into the skin to eliminate redness and promote healing.
What do i need to do once i go home?
The redness will subside after a few hours. You may have some swelling and your skin will likely feel tight. This is normal. It is best to not apply make up for 24 hours. Avoid active skincare products that contain glycolic acid or retinol (vitamin A) for 7 days. Wear at least SPF 30 and avoid direct sun exposure for the next 7 days.
